Why Major Cloud Providers are Deploying Cloud Native Processors
"Service providers and digital-first enterprises are at the forefront of the next major compute infrastructure build-out. These organizations understand that agility, flexibility, and innovation start with compute,” said Neil MacDonald, executive vice president and general manager, Compute, HPE. “They also realize that traditional ODM boxes simply won’t cut it in a market that demands depth of IP, performance, reliability, security, and control. This is where HPE steps in and why we chose Ampere."
And in an article in CRN, he stated. “the Ampere processor on ProLiant addresses the many challenges faced by cloud service providers and digital-first enterprises including budget, economics, space, power efficiency and sustainability. This will enable more efficient infrastructures in those use cases.” Mike Little, CEO of Green Tea Technology, an HPE GreenLake born in the cloud partner, called the deal a break out innovation move by HPE that will open the door to new opportunities for partners.
“This is a big win for Ampere,” he said. “This is all about the scalability you need for high performance compute with massive parallel processing. It’s a big game changer. Before this it was an all AMD and Intel ProLiant market. Now they have the Ampere ARM processor!”
“Today, we are delighted to announce that we are offering more choice to customers, with the addition of Arm-based machines to the Tau VM family. Powered by Ampere® Altra® Arm-based processors, T2A VMs deliver exceptional single-threaded performance at a compelling price, making them ideal for scale-out, cloud-native workloads.
