Verizon plans to transition seven of its 53 data centers to AMD SeaMicro hardware in order to power "the world's most resilient, flexible, secure, and scalable infrastructure platforms."
Look out ARM, SeaMicro is rolling out additional x86 microserver solutions.
AMD's SeaMicro SM15000 server has been certified for both compute and storage portions of OpenStack.
AMD has introduced new gear based on technology picked up in its SeaMicro acquisition, which lets high-density servers manage vast quantities of storage, potentially transforming the cloud datacentre.
The chipmaker beat expectations for its first-quarter revenue, but recorded a net loss of $590m, following charges arising from its revised agreement with GlobalFoundries
Chipmaker AMD has completed its $334m (£209m) acquisition of server maker SeaMicro, a longtime partner of rival processor giant Intel.With the completion of the deal on Monday, SeaMicro becomes AMD Data Center Server Solutions.
AMD has completed its $334 million acquisition of SeaMicro, less than a month since the chip giant suddenly announced its intentions to buy.
The low-power processors are designed for web hosts that want a reasonable degree of throughput without consuming too much power and will compete with Intel's Xeon E3 chips
AMD has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Intel ally SeaMicro, giving the chipmaker a 'dense' server fabric to sell to large web companies
