Once people realize this was way manipulated it should pop past 4 really fast. There is demand for metals, and companies are hoarding.
In a big victory for micro servers, Verizon is announcing today that it is selecting Advanced Micro Devices‘ SeaMicro servers to build out several data centers with thousands of energy-efficient servers.
SeaMicro pioneered a category of servers with a sea of low power, simple computing cores, or brains. AMD acquired SeaMicro last year for $334 million, and the Verizon deal means that AMD is getting a big payoff from that strategy, said Andrew Feldman, corporate vice president and general manager of AMD’s server group and the founder of SeaMicro.
In an interview with VentureBeat, Feldman said that Verizon had a vision for public cloud services that are more flexible and subject to much deeper control. He said he hopes the deal will be a sign of more good things to come for micro servers, which are the fastest-growing part of the server market.
“They’re using our server infrastructure from soup to nuts,” Feldman said. “This is very exciting, and they immediately will become one of our largest customers.”
Kevin Clark, director of cloud platform engineering at Verizon, said in an interview with VentureBeat that his company still use a variety of computing architectures for its data centers. But the company will now build several data centers with thousands of SeaMicro servers as Verizon builds out its new global cloud platform, Verizon Cloud, and cloud-based object storage service.
“We’ve wanted to solve the problems of cloud flexibility for a long time, and we immediately saw the benefits of what SeaMicro has to offer,” Clark said. “The cost and efficiency are unparalleled. It’s very important that we make it painless to set up a cloud.”
SeaMicro used Intel Atom chips before AMD acquired it, and it still offers several models with Atom chips. But the new SeaMicro SM15000 will use AMD Opteron chips, Feldman said. That’s a blow to Intel, which has the leading market share in chips for micro servers.
never even heard of origin. And I build pc's... Origin is just another hyped up company that over charges for something anyone could do themselves.
Just loo at the charts! the fed announcement. who had inside knowledge for that massive jump? and who knew to sell at when? PUMP AND DUMP. Take your money out. With the debt crisis again, and more EU trouble in the news, the markets are going to go south again. and fast.... better invest in tangibles. Like Guns ammo and gold. ROFL
Intel is a bloated overweight gorilla bully. When PC sales evaporate, and companies like Apple, and Dell ditch their CPU's in favor of more power efficient ones, they will be stuck with that massive overhead.
Wrong. It is a mutual agreement. AMD (entity) no matter who owns AMD, allows intel to use the 64 bit license in exchange for x86 license. Saying that no one can buy AMD is a stinking LIE! and you damn well know it. If Intel wants to be broken up like AT&T sure, but I doubt they want that.
How in the world are they not selling these things like hotcakes? I mean. border patrol should place a huge order immediately. Is this vapor ware? Does it even work? I don't see how DHS, major carriers, aren't placing huge gigantic orders. This stock should be worth at least a billion dollars.
This stock is a classic pump and dump. It will not make it to 4,50 before manipulators dump it.
