Re: Lots of competition
Tackling the development of "processors designed for the special needs of cloud servers," seems to be filling a growing need, but I'm skeptical that all the startups are going to be big winners. It's still a big gamble in this fast growing field.

Re: Lots of competition
It would seem that although "more memory while controlling power, size and costs," is the way to go in a logical development there's probably going to lots of competition in that area to outdo Intel, but I would think the light based circuit idea if successful in the near future will be the real game changer.

Re: Lots of competition
I thought even AMD had some ARM chip designs for cloud services hardware... but I'm not sure if AMD is really following through with those chips.

ARM chips FTW
It's fascinating that ARM designs are gaining ever more diverse applications in data centers and in handheld devices as well. SoftBank must be doing well!

Custom chips = more security?
If security by obscurity works at all then custom chips that no one else uses might be somewhat more secure than generic hardware--- but of course there's still plenty of other vulnerabilities to exploit that have nothing to do with Intel chips.

Lots of competition
There is competition such as ThunderX an ARM processor from Cavium, but I think it's good that people are looking at different compute systems.
