Welcome to the second part of our Debunking Datacenter Compute Myths series. In the first part of this series, which you can see here, as well as in this second part, The Next Platform sat down with Lynn Comp, vice president in AMD’s server business unit, to talk about some persistent datacenter compute myths that need to be addressed.
Here are the next five that we discussed:
- Myth 6: You need an entirely new architecture or ISA if you want to really run an efficient cloud native environment at scale.
- Myth 7: A monolithic die is better than a chiplet architecture.
- Myth 8: You can’t migrate VMs across CPU vendors within the X86 architecture.
- Myth 9: Two-socket servers offer better resiliency than single-socket servers.
- Myth 10: You need to change applications to support the security features in modern processors.
You undoubtedly have your own strong opinions about these, and may have some others to suggest, so feel free to comment on these two stories to expand the conversation and keep it going.
