For more than a few large-scale data center operators and supercomputer centers in the world, AMD's Opteron processors are still an important part of their infrastructure. But over the past few years, as Intel has got its Xeon act together and AMD has had some issues (to put it politely) the tier-one server makers have not exactly given Opteron a lot of love. Yet it may not matter all that much, now that the companies who are official suppliers of Open Compute iron can start peddling systems based on the "Roadrunner" Opteron motherboard.
IBM is opening a Power Systems Linux Center in Beijing, China, in the hopes of getting more local ISVs interested in its Power Systems iron and luring them away from x86-based systems.
