Future Data Center Server Solutions business

AMD announced that it completed the acquisition of SeaMicro Inc, a company that specializes in energy-efficient and high bandwidth microservers. The deal saw AMD splash out $334 million. SeaMicro will now become AMD’s Data Center Solutions business.

AMD claims that the acquisition will “accelerate its strategy to deliver disruptive server technology and provide its customers serving Cloud-centric data centers with highly-differentiated AMD-based solutions beginning this year.” AMD claims it has thus armed itself with the tools needed to attack the fastest growing portion of the server market.

It's pretty clear that AMD isn’t planning on taking it easy, since it clearly said “beginning this year”. So, now we wait.
