AMD buys SeaMicro low-powered server

SeaMicro low-power server

AMD has announced plans to obtain SeaMicro low-powered server, a Silicon Valley startup that specializes in building high-density low-power servers, in a cash and stock deal valued at $334 million. The move came as a little of a surprise contemplating all the servers SeaMicro presently sells are according to Intel Xeon or low-power Atom processors, but AMD clearly sees a future for Bulldozer and upcoming architectures within the server space.
