Submission + - Gelsinger Shoots Down EMC on ARM->

Nerval's Lobster writes: "EMC president and incoming VMware chief executive Pat Gelsinger most likely shot down any hope that the company’s storage arrays would be built around the ARM architecture.

Gelsinger, who also helped orchestrate the VMworld show in San Francisco this week, presented an Aug. 29 keynote at the Hot Chips conference in Cupertino, Calif. Afterward, an audience member told Gelsinger that as many as 25 percent of all servers could be shipped around the low-power ARM architecture, then asked if Gelsinger agreed with that estimate.

EMC previously shifted its product lines to Intel processors. Gelsinger told the audience member that the situation is unlikely to change, even if ARM could deliver workloads at a fraction of the power of an X86 chip."
