Is there enough financial incentive?
Is there enough financial incentive to switch? I think there is, but the main reason is to get into a design stream that produces a barebones server for the next generation data center. Redundant power supplies, redundant fans, even graphical processor units found on today's servers may all be dispensed with in a cloud setting. There, the software will detect pending device failure, shift workloads elsewhere, shutdown the server and schedule a component replacement. Also, placement of cables and wiring, placement in the rack, all of these things change as you move into a large scale-out or cloud setting. If the cost were the same, Fidelity, others would still want to do it.
