As we transition from 2013, the drumbeat of new servers and new CPU offerings from Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Intel, IBM, HP, Dell, Cisco, and a variety of ARM licensees including Texas Instruments (TI), AMD, and Calexa continues. Forrester expects to see 64-bit ARM CPUs, further hyperdensity offerings from tier one vendors following on the heels of HP's Moonshot server, and disruptive changes to flash memory technology in servers. This report offers seven key predictions for the server and data center universes in 2014 and lays out Forrester's recommendations for how infrastructure and operations (I&O) pros should respond.
