The problem for those server consumers....
Main problem for the server consumers (people renting servers from providers) is that costs don't come down. Thats just a fairy tale.
Just to give an example if a dedicated QuadCore server with 8GB of memory costs £70 a month. The company would then get these so called micro servers and still charge the same amount for the same amount of power. So the quadcore slim micro server is still going to be £70 a month.
In the real world prices don't go down, just profits go up.
Sometimes virtuals servers just don't cut it. No point buying a 400 zillion core virtual server only to have the smallest of time shares when trying to access the CPU. Probably more efficient to have a virtual server with a dedicated core or two and 100% time share on those assigned cores.
Would be nice if at least some of the micro server cost saving got passed down to the people that actually rent them.
icon? because private or public companies don't care about customers these days, just the amount they can fleece you for.
