What's wrong to designg for a specific workload...

.... if that specific workload is all that I need and core to my business?

I understand "cloud" providers need more flexible hardware, but a lot of business are very specific instead.

I can't see, for example, HFT users going after shopping for a "software defined server" instead of getting hardware designed to shave the last picosecond for their trading algorithms.
