  2. 2. Top 10 Somewhat Random Observations1. Hard Drives are not dead!2. SSDs are fast but not cheap and endurance can be an issue3. Mainframes -> Minicomputers -> Desktop PCs -> Laptops -> Cell Phones (Disruptive Innovation always happens from below!)4. “Wimpy” cores will prevail (Atom? Bobcat? ARM?)5. ARM SOCs will succeed in servers (can ARM have a LEG up on the competition ?)6. SOCs will happen! Use Moore’s Law for system integration.7. Cloud Servers are different from Enterprise Servers!8. Dilemma: workload optimized servers vs “one size for all”9. Servers, Networks, & Data Centers will fail. MTTR matters!10. The Data Center is the Cloud Server! Optimize Holistically! “Don’t be encumbered by past history, go off and do something wonderful.”
