SYS-CON Radio Interviews Ben Williams, AMD

LinuxWorld Conference & Expo 2004 San Francisco

SYS-CON Radio Interviews Ben Williams, VP of AMD's Enterprise Server/Workstation Business Microprocessor Business Unit, live at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo 2004 in San Francisco about AMD's remarkable rise and rise and the company's highly active global role in the unfolding Linux story.

As the premier provider of x86 architecture in the marketplace, AMD has seen the Linux community embrace Opteron, with partners like HP, IBM, and Sun adopting AMD technology and SUSE LINUX, Red Hat and others.

The enterprise has taken Linux out of the development centers and into deploymeny, into the data center, says Williams. There are naysayers out there, but Linux is even being talked about on the desktop, he adds, and has moved into vertical market spaces like the financial community. "It's a technology waterfall," he says, "and it's migrating down into the regular enterprise and the data center."
