With NFV, much of the intelligence currently built into proprietary, specialized hardware is accomplished with software running on general purpose hardware. The resulting solution is a fully virtualized communications infrastructure – including virtual servers, storage and networks – and simplifies deployment and management for network and telecommunications service providers. With both 64-bit ARM and x86, AMD is paving the way for a new class of service providers to design and deploy an infrastructure which meets their performance, cost and complexity requirements.

Really interesting idea AMD.
i dont get it???
I'd be pretty okay with having ARM APU powered NAS-ish systems that could handle some other types of serving as well (small website, personal email, etc.)
