Don’t let anybody tell you that computing power — meaning processors supplied by Intel, AMD, LSI Logic, IBM, Sun Microsystems and others — isn’t the primary driver for innovation in enterprise data centers.

A lot of companies are coming out with new products based on superfast and lower-power multicore chips. You can find those stories here on eWEEK. That being said, EMC will be making a significant announcement on April 14.
