    AMD vs Intel; Cloud Computing

    Which brand processor would you consider being best suited for the duties of a Cloud's HV servers?

    How are AMD's 12-core processors VS similarly priced Intel's (6-cores) when used in a busy Cloud environment?

    It's a wash, honestly.

    We have deployed both 2-Socket Intel Quads (8 real + 8 HT cores total) and 2-Socket AMD 8-core CPUs.

    Unless I bring up the hostname of the box I am on, I cannot tell a difference.

    I can tell you that the AMD solutions have been substantially cheaper in our experience.
