Intel has quietly invested in a startup that uses AMD CPU to get rid of the “colostomy bag on the side of the switch” – Oxide has a plan that could make the world’s largest tech companies a little worried

Intel is one of several companies that have poured $44 billion into Oxide, a startup that aims to change the face of on-premise and cloud servers with a minimalist design.

Oxide’s mission revolved around providing cloud-centric servers for purchase, rather than just rental, for companies primarily concerned with keeping IT infrastructure local. The company combines this approach with co-designing hardware and software that are fit for purpose.
