Intel has quietly invested in a startup that uses AMD CPUs to get rid of the “colostomy bag on the side of the switch” — Oxide has a plan that might make the world’s biggest tech companies a little nervous.

Intel is one of several companies that have committed $44 billion to USD in Oxide, a startup that wants to change the face of minimalist design on-premise and cloud servers.

Oxide’s mission revolves around providing cloud servers for purchase, not just lease, to companies that are primarily concerned with maintaining their IT infrastructure on-premise. The company combines this approach with the design of purpose-built hardware and software.
