Reduce IT costs by 90%. Replace 120 servers by one rackmount cluster-in-a-box

We produce a server that replaces 60 Intel based servers on Machine Learning, Big Data, and other compute intensive tasks. It runs the same code, but costs 1/7 to purchase and consumes 1/25 as much energy. It pays for itself in one year of electricity savings alone. We achieve this 60x by focusing on the 1% of server customers who have compute intensive workloads, like Machine Learning. We invented a new micro-architecture that "breaks the rules" -- it gives little advantage on most kinds of workload, but 60x on our $7B segment.(12 patents so far) We will offer it both as a rack mount server, and also as an AWS compatible Cloud offering, via our partners Stratoscale and Rackspace. We supply the hardware and split the revenues. Because 100 of our machines is equivalent to 6000 Intel servers, we cut our customer's AWS bill in half. Response has been overwhelming. In year 5 we will close a sale of 2000 or more machines into top tier. That's $150M of profit for $3B valuation.
