I would think that cloud usage is pretty inelastic. It affects every provider equally, and the alternative is building a new datacenter of ones own.

So usage of existing hardware goes up by 30% and everything gets replaced on its already planned scheduled which has to pretty short at any rate.

Unless someone has recently built out a **** tonne of AMD then everybody is in the same boat.

Still, the game theory outcome is that everyone has to upgrade as fast as they can and eat the cost, same as always.

The greatest temptation is to not patch or not patch properly and just assume data theft isn't your problem, its your shareholders.
