AMD announces new Opteron platform for cloud computing
Press release, June 23; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 23 June 2010]

AMD has announced availability of the new AMD Opteron 4000-series platform, the first server platform designed to meet the specific requirements of cloud, hyperscale data center, and SMB customers needing highly flexible, reliable, and power-efficient 1P and 2P systems. This platform is also available for high-end embedded systems such as telecom servers, storage, and digital signage, through AMD Embedded Solutions.

Systems from Acer, Dell, Hewlett-Packard (HP), SGI, Supermicro, ZT Systems, and numerous other channel partners are expected to start shipping today and in the coming months, said AMD.

The AMD Opteron 4000-series platform offers four- and six-core performance at less than 6W per core, reducing power up to 24% over the previous generation, and allows more than double the servers within the same power budget as previous generation platforms.

In addition to on-going savings associated with ultra power-efficient platforms, the AMD Opteron 4100-series processor offers price points as low as US$99 and is a no-compromise, trusted server-class processor with full feature sets.

The AMD Opteron 4100-series processor is ideal for custom-designed servers because it allows for smaller heat sinks, power supplies, and fans, as well as low voltage memory to help improve power efficiency. Depending on how the system will be used, customization also allows unnecessary, power-consuming features to be eliminated, further driving cost and power efficiency.

This platform is available with embedded industry-standard five plus two years longevity and provides the power, price, and performance balance required for high-end, commercial-class embedded systems with specific target markets and long product life cycles, said AMD.

While highly flexible, the AMD Opteron 4000-series platform is chipset-consistent with the 8- and 12-core AMD Opteron 6000 series platform and is planned to support the new Bulldozer core, planned for 2011.
