AMD unveils the specs for its first range of ARM-based processors aimed at the server market.
The new cards take aim at the high-performance supercomputing market with up to 16GB GDDR5 memory and 2,816 stream processors.
The test used 168,000 virtual machines on 576 physical hosts, with the first 75,000 virtual machines being deployed in six hours and thirty minutes. This, according to AMD, is the largest ever known demonstration of OpenStack scalability.
AMD has big plans for ARM in microservers, embedded and low-power clients. But where does that leave the mainstream PC and server markets?
AMD Opteron X-Series APUs running Fedora Linux are an important development for companies looking to transition to x86 APU servers but who don't want to introduce new tools and software platforms into the IT environments.
ARM-based servers haven't taken over the data center yet, but the runway is getting crowded. Can ARM-based servers really get 25 percent of the data center market by 2019 as AMD hopes?
The AMD Opteron A1100 series server chip, which features 28-nanometer process technology, will be sampling in the next few weeks.
Verizon plans to transition seven of its 53 data centers to AMD SeaMicro hardware in order to power "the world's most resilient, flexible, secure, and scalable infrastructure platforms."
AMD wants to be more than just an alternative to Intel. It wants to lead ARM's gains in the data center as 2014 shapes up to be a pilot year for hyperscale servers.
Server sales fell in the vast majority of geographical markets during the first quarter of 2013, but Dell still managed to boost the number of units it shipped.
Can Open Compute go head to head with the likes of HP, IBM, and Dell in the datacenter?
AMD's SeaMicro SM15000 server has been certified for both compute and storage portions of OpenStack.
With all the major PC players looking to diversify beyond desktops, notebooks, and servers, AMD has hired two engineers who both used to work at the company before moving on to Apple and Qualcomm.
AMD is the first to unveil its Open Compute Project "open source" motherboard. Called the Open 3.0, the board is suitable for cloud server, storage servers, and high-performance computing clusters.
Five 4U servers equipped with 25 AMD Radeon-powered GPUs linked together using an Infiniband switched fabric link can crunch through up to 348 billion password hashes per second.
The 4300 Series and 3300 Series processors are based on AMD's Piledriver architecture and, according to the chipmaker, are ideal for cloud providers, web hosts and SMBs.
Hewlett-Packard leverages its R&D strength and manufacturing experience here to launch five Itanium-based Integrity servers.
In the short term, ARM chips will continue to have a low-power advantage over processors from x86 chipmakers like Intel and AMD, but eventually this advantage will disappear, according to AMD.
AMD executives asserted that the chipmaker will be the first company to offer both 64-bit ARM and x86 server processors.
