New 4P Server by IBM Joins Record-Breaking AMD Opteron™ 6000 Series-based Server Portfolio
VMWORLD, San Francisco —8/31/2010
The AMD Opteron™ 6000 Series platform, which redefined the server market by stripping away the long-standing “4P Tax” while driving record 2P and 4P performance, continues to add worldwide OEM partner platforms. Today IBM joins AMD’s global OEM partners, adding its x3755 M3 platform to a broad and powerful AMD Opteron 6000 Series platform portfolio now available for enterprise, HPC and SMB customers. In total, 45 unique AMD Opteron 6000 series-based platforms are expected to be available by the end of the year, including the HP ProLiant DL385 G7, Dell PowerEdge™ R815, and many others. Several of these systems will be on display at AMD booth #312 at this week’s VMworld conference.
AMD Opteron 6000 series platform-based systems by these global OEM partners include:
Additionally, Cray is using the AMD Opteron 6000 Series platform to bring production petascale computing to a new and expanded base of high performance computing users with the recently-announced shipment of its first multi-cabinet Cray XE6 supercomputer.
