Get More Cloud Computing for Your Budget

Revolutionary AMD Opteron processors combine low power consumption with high core count to give your data center a powerful platform that not only scales well, but one that does so efficiently.

With ground-breaking architecture featuring up to 16 cores, AMD Opteron processors quickly scale to handle peak traffic loads with incredible energy efficiency to keep budgets under control.

Put AMD at the core of your cloud environment to get highly scalable performance, rock-solid dependability and true overall business value for your data center.

Scalable Performance

  • Achieve better server use and higher ROI per rack
  • Run more VMs1 with higher core density
  • Get more flexibility to tackle demanding cloud workloads
  • Get predictable and consistent throughput2
  • Enable quick response to fluctuating workloads
  • Protect your data without sacrificing performance
  • Direct Connect Architecture with HyperTransport™ 3.0 Technology provides enhanced interconnect speeds to handle fluctuating workload demands.
  • AMD-V™ Technology helps reduce the overhead of virtualization software.
  • AMD Turbo CORE Technology helps improve performance by turning unused power headroom into compute power.
  • HyperTransport Technology Assist increases coherent memory bandwidth.
  • AES–NI Instructions supports safe and efficient data protection with accelerated encryption and decryption.
  • Flex-FP FMAC units help improve throughput and boosts computational horsepower.

Rock-Solid Dependability

  • Get predictable and consistent throughput2
  • Enable quick response to fluctuating workloads
  • Protect your data without sacrificing performance
  • AMD-V™ Technology Extended Migration enables live migration of virtual machines between any AMD processor-based servers.
  • AMD-V™ Technology and hardware-assisted security features help protect sensitive data in a virtual environment.
  • AES–NI Instructions accelerate high-volume encryption and decryption activities for improved security and data protection.

True Business Value

  • Optimize data center floor space and power to get more out of every server dollar
  • Achieve tremendous price/performance per VM and per rack
  • AMD PowerCap Manager can set a fixed limit on a server’s processor power consumption, giving IT more control over the power envelope.
  • TDP Power Cap gives each processor a maximum power limit without reducing CPU frequencies.
  • AMD PowerNow!™ Technology with Independent Dynamic Core Technology allows processors and cores to dynamically operate at lower power and frequencies during periods of low activity.
  • AMD Smart Fetch Technology can reduce power consumption by allowing idle cores to enter a halt state.
  • AMD CoolCore™ Technology dynamically turns off sections of the processor when inactive, which reduces power consumption and heat.
  • AMD CoolSpeed Technology enables servers to automatically drop into low-power mode if the thermal environment exceeds safe operational limits.
  • AMD C1E dials back energy consumption in slow or idle states to provide significant data center power savings.
  • AMD C6 power gating shuts down clocks and power to idle cores, reduces idle CPU power and gives remaining cores needed headroom for frequency boost with AMD Turbo CORE Technology.
