Keep business flowing with AMD-V’s virtual client management

AMD Virtualization (AMD-V™) technology is a set of unique on-chip features that enables AMD processor-based clients to run multiple operating systems and applications on a single machine. AMD-V technology helps you to effectively run critical Line of Business (LoB) applications – so the flow of business never stops. ​

​Harness the Power of Up to 12 Compute Cores1

Boost the efficiency of your virtualization software at the hardware level with AMD Virtualization technology (AMD-V™). AMD-V’s unique on-chip features help AMD-processor-based clients run multiple applications and operating systems on a single machine for better resource use and effectiveness.

AMD-V™ is a Standard Feature in every AMD PRO A-Series APU.

Because every detail matters, virtualization technologies are designed into every 2014 AMD PRO A-series APUs. And because they are built on open standards, you maintain your ability to choose based on what is best for your business and your bottom line, rather than being locked in by proprietary solutions. 

AMD-V™ supports the following functionality:

Client Side Virtualization: Operating systems such as Microsoft Windows 7 (and above) ship with a Windows XP Mode that allows two operating systems to run separately, securely, and uninterrupted via client hypervisors.2

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI): Instead of a traditional operating system, client virtual machines are hosted on a hardware virtualization center on the data center server.

Blade PC, OS Streaming, and Terminal Services: AMD PRO A-series processors offer a technology option that can be tailored for a variety of computing architectures, whether it’s the performance and isolation requirements of VDI and Terminal Services virtualization, or the low power need and memory requirements demanded by Blade PC and OS streaming with concurrent users and applications.
