High-Efficiency A+ Server Solutions Boost Performance and Lower Total Cost of Ownership
San Jose, CA --
Supermicro Computer, Inc., the leader in high-efficiency servers, chassis and mainboards, today launched its first wave of server solutions optimized for Next-Generation AMD Opteron™ 8000, 2000 and 1000 Series processors. Supermicro’s new dual-core processor Socket F (1207) and single-processor Socket AM2 solutions improve energy-efficiency, boost performance and reduce total cost of ownership (TCO).
“Supermicro’s broad line of platforms based on Next-Generation AMD Opteron processors provide the channel with immediate availability of high-end solutions,” said Randy Allen, Corporate Vice President, Server and Workstation Division, AMD (NYSE: AMD). “With the industry leadership of AMD64 and the engineering and server leadership of Supermicro, customers of the new A+ server solutions can see enhanced performance and efficiency advantages to meet their compute-intensive needs.”
“Supermicro’s highly optimized quad Socket F systems in 1U and 4U chassis as well as its optimized dual Socket F systems in 1U chassis are available immediately,” said Alex Hsu, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Supermicro Computer, Inc. “With Supermicro system level benefits such as 16 DIMMs in a 1U platform or four processors in a 1U system, we are experiencing very strong demand for these new A+ server solutions.”
Leveraging high-efficiency (85% and higher) power supplies in combination with energy-efficient, high-performing DDR2 memory, Supermicro improves performance-per-watt and provides substantial energy savings to the end-user. These new systems also deliver AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-VTM) technology, which enhances virtualization software efficiency and reduces CPU overhead to help users consolidate applications.
