Atipa Adopts Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ Processors in New Line of Vision Servers
AMD’s Native Quad-Core Architecture Helps Improve Servers’ Performance-per-Watt for Total Cost of Ownership Benefits
Lawrence, Kansas --
Atipa Technologies, an established high performance computing (HPC) vendor, announced today that it will be adding Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ processors to the Atipa Vision server product lines and Linux-based clusters. AMD’s native quad-core architecture places all four cores on a single piece of silicon so data can move between cores at full speed for more efficient data sharing to help improve the performance, memory scalability, and overall system efficiency that high-performance computing customers demand.
“By delivering solutions powered by Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors, customers can maintain their current thermal infrastructure while benefiting from improvements in application performance and system performance-per-watt to further leverage existing investments,” said Mike Zheng, President of Atipa Technologies. “We’re excited to collaborate with AMD to play an increasing role in the global community to unlock the full potential of AMD’s native multi-core technology.”
Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors offer exceptional linear scaling in systems with up to eight-sockets (32 cores per system). Customers can effectively grow, adapt, and respond in a dynamic business or scientific environment. Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors are built on AMD’s revolutionary Direct Connect Architecture, where processors are directly connected to one another, and an I/O and memory subsystem are also directly connected to each processor, reducing bottlenecks inherent in traditional front-side bus architectures.
“Atipa recognizes that customers are demanding solutions that increase performance capabilities without requiring additional costs to the datacenter infrastructure due to increased energy consumption or disruptive technology,” said Patrick Patla, Director of Product Management, Server/Workstation Division, AMD (NYSE: AMD). “Customers of the new Atipa Vision server products can realize advanced performance-per-watt computing delivered by native Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors with Direct Connect Architecture, an enhanced cache structure, and dynamic power management capabilities, helping them increase business productivity.”
“The convergence of server technology and processor performance will add up to enormous opportunities for business in health care in the remote areas, as well as data interchange and virtual education across a wide range of industries,” said Dana Chang, Vice President of Atipa Technologies.
“Information services are another area that can heavily leverage the superior performance of Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors. Federal, state and local governments are in desperate need of centralizing the control of a balanced and efficient information database. This will enable them to better embrace social concerns and problem-solving law enforcement and finally build a world-class information network,” Ms. Chang added.
