Liquid Computing Announces Integration of LiquidIQ to Support Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ Processors
Los Altos, CA --
Liquid Computing, Inc., developer of a new class of scalable fabric computing system, today announced that its revolutionary computing platform LiquidIQ® now supports AMD's recently introduced Quad-Core AMD Opteron™ processors, the industry’s first native quad-core processor, which is now available in the market. The integration of LiquidIQ will provide dedicated communications pipes into each processor to yield significant performance advantages over traditional server implementations.
“The Liquid Computing system was designed with quad-core performance in mind, and we have seen some exciting early examples of linear scalability and performance improvements with the core and cache enhancements of Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors,” said Robert DeMartino, Vice President of World Wide Sales and Marketing at Liquid Computing. “We will continue to provide an infrastructure complement that truly improves total customer experience.”
Liquid Computing’s LiquidIQ platform provides a unique architecture for optimal quad-core performance, and is at the forefront of a growing trend toward denser computing. According to IDC, a leading industry analyst group, the transition from dual-core to quad-core servers will have a significant impact on the worldwide server market. The ability to move workloads to more powerful server nodes, based on quad-core processors, will likely continue the trend toward denser computing, especially in two-socket and four-socket servers.*
“Both AMD and Liquid Computing understand that architecture plays a critical role in the overall performance and efficiency of a computing system. With the combination of Liquid Computing’s fabric computing architecture and the native Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor built on AMD’s revolutionary Direct Connect Architecture, customers of the new LiquidIQ can benefit from superior linear scaling without performance degradation,” said Patrick Patla, Director of Product Management, Server/Workstation Division, AMD (NYSE: AMD). “We look forward to continuing our innovative hardware collaboration to help customers grow, adapt and respond in a dynamic business environment and to scale as their business demands require.”
As one of the leading providers of AMD Opteron processor-based server solutions and with the addition of Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors, Liquid Computing continues to expand its leadership in providing high-density, power-efficient and truly dynamic and adaptive systems for its customers.
