AMD EPYC solutions can deliver up to 45% TCO savings

AMD EPYC™ Delivers Outstanding Value for Virtualized IT Environments

Virtualization and Software Defined Infrastructure is critical in driving increased productivity and IT automation in the datacenter.  AMD EPYC™ processor-powered dual socket servers and innovative “No Compromise” single socket servers are ideal for Virtualized IT environments. AMD EPYC solutions can deliver up to 45% TCO savings versus Intel Xeon Scalable, allowing you to make the most of your IT budget and enabling you to use savings to further streamline IT operations and add value to your business.2

Software Defined Infrastructure Optimized

The average age of servers in many datacenters today is >5 years old. These servers may be less performant and require more maintenance and need to be replaced. AMD EPYC™ processors provide excellent solutions to replace aging server and storage infrastructure. AMD EPYC based servers with best-in-class core counts1, can optimize your virtualized environment by enabling VM dense solutions, which can reduce server counts, reduce licensing costs by up to 64% and reduce TCO by up to 45% over three years compared to competitive Intel Xeon Scalable two-socket solutions2
