AMD announced that Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors exclusively power the innovation behind the world’s first blade server designed specifically to eliminate performance bottlenecks for virtual server hosting, the HP ProLiant BL495c virtualization blade. Businesses requiring the flexibility to support more virtual machines per server can now choose from a broad suite of Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor-based servers from HP, ranging from blades to high-performance multi-processor platforms. With launch of the HP ProLiant BL495c, 35 systems based on Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors are now shipping from global OEMs.
Commenting on this update, Patrick Patla, general manager, Server and Workstation Business, AMD said “Businesses continue to face memory and I/O constraints as they implement virtualization solutions across more mission-critical workloads. The Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor has once again proved to be the processor of choice in helping alleviate these demands. With Direct Connect Architecture and AMD-Virtualization technology, the Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor is shaping the direction of virtualization by empowering IT managers with more virtual machines and leading x86 virtualization performance.”
Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor-based servers take advantage of AMD-V technology with Rapid Virtualization Indexing. Rapid Virtualization Indexing is the industry’s only x86 virtualization technology that includes hardware support for a second level of address translation, allowing virtual machines to more directly manage memory, which can help dramatically reduce latency and thereby improve performance across many virtualized applications.
