Enterprise servers perform an increasingly formidable array of functions in categories such as messaging, network infrastructure, database service, online transaction processing, data mining, high-performance computing, and virtualized environments. All these functions require a high-speed and balanced system architecture with a robust and scalable architecture.
Professionals who need cutting-edge 32- and 64-bit performance choose workstations powered by AMD OpteronTM processors. Loaded with advanced power management features and built on AMD’s revolutionary Direct Connect Architecture, which provides outstanding system-level performance, platforms based on AMD OpteronTM processors provide ideal solutions for customers running applications in fields such as engineering, manufacturing, financial, entertainment, oil and gas, life sciences, or others that require world-class computational performance.
> Organizations that require fast database transactions or support for numerous users in variable workloads while maintaining rapid response times
> Industries with computational-intensive tasks for financial modeling and scientific applications
> Customers needing large memory capacity combined with high graphics throughput for complex workstation environments
Building on the AMD64 platform, AMD OpteronTM processors with Direct Connect Architecture eliminate the bottlenecks inherent in front-side bus architectures and feature unique optimizations designed to increase throughput and reduce latency, including HyperTransportTM technology and an integrated memory controller, which enable a balanced system architecture.
AMD is continuing to drive customer-centric technology leadership by making it easy to transition from dual- to quad-core processors. AMD OpteronTM processors with DDR2 memory are designed for a seamless upgrade path to quad-core computing to lower total cost of ownership (TCO), scale the performance of business applications, and increase capacity without incurring additional costs to the datacenter infrastructure.
