The AMD Opteron servers' family is a new step in the development of the network hardware. Models 880, 280, 180 from this line have the highest performance in the world for the X86 servers that have from one to eight processors and workstations.
The AMD Opteron servers' processors support a Direct Connect Architecture and a Hyper Transport technology. These processors provide the best performance for the server, based on the X86 architecture. The AMD Opteron servers allow to perform a transfer to 64 capacity calculations in the mode that is convenient for clients. At the same time, you will not have any looses of your investments with the X86 technology.
The AMD Opteron servers have very high technical parameters. Testing of AMD Opteron with CPU rate 1600 Hhz vs1800Hhz processor of another producer proved that it had a much higher performance at equal working conditions.
The AMD Opteron servers' family includes AMD PowerNow! That is modern technology with the optimized power management. This technology permits to decrease a power supply for the corporative information technologies departments' structures and workstations. The AMD achieves good results with the usage of this technology by decreasing of the servers' performance in the periods of low loading.
The implementation of these technologies establishes the leadership of the AMD Opteron servers by a specific performance per unit of the supplied electric energy. The AMD PowerNow! Advantages are not restricted only with a power supply decreasing. They give an additional protection for the investments to the hardware platforms for corporative server environments. Requirements to these environments are growing all the time; thus, decreasing of the loading for cooling and ventilation systems gives a possibility to achieve high results.
The AMD servers' power supply optimization proposes many advantages for clients:
- A dynamic change of the processors' performance, depending on the loading, allows the system functioning in the optimal mode. An economical effect is a decrease of expenditures for a power supply and it helps to save investments to the corporative IT budget.
- A platform with an optimized power supply helps decrease a level of the heat generation and noise for the servers and workstations.
- Power, supplied by the central processor in the idle mode, can be decreased by seventy five percent.
Actually, this technology is one of the most efficient among the existing solutions.
The AMD Corporation realizes that clients appreciate a possibility for moving to new technologies. That is one of the reasons why the leading OEM-producers propose the corporative solutions, based on the AMD Opteron servers. Microsoft Treasury is one of the most popular companies among them. Hence, the AMD technologies are very popular due to its high quality and meeting clients' requirements for the most part. Consequently, the AMD provides a softer pricing policy than Macintosh and Tyan. That is the reason why the AMD solutions are known as an etalon of high quality and comparatively low prices.
