Yesterday, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) released their new Opteron 6200 Series processors; more information can be found here. Concurrent with AMD’s release, Hewlett Packard (HP) also introduced their new ProLiant G7 servers featuring AMD’s Opteron 6200 Series processors. Working in unison, the Opteron 6200 Series processors and the ProLiant G7 servers have the potential to improve data center efficiency, scalability, and performance by 30 percent in supporting large-scale, virtualized, and database workloads.
Having been the leader in the server industry for the past 61 quarters, HP will offer one of the highest core density servers in the market with the advent of the ProLiant G7 series. The HP ProLiant G7 servers will use 2,048 cores per rack while delivering a 35 percent performance increase over legacy offerings. Not only will the ProLiant G7 server provide greater performance and scalability, but it will also deliver a smaller physical footprint by taking full advantage of its virtualization capabilities.
“Increasing performance and data efficiency while curtailing IT sprawl, complexity and costs in the data center continues to challenge most organizations,” said McLeod Glass, director, Marketing, Industry Standard Servers and Software, HP. “HP ProLiant G7 servers with AMD Opteron 6200 Series processors deliver a new level of compute density to support the most complex high-performance computing applications with fewer nodes and less power.”
The HP ProLiant G7 servers with AMD Opteron 6200 series processors are expected to be available November 29th.
