AMD launched Opteron A1100 System-on-Chip designed to improve data center performance.
Jointly with its software and hardware partners, AMD is accelerating time-to-deployment of ARM-based systems and driving forward ecosystem support for ARM in the datacenter.
“The ecosystem for ARM in the datacenter is approaching an inflection point, and the addition of AMD’s high-performance processor is another strong step forward for customers looking for a datacenter-class ARM solution,” said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, Enterprise Solutions, AMD.
Aylor added that the macro trend of convergence between networking, storage and servers is an important catalyst in this evolution. Customers now have access to 64-bit ARM processors.
The AMD Opteron A1100 SoC represents a key milestone for establishing ARM in the datacenter as well.
The AMD Opteron A1100 Series SoC is the first 64-bit ARM Cortex-A57-based platform from AMD.
Utilizing ARM Cortex-A57 processors with high-speed network and storage connectivity and energy efficiency, the AMD Opteron A1100 Series SoC delivers a balanced total cost of ownership for storage, Web and networking workloads.
