AMD (News - Alert) recently worked with Microsoft and will soon launch its award-winning AMD Opteron processor as a powerful and exceptional server solution for Windows Server 2012. The AMD Opteron processor is based on innovative core architecture, designed specifically for enhancing the enterprise application scalability, while allowing data centers and Web customers to handle virtualization and cloud workloads more easily.
The processors are all ready to integrate with Windows Server 2012 and maximize productivity, while delivering unparalleled sever price performance, and an attractive total cost of ownership [TCO] for customers.
AMD is a reputable semiconductor design motivator, introducing next-generation digital experiences and revolutionary processors that can power a diverse range of computing devices.
In addressing the increasing demand of business computing systems, both AMD and Microsoft (News - Alert) have leveraged their respective applications and technologies in ensuring extensive virtualization, managing large amount of the online data, and continuous move toward cloud computing.
To make it simple, Microsoft has made the all-embracing use of diverse servers powered by the AMD Opteron processors in Windows Azure public cloud, essential for business computing. With Windows Server 2012 integrating into the Opteron processors, customers can enjoy unanticipated scalability, with comprehensive support up to 64 virtual processors and 1 terabyte of memory for one virtual machine.
With this, they can also enjoy up to 4000 virtual machines per cluster.
Congratulating Microsoft on its release of Windows Server 2012, the corporate vice-president and general manager of Servers, AMD, Suresh Gopalakrishnan, said AMD Opteron 4200 and 6200 Series processors are ready to deliver the advantages of Windows Server 2012.
