Silicon Mechanics Now Offers AMD Opteron 6300 Series Processors

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) (PRWEB) December 05, 2012 Silicon Mechanics, Inc., a leading manufacturer of rackmount servers, storage, and high-performance computing hardware, announces that that it now offers the new AMD Opteron 6300 Series processors, which deliver superior performance and scalability for virtualized server platforms central to private and public cloud deployments, big data systems, and high-performance computing (HPC) clusters. The new processors are now available in most of Silicon Mechanics’ Rackform nServ server configurations.

The AMD Opteron 6300 Series processors provide up to 3.5 GHz base frequency and up to 3.8 GHz using AMD Turbo CORE technology for a performance boost when demanded by specific applications. Up to 16 cores per socket are available for scaling on thread-intensive environments. AMD-P power management features maximize performance per watt across workloads while giving IT managers more control over their data center power profiles.

The new AMD Opteron 6300 Series processors achieve up to 24 percent higher performance than prior generation AMD Opteron 6200 Series processors in SPECjbb2005, a key server benchmark used to evaluate Java performance, a critical element for next-generation datacenters’ software ecosystem. Per-watt performance is as much as 37 percent higher than the prior generation.

“Our AMD Opteron 6300 Series processors offer enterprises significant performance gains, high energy efficiency, and cost-effectiveness,” said John Williams, vice president, Server Marketing and Business Development, AMD. “Datacenters running robust large-scale systems can now take advantage of the excellent performance while also obtaining compelling TCO.” In virtualized private and public cloud deployments, the AMD Opteron 6300 Series processors deliver the power efficiency needed for dense compute platforms designed for cloud computing. This generation offers more resources that drive better performance and scalability for virtualized environments. This can translate to low cost per virtual machine, the ability to host more virtual machines for greater consolidation while maintaining service level agreements, and the capability of deploying more robust virtual machines with more virtual CPUs enabled by high core counts, large memory capacity, and excellent bandwidth.

In big data deployments, the AMD Operon 6300 Series processors offer scalable, predictable performance and I/O expandability, as well as an exceptional balance of performance and value for I/O bound applications. Installations based on the AMD Opteron 6300 Series processor can provide the balance of physical cores and local hard drives needed for big data workloads like Apache Hadoop.

AMD continues to drive HPC performance with the AMD Opteron 6300 Series processors using optimizations in compilers and libraries, combined with the next-generation core architecture. Key HPC applications, including molecular dynamics workloads LAMMPs and NAMD, benefit significantly from this approach, with enhanced power efficiency and more application performance within the same power budget.
