GigOM: AMD Introduces its new SeaMicro for a Big Data World
In the first announcement following AMD’s acquisition of low power server startup SeaMicro earlier this year, AMD on Monday announced a new server platform based on the SeaMicro tech that’s optimized for big data and cloud computing. The newly-announced “SM15000″ server tech supports 5 petabytes of storage and brings storage closer to compute, making the system faster and more resilient.
In addition, AMD announced new compute cards for its server tech, one based on AMD’s Opteron processor, and one based on Intel’s Ivy Bridge processor. “We see offering both Intel and AMD support for the foreseeable future,” said Andrew Feldman, AMD General Manager and co-founder and CEO of SeaMicro. Both the AMD and Ivy Bridge based tech will be available in November.
