AMD Business

June 2018 Previous month Next month

The AMD EPYC™ team is on the road again, and the next stop is HPE Discover. I’m headed to Las Vegas next week on the heels of our latest announcement, delivered by Dr. Lisa Su at Computex earlier this month, that AMD EPYC processors are at the core of the new HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 no compromise, single-socket server.

 

128832_EPYC_HPE_DL325Announcement_TW_1024x512_FNL.jpgIn case you missed it, this powerhouse new platform from HPE is designed to tackle dense virtualization and software-defined storage workloads. With up to 32 “Zen” processor cores from AMD EPYC, two terabytes of memory and 40 terabytes of NVMe storage in a 1U chassis, along with 40 PCIe lanes dedicated up to 10 NVMe drives, the HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 delivers up to 25 percent lower cost per virtual machine (VM) than the leading dual-processor competitor for virtualization[1]. Take a peek under the hood at our AMD Booth #146.

 

The HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 is one of a number of AMD-based HPE products we will be showing off next week. You can also check out the two-socket HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10, and HPE MicroServer, as well as a live virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) demo from the cloud.

 

In addition to the demos and action taking place at the AMD booth, here are a few other events within HPE Discover where you can find me and the team on the show floor:

 

  • Tuesday, June 19 from 8:30-9:00 AM CT: HPE Live interview with myself, Justin Hotard, Vice President and General Manager, Volume Global Business Unit, HPE.

 

  • Wednesday, June 20 from 9:00-10:00 AM PT: Breakout session with myself, Tom Lattin, Vice President, Server Options, HPE and Paul Brenner, Associate Director, Center for Research Computing, University of Notre Dame. Learn how AMD EPYC + HPE are building the foundation of your resilient enterprise, focusing on the HPE ProLiant DL385 and its security, agility and economic advantages for virtualization and software-defined storage environments. Register here to attend and receive location details.

 

  • Wednesday, June 20 from 11:00 AM-12:00 PM PT: Breakout session with Devin Fantasia, Senior Market Development Manager, Datacenter and Embedded Solutions Group, AMD, to dive deeper into the brand new HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 single-socket server that delivers 2P performance with 1P economics and efficiency[2]. Register here to attend and receive location details.

 

  • Wednesday, June 20 from 3:00-4:00 PM PT: Breakout session with Isidro Gonzalez, Senior GPU Market Development Manager, AMD.

High-performance, low-power JX products deliver optimal balance of 4K multimedia processing at competitive price point

 

AMD Embedded G-Series systems-on-a-chip (SoCs) have a small footprint design to support compact form factors and drive power efficiency without compromising on high-speed graphics and computing performance. AMD recently refreshed its AMD Embedded G-Series J Family of processors, formerly codenamed “Prairie Falcon,” now offering pin compatibility with the higher performance AMD Embedded R-Series SoC, formerly codenamed “Merlin Falcon,” to enable design continuity and continued scalability from high-end to low-end offerings.

 

JX Family Icons.jpgThese midrange AMD Embedded G-Series J SoCs deliver optimized performance-per-watt and stunning multimedia capabilities, including 4K high-speed video decode, at a competitive price point for a variety of applications in vertical markets such as thin client, digital signage, casino gaming, retail point of sale (POS), industrial/automation, military/aerospace, smart camera, set-top box (STB) and networking/communications equipment.

 

Additionally, the upgraded AMD Embedded G-Series J Family of processors are attractive for devices such as thin clients with exacting energy efficiency requirements, supporting thermal design profiles (TDPs) measuring less than 10W.

 

Consistent with a majority of AMD Embedded products, the AMD Embedded G-Series J Family has planned availability for up to 10 years, providing a long-lifecycle support roadmap for our customers.

One of the leading cloud computing companies in China, Tencent Cloud, has announced the immediate availability of the AMD EPYC based SA1 Cloud offering. Tencent Cloud is a secure, reliable, high-performance cloud compute service provider that integrates Tencent’s infrastructure capabilities with the advantages of its massive-user platform and ecosystem – best known for supporting hundreds of millions of people on Tencent’s QQ and WeChat applications. The AMD EPYC 7551 two-socket platform delivers the compute power needed for workloads ranging from social media platforms, gaming and e-commerce while providing a 30% lower cost structure per virtual machine for Tencent Cloud customers.

 

The SA1 Cloud offering is online now and is proving to be extremely popular for companies who are leveraging the cloud for their workloads. Tencent’s testing has also shown AMD EPYC to offer an exceptional level of performance at a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to other solutions. Tencent Cloud customers can access high-performance “Zen” core counts of 1, 4, 8 or 16 cores for virtual machines with access to up to 8 GB of memory per core.  The SA1 instance can be purchased via the Tencent Cloud Services portal.

 

With the addition of Tencent Cloud Services, AMD continues the momentum with cloud service providers that want to offer a compelling level of performance and features to their customers.
