The price of an HP DL385 with AMD Opteron processors Model 6134 (1ku pricing $523) was used as a proxy because pricing for AMD Opteron 6100and 6200 Series processor-based servers is expected to be very similar. Server configurations are identical except on the specifications listed above and includestandard warranty, power supply and no OS. Difference in processor speeds is based on the top SPECint®_rate2006 results published by, or submitted by AMD to,SPEC as of 10/26/2011 for 2P servers with the above identified processors and may differ from the performance of the servers priced and described above.

Servers were configured with 64GB RAM, 72GB 15K hdd, and 3yr base warranty and large enterprise pricing is from www.hp.com as of 11/4/11. VMware vSphere pricing not included, assuming both servers configured with versions 5.0 or 4.1u2, which are the same price for AMD- and Intel-based servers. ²AMD Opteron 6200 Series-based 2P servers can support up to 32VMs each, assuming 1 VM per core. 21 servers fit in a rack x 32 VMs = 672 VMs per rack. Intel Xeon 5600 Series-based 2P servers can support up to 12VMs each, based on core counts listed at www.intc.com/pricelist.cfm as of 10/24/11, which equates to 21 servers x 12 VMs = 252 VMs. # of vCPUs for 16 VMs = max cores/16.25 | AMD Opteron™ 6200/4200 Series Processors Launch Presentation | Under Embargo until 12:01 a.m. EST, November 14, 2011 |
