AMDs SeaMicro Technology: The Data Center Computer Platform

  1. 1. AMDS SEAMICRO TECHNOLOGYThe Data Center Computer PlatformAndrew FeldmanSeptember 10, 2012
  2. 2. REVOLUTIONIZING DATA CENTER ECONOMICSSolve the data center’s most important problems: power, space and bandwidthServers that use 1/4 the power, take 1/6 the space, and deliver 16x the bandwidth of today’s best in class serversPlug and play x86: requires no modifications to software | SeaMicro | Sept 10, 2012
  3. 3. SEAMICRO HAS DEFINED INNOVATION IN THE SERVER MARKET Invented the micro server First to bring small core servers to market January 2012 Launch SM10000-XE First to use super computing fabric • The most energy efficient Xeon® First to use single socket large cores server every built • Based on Freedom™ ASIC Achieve millions of hours production deployment July 2011 • 2nd generation Freedom super Launch SM10000-64HD compute Fabric • Builds on the Feb 2011 SM10000-64 foundation • 1.5 X compute density Launch SM10000-64 • Further reduces best in class • Adds 64 bit capabilities power draw by up to 20% • Doubles OS June 2010 addressable memory Launch SM10000 • Reduces best in class power draw by 25% • Redefines the server market • Most energy efficient server ever built | SeaMicro | Sept 10, 2012
