(The Hosting News) – Specifically made for the needs of dedicated web hosting providers, a new platform from technology manufacturer AMD was unveiled on Tuesday.
In the form of the AMD Opteron 3200 Series processor, the solution features what the company describes as better performance on prices, server reliability, ECC memory and more.
Discussing the matter in a press release, AMD corporate VP and GM (Commercial Business) Patrick Patla discussed how the new solution would help those in the web hosting community. “In today’s economic environment, dedicated hosting providers need their data centers to become profit centers faster than ever,” Patla stated.
“With the new AMD Opteron™ 3000 Series platform, Web and Cloud customers no longer have to compromise with desktop-class platforms in order to hit certain price points. Now they have all the benefits of a true server-class product at desktop-class price points,” Patla continued.
Among its specifics, the processor features a 2.7 GHz base frequency (capable of reaching 3.7), 16MB total cache support for the 8-core version and 8MB total cache support for the 4-core version.
The solution has already shipped through top tech providers including Dell, MSI, Fujitsu and Tyan. Meanwhile, Dell in particular expressed excitement regarding the release with company employee Steve Cumings referring to AMD as a “great partner.”
