AMD releases new server

Written by Nick Farrell



Energy-efficient aimed at the cloud

AMD has been showing off its new energy-efficient server platform which is aimed at cloud computing.

The technology is the first major fruit of its acquisition of SeaMicro. AMD bought SeaMicro in March for $334 million to gain a foothold in smaller, lower-power computer server market. The new server platform works with processors made by AMD and has more bandwidth while using less electricity than previous products.

Andrew Feldman, formerly CEO of SeaMicro and now at AMD, told reporters at an event that AMD plans to market its chip technology along with SeaMicro's platforms to its corporate partners. This includes HP, Dell and IBM.

Feldman said that the platforms consume a quarter of the power and take up a sixth of the space of the typical servers that make up the massive "farms" that corporations now maintain.
