Appro servers to support AMD’s new server platform

‘Maranello’ server platform to feature 8- and 12-core Opteron 6100 Series processor variant

By CBR Staff Writer

Appro said that it will support AMD’s upcoming server platform, currently codenamed ‘Maranello’, and scheduled for availability in the first quarter of 2010. The server platform is expected to fit within the new G34 socket and feature 8- and 12-core Opteron 6100 Series processor variant currently codenamed ‘Magny-Cours.’

John Lee, VP of advanced technology solutions of Appro, said: “Appro is proud to collaborate with AMD for the upcoming AMD Opteron 6100 Series processor-based server clusters solutions. Working together, Appro and AMD provide industry-leading performance-per-watt capabilities to meet the demands of our high-performance computing customers.”

Appro said that it expects to refresh its dual and quad-socket performance optimised and supercomputing building block server lines based on the next-generation ‘Maranello’ platform.

The company expects that its Hyper Cluster Series based on these new server platforms will offer optimised technologies for HPC such as DDR3, quad 16-bit HyperTransport 3 technology links with up to 6.4GT/s per link, and the AMD SR56x0 chipset with AMD-Vi technology and PCIe Gen 2.
