June 07, 2012 – Sunnyvale, USA (Techreleased) -AMD today announced that Citrix Systems, Inc. has verified the SeaMicro SM10000-XE™ server as Citrix Ready® to run XenServer® 6, a complete managed server virtualization technology that enables companies to cost-effectively consolidate servers and ensure business continuity. The AMD team completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with the industry-leading XenServer® platform, which is widely acknowledged as one of the fastest and most secure virtualization products in the industry.
“As a member of the Citrix Ready program, we are able to offer customers intelligent solutions that combine our SM10000-XE server with Citrix XenServer 6,” said Andrew Feldman, general manager of AMD Data Center Server Solutions group. “This comprehensive offering is just one example of how we are working closely with our technology partners to provide the highest quality experience for our customers.”
The SeaMicro SM10000-XE server is the highest-density, most energy-efficient system available, using half the power, one-third the space and delivering up to 12 times the bandwidth of today’s best-in-class server1. The system delivers 10 gigabits of network bandwidth to each socket for an industry-leading 2.5 gigabits per core. Moreover, the SeaMicro SM10000-XE eliminates the need for expensive switches and load balancers and is plug-and-play, all in a single 10-RU system. The SeaMicro SM10000-XE enables accelerated deployments while providing outstanding performance for security and cloud environments.
The SM10000-XE is built around SeaMicro’s Freedom™ Fabric ASIC—the industry’s first second-generation fabric chip. The Freedom Fabric ASIC contains three key patented technologies:
- SeaMicro’s Input/Output (I/O) Virtualization Technology, which eliminates all but three components from SeaMicro’s motherboard—CPU, DRAM, and the ASIC itself—thereby shrinking the motherboard, helping to reduce power, cost and space.
- SeaMicro’s TIO™ (“Turn It Off”) technology, which enables SeaMicro to further power-optimize the motherboard by consolidating functionality and turning off unneeded CPU and chipset functions. Together, SeaMicro’s I/O Virtualization Technology and TIO technology produce small and power-efficient motherboards.
- The Freedom Supercompute Fabric, which ties these small, power-efficient motherboards together with an industry leading 1.28 terabits-per-second of bandwidth. The Freedom Supercompute Fabric is built of multiple Freedom ASICs working together to create a multi-dimensional torus—delivering a low latency, massive bandwidth fabric with exceptionally low power draw.
