workloads and mainstream infrastructure servers with prices
starting at $99.
This is the first AMD server platform designed from the
beginning to meet the specific requirements of cloud,
hyperscale data center, and SMB users needing flexible and
power-efficient 1 and 2P systems. This platform is also
available for high-end embedded systems such as telecom
servers, storage, and digital signage, through AMD Embedded
Solutions. Systems from Acer Group, Dell, HP, SGI,
Supermicro, ZT Systemsare expected beginning today and in
the coming months.
