AMD's SeaMicro SM15000 Server Sets Record for Hyperscale OpenStack Clouds


AMD's SeaMicro SM15000 server set a benchmark record for hyperscale cloud computing with a demonstration that highlights how OpenStack can quickly provision on-demand computing services at scale.

The test provisioned 168,000 virtual machines on 576 physical hosts. The first 75,000 virtual machines were deployed in six hours and thirty minutes. This, according to AMD, is the largest known demonstration of OpenStack scalability ever. AMD achieved the record in collaboration with Canonical using the Ubuntu OpenStack (Icehouse) distribution. MaaS (Metal as a Service), part of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu OpenStack, was used to deliver the bare metal servers, storage and networking.

"This record validates that the SeaMicro SM15000 is well suited for massive OpenStack deployments," said Dhiraj Mallick, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD Data Center Server Solutions. "The combination of Ubuntu OpenStack and the SeaMicro SM15000 server provides the industry's leading solution to build cloud infrastructure that is highly responsive and ideal for on-demand services."

Ubuntu OpenStack 14.04 provides SeaMicro SM15000 integration with support for the system's RESTful application programming interface (API). AMD's SeaMicro SM15000 natively provides RESTful APIs without requiring a separate management application, while accelerating automation and simplifying management by creating standard interfaces to provision compute, storage and networking resources.

In 10 rack units, AMD's SeaMicro SM15000 system links 512 compute cores, 160 gigabits of I/O networking and more than five petabytes of storage with a 1.28 terabyte high-performance supercompute fabric, called Freedom fabric. The SM15000 server eliminates top-of-rack switches, terminal servers, hundreds of cables and thousands of unnecessary components for a more efficient and simple operational environment.

AMD's SeaMicro server product family currently supports the next-generation AMD Opteron ("Piledriver" core) processor, Intel Xeon E3-1260L ("Sandy Bridge"), E3-1265Lv2 ("Ivy Bridge"), E3-1265Lv3 ("Haswell") and Intel Atom N570 processors. The SM15000 also supports the Freedom Fabric Storage products, enabling a single system to connect with more than five petabytes of storage capacity in two racks.
