LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) September 17, 2008
WHAT: Microsoft and AMD will present performance evaluation results from the robust new virtualization solutions powered by a combination of technologies from AMD and Microsoft Corp. This new deployment model uses AMD Opteron™ processors with AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-V™) technology together with Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 Hyper-V™ to deliver significant efficiencies to enterprises large and small. The performance data presented at VMworld 2008 conference will focus on the scalability companies may experience when operating a 4, 8 or 16 core server running AMD Opteron processors with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V.
WHEN: Thursday, September 18, 2008 at 10 a.m. PT WHERE: VMworld 2008 Solutions Exchange, Las Vegas
The Venetian Hotel, AMD Booth No. 1208
WHY: Advances that AMD has driven into the x86 processor over the past 5 years together with greater choice in virtualization software are starting to open the doors for IT departments, enabling them to run a larger range of workloads on virtualized servers. AMD Opteron™ processors and Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 Hyper-V™, a hypervisor-based virtualization feature of Microsoft Windows Server 2008, allow OEMs, VARs and Solution Providers to offer a valuable server virtualization combination to help increase their competitive edge and market opportunity. AMD-V technology and Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V also help enable businesses to scale according to demands, boosting the efficiency of workloads. The data discussed during this VMworld presentation will underscore the scalability advantages of deploying both solutions in the data center.
WHO BENEFITS: The combined offering is expected to benefit companies of all sizes, including the underserved mid-market, by helping enable reduced cost, increased scalability and superior flexibility for web-based workloads. Mid-market companies are often faced with legacy applications and hardware, integration challenges and cost constraints. The efficiencies and flexibility promised through the combined AMD and Microsoft product offering is expected to particularly benefit this underserved market segment.
