Appro's cutting-edge 1U-1142H server based on Quad AMD Opteron processors will double the density of their current 1U servers and provide best-in-class processor performance for 32-bit applications, with easy transition to 64-bit computing
," said Ben Williams, director of the Server/Workstation Business Segment at AMD.
The AMD Opteron processor for servers and workstations is based on AMD64, which extends the x86 instruction set architecture (ISA) to 64-bit computing
for the first time.
AMD's x86-64 architecture extends x86, the industry's most widely supported instruction set, and is designed to enable 64-bit computing
while remaining compatible with existing 32-bit software infrastructure and industry experience.
Based on our experience, MigraTEC 's product provides the potential for IBM customers to employ the power of 64-bit computing
on AIX with less porting effort and greater productivity than conventional techniques like lint, grep or a compiler.
AMD's x86-64 technology is a straightforward approach to 64-bit computing
We think this release represents a fundamental leap in terms of processing power and presents a new option for companies looking to install enterprise-ready Linux 64-bit computing
