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 certification process with ATI ensures that our customers can depend on the increased functionality of 64-bit computing
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.
InfoWorld named Fred Weber, AMD CTO, to its list of Innovators of 2005 for innovations to the AMD roadmap that comprehended the need for 64-bit computing
and dual-core processors back in 1999.
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.
AMD64 technology is the gold standard for 64-bit computing
1 release, we are able to transition to 64-bit computing
with the confidence that these Linux workloads will meet the mission-critical standards of our datacenter.
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.
With AMD, Intel and Microsoft driving heavily to move the market away from 32-bit to 64-bit computing
the move is upon us whether we like it or not," said Rob Enderle, principal analyst for the Enderle Group.
AMD's x86-64 technology is a straightforward approach to 64-bit computing
Moreover, AMD64 technology protects companies' software investments by enabling a seamless migration from 32- to 64-bit computing
as business needs evolve.
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
