New Dell Servers with Quad-Core Opteron Processors Available

One of the industry's most scalable virtualization servers is now available from Dell and based on the Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor, AMD has announced. Enterprise customers interested in consolidating server infrastructure may turn to two new virtualization servers from Dell utilizing Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors, including the Dell PowerEdge R905 which set a new standard in VMmark performance testing with 60 virtual machines. The new Dell servers take advantage of AMD Direct Connect Architecture to reduce bottlenecks, minimize latency and increase the performance of virtualized applications to maximize the benefits of virtualization.

The Dell PowerEdge R805 and R905 servers are designed to run with virtualization software from leading ISVs, including VMware and Citrix XenServer. The result is a virtualization solution that can enable customers to consolidate their IT infrastructure, increasing resource utilization while helping decrease power, cooling, and space costs.

AMD has been evolving the x86 architecture for virtualization since the release of the AMD Opteron processor five years ago. AMD Virtualization technology with Rapid Virtualization Indexing helps enable customers running Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors to significantly improve their performance due to the system's ability to more easily manage memory and decrease the time "switching" between virtual machines.
