AMD AMD Launches SeaMicro server with support for Piledriver Opteron and Ivy Bridge Xeon

The SeaMicro SM15000 micro server, with its patented Freedom™ Fabric, enables the disaggregation of data center infrastructure. In combination with the newest generation of processors from AMD and Intel, it provides the highest performance-per-watt, the highest
compute density and highest storage density, as well as the most bandwidth-per-unit compute of any micro server.

Micro servers are dense, hyper-efficient systems in which the compute, storage, and networking are linked by a fabric which enables them to share common infrastructure components. AMD pioneered this technology and has repeatedly been first to market with innovations and optimizations for the rapidly growing data center market. Today's announcements continue this trend.

AMD's new SeaMicro SM15000 server supports the following configurations for a new generation of high performance, efficient large core processor capabilities:

64 AMD Opteron octal core 2.0/2.3/2.8 GHz processors based on the new "Piledriver" core, supporting up to 64 GB of DRAM per processor - 512 cores and more than four terabytes of DRAM per system;
64 Intel Xeon Processor E3-1265Lv2 ("Ivy Bridge" ) 2.5/3.1 GHz quad core, hyper-threaded processors supporting up to 32 GB of DRAM per processor - 256 cores and about two terabytes of DRAM per system;
Over five petabytes of maximum storage with three different Freedom™ Fabric Storage arrays.

With the new AMD Opteron processor, AMD's SeaMicro SM15000 provides 512 cores in a ten rack unit system with more than four terabytes of DRAM and supports up to five petabytes of Freedom Fabric Storage. Since AMD's SeaMicro SM15000 server is ten rack units tall, a one-rack, four-system cluster provides 2,024 cores, 16 terabytes of DRAM, and is capable of supporting 20 petabytes of storage. The new and previously unannounced AMD Opteron processor is a custom designed octal core 2.3 GHz part based on the new "Piledriver" core, and supports up to 64 gigabytes of DRAM per CPU. The SeaMicro SM15000 system with the new AMD Opteron processor sets the high watermark for core density for micro servers.

AMD's SeaMicro SM15000 server is the first micro server to support the latest generation of Intel Xeon processors based on the "Ivy Bridge" microarchitecture. The Intel Xeon Processor E3-1265Lv2 is a 2.5/3.1 GHz quad core processor that supports 32 gigabytes of DRAM. A SeaMicro SM15000 server configured with 64 Intel Xeon Processor E3-1265Lv2 CPUs provides 256 cores and two terabytes of DRAM.

Intel support from amd ?
This is a new strategy...

With the acquisition of SeaMicro, they bought a company that has Intel customers.

Also note that currently the Intel options are Sandy Bridge, and Piledriver Opteron and Ivy Bridge Xeon are coming in October.
