Appro servers and cluster solutions based on the new Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor (previously codenamed "Barcelona") are designed to provide high performance, reliability, power efficiency, memory scalability, high bandwidth and low memory latency, delivering a validated optimized Appro solution to meet the demands of multi-core processing for high-performance computing applications.
"Appro XtremeServers and workstations powered by AMD Opteron processors represent a value proposition based on improved performance and memory availability for traditional high-performance computing (HPC) and commercial applications, while adding reliability and flexibility for our end-users with peak performance and outstanding value," said John Lee, VP of Advanced Technology Solutions Group at Appro. "Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors improve our server's value proposition through an enhanced cache structure designed to boost performance and increase data and efficiency handling, thereby reducing the latency of accessing main memory, especially for compute-intensive multi-threaded applications. In addition, the architecture drastically improves the memory and I/O latency for HPC customers that are using 64 bit applications, and it helps 32 bit applications run faster as well. In the end, the importance of AMD's native multi-core architecture is vital for computational-intensive business productivity."
"Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors are a perfect fit for companies like
Appro who offer server-cluster solutions for the high-performance computing
and enterprise markets," said Patrick Patla, Director of Product
Management, Server/Workstation Division, AMD (
