AMD Creates Ready-to-Deploy OpenStack Private Cloud in a Box Based on the SeaMicro SM15000 Server

 Packa짯ged Bund짯le with Cano짯ni짯cal Ubun짯tu Deli짯vers Industry셲 Easie짯st Way to Crea짯te an Enter짯pri짯se Open짯Stack Pri짯va짯te Cloud

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. Sept. 16, 2014 AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announ짯ced a new col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on with Cano짯ni짯cal짰 that pro짯vi짯des one of the industry셲 easie짯st ways to deploy an Open짯Stack짰 pri짯va짯te cloud.  The solu짯ti짯on fea짯tures the Sea짯Mi짯cro SM15000꽓 ser짯ver, Ubun짯tu짰 LTS 14.04 and Open짯Stack, which includes a set of powerful tools to build one of the most fle짯xi짯ble and relia짯ble pri짯va짯te clouds.  The AMD and Cano짯ni짯cal col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on over짯co짯mes the com짯ple짯xi짯ty of deploy짯ing Open짯Stack tech짯no짯lo짯gy and pro짯vi짯des an out of the box expe짯ri짯ence making it pos짯si짯ble to deploy a pri짯va짯te cloud in hours com짯pared to days.  The joint solu짯ti짯on auto짯ma짯tes com짯plex con짯fi짯gu짯ra짯ti짯on tasks, sim짯pli짯fies manage짯ment, and pro짯vi짯des a gra짯phi짯cal user inter짯face to dyna짯mi짯cal짯ly deploy new ser짯vices on demand.

AMD and Cano짯ni짯cal have dedi짯ca짯ted a tre짯men짯dous amount of engi짯nee짯ring resour짯ces to ensu짯re an inte짯gra짯ted solu짯ti짯on that remo짯ves the com짯ple짯xi짯ty of an Open짯Stack tech짯no짯lo짯gy deploy짯ment, said Dhi짯raj Mallick, cor짯po짯ra짯te vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, AMD data cen짯ter ser짯ver solu짯ti짯ons.  쏷he SM15000 ser짯ver, Ubun짯tu LTS 14.04 and Open짯Stack is an ama짯zing solu짯ti짯on fil짯ling a need in the indus짯try for an Open짯Stack solu짯ti짯on that can be deploy짯ed easi짯ly wit짯hout spen짯ding a for짯tu짯ne on pro짯fes짯sio짯nal ser짯vices or hiring teams of people.

The Sea짯Mi짯cro SM15000 ser짯ver and Ubun짯tu LTS 14.04 and Open짯Stack solu짯ti짯on is one the most sca짯lable solu짯ti짯ons in the indus짯try, as demons짯tra짯ted in set짯ting the indus짯try bench짯mark record for hypers짯ca짯le cloud com짯pu짯ting.  The record of 168,000 vir짯tu짯al machi짯nes was achie짯ved using MAAS (Metal as a Ser짯vice) and Juju, both part of Ubun짯tu LTS 14.04 and Open짯Stack.  MAAS was used to deli짯ver the bare metal ser짯vers, sto짯rage and net짯wor짯king, and Juju was used for deploy짯ment.  The solu짯ti짯on is available today and is the most sca짯lable, auto짯ma짯ted appli짯ca짯ti짯on for deploy짯ing Ubun짯tu LTS 14.04 and Open짯Stack in hypers짯ca짯le environments.

Cano짯ni짯cal has deve짯lo짯ped the most sophisti짯ca짯ted set of tools in the indus짯try to remo짯ve the com짯ple짯xi짯ty of an enter짯pri짯se gra짯de Open짯Stack deploy짯ment, said John Zan짯nos, vice pre짯si짯dent of cloud chan짯nels and alli짯ances at Cano짯ni짯cal.  쏷he AMD-Cano짯ni짯cal Open짯Stack solu짯ti짯on bund짯le will help dri짯ve increased velo짯ci짯ty for cli짯ents see짯king to levera짯ge sca짯le-out cloud tech짯no짯lo짯gy for next gene짯ra짯ti짯on workloads.

AMD셲 Sea짯Mi짯cro SM15000 Server

AMD셲 Sea짯Mi짯cro SM15000 sys짯tem is one of the hig짯hest-den짯si짯ty, most ener짯gy-effi짯ci짯ent ser짯vers in the mar짯ket. In 10 rack units, it links 512 CPU cores, 160 giga짯bits of I/O net짯wor짯king, more than five peta짯bytes of sto짯rage with a 1.28 tera짯byte high-per짯for짯mance super짯com짯pu짯te fabric, cal짯led Free짯dom꽓 fabric. The SM15000 ser짯ver eli짯mi짯na짯tes top-of-rack swit짯ches, ter짯mi짯nal ser짯vers, hundreds of cables and thou짯sands of unneces짯sa짯ry com짯pon짯ents for a more effi짯ci짯ent and simp짯le ope짯ra짯tio짯nal environment.

AMD셲 Sea짯Mi짯cro ser짯ver pro짯duct fami짯ly curr짯ent짯ly sup짯ports the next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on AMD Opte짯ron꽓 (쏱iledri짯ver core) pro짯ces짯sor, Intel짰 Xeon짰 E3-1265L짯v2 (쏧vy Bridge), E3-1265L짯v3  (쏦as짯well) pro짯ces짯sors. The Sea짯Mi짯cro SM15000 ser짯ver also sup짯ports the Free짯dom Fabric Sto짯rage pro짯ducts, enab짯ling a sin짯gle sys짯tem to con짯nect with more than five peta짯bytes of sto짯rage capa짯ci짯ty in two racks. This approach deli짯vers the bene짯fits of expen짯si짯ve and com짯plex solu짯ti짯ons such as net짯work atta짯ched sto짯rage (NAS) and sto짯rage area net짯wor짯king (SAN) with the sim짯pli짯ci짯ty and low cost of direct atta짯ched storage.
