Industry-Leading AMD Pensando DPUs Enable Accelerated Data Centers with VMware vSphere 8

AMD Pensando high-performance Distributed Services Card currently deployed at scale across hyperscalers, cloud service providers and enterprises —

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announ­ced that the AMD Pen­san­do Dis­tri­bu­t­ed Ser­vices Card, powe­red by the industry’s most advan­ced data pro­ces­sing unit (DPU)1, will be one of the first DPU solu­ti­ons to sup­port VMware vSphe­re® 8 avail­ab­le from lea­ding ser­ver ven­dors inclu­ding Dell Tech­no­lo­gies, HPE and Lenovo.

As data cen­ter app­li­ca­ti­ons grow in sca­le and sophisti­ca­ti­on, the resul­ting workloads incre­a­se the demand on infra­st­ruc­tu­re ser­vices as well as cru­cial CPU resour­ces. VMware vSphe­re 8 aims to reim­agi­ne IT infra­st­ruc­tu­re as a com­po­sable archi­tec­tu­re with a goal of off­loading infra­st­ruc­tu­re workloads such as net­wor­king, sto­rage, and secu­ri­ty from the CPU by lever­aging the new vSphe­re Dis­tri­bu­t­ed Ser­vices Engi­ne, fre­eing up valu­able CPU cycles to be used for busi­ness func­tions and reve­nue genera­ting applications.

The ful­ly pro­gramm­a­ble AMD Pen­san­do DPU is at the core of this shift toward soft­ware-defi­ned infra­st­ruc­tu­re. The VMware vSphe­re Dis­tri­bu­t­ed Ser­vices Engi­ne and AMD Pen­san­do DPUs can help cus­to­mers redu­ce ope­ra­tio­nal cos­ts by uni­fy­ing workload manage­ment, impro­ving per­for­mance by fre­eing up CPU resour­ces, and pro­vi­ding an added lay­er of secu­ri­ty by iso­la­ting infra­st­ruc­tu­re ser­vices from ser­ver ten­ant workloads. Ear­ly cus­to­mers of vSphe­re Dis­tri­bu­t­ed Ser­vices Engi­ne, acce­le­ra­ted by AMD Pen­san­do DPUs, inclu­de a lea­ding finan­cial ser­vices pro­vi­der, a mul­ti-cloud solu­ti­ons hos­ter and a lea­ding busi­ness app­li­ca­ti­ons com­pa­ny.
