20,  2012  —  AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced the latest solution as part of its ongoing Web/Cloud initiative with the launch of the new AMD Opteron 3200 Series processor . Dedicated Web hosting customers seeking enterprise-class reliability have a new choice that delivers:

  • Great value with up to 38% better price performance 1 and up to 19% less power per core 2 than the competition;
  • ECC memory and server reliability features at a low price-point;
  • Fast hardware payback - In as few as 7 months hosting fees can cover hardware costs - up to 14% quicker than with the competition 3 ;
  • Efficient economics for the Cloud with twice the core density per rack 4 .

In today's economic environment, dedicated hosting providers need their data centers to become profit centers faster than ever, said Patrick Patla, corporate vice president and general manager, Commercial Business, AMD. With the new AMD Opteron 3000 Series platform, Web and Cloud customers no longer have to compromise with desktop-class platforms in order to hit certain price points. Now they have all the benefits of a true server-class product at desktop-class price points. This helps rapidly-growing hosting customers achieve fast payback in their incredibly dense, power-efficient environments.

Since the launch of its new core server architecture , and AMD Opteron 4200 and 6200 Series processors last November, AMD unveiled a disruptive server strategy and intentions to leverage its leading graphics IP while driving down the power in future SoC offerings. As part of accelerating this, AMD recently announced it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Cloud pioneer SeaMicro.

Today AMD has delivered on its promise of a low-power, single-socket solution that brings server functionality with desktop economics. The AMD Opteron 3000 Series platform is targeted to the dense, power efficient 1P Web hosting/Web server market. Available in either 4- or 8-core CPUs, the AMD Opteron 3200 Series processor is shipping today in platforms from MSI, Tyan, Fujitsu and Dell. Based on the Bulldozer core, the AMD Opteron 3000 Series platform leverages Socket AM3+ and provides customers with the cost savings associated with a desktop-like infrastructure, yet still offers server-class reliability, enterprise-class silicon validation/testing, security features and server OS certification.

AMD is a great partner, and we're excited about the new AMD Opteron 3200 Series CPU. It allows us to create a custom design for our DCS customers, and deliver a compelling combination of performance and energy efficiency, says Dell Data Center Solutions' Steve Cumings. As the leader in the Density-Optimized market segment, we require focused partner technology within industry standards and this is a good fit for our customers.

  3. In as few as 7 months - up 14% quicker than with the competition - hosting fees can cover your server hardware costs. Calculation based on the time it takes for monthly hosting fees of $89.99 to sum up to the cost of an AMD Opteron 3200 Series processor-based server (est. $573) vs. an Intel Xeon E3-12xxL processor-based server (est. $643). It does account for software, deployment, management, and power costs. Not accounting for licensing, deployment, management, or power costs, it takes seven months of hosting revenue to pay back the cost of an AMD Opteron processor Model 3250-based server and eight months of hosting revenue to pay back the cost of an Intel Xeon processor Model E3-1250L-based server. This assumes receiving $89.99 dedicated hosting monthly fee, which is in between the pricing for the Server 4 and Server 4i Standard Application L packages as of 1/9/12 at www.1and1.com . AMD Opteron 3250 based server costs $573 (est.) and an Intel Xeon E3-1220L based server costs $643 (est.). The processor and motherboard make up the cost differences between an AMD Opteron 3200 Series based server and an Intel Xeon E3-120xL Series based server. The costs for chassis, drive, and memory are expected to be the same in a like-for-like configuration.
