Dell Virtualization Servers Feature Quad-Core AMD Opteron Processors

Sunnyvale, Calif. - AMD reports that one of the industry's most scalable virtualization servers is now available from Dell and based on the Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor.

For enterprise customers interested in consolidating server infrastructure, two new virtualization servers from Dell use Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors, including the Dell PowerEdge R905 which set a new standard in VMmark performance testing with 60 virtual machines. The new Dell servers take advantage of AMD Direct Connect Architecture to reduce bottlenecks, minimize latency, and increase the performance of virtualized applications to maximize the benefits of virtualization.


The Dell PowerEdge R805 and R905 servers are designed to run with virtualization software from leading ISVs, including VMware and Citrix XenServer. The result is a virtualization solution that can enable customers to consolidate their IT infrastructure, increasing resource utilization while helping decrease power, cooling, and space costs.
