AMD acquires SeaMicro

Share this on social media:

AMD has signed a definitive agreement to acquire SeaMicro, a provider of energy-efficient, high-bandwidth microservers, for approximately $334 million, of which approximately $281 million will be paid in cash.

Through the acquisition of SeaMicro, AMD will be accelerating its strategy to deliver disruptive server technology to its OEM customers serving cloud-centric data centres. AMD’s server technology combined with SeaMicro technology provides a range of processor choices and platforms that can help significantly reduce data centre complexity, cost and energy consumption while improving performance. SeaMicro’s supercompute fabric, which connects thousands of processor cores, memory, storage and input/output traffic, supports multiple processor instruction sets. AMD plans to offer the first AMD Opteron processor-based solutions that combine both companies’ technology in the second half of 2012.
