AMD teams with Xyratex on Big Data
Xyratex, a provider of data storage technology, has announced that Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has chosen it as a strategic supplier.
AMD selected the Xyratex OneStor Modular Enclosure as one of the building blocks for its Big Data and storage intensive solutions, and optimised the SeaMicro SM15000 server to provide more than five petabytes of storage capacity in two racks for Big Data applications such as Hadoop and Object Storage.
The combination of Xyratex and AMD products delivers an ultra-dense, high-performance platform that eliminates excess hardware costs and cabling while simplifying installation and minimising footprint requirements.
'SeaMicro SM15000 server with the Freedom Fabric Storage solution is known in the market for its superior computing efficiency and storage density, as well as the lowest total cost of ownership,' said Dhiraj Mallick, corporate vice president and general manager of data center server solutions at AMD.
'With the combination of the SM15000 and the Xyratex OneStor data storage product, we have a winning solution that is unmatched in storage density and capacity.'
The OneStor family of data storage systems from Xyratex is aimed at offering a series of storage building blocks end users can deploy in a variety of ways to accommodate their most demanding storage requirements.
These storage solutions consolidate server storage requirements into a single storage computing platform, in an effort to eliminate additional hardware costs, minimise footprint requirements and simplify cabling and installation – enabling partners to deliver more fully integrated, powerful and intelligent storage solutions.
