AMD and VMware Deliver Trusted Virtualization Solutions

VMware vSphere 4 is a robust virtualization environment optimized to support the AMD Opteron 6000 series platform to drive more demanding, business critical workloads.

A highly memory-intensive workload, virtualization is currently one of the most sweeping and pervasive trends in IT. By the end of 2010, industry analysts IDC and Gartner predict there will be greater penetration of virtual machines among companies with 100 to 999 employees than among Global 500 enterprises.

AMD along with VMware, one of the industry’s leading desktop and datacenter virtualization provider, offer the trusted solutions to enable this penetration and deliver significant virtualization advances needed today and the flexibility to grow with your company tomorrow.

Virtualization Case Study: North Shore Medical Center

"Better technology absolutely makes for better medicine." Mark Hulse, CIO, NSMC

NSMC reduces power consumption and cooling costs while improving patient support by implementing a virtualization strategy utilizing AMD Opteron™ processor-based HP servers. This allowed NSMC to consolidate 150 servers to 94 servers, with 86 of them running virtualized. NSMC then extended the solution to their doctors and staff by launching cutting edge VDI technology with AMD Sempron™ processor-based thin Clients.
