AMD EPYC™ SERVER PROCESSORS NOW AVAILABLE
In a time where enterprise solutions require an increased demand for speed, performance, power and security, QuadraNet is proud to be offering AMD EPYC™ Server Processors that deliver the performance to power the next wave of HPC advances through their innovative approach to security.
QuadraNet CTO, Andrew Moore participated in an “Ask the Expert” Q & A session about the dynamic AMD EPYC™ server processors.
“At QuadraNet, our priority is always to provide our customers with high quality dedicated servers, so making the decision to add the AMD EPYC™ to our lineup was easy”.
– says QuadraNet CTO, Andrew Moore.
Q: Security is important when it comes to data, can you tell us about how AMD EPYC™ provides security to its users?
A: With the evolving and growing threats to cybersecurity, it is imperative to have trusted security. We asked Andrew about the security AMD provides:
“2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ Processors help customers guard their data, which is their most important asset. Using AMD Secure Encrypted Virtualization with no application changes required, the New 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors, cryptographically isolate and secure over 500 virtual machines per server.”
Q: At QuadraNet, it is important that we offer high performing products to our server. What makes the performance of the AMD EPYC™ special?
A: Andrew referred us to the AMD Data Sheet, which explains:
“WITH UP TO 64 HIGH PERFORMANCE CORES PER SOC, 2nd Gen AMD EPYC Processors deliver world-record2 , best-in-class performance up to a 2×3 generational performance increase that outpaces Intel Xeon Platinum by up to 102%4.”
Q: What can you tell us about the efficiency of AMD EPYC™ processors?
A: Andrew explained just how efficient AMD EPYC™ processors are. “Efficiency is critical and AMD Infinity Architecture delivers! AMD EPYC™ 7002 is the first x86-architecture server processor based on 7nm process technology, a hybrid, multi-die architecture, PCIe® Gen4 I/O, and an embedded security architecture.”
Q: What would you say are the main benefits of AMD EPYC™ processors?
A: In addition to the powerful performance, security and efficiency, users also have flexibility and choice that provide additional choices to help you optimize both cost and performance for your workloads; better economics because AMD EPYC processors deliver up to 10% lower cost compute and memory comparatively; workload optimization allowing the ability to match compute resources to workload needs, optimizing the cost; seamless workload migrations that allow you to easily migrate applications to the new AMD-based variants with little to no modification; and, another key benefit is that you can run enterprise applications on AMD EPYC processors.
Q: Who else is using the AMD EPYC™ processors?
A: We dug a little deeper to find out who was already using , who have now become Intel rivals and discovered that the conglomerate, Google, and popular social media platform, Twitter, are among the companies using them. That’s impressive and speaks to the high quality of these processors.
Q: Any closing thoughts?
A: Looking forward, QuadraNet will continue to prioritize high-quality products and services to our clients while providing measurable qualitative metrics that ensure the improvement of our client’s infrastructure. We are excited to be offering this dynamic new product, the AMD EPYC™ processors which support our mission of enabling and empowering our clients.
