SGI has announced it will support the new AMD Opteron 6000 series platforms across the company's entire design-to-order server portfolio. According to the news release on Market Wire, this includes SGI's CloudRack and Rackable scale-out servers, in addition to SGI InfiniteStorage servers.


The company has extended support for AMD Opteron processors across its entire design-to-order server portfolio.

"Day-one support for the new AMD Opteron 6000 series platforms is offered across SGI's entire design-to-order server portfolio, including CloudRack and Rackable scale-out servers and SGI InfiniteStorage servers. The ICE Cube modular data center also supports AMD Opteron processors for the first time. With up to 12 cores per processor, SGI servers gain dramatic increases in core density--up to 1,824 cores per rack with CloudRack C2 servers and up to 2,208 cores per rack with Rackable half-depth servers. ICE Cube modular data centers can now scale to 41,760 cores per container.

"As part of SGI's increased commitment to AMD processor support, SGI expects to release AMD Opteron processor-based configurations of its Altix ICE high performance computing (HPC) clusters and Octane III personal supercomputer later this year. Similarly, the SGI HPC cluster software stack will also be available on the AMD Opteron platform for the first time."
