Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) has uncloaked the AMD Ready Solutions for servers. This is a result of a collaboration of server platform makers to provide a broad portfolio of the upcoming AMD Opteron 6200 Series processor-based motherboards.

Since the forthcoming AMD Opteron processors will drop into the existing socket infrastructure, motherboard manufacturers such as ASUS, Supermicro and TYAN are bringing fully validated and rigorously tested platforms to market even more quickly, they claimed. These platforms tackle market demands and customer requirements for various server workloads including high-performance computing (HPC), cloud computing, virtualization, enterprise and database applications and Web/email servers.

"With AMD Ready Solutions for servers, our customers can find complete and verified server platforms in the channel the day of launch," said Paul Struhsaker, corporate VP and GM, commercial business at AMD. Among the key distributors who are expected to offer AMD Ready Solutions platforms on day of launch are ASI, Avnet, Ingram Micro, Supercom and SYNNEX.
