AMD Aims to Speed up Cloud Computing Market

16 September 2014

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) has teamed up with Canonical to provide an OpenStack private cloud computing platform based on the SeaMicro SM15000 server.

The AMD/Canonical cloud platform combines the SeaMicro server with Ubuntu LTS 14.04 and OpenStack, which offers a set of tools to build flexible and reliable private cloud servers. AMD is touting its offering as a “out of the box” experience making it possible to deploy a private cloud server in hours instead of days. The device does this by automating configuration tasks, simplifies management and provides a graphical user interface to deploy new services on demand.

Dhiraj Mallick, AMD corporate vice president and general manager of AMD data center server solutions, said in a statement the resources that AMD and Canonical bring “removes the complexity of an OpenStack technology deployment” and the combination platform fills a need in the market “for an OpenStack solution that can be deployed easily without spending a fortune on professional services or hiring teams of people.”

John Zannos, vice president of cloud channels and alliances at Canonical, said in a statement the cloud computing platform “will help drive increased velocity for clients seeking to leverage scale-out cloud technology for next generation workloads.”

The AMD/Canonical cloud platform is available now.
