AMD strengthens long standing relationship with VMware


AMD showcases continued enterprise data center momentum with EPYC CPUs and Pensando DPUs.

At the ongoing VMware Explore 2023 Las Vegas, AMD is successfully showcasing its proven performance and growing adoption of AMD EPYC CPUs, AMD Pensando data processing units (DPUs) and adaptive computing products as ideal solutions for the most efficient and innovative virtualized environments. 

“AMD is helping enterprise customers fully realize the benefits of their virtualized data centers with the latest generation EPYC CPUs and Pensando DPUs. Consolidation and modernization enable businesses to increase server utilization and efficiency while delivering impressive performance for critical enterprise workloads. Our ongoing collaboration with VMware enables customers to get more efficient and agile to reach their digital transformation goals,” said Forrest Norrod, executive vice president and general manager, Data Center Solutions Business Group, AMD. 

Along with an ecosystem of trusted partners, AMD is busy bringing enterprise solutions to market that enable greater data center consolidation, helping customers be prepared for future workloads and capabilities of their data center. At the core of this shift is the impressive performance of AMD EPYC CPUs delivering, for instance, a 1.7x performance increase with 2P EPYC 9654 CPUs when compared to 2P Intel Xeon 8490H based servers running VMmark.

Additionally, as data center applications continue to grow in scale and complexity, AMD Pensando DPUs are the ideal solution to help offload infrastructure services from the CPU to free up valuable work cycles. VMware vSphere 8-enabled systems, powered by AMD EPYC CPUs and Pensando DPUs, deliver the performance, efficiency and flexibility IT leaders need to run a broad set of business-critical workloads.

“The move toward heterogeneous computing is driven, in large part, by the increased complexity of modern enterprise applications and distributed environments. VMware vSphere support for the latest generation of AMD EPYC CPUs and Pensando DPUs gives our customers a comprehensive enterprise platform that helps to deliver improved infrastructure performance, security and manageability,” said Krish Prasad, Senior Vice President and GM, cloud infrastructure business group, VMware.

AMD data center products, along with the latest VMware-based systems, help IT leaders tailor and drastically improve the management and security of their enterprise applications allowing them to deliver on their organization’s most demanding digital transformation goals.
