HP has announced that AMD has improved business efficiency and streamlined operations by consolidating its worldwide data centres and standardizing on HP Networking solutions. AMD's innovative computing and graphics technologies run a wide range of computing devices - such as personal computers, game consoles and servers - all of which power internet and business operations spanning cloud computing and virtualization environments throughout the world.
With 18 data centres worldwide, AMD recognized the need to consolidate its infrastructure to optimize resources as well as improve power and cooling efficiency. AMD conducted a comprehensive testing and review process of solutions from multiple networking vendors before choosing HP. The HP 12500 Switch Series and HP 5820 Switch Series will be used in AMD's newest private cloud data centre, where the company makes heavy use of virtualization and cluster technologies.
