HPE and AMD: A well-served partnership that bolsters the value of IT

The AMD’s EPYC event in San Francisco, was a gathering that reinforced the strong bond between HPE and AMD . Sharing the stage with AMD CEO Lisa Su, reminded audience members of the genesis of the alliance on the EPYC project – which is just three years old – to create an open server ecosystem that would accelerate innovation to transform our industry.

And that event was the perfect time to announce the latest advancement in our partnership – that HPE is delivering record-breaking performance for database virtualization (321 percent increase over the previous record) and power efficiency (28 percent increase) in the HPE ProLiant DL385 and DL325 Gen10 servers, which of course are based on the AMD EPYC 7002 Series Processor. Plus, our servers are reducing maintenance and operational costs, providing faster uptime and workflow, and accelerating performance for data-intensive workloads.

When AMD EPYC processors was introduced into our HPE ProLiant server family in 2017, they knew they would be offering customers some powerful options to efficiently address a wide range of emerging technology needs.

Like speed! To date, AMD and HPE have set 37 world records for speed-based performance that is focused on driving critical workloads, quickly and efficiently. And with 2/3 of enterprise workloads virtualized today, achieving higher virtualization performance metrics means workloads are being delivered on time, and with less costs. This optimization of server resources is facilitated by HPE’s Workload Matching technology and the world’s most power-efficient 2-processor server.

Of course, these records aren’t relevant without the proper safeguards to cyberattacks. And HPE ProLiant servers are redefining the definition of “security,” as AMD and HPE are the only provider that offers industry-standard servers with leading security protection already built-in – our immutable silicon root of trust — allowing them to authenticate the software running at boot time and as important provide a strong foundation to protect against an ever growing array of attacks.  And through their close partnership with AMD, they have linked leadership silicon root of trust capabilities to the very strong security capability built into EPYC CPU which enables Secure Encrypted Memory and Secure Encrypted Virtualization.
