AMD’s SeaMicro SM15000 Achieves CDH4 Certification

By - Source: AMD | B 9 comments

The company's Sea Micro SM15000 severs are the first fabric-based computing servers to receive the certification from Cloudera.

AMD's SeaMicro SM15000 range of servers is now certified for Cloudera's distribution, including Apache Hadoop Version 4 (CHD4). It has become the first fabric-based computing server to receive a certification for the industry's most widely deployed distribution of Apache Hadoop. This, combined with Sea Micro's status as the industry's most power efficient and storage dense solution, provides everything required for CDH4 and enables organizations to deploy CDH4 quickly at a minimal cost.

The SM15000 links 512 compute cores, 160 gigabits of I/O networking using the 1.28 terabyte high-performance SeaMicro Freedom Fabric, and more than five petabytes of Freedom Fabric Storage, which eliminates top-of-rack switches, terminal servers, and other components for more efficient operation. AMD's Freedom Fabric technology provides massive bandwidth, scalable computing and storage, and notably allows petabytes of storage to be added or upgraded while the system is in use.

“The CDH4 certification assures our customers that the SM15000 completed and passed strict testing and performance requirements," said Tim Stevens, VP of Business and Corporate Development at Cloudera. "Leveraging the deep domain expertise and expanding knowledge base offered by Cloudera and the greater Cloudera Connect partner ecosystem, AMD can enable its customers to bypass the complexity associated with deploying and managing Hadoop and put their data to immediate use. We’re committed to helping enterprises achieve the most from their big data initiatives, and we’re pleased that AMD has completed certification of the SM15000 on CDH4."

AMD's SeaMicro SM15000 is currently available in the following configurations
  • SM15000-OP: 64 Octal Core Servers with AMD Opteron processors
  • SM15000-XN: 64 Quad Core Servers with Intel Xeon E3-1265Lv2 processors
  • SM15000-XE: 64 Quad Core Servers with Intel Xeon E3-1260L processors
  • SM15000-64: 256 Dual Core Servers with Intel Atom N570 processors

    I was thinking the same thing :) 

    But with AMD also making video cards(re badged for other things) that can do open CL, you can still get an "AMD" system

    AMD owns SeaMicro and in the interest of not getting ignored by the enterprise community, they still sell servers with Intel CPUs as well as servers with AMD CPUs instead of exclusively using AMD CPUs because a lot of customers may prefer Intel. AMD isn't going to shut Intel out of that because AMD makes more money by selling the Intel servers than they would if they didn't sell them.

    Yeah, but imagine Nvidia buying a company and still letting them sell AMD cards? It would never happen. It is strange at first sight.

    Then it's a good thing that AMD isn't Nvidia if that was the situation ;)

    I could get into some serious trouble with that kind of power. Imagine cracking RAR files & such.

    If you can edit out the offending website in your quote it would be good :) 
    7368 for one of those servers would be great :)
