Windows ServerR 2008 R2 and WindowsR 7 Benefit from AMD VirtualizationT

AMD today congratulates Microsoft Corp. on the significant achievement of bringing the Windows® 7 and Windows Server® 2008 R2 operating systems to the enterprise.  Windows 7 is the perfect companion for AMD Business Class technology [1] while Windows Server 2008 R2 and the Six-Core AMD Opteron™ processor together provide a stable and reliable, high-performance enterprise computing environment.  The close collaboration between AMD and Microsoft helps enterprise computing customers achieve outstanding, stable performance in real-world applications.


Next generation 12-core AMD Opteron™ processors (currently codenamed “Magny-Cours”) are expected to work seamlessly with Windows Server® 2008 R2 to deliver advanced virtualization performance, high VM density, simplified management, outstanding performance through virtual memory management, and low power consumption.


AMD Virtualization™ (AMD-V™) technology combined with Windows Server® 2008 R2 Hyper-V helps customers to consolidate hardware resources, maintain compatibility with existing software, migrate running Virtual Machines between AMD Opteron processor-based servers and run previous versions of Windows.


AMD-V™ gives employees outstanding flexibility with new Windows 7 features such as Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Virtual PC Mode.  With VDI, users are able to access desktops running on servers in the datacenter from any authorized, networked device, bringing new

 
convenience to remote employees. [2] Virtual PC Mode helps Windows XP legacy applications to run on AMD processor-based Windows 7 systems that have AMD-V technology, helping maintain compatibility. 1, [3]


AMD Business Class Technology offers specially engineered AMD platforms featuring stability and supporting essential manageability and security.  This balance creates an ideal platform for the enhanced visual and productivity features of Windows 7 in multiple display configurations. [4]


“Microsoft and AMD share a commitment to delivering solutions designed to provide a superior computing experience for customers — from the datacenter to the PC,” said Eric Jewett, director, Windows Server and Tools Services Division, Microsoft Corp. “Years of collaboration allow Microsoft and AMD to deliver the technologies that can help accelerate and streamline the enterprise computing experience for customers around the world. We are excited to see the collaboration yielding improved power efficiency, increased multi-threaded scalability and large-scale virtualization.”


“Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 represent an important step in enterprise computing by simplifying both IT management and each employee’s computing experience,” said Ahmed Mahmoud, SVP & CIO, AMD.  “At AMD, we’re already experiencing the benefits from our collaborative relationship with Microsoft on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.  We have almost 750 employees who beta tested Windows 7 and all of these employees will be able to upgrade to the new OS from now through 2010.  Additionally, we plan to completely upgrade the employee installed base during the next two years.”
