Provider of computing technologies AMD (NYSE: AMD) announced on Monday the deployment by Verizon of its SM15000 servers for its new global cloud platform and cloud-based object storage service, public beta of which was recently announced.
Financial details of this deployment were not available.
According to AMD, its SeaMicro SM15000 server links hundreds of cores together in a single system using a fraction of the power and space of traditional servers. To enable Verizon's next generation solution, Verizon and AMD co-developed additional hardware and software technology on the SM15000 server that provides unprecedented performance and best-in-class reliability backed by enterprise-level service level agreements (SLAs).
Reportedly, this combination of the technologies co-developed by AMD and Verizon ushers in a new era of enterprise-class cloud services by enabling a higher level of control over security and performance SLAs. With this technology underpinning the new Verizon Cloud Compute and Verizon Cloud Storage, enterprise customers can now, for the first time, confidently deploy mission-critical systems in the public cloud, the companies said.
This public beta for Verizon Cloud is expected to launch in the fourth quarter.
