This article reports on the decision of Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) to team with Panasas Inc. of Fremont, California, to help eliminate both compute and storage performance bottlenecks from Linux clusters as of June 1, 2005. Panasas has announced ongoing support of the AMD64 platform and its innovative new Dual-Core AMD Opteron(TM) processors. AMD Opteron processor-powered Linux clusters, teamed with the Panasas ActiveScale Storage Cluster(TM), are helping technical computing environments eliminate both compute and storage performance bottlenecks from Linux clusters. The resulting performance improvements increase the speed with which customers achieve their business results. Panasas and AMD have each revolutionized different elements of Linux clusters to help usher this high-performance computing platform into the mainstream. AMD64 dual-core technology provides industry-leading performance and is a natural extension of the AMD Opteron processor's Direct Connect Architecture, which directly connects CPU, memory, and I/O resources. The Panasas ActiveScale Storage Cluster combines a parallel file system, with an object-based architecture, to improve data throughput between the storage and compute resources of a Linux cluster.
