X-bit labs: What solution is the current top-selling Appro product?
Our top selling solution is the 3U Appro XtremeServer. The Appro 3U XtremeServer supports up to 4 AMD Opteron™ processors. The 128GB memory footprint enables most applications to run faster or support more users than other systems. The 3U XtremeServer combines AMD Dual-Core Opteron™ processor technology, excellent management and outstanding uptime features in an enterprise-class system ideal for large data center deployments. This server is the best performing x86 4-processor server in the industry. Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ processors enable a huge boost in performance. Depending on the application and environment, customers can expect to see anywhere from 15 to 65% performance improvement from single-core processors.
Appro XtremeServers take advantage of AMD Opteron technology, for example, AMD PowerNow! technology with Optimized Power Management (OPM) which provides performance-on-demand by dynamically adjusting performance based on CPU utilization – helping systems to run at optimum performance and power levels, reducing electricity costs while maximizing IT budget dollars. Appro XtremeServers are designed to provide that versatility and performance for all business sizes - from a multi-tiered web environment and High Performance Computing to a single-function application.
