Boston IT Solutions (India) Private Limited announced a variety of new server, workstation and GPU compute solutions powered by the AMD Opteron 6000 Series platform and the AMD Opteron 6100 processors, which have been announced worldwide today.

Boston has been heavily involved in the sale and promotion of AMD platforms for some time now; with todays launch of the world's first 8-core and 12-core x86 processors, the AMD Opteron 6100 series processors offer unrivaled performance levels, power savings and a strong value proposition. Bostons range of solutions are set to raise the bar for customer expectations over previous generation technologies. The increase in core count provides further headroom for intensive enterprise class and research applications in addition to providing high memory bandwidth for large data sets.

In addition to the obvious benefits of using the latest 12- and 8-core AMD Opteron 6100 processors, exciting new features have been made available such as being able to use the same processors across single/dual/quad socket servers. This provides excellent flexibility to move processors between platforms to suit client needs as business or projects expand over time says Manoj Nayee, Managing Director.

The introduction of quad channel DDR3 sees a welcome introduction with greatly increased support for further system memory and up to 66% faster memory performance with large data sets. AMD Hypertransport technology has also been improved significantly with up to 4x HT3 (HT 3.0) links now available which can provide up to 25.6GB/s @ 6.4GT/s per link; this provides nearly twice the I/O bandwidth with an integrated CPU/chipset platform.

The launch of our new AMD Opteron 6000 series based 2U Twin Squared platforms has upped the ante within the industry once again with full support for up to a staggering 96 AMD Opteron 6000 series processor cores made available from a single 2U enclosure that contains 4 hot swappable servers. Designed to offer industry leading performance per watt this highly innovative platform can be scaled upwards to provide up to a phenomenal 2016 AMD Opteron cores into an industry standard 42U rack! says Wally Liaw, Vice President of international sales at Supermicro.
