AMD’s SeaMicro SM15000 Server Achieves Certification for Rackspace Private Cloud

AMD today announced that its SeaMicro SM15000آ™ server is certified for the Rackspaceآ® Private Cloud. "Nova in a Box" and "Swift in a Rack" are respectively the most efficient compute and highest storage capacity solutions validated for OpenStackآ®. The product certification for mass compute and object storage ensures that enterprise deployments of Rackspace Private Cloud on AMD’s SeaMicro SM15000 servers are a proven and rigorously tested solution, enabling peace of mind for enterprises around the world. As a part of The Rackspace Open Cloudآ™ platform, the company launched the Rackspace Private Cloud Software in August 2012 with thousands of organizations in over 125 countries spanning all continents downloading the product.

The Rackspace Private Cloud simplifies the management of large pools of compute, storage and networking resources using OpenStack. As cloud-based services grow, data centers must scale their services to new and ever-growing requirements. Reference architectures and test criteria for OpenStack solutions help to ensure consistent performance, supportability and compatibility. With the certification for mass compute and object storage, AMD is at the forefront of providing a thoroughly tested private cloud solution using OpenStack that is simple for enterprises to deploy.
