AMD demonstrates live migration virtualization on three Opterons

Posted on Tuesday, March 24 2009 @ 21:04:51 CET by

AMD demonstrated live migration between three AMD Opteron processor generations today, there was a 65nm quad-core Barcelona, 45nm quad-core Shanghai and 45nm six-core Istanbul system. The demo showed a running virtual machine being migrated from one physical machine to another.
Continuing its momentum and leadership in virtualization technology, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE: AMD) today released the first video and images demonstrating live migration across three generations of AMD processors on VMware ESX 3.5, including the Six-Core AMD Opteron™ processor code-named “Istanbul.” Live Migration of virtual machines across physical servers is key to providing superior flexibility for managing today’s data centers. Additionally, AMD is highlighting its continued, cooperative development efforts with Microsoft as evidenced in Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V™, which is available today as a beta and adds support for AMD-V™ technology with Rapid Virtualization Indexing. The new 45nm Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor provides scalable performance for both Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 and has received support from all four global OEMs.

“The AMD ecosystem of hardware and software partners like Microsoft, Sun and VMware illustrates a strong confidence in the advanced virtualization capabilities AMD-V offers,” said Margaret Lewis, director, Commercial Solutions, AMD. “Enabled in part by RVI, Live Migration across our 65-nm and 45-nm Quad-Core and upcoming Six-Core AMD Opteron processors provides further evidence of the flexibility of AMD-V technology for data center customers upgrading their systems.”

Last week Sun Microsystems posted a new 8P, 32-core world-record result on the VMmark benchmark, measuring the performance and scalability of applications running in virtualized environments based on VMware products. This top VMmark score was achieved on a Sun Fire™ X4600 M2 server powered by Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors. More information on leading VMmark scores for 2P, 4P and 8P AMD Opteron processor-based systems can be found at http://links.amd.com/a3zb.
