The demo involved web hosting. AMD showed the entire LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack running on top of a Seattle-powered development server. You probably can't read the little spec sheet in the picture above, so here's what it says:
AMD Opteron A1100 series development platform
AMD Opteron A1100 Series processor 4 registered DIMM slots for up to 128GB of DDR3 DRAM PCI Express connectors configurable as single x8 or dual x4 ports 8 Serial ATA connectors Compatibility with standard power supplies Linux environment based on Fedora
The demo kicked off with this system spitting out web pages with information about the various software installed: Apache 2.4.6, MySQL 5.5.35, and PHP 5.4.16. The operating system was identified as "Red Hat Server for ARM 2.0 (development preview)," although I don't see that release referenced on the Red Hat website.
