AMD today welcomed three new participants - Supermicro, Tyan and Uniwide - to its Validated Server Program (VSP), broadening the program's reach in North America and Europe and into new geographical regions. AMD's VSP is designed to connect solution providers with VSP participants to obtain qualified, reliable, stable and well-supported server solutions based on single- and Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors with the industry's best performance-per-watt. The three new participants are expected to introduce new platforms to be sold under the VSP banner later this quarter in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America.
The VSP program was launched in June 2003, connecting solution providers with servers from Newisys, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sanmina-SCI. Newisys is an original design manufacturer providing server and storage systems for leading original equipment manufacturers and system builders.
VSP systems are thoroughly tested for quality, compatibility, longevity and stability and are backed by global manufacturers who provide world-class service and support.
Joining the program are Supermicro Computer, a market leader in x86 server and motherboard solutions for the distribution channel; Tyan Computer Corporation, a well-renowned designer and manufacturer of advanced x86 and x86-64 platform and system technology for OEMs, VARs and system builders worldwide; and Uniwide Technologies, a leader in AMD Opteron processor-based server and workstation bare-bones platforms.
Product availability information will be communicated when the specific new platforms are announced beginning later this quarter.
