Amd64 Technology Selected By Daimlerchrysler For Mission-critical Computing Applicati
-AMD Opteron(tm) Processor-based Servers Tabbed for Crash Simulation Applications-
Sunnyvale, Calif. -January 19, 2004- AMD (NYSE:AMD) today announced that DaimlerChrysler AG has implemented its new AMD Opteron(tm) processor-based cluster in the Mercedes-Benz Technology Center (MTC) in Germany. Based on AMD64 technology, the new cluster is the second AMD processor-based cluster installed by DaimlerChrysler in the last three years.
The new cluster will utilize several hundred AMD Opteron processors and will be used in one of the most important testing areas for DaimlerChrysler: the crash-simulation division, where performance, stability and software compatibility are crucial elements.
"The successful results we obtained with our previous AMD processor-based cluster in shortening our product development processes and in running compute-intensive simulations drove us to evaluate the new AMD64 technology platform," said Dr. Johannes Luginsland, manager IT infrastructure for safety and comfort simulation, DaimlerChrysler. "After a deep analysis we came to the conclusion that AMD64 technology is the only solution that can offer us the needed performance for such mission-critical applications like car safety, and a smooth migration to 64-bit technology while retaining software compatibility and protecting our corporate investments."
DaimlerChrysler's new AMD Opteron processor-based cluster will be used to run crash simulations for all upcoming Mercedes-Benz cars and will be one of the largest high-performance Linux clusters in the German automotive industry.
"DaimlerChrysler's decision to employ the AMD Opteron processor in its new cluster is further confirmation that AMD64 technology meets the needs of large enterprises today," said Giuliano Meroni, group vice president, European Sales and Worldwide Distribution, AMD. "The AMD Opteron processor enables DaimlerChrysler to preserve its investments in sophisticated and customized 32-bit software while increasing overall performance and having the ability to migrate to 64-bit applications at their pace as they become available."
The latest win with DaimlerChrysler is one of many of the growing number of enterprise-class customers that are moving to AMD64 technology based servers worldwide for their mission-critical data and applications.
