The newest AMD EPYC™-based HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 server to deliver two-socket performance1 to help customers unlock more efficiency and TCO 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) today announced that the new Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) (NYSE:HPE) ProLiant DL325 Gen10 server will be powered by the AMD EPYC™ 7000 series processor.

The HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 server incorporates up to 32 “Zen” processor cores from AMD EPYC alongside two terabytes of memory and 40 terabytes of NVMe storage in a 1U chassis. With its higher core count2 and memory bandwidth3 per processor than the competition, along with 40 PCIe lanes dedicated up to 10 NVMe drives, it is ideal for tackling dense virtualization, hosting and software-defined storage applications, reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) when compared to traditional two-socket systems. The HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 delivers up to a 27 percent lower cost per virtual machine (VM) than the leading dual-processor competitor for virtualization4.

With the addition of the HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10, HPE increases choice for customers with multiple AMD based platforms now available, from the HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10 and HP Moonshot solutions to the AMD EPYC-based two-socket HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 and one-socket HPE Cloudline CL3150 Gen10. Mirroring the workload advantages and affordability of the HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10, the more versatile AMD EPYC-based HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 demonstrates continued leadership in cost savings, with more than 28 percent TCO savings in virtualized environments compared to Intel’s Xeon SP family5. In addition, the HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 enables up to three double wide or five single wide GPUs, including the Radeon Instinct MI25 Accelerator for machine learning and workload acceleration.

This is EPYC: Delivering No Compromise Single-Socket Solutions
The AMD EPYC 7000 series processors are built with more I/O6, more memory bandwidth7 and more core density8 to address performance and functionality constraints typically associated with a one-socket solution. With AMD EPYC, server partners can build single-socket platforms that address more than 50 percent of the market traditionally serviced by two-socket systems, without compromising on manageability, serviceability, and reliability needed by the most demanding cloud and enterprise customers9. This allows end users to increase resource utilization and optimize their computing footprint for workloads including virtualization, software-defined storage, hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI), data analytics and more.

“Today we further strengthen our partnership with HPE, extending even deeper into the heart of the server market with the HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10. The new HPE server takes advantage of single-socket AMD EPYC processors to deliver 2P performance with 1P economics and efficiency10,” said Scott Aylor, corporate vice president and general manager, datacenter and embedded solutions group, AMD. “Since its introduction, AMD EPYC has challenged customers and ecosystem partners to think differently about processing and server design, and we remain committed to delivering advanced security features and performance to our customers across a variety of workloads including virtualization, software-defined storage, HCI, data analytics and more.”

“AMD EPYC has enabled HPE to pack more performance into an efficient server design, removing the need for a second processor and reducing TCO for our customers. The HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 allows customers to achieve dual-processor performance in a versatile single-socket server,” said Justin Hotard, vice president and general manager, Volume Global Business Unit, HPE. “By providing up to 32 processor cores, 2 terabytes of memory and more fully utilizing 128 PCIe lanes of I/O, we have set the bar for single processor virtualization performance, and with HPE OneView, customers can optimize their applications and dramatically speed deployment of new virtual machines.”

Availability
The HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 will be available in July.
