    Appro Unleashes its 4U Quad AMD Opteron Server at LinuxWorld
    Posted by Maria McLaughlin, Monday January 19 2004 @ 05:31PM EST

    LinuxWorld Conference and Expo – New York, NY – January 21, 2004 – Appro (http://www.appro.com), a leading provider of high-performance enterprise computing systems introduces its brand new 4U Appro 4145H server based on quad AMD Opteron™ processors at LinuxWorld in New York at AMD’s booth # 413. This product will be available for purchase starting February 2004.

    The Appro 4145H is designed to address the needs of high-performance, high-availability server and workstation users. This quad AMD Opteron processor-based server delivers high compute performance with expandable storage capability; PCI-X and AGP 8X slots support providing performance and capability for high-end graphic simulations. This server is ideal for compute-intensive graphics application such as mechanical and engineering graphics simulation and rendering, scientific visualization, digital content creation and more.

    Appro 4145H Key Features: Up to four AMD Opteron processors, simultaneous 32-bit and 64-bit computing capability, HyperTransport™ technology, up to 64GB of DDR memory in 16 DIMM Slots, PCI-X and 8x AGP slot support for advanced graphics cards, 4 hot-swappable HDDs – IDE or SCSI hard disks, a 5.25” drive bay for tape devices, remote server management capabilities, choice of Windows or Linux operating systems.

    “Appro 4145H servers based on AMD Opteron processors will offer an outstanding portfolio of highly flexible, scalable server solution. Users will increase project productivity through exceptional application, visualization and data-throughput while still achieving outstanding price/performance,” said John Lee, Director of Product Marketing of Appro.

    “Appro’s customers deploying the new Appro 4U 4145H server based on AMD Opteron processors can experience outstanding performance capability, reliability and scalability for the most demanding enterprise-level and high-end graphic/technical applications,” said Ben Williams, director of the Server/Workstation Business Segment at AMD. “These cutting-edge systems based on AMD64 technology provide best-in-class performance for customers’ 32-bit applications and offer a seamless transition to 64-bit computing.”

    Product and Cluster Demonstrations at the AMD booth # 413: Appro will demonstrate the Appro HyperBlade Cluster Solution based on AMD Opteron Processors utilizing Redhat Enterprise Linux operating system running Oracle 10g RAC on a Topspin Communications' Infiniband network connected with EqualLogic iSCSI SAN storage system. Also, Appro will demonstrate the Appro BladeDome Cluster Management Solution designed exclusively for the Appro HyperBlade Cluster to deliver a cost-effective and simple management solution to system administrators. Along with this demonstration, Appro will showcase its brand new Appro 4145H quad AMD Opteron processor-based server.
