Altus Server Features

The Altus server series is based on leading AMD Opteron 6300 and 4300 processor families with up to 16 cores per processor and 64 cores per rack unit with outstanding density.

Support more virtual machines per server and a larger volume of requests in web and cloud-computing environments by relying on:

  • 4 memory controllers per processor delivering an aggregate memory bandwidth of up to 51.2GB/s for super-fast memory access for each core
  • HyperTransport3 connectivity between processors for fast access to non-local memory
  • Available in energy-efficient 1U, high-density 1U twin and versatile 2U rack-mount form factors
  • Commercial or free Linux distribution options (preinstallation service is complimentary)
  • Three-year warranty included with every server
