We are pleased to announce the expansion of Nutanix and AMD platform offerings that include the high-performance, energy-efficient AMD EPYCTM 9004 Series processors. The 4th Gen AMD EPYC processors offer the industry's highest SPECrate performance and best SPECpower® energy efficiency.  

In August 2023, we announced the availability of Nutanix Cloud Platform™ software, compatible with validated servers, certified with AMD EPYC processors, from Lenovo and HPE. We are thrilled to announce the addition of Nutanix NX-8155A-G9™ and Dell XC7625-24™ servers to the Nutanix family of validated AMD server platforms. These new offerings extend the portfolio of Nutanix-validated AMD systems to seven platforms. This collaboration is further evidence of the unwavering commitment of AMD and Nutanix to deliver customers unparalleled server options.

The Nutanix NX-8155A-G9 is the first AMD server in the Nutanix NX portfolio. This 2U dual-socket AMD platform supports up to 12 Large Form Factor drives and 3 Terabytes of DRAM with a wide-variety of I/O options that address enterprise-class workloads from high-density server virtualization to business critical and database applications. The 2U Dell XC7625-24 dual-socket server (available at the end of this year) broadens the Dell XC 16G generation platform lineup with the first AMD EPYC CPU-based server featuring up to 24 Small Form Factor drives with up to 96 cores per socket.

These models support a wide range of Nvidia® GPU (A/L/H-series) cards for your virtual desktop, artificial intelligence, and machine learning applications. High-performance all-flash storage and low-cost hybrid storage options are offered across all AMD platforms, making these systems well suited for Nutanix Files Storage™ and Nutanix Objects Storage™ workloads.  

AMD EPYC 4 Positioning

AMD EPYC processors offer options that can bring exceptional performance and value for the most demanding workloads. For example, database applications benefit from higher frequency CPUs and lower core counts in order to maximize performance and cost. The AMD EYPC processors optimized for high frequency are engineered to provide superior performance at varying core count options. AMD EPYC mid-stack processors strike a balance between power and efficiency, offering robust performance across various applications at great value. These processors are designed to meet the demands of modern workloads, delivering superior computational performance while ensuring energy efficiency. Their versatile performance makes them ideal for businesses seeking reliable solutions without compromising on efficiency or value.

Our collaborative solutions maximize the value we bring to our customers and tap into the hardware and software innovations offered by Nutanix and AMD. Our portfolio covers the major Nutanix-focused solutions with a wide variety of component choices. AMD and Nutanix are working hard to bring even more AMD EPYC CPU-based platform solutions as new technologies are enabled.
