Product Overview Power, Optimize, Secure: EPYC™ 7000 Series Meets The Needs for Today’s Datacenter Workloads
Flexibility. Performance. Security. Born in the cloud, the AMD EPYC system on chip delivers 122 percent better memory bandwidth, 60 percent more I/O and 45 percent more cores than the competitor to power data center applications. Whether you deploy bare metal, virtualized, or in the cloud, the AMD EPYC processor powers fast, responsive, and secure IT.

AMD EPYC provides up to 32 cores, 8 memory channels and 128 PCIe® 3.0 lanes per CPU unlocking capabilities and performance previously available only in 2-socket architectures.

With up to 64 cores, 4 TB of memory, and 128 lanes of PCIe® connectivity, 2-socket servers built with the AMD EPYC™ SoC have the flexibility, performance, and security to efficiently support the most demanding workloads.

The Changing Demands of the Datacenter
Datacenters have rapidly evolved, with software innovation greatly surpassing the ability of hardware technology to efficiently support it. The Internet of Things, the Cloud, and an ever increasing mobile workforce have transformed datacenters of all sizes to become service providers, providing intelligible data on demand in a secure manner.

Over the past decade, there have been major advances within the software ecosystem, while the x86 server CPU has seen only incremental and comparatively nominal improvements, leaving the modern datacentre constrained and starved for innovation. This new era of computing demands a new breed of processor, one with the power to efficiently support the workloads of today’s software-defined datacenter while providing protection from the silicon level up against sophisticated threats.

To achieve optimized performance for today’s datacenter applications, a processor that delivers more performance, flexibility, and security through a better balance of resources is essential. AMD offers the innovation required for the cloud-era datacenter with AMD EPYC—a system on chip (SoC) that is designed from the ground up to deliver real innovation to efficiently support the needs of existing and future datacenters.

Powering The Datacenter
The modern datacenter needs more cores, more memory, more I/O, and more security. AMD EPYC powers the datacenter with 32 cores, 64 threads, 8 memory channels with up to 2 TB of memory per socket, and 128 PCIe-3 lanes coupled with the industry’s first hardware-embedded x86 server security solution. With servers built on EPYC technology, cloud environments can drive greater scale and performance, virtualized
datacenters can further increase consolidation ratios while delivering better performing virtual machines and Big Data, and analytics environments can collect and analyze larger data sets much faster. High performance applications in research labs can solve complex problem sets in a significantly accelerated manner. EPYC, with all the critical compute, memory, I/O, and security resources brought together in the SoC with the right ratios, delivers industry-leading performance and enables lower TCO.

Optimizing Performance
AMD EPYC provides breakthrough processing power balanced with the industry-leading memory and I/O capacity needed to substantially eliminate performance bottlenecks. With the flexibility to choose from 8 to 32 cores, EPYC enables you to deploy the right hardware platforms to meet your workload needs from virtualized infrastructure to large-scale big-data and analytics platforms and legacy line-of-business applications. You can rightsize your infrastructure using EPYC with fewer cores without sacrificing memory capacity or I/O. EPYC provides the memory capacity and bandwidth to processor cores to efficiently run memory-intensive workloads. With EPYC you can leverage industry-leading I/O bandwidth that matches the capability of the CPU cores to move data to and from the network while supporting I/O-intensive workloads. EPYC, with a balanced set of resources, offers you an unprecedented opportunity to rightsize your datacentre infrastructure for enhanced performance and cost efficiency.

1-Socket Servers That Can Deliver 2-Socket Server Performance
Today, the vast majority of servers populating the datacenter are two socket servers, and the majority of these servers are greatly underutilized. Datacenters are full of expensive underutilized two-socket servers purchased for the additional memory, I/O, or enterprise management features not available in single-socket servers. EPYC processor-based no-compromise single-socket servers with up to 32 multithreaded cores, 8 memory channels offering up to 2 TB of RAM, 128 PCIe-3 lanes, and the industry’s first hardware-embedded x86 server security solution can meet the needs of your applications by enabling better resource utilization and greater flexibility. AMD EPYC processor-based no-compromise single-socket servers with a better balance of resources enable you to efficiently run many former two-socket-server workloads and provide real-world performance gains while enabling lower total cost of ownership.

Securing The Datacenter
Securing data and software has never been more challenging or more important. As attack surfaces increase, companies of all sizes struggle to protect themselves and their customers. A sound security strategy does not end at a firewall. Companies of all sizes face increasing risks of hacking that lead to data theft, ransomware, and other forms of exploitation. Security threats have become more complex as the number of attack vectors increase among more and more attack surfaces—both external and internal. AMD EPYC processor-based servers shield the datacenter from external and internal threats, helping keep software and data safe while booting, running, and moving from server to server. The AMD Secure Root-of-Trust technology, with a secure root of trust, ensures that only cryptographically signed software is booted, depending on your server vendor’s implementation. AMD Secure Run Technology encrypts all software and data in memory, guarding against unauthorized snooping and cold boot attacks while supporting secure VM isolation. AMD Secure Move technology also enables secure migration of virtual machines and containers between EPYC processor-based servers. AMD EPYC, with the industry’s first hardware embedded x86 server security solution, provides unprecedented security for your datacenter software and data, keeping them safe while booting, running, and moving between EPYC processor-powered servers.
