Advantech Delivers Higher Performance Network Security, Storage, and Edge Platforms based on AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series Processors

  • New high-performance servers, motherboards and network appliances support up to 64 cores in single and 128 cores in dual-socket designs based on 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors to power today’s anywhere and everywhere data centers
  • Compute, storage and networking optimized configurations accelerate critical workloads for faster cloud, enterprise, industrial, healthcare, cybersecurity, AIoT and video application performance
  • The new platforms are immediately available for evaluation and will be mass produced during 2H 2021 

Taipei, Taiwan, Oct 6th, 2021 – Advantech (TWSE: 2395.TW), a global leader in AIoT, today announced a comprehensive portfolio of high-performance servers, motherboards and network appliances based on 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors that set a new standard for the modern data center and network edge. The new off-the-shelf range includes high throughput network security appliances, short depth edge servers and hyper-converged infrastructure and storage platforms targeting edge to cloud deployments. In addition, service and solution providers can leverage Advantech’s strong hardware design and manufacturing capabilities to build server-class solutions tailored to deliver higher value to enterprise and industrial customers. 

The new Advantech SKY servers and FWA appliances accelerate digital transformation by leveraging the exceptional per socket performance of AMD EPYC™ 7003 Series processors. Advantech’s new single and dual socket designs take advantage of up to 64 “Zen 3” cores per socket, 32MB of L3 cache and PCIe 4 connectivity to improve HPC, cloud and enterprise workload performance with high core density, I/O and memory throughput. The new platforms also integrate new security features through AMD Infinity Guard [1]  such as Secure Encrypted Virtualization-Secure Nested Paging (SEV-SNP) that adds strong memory integrity protection capabilities to help prevent malicious hypervisor-based attacks. As a result, service and solution providers can deliver more efficient, lower TCO solutions that address today’s hybrid cloud computing, storage, networking and security needs.

Cloud, enterprise, industrial, healthcare, cybersecurity and video customers tapping into the new range can also leverage advanced hardware design capabilities from Advantech for faster time-to-market. Computing, storage and networking optimized platforms maximize performance, density and throughput for critical workloads. The new systems also integrate field-proven high reliability features from Advantech including advanced platform management and redundant BIOS and firmware images via on-board IPMI v2.0-compliant BMC with Redfish support that provide a safe way to recover from component failures and remote fail-safe updates. In addition, the new standard off-the-shelf platforms can be tailored leveraging Advantech design and manufacturing services to meet specific application requirements from minor branding, mechanical or firmware changes all the way up to fully customized configurations. All this combined with Advantech global services network and industrial 5+2 life cycle support.

“In a post pandemic world, enterprises demand fastest application performance to thrive in an uncertain, changing business environment,” said James Yang, vice president, Cloud IoT Group, Advantech. “Through our new portfolio based on 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors , we empower customers to innovate faster and stay one step ahead of competition, by taking advantage of fantastic server CPU performance in a thoughtfully designed platform that can help improve a customer’s TCO.”

“The 3rd Gen AMD EPYC™ processor ecosystem continues to grow, giving customers broad options for next gen high-performance server, network security and storage appliances,” said Rajneesh Gaur, corporate vice president and general manager, Embedded Business Unit, AMD. “These new platforms from Advantech give customers access to higher performance and differentiated features enabled by AMD EPYC™ processors, while taking advantage of Advantech’s design capabilities to build optimized solutions for a wide range of vertical markets.”
