AMD Servers

By ramana ·
Wanted info on AMD Servers. We are in the process of buying AMD servers for Our Lotus Domino, Oracle 9i App and Citrix Apps. We have boiled down to 2 choices IBM X3655 and the HP DL 385G2 both of which are AMD Model 2216 at 2.4Ghz. Wanted to know if AMD is good or shld i move to intel only. Has anyone used any of the above 2 server models . Would appreciate ur feedback on the same .

Thanks in advance

We use the HP DL385, both G1 and G2 for all the apps you describe above.

We have noticed no problems related to them having AMD processors. We get very good performance out of them. One thing I've noticed is their pretty high power pull and they create a lot of heat in our data center. We have one rack full of DL585 G2's and it is HOT behind it.
