Boston jumps on Opteron bandwagon

Resigns from Intel-only camp

Boston Limited is spreading its processor wings, by taking on AMD for the first time. The server room products distie is kicking off with its own-brand AMD Opteron and AMD dual-core rack servers in 1U, 2U, 3U and 4U heights.

And now for a quote from Boston’s MD, Manoj Nayee, to explain the firm’s defection from the Intel-only camp: "Boston Limited has historically provided exclusively Supermicro Intel-based server solutions. However, our new range brings the AMD option into the realms of a server-class reality, complete with a full range of features not previously available to the OEM community including genuine server management."

So there you have it. ®
