Opteron enters telecom - carrier grade SUN blades

"Today Sun strengthens its leadership in the telecom market -- Sun's largest vertical market -- where Netra servers are used by all of the top 10 network equipment providers worldwide".

Why Opteron? Why? Why? Why?

64 bit, big iron reliability, performane/watt, dedicated memory channels, 3 hyperTransport links for total of 24GB/s bandwidth.

Intel's FSB has a total of 6.4GB/s, not enough bandwidth to handle DDR2 memory, no room left for massive amount of IP traffic.

The SUN shines.

Yes, with a pile of rack mount or blade AMD64 servers, and with Grid installed, you can have a Sun Grid at home!!
