Certifiable

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Novell has certified AMD's new server platform.

So now you know that NetWare is fully reliable and interoperable on the AMD Athlon MP processor and the AMD-760MP chipset, AMD's multiprocessing platform for one- and two-way servers.

Tyan, the Taiwanese mobo maker and AMD client firm, hailed the Novell certification as "certainly a significant milestone in the validation of this breakthrough platform."

More like an inchstone. Getting Novell on board is nice for AMD - it removes one potential sales objection. Getting Microsoft and some heavyweight Unix vendors will be even nicer. But so far, there is not a compelling reason for server makers or their corporate customers to junk Intel kit just yet.

The AMD server rigs certified by Novell incorporate Tyan's dual-processor Thunder K7 S2462 system board. ®
