AMD Welcomes New President & CEO, Rory Read
I wanted to reach out to introduce myself and share my enthusiasm about our opportunities for joint success. One of the many reasons I joined AMD is because it is a true innovator. AMD is uniquely positioned to drive the industry forward and deliver the next "big thing," like we've already done with 64-bit computing, world-beating graphics solutions and the invention of the world's first APUs.

Most recently, we began shipping our first 16-core server processors and the first processor based on our newest "Bulldozer" architecture. The "Bulldozer" core represents the beginning of unprecedented performance scaling for x86 CPUs, and I'm excited to be joining AMD at the beginning of that innovation cycle.

My focus is to ensure that AMD executes; that we win your trust by meeting or exceeding every commitment we make, all while delivering high quality, high value solutions that help you win.

Thank you for your continued support.

Rory Read, CEO

Virtualization – Business Travel IT Grows with HP BladeSystem
HP Concur works with HP to reduce its physical server count by 40 percent, support 30 percent data growth, reduce power consumption, reduce staff administration time, and reduce TCO by 10 percent. Concur needed to pack more processing power into less hardware, while leaving room for growth. To this end, Concur began deploying an IT environment consisting of virtualized HP ProLiant server blades with
AMD Opteron processors nearly three years ago—a process that will conclude later this year.
