DL385 - AMD reliability

Hi,

We are thinking to start to buy AMD servers, but we did not find good references on internet about AMD reliability.

Do you know where I can get that information?

Re: DL385 - AMD reliability

What kind of references are you after?
Are you after references for a HP server model, AMD processor or mainboards used with AMD?

In my opionion I have found AMD processors to work just as well as pentium processors but it does depend on what you are planning to run on it and whether you want to start looking at Dual Core processors as they are brand new.

Some mainboard designs supporting AMD haven't been great. Note: I haven't had the oppertunity to try any of the HP AMD servers....yet.

Re: DL385 - AMD reliability

We haven't been running the DL385 (AMD Opteron 200 series), but have had great success with the DL585 (AMD Opteron 800 series) used in conjunction with VMware's ESX server virtualization product. Most of the documentation about DL385 performance was sponsored by HP or AMD, so I don't know where you'd find an impartial source.
