“Cyllene’s software ecosystem proved to be perfectly compatible with AMD EPYC™ processors, as there are no core restrictions with their chosen open-source software. When you factor in the license cost-savings with open-source software, the performance per watt is even more cost-effective.”

Higher performance, lower power consumption

Lenovo and AMD worked together to help a leading managed service provider in France to maintain high performance while reducing energy consumption at its new data centers. Cyllene had clear requirements: provide its virtualized servers with maximum memory capacity, fast networking and memory, and high CPU bandwidth—all with high levels of energy efficiency. Lenovo servers with AMD EPYC™ processors were the answer.

Customer Problem

To strengthen data center security, Cyllene developed ALTER cloud: a new, high-security platform that will enable it to meet future e-commerce requirements.

Lenovo Solution

Based on Lenovo servers powered by AMD EPYC™ processors, the infrastructure platform for ALTER cloud offers high-performance data encryption and interoperability with Cyllene’s chosen open-source software stack

Business Impact

By using AMD EPYC™ processors, Lenovo designed a server solution with a dense data center footprint—helping the company to keep the project within budget.

“Thanks to Lenovo, our new infrastructure has allowed us to cut our data center power consumption and heat emissions by 30%.”
