Migrate virtual machines from Intel- to AMD-based server platforms

Introduction

HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 and HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 servers: based on AMD EPYC and built for virtualization

Virtualization remains the dominant means to maximize efficiency and agility in a Hybrid IT environment. Virtualization drives cost savings, increased server utilization and business agility for businesses of all sizes. The benefits are clear: enterprises report savings of almost 20% from server virtualization, which was the #1 planned infrastructure project for 2017. Accordingly, analysts predict that 41% of new server shipments will be virtualized in 2020 - up from 33% in 2015.
HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 and HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 servers are ideal for virtualization.4 They deliver immediate cost savings from consolidation while providing superior security and simplified management that enhances productivity. Based on the AMD EPYC 7000 series processors, both the HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 1P and the HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 2P servers are game changers for virtualization performance, total cost of ownership (TCO), and security. Both provide the balance of compute, memory and I/O to create an optimal virtualized environment for running multiple workloads.
