At the Red Hat Summit today, AMD’s server group made the first public demonstration of its second generation AMD Opteron X-Series APU codenamed ‘Berlin’. The APU runs on a Linux environment, based on the Fedora Project. The project was founded in 2003 as a result of a merger between Red Hat Linux and Fedora Linux projects and is a community driven Linux distribution. It aims to provide a familiar enterprise class operating environment to developers. It is an important development for developers looking to migrate to x86 APU servers but unwilling to introduce new tools and software platforms into IT environments, according to AMD.

HSA on servers, finally.
