AMD expands data center solutions capabilities with Pensando
AMD has completed its acquisition of Pensando Systems in a transaction valued at approximately USD 1.9 billion.
Pensando’s distributed services platform will expand AMD’s data center product portfolio with a high-performance data processing unit (DPU) and software stack that are already deployed at scale.
The Pensando team will join the AMD Data Center Solutions Group, led by AMD Senior Vice President and General Manager Forrest Norrod, a press release reads.
“The data center remains one of the largest growth opportunities for AMD. The addition of the Pensando Systems team with their hardware and software portfolio will enables us to offer cloud, enterprise and edge customers a broader portfolio of leadership compute engines that can be optimized for their specific workloads,” said AMD Chair and CEO Dr. Lisa Su.
Pensando will remain focused on executing their product and technology roadmaps, now with additional scale to accelerate their business with the backing of AMD.
