Data center customers looking for a storage adapter solution for EPYC processor deployments can now utilize Microsemi's full suite of Smart Storage solutions with confidence as a fully compatible end-to-end solution.

"As AMD-based processors are increasingly being considered for next-generation server deployments in cloud data centers, extensive interoperability testing between our companies has shown our feature-rich high performance Smart Storage adapters to be a powerful storage solution when paired with AMD's EPYC processors," said Pete Hazen, vice president and general manager of storage solutions at Microsemi.
