AMD Chips, Strategies, and Roadmap

AMD introduces a new family of energy-efficient Opteron processors for scale-out server systems. The new Opteron processors X1150 and X2150 are designed to compete with Intel's Atom CPUs. According to AMD, the new chips offer twice as many cores and four times as much RAM as the Intel Atom support S1260. As this issue goes to press, the company has also announced a new server strategy and roadmap, including a new portfolio of Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) and CPUs. AMD is also looking for traction in the market for high-core-count ARM server systems, with a new 64-bit ARM chip code named "Seattle."

After a long wait, Oracle has finally released the latest version of the Java Enterprise Edition.

The latest version of the GlassFish Application Server 4.0 is compatible with the current Java Enterprise standard. The SDK is available for download on the Java EE 7 SDK downloads page.
