Taipei - June 1st, 2010 - TYAN, an industry-leading server platform provider, a subsidiary of MiTAC International Corp., demonstrates its entire series of cutting-edge cloud computing platforms during Computex 2010 (booth # L832). TYAN also announces the Mole-8.5 system at Institute of Process Engineering (IPE), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), the first supercomputer in the world that uses the latest NVIDIA Tesla C2050 GPUs with a theoretical peak performance (Rpeak) of 1Pflops in double precision, ranked as the Top 3 supercomputer in China and the NO.19of the 35th TOP500 List(released in Hamburger, Germany on 31st of May) worldwide, was built with TYAN FT72-B7015 platform.
There are three major areas inside of the TYAN booth that showcases the latest solutions. The Cloud Computing Experience Area is live demoing of the TYAN GT24-B7016 coupled with other digital devices that fully demonstrates the cutting-edge Cloud Computing solutions. Visitors can learn about latest Intel® technology and the whole array of TYAN platforms supporting the Intel® Xeon® 5600 series processors (codename: Westmere-EP) in the Intel Showcase Area. For the latest TYAN platforms that support the latest AMD® 12-core Opteron™ 6100 Series Processors (codenamed: “Magny-Cours"), visitors can go to AMD Demo Area.
The Mole-8.5 system consistsof 372 computing and data processing nodes based on the TYAN FT72-B7015 platform which is developed jointly by TYAN and IPE. Each platform is a 4U 2-way GPU barebones server, which embedded with (2) Intel® Xeon® 5520 series processors and(6) NVIDIA Tesla C2050 per each node, which will achieve a theoretical peak performance (Rpeak) of approximately 3TFlops in double precision. The Mole-8.5 system of IPE, CAS has achieved a Linpack performance (Rmax) of 207.3 TFlops and even higher performance in some real applications. Utilizing the TYAN hardware designs, this system will not only provide the highest performance, but also provides scalability and advanced floating point processing capabilities demanded by research and design industries.
“This is a fantastic platform!” said Prof. Wei Ge, project leader for the Mole-8.5 system at IPE, CAS. “We strongly believe it is the right choice for a wide range of applications that can take full advantage of high performance GPUs. It is one of the most cost-effective, energy-efficient, compact and reliable component we can find to build our system, and its capability has been demonstrated in our multi-scale discrete simulations for a number of scientific and industrial applications.”
“Being the leading provider in the channel server market, TYAN is focused on advanced R&D capability and manufacturing ability,” said Albert Mu, Vice President of TYAN Business Unit of MiTAC International Corporation. “TYAN is proud to take part in the Mole-8.5 system projects of IPE, CAS and looks forward to demonstrating the design concept and all the other high end solutions at Computex 2010. TYAN is devoted to adopting leading technology and developing cutting-edge platforms to allow our customers to become the leaders in their industries. The participation of the Mole-8.5 system projects of IPE, CAS is the demonstration of TYAN’s commitment as the hardware provide behind customers.” TYAN will showcase all the latest platforms including the FT72-B7015 during Computex 2010.
