TYAN Announces New RAID Controller Product Line for the Server Channel Market

TYAN delivers it’ own HBAs and RAID Add-on Cards based on LSI SAS and MegaRAID technology


Fremont, CA – September 30th, 2009 - TYAN, an industry-leading server platform provider, announces a new RAID controller card product line for Server Channel Customers. TYAN unveils the new product line, that incorporates LSI? SAS and MegaRAIDR technology, and will be bundled directly with TYAN IntelR XeonR 5500 series processor based platforms in October 2009.

The first TYAN Power HBA/RAID Add-on Cards to be released are the RAID SAS P3204SR, P3208SR, P3214EHR, P3218EHR, P3219EHRX and P3228EHR cards. The TYAN Power HBA/RAID Add-on Cards are based on LSI 3Gb/s SAS controller and RAID-on-Chip (ROC) ICs and MegaRAIDR technology, and offer multiple cutting edge support tools for various server/workstation environments. The TYAN Power HBA/RAID Add-on Cards enable both internal and external RAID storage connectivity for TYAN Intel Xeon 5500 series processor based platforms. By bundling the TYAN Intel Xeon 5500 series processor based platforms with the TYAN Power HBA/RAID Add-on Card, customers can expect a fully validated platform that is designed to provide better serviceability and easier system deployment at a lower overall cost.

For the low-to-mid level storage sector, the TYAN P3204SR and P3208SR provide low-cost RAID 0/1/10/5/ capability and are targeted to the PCI-Express server and workstation market. The P3204SR embeds the LSISAS1064E 4-port SAS controller and is designed with 1x Mini SAS 4i (SFF 8087) port, a maximum of 4 logical disks supported and PCIe x4 bandwidth. The P3208SR embeds the LSISAS1068E 8-port SAS controller and is designed with 2x Mini SAS 4i (SFF 8087) ports, a maximum of 8 logical disks supported and PCIe x4 bandwidth.

For the mid level storage sector, the TYAN P3214EHR and P3218EHR help to provide a higher level of performance in a cost effective RAID 0/1/10/5/6/50/ solution. The P3214EHR embeds the LSISAS1078 ROC IC and is designed with 1x Mini SAS 8087 (ipass) connectors, PCIe x8 bandwidth, 128 MB DDRII Cache (667MHz) and can support up to 16 Hard Drives. The P3218EHR also embeds the LSISAS1078 ROC and is designed with 2x Mini SAS 8087 (ipass) connectors, PCIe x8 bandwidth, 256 MB DDRII Cache (667MHz) and can support up to 32 Hard Drives. Both of these cards are designed to generate superior speed and performance capability than what is found with traditional 1U/2U server or high-density platforms.

For the high performance computing sector, the TYAN P3219EHRX and P3228EHR will provide the large database and datacenter customer with advanced direct connect hardware that will support RAID 0/1/10/5/6/50/60 solutions. The P3219EHRX embeds the LSISAS1078 ROC and is designed with 2x Mini SAS 8087 x4 internal and 2x external 8088 connectors, Remote Battery Backup, SES and SGPIO Management, PCIE x8 bandwidth, 512MB DDRII Cache (667MHz) and can support up to 240 Hard drives. The P3228EHR embeds the IntelR IOP333 chipset and is designed with 4x Mini SAS 8087(ipass) connectors, PCIe x8 bandwidth, 256MB DDRII Cache (400MHz), Remote Battery Backup, SES inband and SES/I2c (3 wire) Management and can support up to 122 Hard Drives.
