Fremont, California – February, 15th, 2011 - TYAN, an industry-leading server platform manufacturer, and a subsidiary of MiTAC International Corp., today launched a new 4U server system designed for CPU-intensive and HPC applications that supports four AMD® Opteron™ 6100 series processors. TYAN offers both the 4-way S8812 motherboard, as well as the FT48-B8812 server platform.
Quad Socket G34 Motherboard – TYAN S8812
The TYAN S8812 server motherboard is based on the AMD SR5690 chipset and supports up to four twelve/eight-core Opteron 6100 series processors. The four processors share data via HyperTransport™ (HT3) links at 6.4 GT/s. The TYAN S8812 also supports four-channel memory with eight DIMM slots per processor to provide up to 512 MB of registered DDR3 memory. Both 1.5V and 1.35V (low power) memory modules are supported. An on-board LSI SAS2008 controller provides up to eight 6Gb/s SAS ports for server-class storage connectivity. Other features include four PCI-E 2.0 slots, three 1-GbE network ports, and integrated IPMI 2.0 support via an AST2050 BMC controller.
Barebone Server System – FT48-B8812
“Our newest 4-way server supports up to 48 processing cores in a single system, providing the most powerful High-Performance Computing (HPC) platform TYAN has offered to date. We designed this system specifically to provide best-of-class performance for processor-intensive HPC applications,” stated TYAN’s Director of Product Marketing, Kevin Hart. The barebone system includes a 4U enclosure, dual 770W power supplies, and the S8812 motherboard. The system supports eight hot-swappable 3.5” hard disks, along with three 5.25” drive bays, and is cooled by six redundant 120mm fans that are automatically controlled by thermal sensors to save power and reduce noise.
The TYAN S8812 motherboard has received VMware certification. Both products are available now through TYAN distributors worldwide. OEM pricing is available on request.
