While many of today's multi-processor platforms include costly features such as RDRAM support, integrated SCSI and extensive server management, the Tiger 200 is based on proven, cost-effective technologies that provide exceptional performance and value, including the VIA® Apollo™ Pro133A chipset. With its robust feature set, the Tiger 200 will be a viable solution for users requiring top-notch server performance at an affordable price.
"The Tiger 200 provides IT professionals and power-users with a cost-effective multi-processor platform for the latest Pentium III processors" states Danny Hsu, Director of Strategic Marketing at Tyan. "With a powerful feature set that includes dual network controllers, integrated RAID technology and hardware monitoring, the Tiger 200 is the perfect platform for building affordable desktop and rackmount servers. Furthermore, with it's 4x AGP slot, the Tiger 200 also performs well in the entry-level workstation space".
Integrated RAID Technology
In addition to dual-channel DMA/100 support, the Tiger 200 utilizes the Promise® FastTrak100™ chipset to provide RAID technology right on the systemboard. This design enables users to easily protect their valuable data through the implementation of RAID 0, 1 or 0+1 technology. The FastTrak100 also incorporates features normally found in high-end SCSI RAID solutions including Tagged Command Queuing, Scatter/Gather DMA, Elevator Seek and more. These features, when combined with DMA/100 hard drives, provide Tiger 200 users with a powerful RAID solution that rivals the performance of higher-end SCSI RAID solutions.
