HPC And Storage Servers Enlist Xeon Processors

TYAN unveils its latest line-up of HPC and storage server platforms based on Intel Xeon Scalable Processors. According to the company, the platforms will accelerate data-intensive and cognitive computing workloads for HPC, artificial intelligence, and technical computing applications.


Thunder HX Optimized for HPC and Artificial Intelligence


Featuring inference performance and a high level of data accuracy in real-time, TYAN's Thunder HX FA77-B7119 and Thunder HX GA88-B5631 are optimized for many of today's emerging cognitive computing workloads such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. The 4U FA77-B7119 supports two Intel Xeon Scalable Processors, 24 DIMM slots and up to 11 PCIe x16 (or 21 PCIe x8) slots; The GA88-B5631 is a 1U server with 12 DIMM slots, up to 5 PCIe x16 slots, and a single Intel Xeon Scalable Processor.


The Thunder HX FT77D-B7109 allows a 9th PCIe x16 slot to be installed next to 8 double-wide high-performance accelerator cards. The design is viable for NVMe deployment or high-speed networking like 100 Gigabit EDR Infiniband, 100 Gigabit Ethernet, or 100 Gigabit Intel Omni-Path fabric. The platform specializes in massively parallel workloads including scientific computing, genetic sequencing, oil & gas discovery, large scale facial recognition, and cryptography.


TYAN's Thunder HX FT48T-B7105 is a pedestal workstation platform with dual-socket Intel Xeon Scalable Processors and a total of 6 PCIe x 16 slots and support for up to five high performance workstation graphics cards. This high-end workstation gives maximum I/O to the professional power user, and is aimed at 3D rendering and image processing. The Thunder HX FT48B-B7100 is a 4U dual-socket Intel Xeon Scalable Processor-based platform with 7 total PCIe slots, including 4 in x16 lanes and 3 in x8 lanes. The platform targets industrial automation and large-scale video capture applications.


Thunder SX For Datacenter, Enterprise and Cloud


TYAN's storage platforms span a wide range of hardware specifications. The Thunder SX FA100-B7118 is TYAN's flagship storage server supporting dual socket Intel Xeon Scalable Processors and 100 3.5" drives in a 4U rackmount form factor. The platform is designed for both cold storage and large-scale object storage applications such as Lustre.


TYAN's Thunder SX TN76-B7102 is a 2U dual-socket Intel Xeon Scalable Processor-based storage platform. With the maximum expansion up to 8 PCIe slots, the TN76-B7102 allows users to mix and match combinations of a variety of expansion cards. The platform is designed to support Intel's on-CPU 100Gb/s Omni-Path networking fabric, and is suitable for Big Data applications, including big data analytics, in-memory databases, and data visualization.


The Thunder SX GT62F-B5630 is a 1U server platform designed for hybrid NVMe/SATA cache data storage with support for up to 8 hot-swap NVMe U.2 drives along with an OCP v2.0 LAN Mezzanine. The single CPU socket design makes it a platform for workloads that work best within a single NUMA domain and require large amounts of high-speed flash, such as many media streaming applications.
