TYAN Highlights HPC and Cloud Platforms Featuring Upcoming Intel Xeon Processor Scalable Family at ISC 2017

New 4U 8-GPU server platform to accelerate HPC and data analytics workloads

FRANKFURT, Germany, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TYAN®, an industry-leading server platform design manufacturer and subsidiary of MiTAC Computing Technology Corporation, showcases its new HPC and cloud platforms based on the upcoming Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family this week in Frankfurt, Germany.

TYAN's next generation HPC computing platforms are based on the Intel Xeon Scalable Processor Family and are designed to satisfy the heavy computing workloads of big data and high performance data analytic applications. The FT77D-B7109 is a 4U dual-socket GPU server platform with dual PCI-E root complex topology supporting up to 8 Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor modules. It specializes in massively parallel workloads including scientific computing, genetic sequencing, oil & gas discovery, large scale facial recognition, and brute force cryptography.

The new HPC exhibits also include a 4U general purpose server, FT48B-B7100. This 4U dual-socket server platform features 7 PCIe slots and supports up to 4 Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor modules. It is an ideal building block for low cost switchless GPU servers or any number of applications which need a large number of I/O devices, such as industrial automation, video surveillance, or large scale video output.

"TYAN's HPC/GPU platforms have been proven within some of the world's largest datacenters and research universities," said Danny Hsu, Vice President of MiTAC Computing Technology Corporation's TYAN Business Unit. "By adopting the upcoming Intel Xeon Processor Scalable family, TYAN enables the datacenter to deliver workload-optimized performance, power efficiency, and hardware-enhanced platform features to address the emerging HPC market, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep neural network applications."

Powered by the upcoming Intel Xeon Processor Scalable Family, TYAN's new range of cloud platforms are optimized for data intensive workloads and virtualization applications to deliver extreme performance, density and scalability with power and cost efficiency.

The energy-efficient 1U GT75B-B7102 dual-socket server, supporting 10 hot-swap 2.5" drive bays (four of which can support NVMe U.2 drives), is an ideal platform for virtualization and in-memory databases like Apache Ignite. Adopting the same motherboard, the 2U TN76-B7102 dual-socket server supports up to 12 3.5" hot-swap drive bays, providing large storage capacity. The platform is designed for multiple application scenarios including technical computing and virtual machine deployment.

Day 3 at Interop ITX 2017, the final day!!

We had an eventful week exhibiting at Interop ITX! After lots of great conversations, a well-attended presentation by our CEO M.H. Raza about "Automating the Physical Layer," and a wealth of different answers to our survey questions, it's time to travel home to Connecticut. First, though, here's a roundup of day 3!

Day 2 at Interop ITX 2017, top of the stretch!

The middle and longest day was filled with:

Fiber Mountain sponsored an Interop ITX Theater presentation on Wednesday 5/17 delivered by M.H. Raza, Fiber Mountain CEO, entitled, "Automating the Physical Layer". The audience was standing room only and several attendees came to our booth immediately after the presentation and learned more about the Glass Core.

...and We're off, at Interop ITX 2017!

We are back in Las Vegas, this time at Interop ITX 2017, the rejuvenated version of Interop. As I have written in the past, Interop has a long history back to the mid-1980's and has reinvented itself many times. Interop ITX 2017 is the newest edition, with only paid attendees and no more free passes to the expo floor. UBM, the owner of Interop, intends to increase the quality of attendees, sessions and leads for exhibitors and sponsors.
