New cloud and storage servers unveiled at SC20
TYAN introduced its latest cloud and storage server platforms powered by 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors, which target modern data centres and enterprise markets, at SC20 virtual event in November.
“The accelerating deployment of AI, deep learning, and 5G technologies are powering cloud services we use every day, and therefore data centre providers need to respond to these challenges and opportunities,” said Danny Hsu, Vice President of MiTAC Computing Technology Corporation's TYAN Business Unit. “TYAN’s new cloud and storage platforms provide a diverse range of highly capable options that meet modern application performance and power-efficiency requirements.”
Memory-based computing in 1U dual-socket server
The Transport CX GC79-B8252 and Transport CX GC79A-B8252 are 1U dual-socket AMD EPYC 7002 series processor-based server platforms featuring 32 DDR4 DIMM slots, two standard PCIe Gen.4 x16 expansion slots, and an OCP 3.0 LAN mezzanine slot. The GC79-B8252 platform provides four 3.5-inch SATA drive bays and four 2.5-inch NVMe drive bays with tool-less carriers, while the GC79A-B8252 platform offers twelve 2.5-inch drive bays with up to twelve NVMe U.2 support.
These two systems accommodate two internal NVMe M.2 slots for secure boot drive installation. Both GC79-B8252 and GC79A-B8252 are suited for high-density data centre deployment with a variety of memory-based computing applications.
High-density, 2U server platform with four front-serviced compute nodes
The Transport CX TN73-B8037-X4S is a 2U multi-node server platform with four front-serviced compute nodes, which offers better serviceability and minimises onsite servicing hours. Each node supports one AMD EPYC 7002 series processor, four 2.5-inch tool-less NVMe/SATA drive bays, eight DDR4 DIMM slots, three internal cooling fans, two standard PCIe Gen.4 x16 expansion slots, two internal NVMe M.2 slots and one OCP 2.0 LAN mezzanine slot.
The TN73-B8037-X4S platform is designed for high-density, scale-out server deployments in HPC and CSP (Cloud Service Provider) front-end processing server applications.
Cost-optimised 1U computing server
For deployments that require cost-optimised computing and application caching, the Transport CX GC68-B8036-LE is a 1U single-socket AMD EPYC 7002 series processor-based server platform, featuring four 3.5-inch and four 2.5-inch tool-less NVMe U.2 drive bays, is a direct fit for the workload. The expansion capability of the server includes a pair of PCIe Gen.4 x16 expansion and an OCP 2.0 LAN mezzanine slots.
The GC68-B8036-LE platform can support up to 4TB memory by populating 16x 256GB DDR4 DIMMs. Meanwhile, the Transport CX GC68A-B8036 deploys the same motherboard as GC68-B8036-LE in a 1U chassis; accommodating twelve 2.5-inch tool-less drive bays with support up to twelve NVMe U.2 devices for deployments with an extreme storage IOPS requirement.
2U hybrid software-defined storage server
The Transport SX TS65-B8253 is a 2U dual-socket AMD EPYC 7002 series processor-based storage server supporting 16 DDR4 DIMM slots and seven standard PCIe Gen.4 expansion slots. The platform is equipped with up to two 10GbE and two GbE onboard network connections, twelve front 3.5-inch tool-less SATA drive bays, up to four NVMe U.2 devices, and two rear 2.5-inch tool-less SATA drive bays for boot drive deployment.
TS65-B8253 is a self-contained, hybrid storage server platform designed for software-defined storage deployments in the data centers and enterprises.
