TYAN First Non-x86 Based Platforms

S6791 3D s TYAN First Non x86 Based Platforms

Tyan announce their first non-x86 based platforms, the S6741 and S6791, which
utilizes Raza Microelectronics, Inc.®, (RMI®) XLR 700 and XLR 500 series of
processors, respectively. These platforms represent a new generation of high
performance, cost effective network security appliance platforms. The innovative
RMI XLR Processor® architecture supports up to eight MIPS64®-compatible cores
for a total of 32 threads or virtual CPUs (vCPUs™). Using multiple threads, the
S6741 and S6791 platforms manage tasks by processing additional network traffic
on available threads should a thread be waiting for a data or a packet. In
addition to the platforms, Tyan also provides a variety of copper and optical
interfaces for the platforms.

Tyan Computer Corporation, a premier designer and manufacturer of computing
platforms, is pleased to announce their first non-x86 based platforms, the S6741
and S6791, which utilizes Raza Microelectronics, Inc.®, (RMI®) XLR 700 and XLR
500 series of processors, respectively. These platforms represent a new
generation of high performance, cost effective network security appliance
platforms.

“By developing the S6741 and S6791 platforms around RMI’s multi-core and
multi-threaded XLR processors, Tyan has developed the most feature rich and high
performance solutions for advanced network security applications,” said Irene
Shih, director of product management, Tyan Computer Corp. “With a family of
platforms providing mid to high performance, the S6741 and S6791 satisfies the
need for feature rich platforms at varying price points.”

The innovative RMI XLR Processor® architecture supports up to eight
MIPS64®-compatible cores for a total of 32 threads or virtual CPUs (vCPUs™).
Using multiple threads, the S6741 and S6791 platforms manage tasks by processing
additional network traffic on available threads should a thread be waiting for a
data or a packet. This technology greatly increases processor utilization and
reduces latency to dramatically improve overall throughput. For packet
processing-intensive applications, a single core can adjust in realtime the
processing resources on a given task.

“By providing feature rich and exceptionally high performance platforms based on
the XLR processor, Tyan provides OEMs the ability to build world-class solutions
with reduced time to market,” said Mark Litvack, director of business
development, RMI. “XLR provides a level of performance and features previously
unavailable and Tyan’s S6741 and S6791 platforms provide a family of products
scaling in features and performance to address all variations of integrated next
generation applications; including integrated security (firewall, VPN,
anti-virus, intrusion detection and prevention), web services, virtualized
storage, load balancing, server offload and intelligent routing and switching
systems.”

Each platform includes an extensive range of peripherals, large caches, and
accelerated interconnects around the XLR Processor to deliver a processing
solution optimized for maximum throughput and workload efficiency. The S6741
combines the XLR 500 series processor to address mid-range unified threat
management systems. It incorporates 6 x 1Gigabit Ethernet ports with
LAN-by-pass, PCI-X expansion slots for additional acceleration/compression cards
or a LAN card for additional Ethernet ports. The S6791 combines the XLR 700
series processor to address the high-end security appliance market. It can
optionally be configured to support up to 14 x 1Gigabit Ethernet ports and has
the same expansion capabilities as the S6741.

In addition to the platforms, Tyan also provides a variety of copper and optical
interfaces for the platforms.

RMI will be showcasing the S6791 to attendees of RSA San Francisco 2007 in their
meeting suites at the W Hotel.
