T III 3D thumb TYAN Unveiled flexBLADE on AMD Opteron

TYAN today announced the release of its versatile flexBLADE™ technical
workgroup computing platform based on AMD Opteron™ processors.
Capable of a wide range of configurations, the versatile flexBLADE™ is comprised
of a single chassis form factor with up to 5 dual socket blades, configurable as
a cluster, SMP, hybrid-combination or small server farm. Supporting the full
range Next Generation AMD Opteron processors, the platform can scale from a cool
and quiet, low power 1500 watt departmental solution, up to a robustly
configured 3000 watt compute powerhouse.
flexBLADE™ will be available through strategic OEM and System Integrator
partners in the coming months.

T III 3D TYAN Unveiled flexBLADE on AMD Opteron

TYAN today announced the release of its versatile flexBLADE™ technical
workgroup computing platform based on AMD Opteron™ processors.

flexBLADE™ platform is a multi-purpose built, stand alone solution targeting the
computational needs of technical workgroups, research and development teams and
SMB customers throughout the High Performance Computing market.

TYAN flexBLADE™ delivers a dedicated computational platform with multiple
configuration options in a self contained form factor. The flexBLADE™ can be
utilized as an individual desk-side cluster or departmental resource or easily
rack mounted and scaled out as an HPC solution. “The flexBLADE™ meets the
computational, networking and storage requirements of many individuals and
workgroups in one platform that is compact, quiet, cool and energy efficient”,
said Leo Yuan, President & General Manager of Scalable Servers Corporation.

Capable of a wide range of configurations, the versatile flexBLADE™ is comprised
of a single chassis form factor with up to 5 dual socket blades, configurable as
a cluster, SMP, hybrid-combination or small server farm. Supporting the full
range Next Generation AMD Opteron processors, the platform can scale from a cool
and quiet, low power 1500 watt departmental solution, up to a robustly
configured 3000 watt compute powerhouse. The flexBLADE™ also supports scaling
out beyond standard dual socket to quad socket SMP, FAT NODE, configurations
with ample memory support (16 DIMM slots per node, or 80 total DIMM Slots per
chassis), storage (up to 10-2.5” and 14-3.5” disks), and a PCIe x16 slot per
blade which allows multiple graphics heads per platform. Built-in networking
includes 10 or 20 Gigabit InfiniBand, 10 Gigabit and 1 Gigabit Ethernet with
full system management that allows the flexBLADE™ platform a wide range of
configurations to match performance and cost requirements.

flexBLADE™ will be available through strategic OEM and System Integrator
partners in the coming months.
