TYAN Launches AMD EPYC HPC & Storage Servers At SC19

Today at SC19 in Denver, Colorado, TYAN announced its newest lineup of HPC and storage server platforms that are based off of the AMD EPYC 7002 Series processors. The new lineup is aimed to deliver maximum performance and is aimed at the datacenter. 

There have been many announcements around AMD EPYC Rome CPUs today, and now TYAN has released advancements in its Transport HX and SX Product lines. For the HX, TYAN rolled out three new platforms powered by AMD. The Transport HX TN83-B8251 is a 2U server platform that supports up to eight 3.5” hot-swap SATA or NVMe U.2 tool-less drive bays, and is ideal for AI training and inference applications deploying 4 double-width or 8 single-width GPU cards, and 2 PCIe 4.0 x16 high-speed networking cards. The Transport HX TS75-B8252 and Transport HX TS75A-B8252 are 2U server platforms with support for 32 DIMM slots and up to 9 PCIe 4.0 slots. These server platforms are ideal for HPC and virtualization.

On the single socket side of things, TYAN released the Transport SX TS65-S8036 a 2U storage server with support for 16 DDR4-3200 DIMM slots, 12 front-access 3.5” and 2 rear-access 2.5” hot-swap, tool-less drive bays for data storage applications, the 12 front drive bays are pre-configured to support 10 SATA and 2 NVMe U.2 drives. TYAN has another 2U storage server in the Transport SX TS65A-S8036 that supports 26 front-access and 2 rear-access 2.5” hot-swap, tool-less drive bays for high-performance data streaming applications, the 26 front drive bays can be configured as 26 SATA, or 10 SATA and 16 NVMe U.2 drives. 

TYAN has new 1U servers as well with the Transport SX GC68-B8036 and Transport SX GC68A-B8036. These servers are optimized for CSP IT infrastructure. The GC68-B8036 is a self-contained server supporting four 3.5” and four 2.5” hot-swap, tool-less drive bays that meet most compute and storage requirements; GC68A-B8036 supports twelve 2.5” hot-swap, tool-less drive bays and by deploying 12 NVMe U.2 drives.
