TYAN announces the flexBLADE™ Technical Workgroup Computing Platform

(PresseBox) (Fremont, CA & Taipei, Taiwan, ) 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.
