Servers are powered by AI for HPC
At this year’s ISC in Frankfurt, Tyan, is showcasing its second generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor-based server platforms. According to the company, they are optimised for predictive analytics, machine learning (ML) and high performance computing (HPC) applications.
“The most demanding workloads including HPC, AI deep learning, data analytics, and multi-cloud infrastructure require maximum performance across compute, memory, storage, and network resources, “said Danny Hsu, vice president of MiTAC Computing Technology’s Tyan business unit
Powered by the newest generation of Intel Xeon Scalable processors, Tyan’s Thunder HX range takes advantage of Intel Deep Learning Boost technology to enable faster machine learning application execution. The Thunder HX FT83-B7119 supports 3Tbyte of memory, 12 hot-swappable 3.5-inch drives in a 4U enclosure. The system is suitable for AI training and inference applications.
Another 4U server system is the Thunder HX FT77D-B7109. It supports dual second generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors with integrated Intel Omni-Path 100Gabit networking fabric that can reach a total of 200Gbits per second fabric connectivity for massively parallel workloads such as scientific computing and large-scale facial recognition.
Tyan’s Thunder HX FT48T-B7105 is a pedestal workstation platform with dual second generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors and support for up to five, high performance workstation graphic cards. The workstation gives maximum I/O to professional power users and can be used for 3D rendering and image processing.
Intel Optane DC persistent memory and increased DDR4 memory speed and capacity features in the Thunder SX FA100-B7118, which is Tyan’s flagship storage server supporting dual second generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors and 100 hot-swap 3.5-inch drives in a 4U rackmount form factor. The platform is designed for both cold storage and large-scale object storage applications such as Lustre.
Visitors will also see the Thunder SX GT90-B7113 which features support for dual Intel Xeon Scalable processors, 12 hot-swap 3.5-inch drives mounted to a service drawer and four hot-swap NVMe U.2 drive bays in a 35-inch deep 1U chassis. The platform matches CSP server-based storage applications by allowing serviceability and density within the same server.
The Thunder CX GT24E-B5556 is a 1U single-socket Intel Xeon E-2100 processor-based server platform for CSP deployment. It has support for up to four DDR4 DIMM slots, one double-width PCIe x16 slot, and dual 10GBase-T Ethernet ports. The platform is optimised for cost-effective cloud gaming applications, confirms Tyan.
