Tatung Announces New Family of High Performance Dual 64-Bit AMD Opteron™ Processor-Based Servers For Rackmount Environments
Fremont, CA --
Tatung Science & Technology, Inc. (TSTI™), is introducing a new family of 64-bit rackmount servers featuring dual
AMD Opteron™ processors in a 1U (1.75 inch) rack mounted form factor. The new Tatung servers target high performance computer users, for applications in the life sciences, nanotechnology, Web-based and E-commerce servers, Internet game servers, and clustering environments. Two models, both 1U form factor systems, support up to two AMD Opteron processors, featuring 1M Byte of level 2 cache and an integrated memory controller. Supporting a variety of high performance peripheral device options, including Linux or Windows operating systems, the new Tatung servers allow seamless migration from 32 to 64-bit server technology and the ability to run both 32 and 64-bit applications simultaneously.
“Tatung’s new family of AMD Opteron-processor based servers offers compelling performance benefits to high performance computing customers, while conserving space and reducing power requirements in data centers,” said Ben Williams, director of the Server/Workstation Business Segment at AMD. “The new Tatung servers are designed to allow customers to get the most out of their 32-bit applications while ensuring seamless, predictable performance when moving applications to 64-bit platforms.”
Space-Saving Rack-Optimized IU Form Factor
The model TSS1881 and TSS1881S are both 1U systems, requiring the least amount of rackmount space without compromising performance or expandability of components. Each of these systems includes dual AMD Opteron processors with 1MB of level 2 cache and an integrated memory controller. Both models feature 411 watt power supplies and support for two 3.5 inch hard disk drives. The TSS1881 supports up to 16 GB of ECC DDR memory and two ATA drives; a Slim CD-ROM drive; two PCI expansion slots; and dual gigabit Ethernet. The TSS1881S features up to 16GB of ECC DDR memory and two hot swap Ultra 320 SCSI hard disk drives; a slim CD-ROM drive; dual gigabit Ethernet; two PCI expansion slots; and RAID support. Both systems offer optional IPMI 1.5 management modules. Both systems can support 32-bit and 64-bit applications running on Windows or Linux operating systems.
Servers Take Advantage of the AMD Opteron Processor’s Advanced Features
The AMD Opteron processor architecture provides enhancements that deliver world-class performance in single and dual processor applications, such as those employed in the Tatung servers. These features include an integrated memory controller and 1MB of L2 cache. Additionally, HyperTransport™ technology provides a scalable bandwidth interconnect between processors, I/O subsystems, and other chipsets. It supports up to three HyperTransport links, providing up to 19.2GB/ peak bandwidth per processor. The AMD Opteron processors also include 64-bit wide key data and address paths that incorporate a 48-bit virtual address space and a 40-bit physical address space, allowing end users to run their existing installed base of 32-bit applications and operating systems at peak performance, while providing a migration path that is 64-bit capable.
“This new processor allows Tatung to provide data center and other high performance computing users to realize a significant advancement in compatibility, performance, investment protection, and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO),” said Dr. Kam Chan, president of Tatung Science and Technology.
The Tatung TSS1881S starts at $2140 with a single AMD Opteron processor Model 240, 512Mbyte ECC memory and 36 GB SCSI hard drive; and the TSS1881 starts at $1920 with a single AMD Opteron processor Model 240, 512Myte ECC memory and 80GB ATA drive.
