TYAN, an industry-leading server platform manufacturer, and a subsidiary of MiTAC International Corp., announces new single-socket servers that support the Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 series (codename: Sandy Bridge). The S5510 and S5512 motherboards are ideal as entry-level servers for both small business and enterprise server customers. For high-density datacenter applications such as web hosting, TYAN has launched the industry-leading FM65-B5511 Micro Server.

The FM65-B5511 supports up to 18 Intel Xeon processors in a 4U enclosure. The FM65-B5511 is based on the Micro Module Server Specification, which addresses the emerging server segment that features scale-out, single-processor nodes with higher density and lower power consumption for web services applications.

“TYAN now provides a great selection of single-processor server solutions with outstanding price/performance,” said TYAN Director of Product Marketing, Kevin Hart. “The TYAN S5510 and S5512 motherboards provide higher performance and lower power consumption, as compared to the previous generation, at about the same cost.”

The S5510 series is based on the Micro ATX form factor, and is available in two versions. The S5510GM3NR is a full-featured server platform based on Intel C204 chipset and features four PCI-E 2.0 x8 slots, six SATA ports with two at 6 Gb/s, three 1 G-bit network ports, and IPMI 2.0 support for out-of-band and remote management. The cost-effective S5510G2NR-LE is based on the Intel C202 chipset and features three PCI-E 2.0 x8 slots, six SATA ports at 3 Gb/s, and two 1 G-bit network ports.

The S5512 series is based on the ATX form factor and is available in four versions for rack-optimized server and small business applications. The S5512GM2NR is based on Intel C204 chipset and features five PCI-E 2.0 slots, six SATA ports with two at 6 Gb/s, two Intel 82574L Ethernet controllers, and a dedicated management port with IPMI 2.0 support.

The S5512WGM2NR provides the same features, and supports up to eight SAS ports via an integrated LSI 2008 SAS controller. The S5512GM4NR features four 1 G-bit network ports, as well as a dedicated management port, for a total of five network ports. A lower cost version is available, the S5512G2NR-LE, which features the Intel C202 chipset, four PCI-E 2.0 slots, six SATA ports at 3 Gb/s, and two 1 G-bit network ports.
