AMAX Releases New Generation OEM Platform Solutions for Appliance-Based Software Deployments

FREMONT, CA., March 21, 2011 -- AMAX, a leading provider of OEM appliance manufacturing and computing solutions, today announced the AMAX AH-1102 and AH-1103 1U uniprocessor appliance solutions based on the exceptional performance capabilities of AMD's (NYSE: AMD) latest multi-core processing technology to scale with increasing workloads. The new purpose-built systems round out the portfolio of AMAX OEM appliance platforms, providing ISVs and networking, security, storage, cloud computing, and database application developers a variable range of turnkey solutions with greater performance and power efficiency.

The AH-1102 platform is designed from the ground up to handle the most demanding server workloads utilizing the lowest power consumption. The new system is equipped with a single AMD Opteron™ 4100 Series processor featuring 6-cores and dual channel DDR3 memory. The AH-1102 provides the best value platform and is the lowest power-per-core short depth appliance on the market, saving as much as 40% energy and is ideal for compact, high-density deployments. The AH-1103 platform harnesses the high-performance capacity of the 12-core AMD Opteron 6100 Series processor to tackle larger, increasingly complex and multi-threaded environments such as virtualization, database, and web serving. The AH-1103 delivers the best performance-per-core-per-watt platform and features quad channel DDR3 memory and up to 12 DIMMs per CPU for the highest available memory bandwidth.

"The AMAX and AMD alliance has been incredibly successful in the x86 appliance market and we're pleased to expand that relationship with the new AMAX AH-1102 and AH-1103 uniprocessor platforms," said John Fruehe, director of Product Marketing for Embedded and Firestream products at AMD. "AMD has set new records in terms of performance-per-watt and stability of architectures in the server market. Joining AMD's strength in the processor market with AMAX's systems and storage engineering expertise ultimately delivers incredible solutions with compelling price and performance, scalability and ease of use, all built on a high-performance, industry-standard chip architecture."

"AMAX adds tremendous value by emphasizing on build consistency and extended life cycles to provide a complete turnkey OEM solution," said Matt Thauberger, Senior Technical Sales Manager at AMAX. "Our new AH-1102 and AH-1103 1U AMD-based UP platforms deliver a plethora of enhanced configuration and power efficiency options that enable our appliances to be ready to deploy and simple to maintain in any customer environment."

Every AMAX appliance is customizable and designed to suit your exact project requirements, from performance and budget, to unique bezels and custom chassis color options. With the ultimate ease of deployment in mind, all systems are shipped fully assembled and ready to plug and play. For more information on AMAX, visit:
