FREMONT, Calif,. May 7 — AMAX, a leading innovator of Dynamic Enterprise IT & High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions, today announced that it is showcasing its latest innovations in the Data Center, Open Compute Project (OCP) and Big Data spaces with its ServMax and ClusterMax turnkey computing solutions at the 2013 Interop IT Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, May 7-9.
Featuring the latest in data center micro-server technology is the ServMax X-41801, a 4U micro-server, uni-processor chassis with 18 independent compute nodes, each powered by the 22nm, 3rd generation Intel Xeon E3-1200v2 series processors. Featuring up to 4 processor cores per sled node, with two fixed 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s drives, along with up to 32GB of high-speed 1600Mhz DDR3, and 1600W 80+ Platinum power supplies in a 2+1 redundant configuration, the ServMax™ X-41801 has been optimized specifically for cloud computing entry-points, dedicated hosting, front-end web, and content delivery.
AMAX recently announced its entry into the OCP Foundation as an official solutions provider and will be featuring compute & storage solutions based on OCP technology. AMAX's ServMax™ OCP solutions will leverage the latest open compute design concepts to improve server and storage cost effectiveness, ease of maintenance and are designed from the ground up to maximize overall data center efficiency. They combine an innovative form factor with leading-edge power efficiency that is designed for even the largest scale-out data center applications.
The ServMax Xr-12312 solution greatly expands compute and storage capacities beyond AMAX's existing server platforms to achieve increased performance with lower power consumption. With support for up to 48TB of internal storage from 12x 3.5" SAS/SATA drives and dual Intel Xeon 35-2600 series processors, the ServMax Xr-12312 has been optimized specifically for Big Data, Hadoop storage, and cloud backup.
The ClusterMax series of configurable clusters offer organizations unlimited Enterprise & HPC cluster configuration options and virtualization capabilities optimized for any and every application. AMAX has designed a range of clusters engineered for CPU-intensive jobs, GPU-accelerated applications, and multi-petabyte-scale storage deployments.
AMAX is showcasing ServMax X-41801, ServMax OCP, ServMax Xr-12312, and ClusterMax at the 2013 Interop IT Conference & Expo (booth #2066), held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, May 7-9. AMAX provides a wide-range of dynamic solutions optimized for data center, OCP and Big Data markets that are available immediately.
