For Immediate Release

AMAX Introduces Multi-Petabyte NAS Storage Solution for Rich Media Applications and Content Sharing Platforms

New StorMax-X1 Delivers Performance Scalability, Extreme Density and High Throughput with Robust Management Features

Fremont, CA ¨C December 14, 2010. AMAX, a leading HPC and storage solutions innovator, today announced the availability of the new StorMax-X1 scalable NAS storage solution. The StorMax-X1 is ideal for multi-petabyte rich media and content sharing platforms that integrate the latest computing technologies requiring performance scalability, extreme density and high throughput computing with robust storage-management features.

StorMax-X1¡¯s efficient design provides a petabyte of raw capacity in a single, floor-tile sized footprint, and is capable of additional capacity without disruption to create massive storage pools. The NAS storage solution delivers true linear scalability, scaling to hundreds of petabytes by adding new nodes with just a few mouse clicks. By utilizing an extremely high-density JBOD storage, the StorMax-X1 is expandable up to 516 hot-swappable 3.5¡± SATA or SAS HDD/SSD drives per 42U standard rack cabinet. It offers customers performance scalability, flexibility and maximum efficiency at a large-scale for applications from in-memory databases to a diverse set of data and petabyte-scale storage-intensive HPC applications.

¡°The StorMax-X1 was developed in cooperation with our datacenter customers that required robust storage management, better resource utilization and centralized data protection,¡± said Winston Tang, Product Development Manager for AMAX. ¡°StorMax-X1 is a multi-petabyte capacity solution for managing massive amounts of data driven by rich media and social digital content demanded by content sharing platforms such as YouTube and Facebook.¡±
