Greater Performance and Increased Efficiency Bolster Proven AMAX x86-Based OEM Appliances

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 12, 2012) - AMAX, a leading innovator of High Performance Computing (HPC), dynamic Enterprise IT, and custom Appliance Manufacturing solutions, today announced the immediate release of its latest, most advanced CPU-based x86 OEM appliance solutions built upon the latest Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 product family (formerly named "Sandy Bridge"). The powerful new OEM platform takes full advantage of Intel®'s latest advancements in processor and chipset technology, and ushers in a new era of intelligent performance that dramatically increases performance and drives unparalleled power efficiency for x86 appliance-based solutions.

The new appliance solutions will give a revenue boost to ISVs, networking, security, storage, cloud computing, and database application developers by packaging complete turnkey solutions using custom-designed, highly-optimized OEM solutions that are fully validated with each company's specific applications. All solutions are designed specifically to optimize the performance and stability of the total solution, and manufactured to the highest-quality standards including worldwide certifications and AMAX's proprietary 5-Stage Quality Gate, which is directly responsible for industry-leading low field failure rates. These solutions allow companies to reduce deployment complexity, system downtime and customer-support issues by providing validated, software-certified platforms, and increase potential revenue with total-solution value-add while pushing the performance-per-watt envelope allowing application performance to truly shine.

By further tapping into the power of the new Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 product family, platforms and the underlying technology, AMAX's x86 appliances receive a further boost from features such as standard support for PCIe 3.0 which significantly improves I/O bandwidth, Quad-Channel DDR3 1600Mhz memory support for faster system I/O communication, Intel® Advanced Encryption Standards New Instructions (AES-NI) which boosts encryption performance, and Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) which provides hardware-based resistance to software attacks.

"Working together AMAX and Intel have successfully delivered innovations for the appliance market based on Intel Architecture. We're pleased to continue our work together to bring the new technologies to support ISV's and application-solution providers with powerful total turnkey solutions," said Dylan Larson, Director of Xeon Product Marketing at Intel.
