FREMONT, Calif., Oct. 28 -- AMAX, the number one server and storage system builder in North America, launches a dedicated, high performance Personal Supercomputer (PSC). AMAX's ServMax PSC solution transforms a workstation into a cluster, with support for up to 960 processing cores and 4 teraflops in a single workstation.
AMAX's ServMax PSC is a cluster in a box. It is optimized for scientific computing, delivering up to15x cost savings and 15x lower power than traditional 1U rack-optimized servers. They are ideal for life sciences, geosciences, engineering & sciences, molecular biology, medical diagnostics, electronic design automation (EDA), government and defense, visualization, financial modeling, and oil & gas applications.
In addition, the AMAX ServMax PSC delivers the massive processing computing power previously available only from supercomputers to scientists, engineers and other technical professionals, enabling timely discoveries that transform billions of lives every day. It enables the necessary transition to energy efficient parallel computing power, with simplified application development. It also enables universities, research institutions, and companies in these and other fields to complete exponentially complex simulation models much quicker than before.
Additional features of AMAX's ServMax PSC solutions include:
"AMAX is proud to be working closely with technology partners such as NVIDIA to deliver best-in-class, high performance personal supercomputing solutions that address customers' most demanding HPC application and I/O requirements," said Jean Shih, president of AMAX. "Our ServMax PSC platform dramatically reduces computational times from weeks and months to hours and minutes. It represents one of the most significant product innovation in the high-performance computing industry."

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
