Featuring the NVIDIA Tesla 20-Series technology
FREMONT, Calif., April 5 -- AMAX, a leading ODM manufacturer of appliance platforms, GPU solutions, and custom server and storage in North America, delivers a new generation of supercomputing workstation and datacenter solutions powered by the revolutionary NVIDIA Tesla 20-series GPU, enabling engineers, scientists, and researchers to solve the world's most important computing challenges -- more quickly and accurately.
AMAX's latest Tesla 20-series based solutions are integrated with the massively parallel CUDA GPU computing architecture, and deliver performance equivalent to a CPU-only system at 1/20th the power consumption and 1/10th the cost. These new computing platforms include:
AMAX's Tesla 20-series based solutions feature many "must have" HPC capabilities, including:
"AMAX is proud to be working closely with technology partners such as NVIDIA to deliver best-in-class, high performance NVIDIA Tesla cluster solutions that address customers' most demanding HPC applications and I/O requirements," said Jean Shih, president of AMAX. "Our Tesla platforms represent one of the most significant product innovations of the high-performance computing industry."
Founded in 1979, AMAX is a trusted leader in custom server and storage solutions. Headquartered in Fremont, Calif., AMAX also has branch offices in several North America locations and China. AMAX's Appliance Manufacturing Division provides efficient and top-of-the-line manufacturing solutions and global logistics to OEM customers; and AMAX's Corporate Solutions Division provides innovative and scalable custom server, workstation, server, and cluster products.

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.
