Delivering HPC performance at a smaller footprint, lower cost and energy consumption
FREMONT, Calif., May 5 -- AMAX, a leading ODM manufacturer of appliance platforms, GPU solutions, and custom server and storage in North America, delivers a new generation of GPU servers featuring up to eight NVIDIA Tesla GPUs. The ServMax Xn-4101G supports up to 12 CPU cores and 1,920 GPU cores with nearly 8 teraflops of parallel computing performance in a single 4U chassis, enabling engineers, scientists, and researchers to solve the world's most important computing challenges -- more quickly and accurately.
Fully certified to operate on the massively parallel CUDA GPU computing architecture, AMAX's latest ServMax Xn-4101G solution delivers performance equivalent to a CPU-only system at 1/20th the power consumption, 1/10th the cost, and up to 250x the performance.
The ServMax Xn-4101G delivers a quantum leap in performance for applications such as life sciences, geosciences, engineering & sciences, molecular biology, medical diagnostics, electronic design automation (EDA), government and defense, visualization, financial modeling, and oil & gas.
"AMAX has consistently been first to market with game changing computing technologies that deliver best-in-class, high performance supercomputing solutions to meet our customers' most demanding HPC applications and I/O requirements," said James Huang, product marketing manager of AMAX. "Our ServMax Xn-4101G platform dramatically improves the processing of large and complex compute-intensive workloads, shortens design and development cycles, and drives new levels of innovation and productivity."
Additional features of AMAX's ServMax Xn-4101G include:

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 Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

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.
