FREMONT, Calif., May 14 -- 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 computing solutions built upon the new Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v2 product family. This powerful new platform takes full advantage of Intel's new 22nm 3-D transistor technology, which consumes only half the power at the same performance level as 2-D transistors on 32nm process technology, and ushers in a new era of intelligent performance that dramatically increases performance and drives unparalleled power efficiency in datacenter and cloud computing environments.
The new solutions will enable ISVs to package a powerful, highly-efficient and affordable OEM solution together with worldwide certifications and cutting edge software, while also empowering enterprises to radically reduce datacenter rack space, power, cooling and operational management costs, all while continuing to push the performance-per-watt envelope. AMAX's server solutions address these demands and tap into the power of the new Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v2 product family and platforms to deliver a rich mix of never-before-seen performance, efficiency and advanced process technology.
"The new Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v2 product family are the first server processors to take advantage of 22nm manufacturing technology using 3-D Tri-Gate transistors to deliver an unprecedented combination of power savings and performance gains for entry-level servers, workstations and the emerging micro server market," said Dylan Larson, Xeon Platform Marketing Director in the Datacenter and Connected Solutions Division at Intel. "AMAX has used these innovations to develop new solutions to offer improved energy-efficient performance and faster access for their customers."
The latest AMAX servers designed around the Intel Xeon® processor E3-1200 v2 product family include:
"The Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v2 product family offers incredible performance, energy efficiency, and robust security capabilities that are an essential part of AMAX's solid OEM solution platforms," said James Huang, Product Marketing Manager, AMAX. "As a 2012 Intel Technology Provider Platinum partner, AMAX's balanced portfolio of total turnkey appliances gives ISVs a competitive market edge with proven performance and an extended product lifecycle."
AMAX's Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v2 product family-based server solutions and OEM appliances are available immediately. For more information on AMAX products and services, please visit: http://www.amax.com.

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.
