Towards the end of 2011, you may recall that AMAX took one giant step into the Big Data market by engineering & manufacturing a complete turnkey Big Data platform, bundled with Apache Hadoop, to answer the call of the growing market demand in the research, development and integration of large scale distributed clusters for big data processing & analysis.  But Big Data isn’t just a buzz word – it represents an enormous challenge and an even greater opportunity!  Understanding the importance of harnessing big data, the Obama Administration has announced the Big Data Research and Development Initiative, aimed at improving our ability to extract knowledge and insights from large and complex collections of digital data[1]!

AMAX’s PHAT-Data (Peta-Scale Hadoop Analytics Technology) was the result of immeasurable amounts of time and research into selecting the best components and tuning to maximize performance & efficiency of a Hadoop cluster.  The launch and introduction of PHAT-Data at popular tradeshows such as Interop & SuperComputing created an incredible amount of buzz throughout the industry and garnered significant interest from large enterprises and federal government agencies nationwide.  In fact, PHAT-Data was recognized as Best New Product of the Year in Computer Hardware in 2012[2]!

But technology never stands still.  Since 2011, PHAT-Data has further evolved with the release of PHAT-Data v2.0 and the implementation of the Intel® Distribution for Apache Hadoop Software.  The PHAT-Data platform sports real-time big data processing and analytics, contains the core components of the Hadoop framework, and now simplifies the deployment of Hadoop clusters with integrated wizards and automated optimization tools, and secures data with multi-level access controls and Kerberos data encryption[3]AMAX is one of the select few of Intel’s exclusive partners to offer this unique solution.  Be sure to check out the PHAT-Data v2.0 press release and our newly redesigned PHAT-Data v2.0 page!

Almost a week away until SC11, one of the largest international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, will open for anticipating attendees to enter and explore the technical programming sessions and the exhibitor hall bringing out the latest and greatest in HPC. 

AMAX will be exhibiting at booth # 915 on Nov. 14th – Nov. 17th and rolling out our latest solutions in HPC and GPU Computing.  Some of the systems we will be showcasing includes: a flexible 41U HPC cluster solution ideal for various environments such as running Hadoop (an open-source software for data-intensive applications) or as a GPU cluster, the ClusterMax Mobile designed for smaller workgroups running HPC applications, and a sneak peak at future HPC technologies, including the next generation of the Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron based server platforms.

We will also be handing out free prizes, daily cash giveaways and USB flash drives which will include datasheets of all of our solutions we’re presenting  at this exhibit, so be sure to check us out!
