"AMAX has the capability and capacity to meet all of our specific hardware requirements. In working with AMAX, VMware saves cost without sacrificing quality."|
- Vinh Le, Hardware Deployment Manager, VMware
|Windows Storage Server 2012 Storage Appliance|
- High-density, feature rich Petabyte scalable NAS storage appliance designed for massively scalable storage in a single chassis.
- Delivers best economics for shared storage -- Significantly reduces the cost of storage by offering the same resilience and performance of Fibre Channel SAN and other proprietary, high-cost storage solutions on industry standard hardware with file based storage.
- Provides file storage for virtualization & apps -- Manage storage for Virtualization(Hyper-V), Databases (SQL) and Web Servers (IIS) in the same manner as they manage storage for traditional file serving.
- Private cloud & datacenter ready -- Capabilities such as reliability, continuous availability and scale traditionally seen only in datacenter deployments due to their high value is now available to customers of all sizes.
- Fully utilizes the power of dual Intel® 32nm Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 series.
- Supports Trusted Execution, Advanced Encryption Security - New Instructions (AESNI), Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, Intel® Virtualization, Intel® QuickPath Interconnect, Advanced Vector Extension (AVX) Instructions.
- Delivers new storage capabilities, simplified deployment and easier management while assuring seamless synergy in customers' Windows infrastructure in a cost-effective and high-performance platform.
- Ideal for a variety of applications, including disk-based backup and restore, storage consolidation, and disaster recovery
