  • Certified by Enterprise Software Partners: Linux Distribution (SUSE and RedHat), Cloud and Virtualization (Citrix, VMWare and Microsoft Azure)

AMAX is pleased to announce the StorMax® X-21-IG, a 1-phase immersion cooling ready 2U storage system with over 400 TB of raw capacity thanks to 24 x 3.5″ SAS/SATA hot-swappable HDD/SSD bays, to assist data centers in transitioning to a complete immersion cooling setting and benefiting from up to 50% energy bill savings.


The StorMax® X-21-IG provides an x86-based architecture that is compatible with a wide range of Software Defined Storage (SDS) solutions through a single 2nd Gen. Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor. Unlike traditional network-attached storage (NAS) or storage area network (SAN) systems, SDS is generally designed to perform on any industry-standard or x86 system, removing the software’s dependence on proprietary hardware.


This system has been certified for hyper-scale deployment by key enterprise software vendors, including Linux distribution (SUSE and RedHat), virtualization, and the cloud (Citrix, VMWare, and Microsoft Azure), allowing the end user to rapidly develop and validate joint solutions with speed, agility, and cost optimization.
