AMAX Platforms Upgraded with Xeon Scalable Processors
FREMONT, Calif., July 11, 2017 -- AMAX, a leading provider of Cloud/IaaS, AI/Deep Learning, Enterprise Computing Infrastructure Solutions, announced its diverse product lines, including Deep Learning solutions and the world's first elastic on premises deep learning cloud platform, MATRIX, are optimized for the latest Intel Xeon Scalable Processors.
The new Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs feature up to 28 cores and 56 processing threads, supports 6 DDR4 memory channels, and utilizes an enhanced memory subsystem and innovative low latency core interconnects for fast access to memory and I/O. It is designed for a wide range of workload and compute intensive tasks, combining a rich feature set based on innovative technology resulting in compelling benefits across a broad variety of usage models. Applications for AMAX Computing Solutions fueled by the Intel Xeon Scalable platform includes HPC, Datacenter, Security Appliances, Hybrid Cloud, Storage, Networking, and IoT for more actionable insights and applications from the Edge to Cloud. In particular, this highly-anticipated family of CPUs present major benefits to Deep Learning inference and training.
"We are excited to offer our customers AMAX's Matrix Deep Learning Solutions equipped with the latest generation of Intel CPUs," said Rene Meyer, VP of Technology, AMAX. "The Intel Xeon Scalable platform removes several limitations of the previous generation when running Deep Learning applications, in particular fast CPU-CPU bandwidth, enhanced PCIe resource and higher core count options, and new instruction set accelerators like Intel AVX-512, and support for Intel FPGAs or GPUs when even more intense workloads or specialized network or storage applications more dedicated acceleration. This is more than just an incremental improvement. This takes the compute foundation to a whole new level."
"The new Intel Xeon Scalable Processors are an extraordinarily versatile foundation for data center applications ranging from cloud infrastructure to next-generation networking to artificial intelligence," said Jennifer Huffstetler, Senior Director, Datacenter Product Management and Storage, Intel Corporation. "These amazing platforms will help enterprises quickly gain insight from their data, and we're pleased to work with AMAX to bring cloud-based AI solutions to their customers."
