AMAX's CloudMax Converged Cloud Infrastructure Solution Wins Best of VMworld 2014 Award for Private Cloud Technology

CloudMax(TM) Is a Turnkey Cloud Solution Supporting Multiple Hypervisors Based on Facebook-Inspired Open Compute Infrastructure and OpenStack Software

FREMONT, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/28/14 -- VMworld 2014 has announced that AMAX is the Gold winner of the prestigious Best of VMworld 2014 Award in the category of Private Cloud Computing Technologies, beating out finalists Red Hat and Red Hat CloudForms 3.1.

AMAX, a leading provider of cloud/IaaS, Big Data, and HPC platforms, developed the CloudMax™ Converged Cloud Infrastructure platform to be a turnkey private cloud solution featuring Facebook-inspired Open Compute (OCP) hardware seamlessly integrated with the CloudMax™ OpenStack software suite. The software features a centralized management GUI for automated machine discovery, allocation, configuration, provisioning and total management of the OpenStack cloud environment, as well as multi-hypervisor integration and support, including for VMware's vSphere ESXi. SDN support capabilities are also available for a total software-defined private cloud solution.

CloudMax™ can also be deployed as a cloud platform compatible with cloud operating systems outside of the CloudMax™ software. For customers who are using VMware's vSphere and are looking for a more cost-effective way to scale their infrastructure, CloudMax's hardware platform is also validated with vSphere and can be deployed as a vSphere platform with vSphere loaded in place of the CloudMax software, giving customers the ultimate flexibility in how they want to deploy and scale their cloud.

CloudMax™ had previously won Intel's Server Innovation Award for Best Data Center Product; the Best of VMworld 2014 win marks the product's second award this year.

"We saw a need in the market for a total converged solution built specifically for private cloud infrastructure, and we designed CloudMax™ to be a product that addressed the needs and pain points of today's market as a solution that makes the most sense," said Jean Shih, President, AMAX. "CloudMax™ is a product that is both compatible VMware vSphere, or can be built using the most efficient open hardware and software components to optimize cost and flexibility, delivered fully integrated and ready to run applications within days. It's a complete private cloud solution."

"We are extremely happy that AMAX's CloudMax™ solution has won Best of VMworld," said Cole Crawford, Executive Director, Open Compute Foundation. "This win should further validate the fact that Open Compute is not just a platform for innovation but a de facto OEM alternative, ready for enterprise adoption."

AMAX has been showcasing the CloudMax™ Converged Cloud Infrastructure Solution at Booth #318 at VMworld 2014, held August 24-27th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. For more information on CloudMax™ or the OCP hardware platform, please contact us for more information.
