This week AMAX unveiled the ClusterMax Stor-X, a new high capacity, petabyte-scale NAS storage platform. Designed for data intensive oil and gas deployments, Stor-X uses the latest InfiniBand QDR technology and a parallel file system to achieve extremely high data throughput.

AMAX’s advanced storage solution was designed to work with large-scale HPC cluster deployments and state-of-the-art supercomputer systems that require unique storage configurations to support the massive data sets typical of scientific research. With the ClusterMax Stor-X petabyte-scale storage platform, AMAX is now capable of deploying large-scale HPC clusters running up to thousands of cores while supporting up to 720TB of hot-swap storage capacity per 42U rack space to store, process and accelerate the huge amount of raw data collected in today’s oil & gas applications.

With recent GPU deployments at Tongji University and China University of Petroleum, AMAX is no stranger to the Oil&Gas market. The company plans to demonstrate its latest ClusterMax platforms this week at SEG in Denver, Colorado.
