AMAX has announced support for the latest Microsoft OS for its embedded appliances and various server and workstation platforms. According to the company, Windows 8 delivers a more targeted, connected, feature-rich, business-ready and secure Windows computing experience than ever before and is built with the cloud in mind.

AMAX's embedded appliances, with x86 and x64 support and Windows 8 for Embedded Systems, will enable differentiated devices with the full power and familiarity of Windows 8 and extend business intelligence across the entire computing ecosystem. AMAX engineers embedded appliances that achieve extended life cycles, compact space-saving designs, are fan-less and offer low-power consumption. AMAX embedded appliances with Windows 8 for Embedded Systems have been optimised for POS, kiosk, industrial embedded systems, as well as transaction terminals and will be available in 1Q13.

AMAX's ServMax server and workstation platforms also benefit from Windows 8's cloud connected vision. Windows 8 enables multiple servers, workstations, desktop PCs and mobile devices to access a unified SkyDrive to smoothly retrieve documents and files. Personalized settings and applications are also saved across multiple devices when running Windows 8.

As more and more data is moved into the cloud, AMAX's StorMax storage optimised platforms become the ideal solutions for massive, high-speed storage and integrate the latest SAS2 hardware RAID controllers, enterprise-level SAS/SATA HDDs and SSDs, along with encryption, data de-duplication and robust end-to-end data protection features. StorMax servers are available in 2U to 4U+ form factors with capacities up to 240TB in a single enclosure.

As with all AMAX embedded appliances, ServMax and StorMax servers, platforms are fully customisable for each unique deployment and designed to suit specific project requirements, from performance and budget, to scalability and power target.
