AMAX Updates StorMax NAS Series

Windows Storage Server 2012 is an advanced storage and file serving solution for any size company that provides new levels of performance and reliability on a proven and reliable server platform. To provide a platform for Network Attached Storage (NAS) appliances, it is built on the Windows Server 2012 operating system.

Recently, AMAX (News - Alert) updated its storage optimized StorMax NAS product line with Windows Storage Server 2012, the most advanced Windows-based storage OS. 

The AMAX StorMax NAS series with Windows Storage Server 2012 introduces a host of new features designed to provide high-performance and reliable storage for virtualization applications, and flexible, cost-effective options for shared storage.  New features of StorMax NAS with Windows Storage Server 2012 not present in Server 2008 R2 include thin provisioning; a feature that enhances storage utilization by maximizing existing storage and reclaiming any unused space.

By using sub-file, variable-size chunking and compression to segment files into smaller chunks, it also works at the volume level and stores more data in less physical space, the company stated in a statement.

“As part of a network-attached storage appliance, Windows Storage Server 2012 helps to reduce the storage costs associated with building modern datacenters and private clouds by enhancing traditional file serving capabilities and leveraging robust, industry standard hardware," said James Huang, Product Marketing Manager, AMAX. "AMAX's enterprise-class NAS solutions based on Windows Storage Server 2012 are perfect for those looking to deploy highly reliable, high-performance shared storage for database needs.”

Recently, the company announced that it will be displaying the industry's newest innovations surrounding big data, the private cloud, and virtual desktop infrastructures (VDI) at an event.
