KALEAO introduces new version of its flagship KMAX

KALEAO announced the introduction of KMAX-EP, the newest version of KALEAO’s flagship solution for the server infrastructure market. 

KMAX-EP supposedly builds on the scalability and cost benefits of KALEAO’s initial KMAX offering, now known as KMAX-HD, which is optimized for hyperscale deployment. 

KMAX-EP offers the total cost of ownership advantages of a hyperconverged solution further enabling the digital transformation of enterprise markets.

Designed specifically to meet the needs of enterprise infrastructure, KMAX-EP’s fully integrated 4U chassis, power supply options, and pure, single-sided access further enables key applications for IT leaders.

KALEAO’s KMAX product line moves hyperconverged infrastructure a step further, to what it calls “true converged,” delivering a consolidated software-defined platform integrating computing and storage and now with integrated networking to be deployed one chassis at a time. 

The KMAX-EP and KMAX-HD products deliver up to 10 times the compute density of other hyperconverged offerings while consuming a quarter of the power due to KMAX’s optimized scale-out architecture. KMAX also benefits from the use of low-power ARM 64-bit processors.

KALEAO co-founder Greg Nicoloso says, “It is an exciting time at KALEAO as we’ve begun to expand our technology offerings based on customer feedback and market demand. 

“Our KMAX-EP is the next logical step in bringing true converged infrastructure to more global organizations.”

“We’re pleased to announce the latest addition to our portfolio, KMAX-EP, today as we look forward to releasing additional offerings and configurations.”

All KMAX products are available in a Server Edition to deliver a managed bare metal environment, and an Appliance Edition, delivering out of the box services. 

Initial Appliance versions include the OnApp Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) Platform for software-defined infrastructure as a service (IaaS) with centralized system management, for multi-tenant OS and Docker-based applications deployment. 

Additional appliance editions are in development.
