London, UK - October 4th, 2015 - Boston Limited, now in its 22nd year as distribution partner for Super Micro Computer (NASDAQ: SMCI), will be attending IP Expo in London, UK, from October 7th-8th. At this year's event Boston will be presenting a range of leading-edge converged platforms showcasing technology from Supermicro® and Atlantis Computing®, as well as Helium based technologies from HGST®. For more information please visit Boston on Stand #H18.
Atlantis HyperScale is the latest hyper-converged platform in the Boston range. Integrating servers, storage, networking and virtualisation into a single appliance, the HyperScale can be deployed in as little as 60 minutes. Capable of hosting 600 persistent desktops per appliance, the HyperScale also equips you with enough all-flash storage to ensure your desktops perform better than PCs with SSDs. Featuring Supermicro's 2U TwinPro system with 96 processor cores (Intel Xeon E5-2680 v3) and up to 2TB of DDR-4 memory, the HyperScale is ready for the most demanding virtualised workloads. It also has the storage capacity and performance to rival competitors with twice the price tag; delivering a guaranteed 12TB or 24TB all SSD storage backend, delivered at an affordable price tag through Atlantis' advanced duplication later.
Boston are also offering a sneak preview of their upcoming Virtual Cloud Gaming platform. Hinging on cloud based technologies, Boston are working to provide cloud gaming as a service to partners in the New Year. They are also looking for resellers and partners to enable the opportunity to host gaming services of their own. As the gaming industry looks to move away from expensive capex consoles for entertainment delivery and towards the recurring apex of cloud streaming as an alternative, Boston are positioned to compete in this exciting market. Eager game testers can put the service through its paces and try the latest game titles on Boston's stand alongside a retro Atari. Visit stand H18 to take part in a competition where the highest games scorer will win themselves a brand new Apple Watch.
Mr Manoj Nayee, Managing Director of Boston Limited, says “Boston is delighted to unveil our latest Cloud based solutions at this year's IP Expo, designed to provide production-ready, scale-out performance and capacity to those seeking the simplicity of hyper-convergence.”
