BOXX FLEXX Data Center Platform

While we’ve touched on BOXX in the past, we’ve never covered them directly. The company is a bit more niche or specific than most vendors we cover at StorageReview. Originally founded as Digital Emulsion, Inc. in Phoenix, AZ back in 1996, the company relocated to Austin, TX two years later and became BOXX. The company focuses on high-performance computer workstations, rendering systems, and servers for engineering, product design, architecture, visual effects, animation, deep learning.

Designed for very high performance, BOXX FLEXX Data Center Platform supports the compute nodes for the highest application performance for engineers, architects, designers, artists, and other professional content creators who are working on site or remotely. The compute nodes also include NVIDIA Quadro Virtual Workstation nodes. The companies state that through this combination, remote users can see performance that was previously only available only in desk side workstations. The platform is stated as being able to provision Quadro Virtual Workstations in minutes.

The BOXX FLEXX Data Center Platform is available in various sizes in nodes measured as VUs (vertical units). The FLEXX chassis supports up to ten 1VU nodes or five 2VU nodes. The nodes can be mixed based off of needs and changed around without disrupting neighboring nodes. A FLEXX chassis is 5U and comes with redundant power supplies.

Aside from the BOXX FLEXX Data Center Platform, the company also announced the RAXX P6G Jupiter and the APEXX W4L ProViz workstation. The RAXX P6G Jupiter holds up to 16 NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000 GPUs and is ideal for deep learning development, rendering, simulation, and other GPU-centric workflows. The APEXX W4L ProViz workstation is another device that is NVIDIA GPU heavy, housing four NVIDIA Quadro RTX GPUs. On top of the GPUs the workstation has a 28-core (56 thread) Intel Xeon W-3275 processor and 128GB of memory. The superpowered workstation is ideal for computer graphics applications like 3ds Max, Maya, and Maxon Cinema 4D, as well as rendering engines like Arnold, V-Ray, and Redshift.
