New Samplify APAX Software Development Kit and APAX Profiler Analysis Tool Lower Costs for Big Science, HPC, Big Data, and Cloud Computing Applications
Samplify's APAX Technology Accelerates Applications, Lowers Data Upload and Storage Costs

CAMPBELL, Calif., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Samplify, the leading intellectual property company for accelerating memory, storage, and I/O bottlenecks in computing, consumer electronics and mobile devices, announced the availability of its APAX Software Development Kit (SDK) and Web-based Profiler analysis tool for high-performance computing (HPC), Big Science, Big Data,  and cloud computing applications.  HPC users and independent software developers can accelerate their applications, 3-8X, by linking the APAX SDK into their applications. The APAX Profiler analyzes the inherent accuracy in the user's data set and makes a recommendation of encoding rates to maximize the acceleration of their algorithm with no effect on results.

"Our APAX numerical encoding technology reduces the cost of every aspect of cloud computing by reducing data upload, storage and interprocessor communication bottlenecks by 75 percent," said Allan Evans, Samplify CEO.  "By making APAX available as an SDK, we now make cloud computing resources more accessible to companies, scientists, and academic researchers, and expand the capability of existing data centers."

"Astute HPC users recognize that their data sets originated somewhere on a sensor," said Al Wegener, CTO and founder of Samplify. "Without any means for analyzing inherent accuracy in the data they need to carry through their application, they 'play it safe' and carry all data through their algorithms in the floating point delivered to them.  This 'overcasting problem' creates the I/O, storage, and memory bottlenecks that have plagued HPC, Big Data, and cloud computing applications.  With the APAX Profiler tool, we have taken all of my knowledge and experience in analyzing data sets and put it onto the Web, providing HPC users and independent software developers with a recommendation of the encoding rate that maximizes the acceleration of their application with no effect on their results."

About APAX

The APAX technology is a universal numerical data encoder that operates on any integer or floating point data type and can achieve typical encoding rates of 3:1 to 8:1 without affecting the results of computing applications.  Samplify's APAX SDK is a software library which can be linked into any computing application to enable it to operate natively on APAX-encoded data in memory, on disk, or streaming across network interfaces.  The APAX SDK is optimized for SIMD execution on SSE/AVX Intel CPUs achieving a throughput of 200 MB/sec per core.  The API is fully compatible with the company's recently announced APAX hardware IP core for SoC and FPGA integration, enabling APAX-enabled applications to take advantage of future APAX-enabled hardware in the data center.

Samplify will be providing a live demo of the APAX Profiler and application acceleration benefits of APAX HW-enablement at the Supercomputing Conference in Salt Lake City, UT from November 12-15, 2012, in booth 4151.


The APAX Profiler is available at the company's website at and is free to use.  The APAX SDK is available immediately from Samplify's website at for an annual subscription for end users of $995 plus usage.  Data Center and ISV licensing models for the SDK are also available.  End users can also download APAX as a standalone executable, called APAX Explorer, for a free 30- day trial, and on an annual subscription basis for $495.

About Samplify:
Samplify is a Silicon Valley startup providing the only software and hardware numerical encoder for solving memory, I/O, and storage bottlenecks in HPC, Big Data, Big Science, cloud computing, consumer electronics and mobile devices.  Samplify is a privately-held company with funding from Charles River Ventures and Formative Ventures and strategic investors Schlumberger, Mamiya and IDT.
