ScaleMP today announced the availability of its vSMP Foundation Standalone software on the Dell PowerEdge server platforms. The vSMP Foundation Standalone software aggregates multiple x86 and cluster-based systems into a single virtual shared memory system, reducing overall system management complexity while providing “maximum processing and memory capabilities”.
The Dell PowerEdge blade servers running the vSMP Foundation Standalone software allows customers to create single, virtual Symmetrical Multiprocessor (SMP) systems with up to 32 sockets (128 cores) and up to 1 TB of shared memory. According to the company, High Performance Computing (HPC) users can achieve additional cost effectiveness with entry-level solutions using two Dell PowerEdge 1950 III servers and vSMP Foundation Standalone software, in order to create a high-performance virtual four-socket system.
ScaleMP’s vSMP Foundation Standalone aggregation platform provides its customers with:
- Up to 1 TB of shared memory for large memory requirements
- Up to 128 cores virtual SMP, with high memory bandwidth
- Ease of use and lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for applications, with simplified cluster and I/O architecture management
- Improved utilization through a centralized and consolidated architecture
