CUPERTINO, Calif. -- ScaleMP, a leading provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing, today announced the availability and support of its vSMP Foundation Standalone software on the Dell PowerEdge™ server platforms. ScaleMP customers can now take advantage of ScaleMP’s powerful and cost-effective aggregation solutions using Dell’s 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 in an energy-efficient, dense packaging. In addition to power and density, 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 ability to aggregate multiple platforms into a single virtual system provides customers with a unified, systemic approach to compute- and memory-intensive workloads, deriving the benefits of both clustered and SMP environments, in a tightly integrated solution,” said Tim Carroll, Dell’s HPC business development manager. “Our ability to deliver modular, easy-to-manage systems in tightly integrated packaging also addresses growing customer challenges such as space limitations and power consumption while maintaining up to 70 percent price/performance advantages delivered through blade-based architectures,” added Carroll. “In addition to the sheer performance advantages of these architectures, customers can also realize a decrease in their total power consumption, by as much as 25 percent, because you now have a solution specifically designed to reduce the overall power-draw.”
