ScaleMP Announces Channel Partner Program

Channel Partners to Take Advantage of Leading-Edge Virtualization Solution for High-End Computing

 

Cupertino, Calif. – May 7, 2008 – ScaleMP, a provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing, today announced details of its channel partner program.  The program, designed to assist channel partners in providing unique server solutions for their customers’ high-end computing needs, offers resellers and system integrators the necessary tools to bring the recently launched ScaleMP vSMP Foundation™ Standalone to their customer base.  vSMP Foundation Standalone is based on the Versatile SMP™ (vSMP) architecture, which aggregates two dual-socket industry-standard x86 servers into a powerful four-socket shared memory system.

“ScaleMP sells exclusively through channels, and we are committing significant resources to this rewarding program to support our partners in expanding their presence in the market,” said Shai Fultheim, founder and CEO of ScaleMP.  “Customers interested in High-Performance Computing solutions look for value when making their choices, including the right cost, higher scalability and ease of use.  With ScaleMP, higher performance does not come with a high price, and we are now able to make leading-edge technology accessible to our customer base at a price that allows them to scale as their needs grow, and without having to replace their existing investments.  This is a great solution for the channel, allowing our partners to increase their profit margins while keeping their customers’ costs lower than with traditional four-socket solutions.”

The ScaleMP partner program includes important elements such as:

  • Joint marketing and selling with the ScaleMP channel team; this includes joint PR, collateral, webinars, and lead-generation programs
  • Technical pre-sales support, including resources from the ScaleMP benchmarking lab
  • 24X7 access to the ScaleMP password-protected Partner Portal, which includes partner-specific marketing and sales collateral
  • Ongoing web-based and onsite sales training, including in-depth technical sessions
  • Periodic product and technology roadmap updates

Among the tangible benefits that resellers can pass on to the customers who are using the vSMP Foundation Standalone are: 25% power consumption savings, 50% rack-space savings and more than 70% price performance advantage over traditional x86 four-socket solutions.

vSMP Foundation Standalone uses two quad- or dual-core dual-socket Intel® Xeon® processor-based systems connected through InfiniBand to create a four-socket platform for under $10,000.  vSMP Foundation Standalone provides the best performance of a four-socket platform on the market today by taking advantage of the latest-generation Intel processors, combined with the memory bandwidth and size of the two systems.
