Number of Downloads Exceeds Initial Projections
CUPERTINO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ScaleMP™, a leading provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing, announced worldwide availability of vSMP Foundation Free. Launched in late June, the no-cost version of vSMP Foundation may be downloaded directly from ScaleMP’s website. This fully functional product allows applications requiring very large amounts of RAM to access the memory of up to eight servers without any change to application code.
“One of the significant challenges in scientific and engineering simulation is that models often cannot fit into the memory of a single server,” said Addison Snell, CEO, Intersect360 Research. “Rather than breaking it up into pieces, which can be inefficient for many types of problems, vSMP Foundation Free allows the user to aggregate the memory from up to eight servers to accommodate a larger data set. This provides a straightforward option for calculation with larger models.”
With vSMP Foundation Free, users can:
• Keep an entire database in memory
• Work on more complete genomics information
• Simulate larger MCAE models by using more memory for the model and temporary I/O
• Run larger research projects with more complete physics
• Make quicker decisions by investigating more data (i.e. big data)
“We are very pleased with the community acceptance of vSMP Foundation Free. Customers around the world that are performing analytics, drug discovery, link analysis and FEA pre- and post-processing are using vSMP Foundation on a daily basis,” said Shai Fultheim, CEO and founder of ScaleMP. “With a simple download and Web-based activation process, these users are now able to run applications that require hundreds of gigabytes of RAM and accelerate their processing time instead of hitting disk or flash memory.”
