FORT LEE, N.J. – September 16, 2019 – ScaleMP™, a leading provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing, today announced that it has partnered with Liqid Inc., provider of comprehensive composable infrastructure solutions and services platform, to enable users of in-memory workloads to break beyond the server memory limitations and expand total system memory by order of magnitude over the DRAM installed, without any operating system or application modifications.
Available both as a PCIe Add-In Card (Element LQD3900), U.2 (Element LQD3925x), as well integrated within a Dell appliance with two Xeon Scalable processors and up to 12TB system memory, the new Liqid solutions leverage ScaleMP’s vSMP MemoryONE to enable memory capacities otherwise available only on high-end multi-socket servers. Liqid Memory delivers unparalleled scale for in-memory databases, including Oracle TimesTen and In-Memory Column Store, SAP HANA, DB2 BLU, Apache Spark, Aerospike DBS, and other memory-intensive applications.
“We are excited to collaborate closely with ScaleMP to deliver cost-effective breakthrough solutions for the industry’s most demanding in-memory databases, artificial intelligence, mobile and IoT deployments, dynamic cloud, and other applications that have been bound by the physical limitations of traditional DRAM and the cost of high-density DRAM,” said Marius Tudor, vice president of sales and marketing, Liqid. “IT departments in all kinds of businesses for which data performance translates directly to operational success can now set up the infrastructure they need for their data management.”
“Through the collaboration with our partners at Liqid, we enable powerful yet cost-effective solutions for users that need to scale up the memory capacity of their computer systems,” said Benzi Galili, EVP of sales and COO, ScaleMP. “MemoryONE enables Liqid customers to tackle the most demanding workloads and manage and derive business value from an ever-growing amount of data.”
At Oracle Open World, Liqid will showcase its Liqid Memory solutions with up to 12TB of memory and 184TB of NVMe storage, enabling in-memory calculations for extremely large datasets.
