ScaleMP Founder and CEO to Present on High-End Computing Virtualization at the SOA World Conference and Expo East

Shai Fultheim to Speak on Aggregation, a Revolutionary Virtualization Technology


Cupertino, Calif. – June 19, 2008 – ScaleMP, the leading provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing, today announced that Shai Fultheim, the company’s founder and CEO, is a featured speaker at the SOA World Conference and Expo, taking place on June 23-24, 2008 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, N.Y. The ScaleMP session called “Virtualization for High-End Computing” will be presented by Shai Fultheim on June 23 at 9:10-9:55 a.m., as part of the Enterprise Virtualization track.

The session will describe the use of system aggregation, a revolutionary virtualization technology that allows end-users to get access to a large shared memory system built using multiple off-the-shelf x86 systems. Aggregation provides organizations with better price/performance compared to traditional symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) systems, and lowers the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to clusters. This new virtualization technology for high-end computing takes advantage of the traditional SMP operating model such as ease of installation and management, as well as large memory, while maintaining the cost structure of x86 clusters.

As founder and CEO of ScaleMP, Shai Fultheim designed and architected the core technology behind the company. He has more than 15 years of experience in technology and business roles, including a few years on the IT end-user side, leading a large IT organization in the Israeli Defense Force central intelligence unit.  Before founding ScaleMP, Fultheim was CTO of BRM Capital, a first-tier Israeli venture capital firm.

At the conference, the company will also announce expansion of its vSMP Foundation™ Standalone to support additional systems.
