FORT LEE, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ScaleMP™ a leading provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing, today announced that Weizmann Institute of Science has chosen vSMP Foundation. vSMP Foundation delivers an effective alternative to proprietary, costly symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) systems, aggregating the power of multiple commodity x86 servers into one larger virtual SMP.

“I am looking forward to our first deployment of vSMP Foundation from ScaleMP at the Weizmann Institute of Science,” said Vadim Malkin, Linux & HPC Team Leader at Weizmann’s Institute of Science, Division of Information Systems. “We serve a wide variety of research groups, and must be cognizant of the value delivered for the investments made. Using Apollo Hardware from HP and vSMP Foundation from ScaleMP we will be able to provide a shared-memory SMP facility to a large number of scientists without having to rely on proprietary or legacy technologies.”

“We are excited about this recent addition to an amazing roster of dozens of new deployments in 2015,” said Shai Fultheim, founder and CEO of ScaleMP. “More and more organizations are turning to vSMP Foundation — and for good reason: This virtual SMP solution delivers high performance for the cost structure of a cluster, with the flexibility to easily grow the system as workloads increase, while leveraging IT investments that were already made.”
