The vSMP Foundation™ product suite aggregates multiple, industry-standard, off-the-shelf x86 servers into one single virtual high-end system. Hundreds of customers use the vSMP Foundation suite of products as an alternative to traditional, proprietary, and expensive symmetrical multiprocessing (SMP) systems, benefiting from the cost structure of x86 clusters. vSMP Foundation also provides cluster users and administrators with the simplified clustering infrastructure of a single operating system. It enables the transparent use of NVM storage as system memory, reducing TCO and expanding beyond traditional DRAM scaling limitations. vSMP Foundation scales up to 2 PB of memory and up to 32,768 cpus.
Software-defined composable server infrastructure: Pinpoint the exact computing power needed for in-memory databases and analytics with a single-system server that has up to 32,768 CPUs and 2PB memory, and more than one PFLOPs peak for technical computing application of a large-memory system.
Despite the many benefits of HPC, deploying, installing, and managing your first HPC system may look like a daunting task. In the case of the engineering and manufacturing industries, this is often referred to as the “Missing Middle” problem, a term coined by the U.S. Council on Competitiveness to describe the relative lack of HPC adoption among small and medium-size manufacturing companies.
Workloads which can fit into a COTS server system using high-end memory configuration can now be executed with much lower DRAM capacity installed. For example, instead of installing 768GB of DRAM into a dual-socket COTS server, you could install 128GB DRAM and approximately 800GB of high-performing NVM, saving on both CAPEX and OPEX.
