TidalScale, the leading provider of Software-Defined Servers, and OrionVM, an award-winning next-gen Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provider, today announced a partnership to deliver hosted TidalScale Software-Defined Servers via the OrionVM Wholesale Cloud Platform.
This partnership will give organizations struggling with Big Data, analytics and memory-intensive computing challenges on-demand access to a suite of TidalScale Software-Defined Servers ranging in capacity from 1.3TB to 13TB of DRAM and up to hundreds of cores. The large-scale Software-Defined Servers are assembled from standard physical server hardware running on the OrionVM Cloud Platform. These instances are far larger than any available from ordinary cloud vendors, yet they are available at lower cost per gigabyte of memory.
TM software empowers OrionVM to easily aggregate processors, memory and storage into very large virtual servers. These Software-Defined Servers can flexibly scale to match the requirements of essentially any application, with no changes required to application software or operating systems.">TidalScale's HyperKernelTM software empowers OrionVM to easily aggregate processors, memory and storage into very large virtual servers.

Working closely with OrionVM, TidalScale is now able to provide an on-demand model for their Software-Defined Servers. This partnership allows for the easy deployment of traditional cloud infrastructure alongside the high memory TidalScale instances, all tightly interconnected by a high speed, low latency network.
"Through this partnership with TidalScale, we are now able to deliver very large memory virtual machines on demand by leveraging our Metal-as-a-Service products bundled with the TidalScale HyperKernel," said Sheng Yeo, CEO, OrionVM. "The ability for OrionVM to use standard servers and assemble them into a Software-Defined Server of any size allows our customers to easily scale their application past the boundaries of a single physical machine -- and well beyond the limits of servers available from AWS. The TidalScale HyperKernel on OrionVM's Wholesale Cloud Platform makes it easy to run memory-intensive applications like data mining, machine learning and simulation in the cloud."
"TidalScale's ability to pool physical servers into a single virtual server is unique in the industry and provides breakthrough performance while requiring zero modifications to applications," said Gary Smerdon, CEO, TidalScale. "Making the TidalScale service available via OrionVM's innovative cloud technology will significantly reduce friction and complexity for a wide range of clients by eliminating the need to purchase their own hardware and manage a datacenter. This is by far the most cost-competitive solution available for running memory- or core-intensive applications natively on systems that well outclass ordinary servers."
