Leibniz-Institut DSMZ Adopts ScaleMP's vSMP Foundation

ScaleMP, a leading provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing, today announced that Leibniz-Institut Deutsche Sammlung von Mikroorganismen und Zellkulturen GmbH (DSMZ) has adopted vSMP Foundation. vSMP Foundation delivers an effective alternative to proprietary, costly symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) system, aggregating the power of multiple commodity x86 servers into one larger virtual SMP.   

“DSMZ did not have dedicated HPC staff or facility, nor did it have any servers,” said Dr. Boyke Bunk, Group Leader - DNA sequencing and Bioinformatics, DSMZ. “ScaleMP’s vSMP Foundation made it possible for our DSMZ scientists to make the leap from laptop computing to an easy-to-use high performance computing (HPC) solution, enabling us to run Ubuntu -- one of the largest Ubuntu deployments worldwide with 192 cores on a single system -- for our application needs.”

“More and more organizations are turning to vSMP Foundation,” said Shai Fultheim, founder and CEO of ScaleMP. “And for good reason: this virtual aggregation solution delivers high performance for the cost of a cluster, with the flexibility to grow the system as workloads increase.”
