ScaleMP Continues Momentum With New Release and Innovative Customers

ScaleMP a leading provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing and data analytics, announced today the release of its patented vSMP Foundation, Version 6.0. In addition, ScaleMP demonstrates continued success in the marketplace with the addition of new customers.

vSMP Foundation, Version 6.0 is currently available for download or purchase. Highlights of this major release include:

  • Star-Connect: connect multiple systems in memory-expansion (MEX) mode without InfiniBand switch, only to primary board. Star-Connect supports link redundancy and backplane load-balancing.
  • Significant performance improvements for MEX mode
  • Significant performance improvements for AnyIO
  • Support for Intel Xeon E5-26xx v3 processors
  • Automatic manipulation of Linux command line switches, for easier and optimal system tuning.

Additionally, ScaleMP had recently concluded a number of new installations, with RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems presenting at an upcoming SC14-related event. RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems, the leading defense systems company that developed the counter-rocket Iron Dome system, has replaced its legacy SMP solution with vSMP Foundation software. At the upcoming HP-CAST meeting, RAFAEL will present their experience with vSMP Foundation in a session titled, “Saving Lives with HPC: RAFAEL and the Iron Dome Counter-Rocket Defense System.” Having used ScaleMP software with HP blades to replace monolithic SMP with software-based on-demand SMP and seeing more than 4x performance gains on their OpenMP applications, RAFAEL's CIO will discuss how HPC in general and a software-based SMP system will allow RAFAEL to lead defense systems development globally.

vSMP Foundation from ScaleMP continues to enable leading organizations to solve difficult problems or make new discoveries. In 2014, notable repeat clients extending and expanding their ScaleMP footprint include Navy Research Labs (United States), The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation (United States); National Institute of Health (United States); Earthquake Research Institute (Japan); The Institute of Statistical Mathematics (Japan); National Center for Biological Sciences (India); Celgene (Spain); and Ghent University (Belgium).

New client wins include marquee organizations such as Army Research Labs (United States); National Center for High-Performance Computing (Taiwan); National Laboratory for Scientific Computing (Brazil); National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention (Japan); Kyoto University (Japan); Siemens Research and Technology Centre (India).
