ScaleMP announces vSMP Foundation for Cluster Structures

The vSMP Foundation for Cluster™ solution provides a simplified compute architecture for high-performance clusters - it hides the InfiniBand fabric, offers built-in high-performance storage as a cluster-filesystem replacement and reduces the number of operating systems to one, making it much easier to administer. This solution is ideally suited for smaller compute implementations in which management tools and skills may not be readily available.

The target customers for the Cluster product are those with initial high performance cluster implementations who are concerned with the complexity of creation and management of the cluster environment.

Key Advantages:
  • Simplified install and management of high performance clusters;

    • Eliminates multiple nodes, operating systems to one;
    • Eliminates the need for separate cluster-filesystem,
  • Stronger entry-level value proposition – scale up growth opportunities with no additional overhead.
