Performance

The Boston xScaler-vSMP, powered by vSMP Foundation&trade from ScaleMP; aggregates multiple, industry-standard, x86 servers into one single virtual high-end system. This flagship product provides customers with an alternative to traditional, expensive multiprocessing (SMP or NUMA) systems and also offers simplified clustering infrastructure with a single operating system.

xScaler-vSMP - Aggregation

Highly Scalable SMP

With up to 32,768 cores and 256 TB RAM by virtualizing the aggregated resources of multiple nodes to a single VM, this breakthrough approach provides customers in industries such as energy, higher-education, research, life sciences, manufacturing and finance with computational horsepower for the most demanding applications and workloads, and dramatically lowers TCO by as much as 80%.


xScaler-vSMP - On Demand

On demand SMP with vSMP Foundation™ Advanced Platform

Dynamically provision SMP capability based on workload demand. This provides greater utilisation by reusing the same systems for both distributed and shared-memory workloads. As workloads change, a datacenter with Bostons xScaler-vSMP installed can react to these changing workloads. Large, virtual SMP’s can be created as needed for users who need access to hundreds of cores and/or Terabytes of memory. A virtual SMP can be created on the fly by using a number of popular cluster management applications. When the challenging workload decreases or changes to smaller resource intensive applications, the servers can be returned to the cluster to continue to do useful work.
