ScaleMP Demonstrates Best-in-Class Large-System Results

ScaleMP™, a leading provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing, today announced that it has accomplished best-ever recorded results for the SPEC CPU® 2017 benchmark for any system size of four processors and higher. ScaleMP's results for 32-, 24- and 16-processor systems are now holding the top three positions for best results ever.

In 2019, AMD (News - Alert) and ScaleMP announced a strategic collaboration to enable AMD server OEMs to create systems with four, eight and up to 128 processor sockets, up to 8,192 CPUs and 256 terabytes of shared memory using ScaleMP's vSMP Foundation line of products.

"We are extremely pleased with these new benchmark results, which show superiority across the board," said Shai Fultheim, founder and CEO of ScaleMP. "Customers can now scale their systems on demand for more computing or more memory, pay only for what they need, and be sure that they are buying the best and most cost-effective solution available that delivers the best performance."

"ScaleMP's unique software-defined server technology enables AMD to capture the leading positions for the system-scale SPEC CPU2017 benchmark without any custom engineering," said Raghu Nambiar, corporate vice president, Datacenter Ecosystems & Application Engineering at AMD. "Through our collaboration with ScaleMP, we expect to continue to dominate the scale-up benchmarks as this innovation continues."

The following table summarizes the current best SPEC CPU2017 Integer Rates and SPEC CPU2017 Floating Point Rates for every scale of server system and contrasts it with the previous best system/result for that scale.

About vSMP Foundation

vSMP Foundation is the underlying technology for ScaleMP's line of software-defined scale-up products. vSMP ServerONE aggregates multiple, industry-standard, off-the-shelf x86 servers into a single virtual high-end system, and provides customers with an alternative to traditional, expensive, symmetrical multiprocessing (SMP) systems. vSMP ClusterONE offers simplified clustering infrastructure with a single operating system. vSMP MemoryONE enables the transparent use of NVM storage as system memory, to reduce TCO and expand beyond traditional DRAM scaling limitations.

vSMP ServerONE supports aggregation of up to 128 servers into a single virtual SMP system:

  • Expanded system memory - to as much as 2PB of shared memory for large-memory requirements - by using DRAM from other servers
  • As many as 32,768 CPUs on a virtual SMP with proven scalability and record-breaking memory bandwidth
  • On-demand, composable SMP, with support for many common provisioning systems to enable increased data center utilization with a consolidated architecture

vSMP ClusterONE provides:

  • The only Hyperconverged HPTC Cluster infrastructure
  • Ease of use and lowest total cost of ownership for clusters of up to 64 processor sockets
  • No need for fabric or cluster management, coupled with simplified parallel storage architecture

vSMP MemoryONE transparently transforms high-end NVM devices into system memory:

  • DRAM-like performance, with up to 8x memory expansion
  • Cost reduction of up to 2.5x compared with DRAM-only solutions by using enterprise-grade non-volatile memory

Day 4, Cisco Live! - The Wrap

Day 4 was the final day of our first ever Cisco Live! We had a great show, with many great conversations and new connections with existing and potential end users, resellers, partners and job hunters.

Day 3, Cisco Live!

Day 3 of Cisco Live is history! For Fiber Mountain, we continued to enjoy visits from decision makers and influencers who were eager to share their data center and structured cabling challenges.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.

Day 1, Cisco Live!

Fiber Mountain is exhibiting at Cisco Live! In Las Vegas for the first time ever! Our first day was hugely successful from just about any perspective - from quantity and quality of booth visitors to successful meetings with customers.
