ScaleMP Announces Record Breaking SPEC Results

scalempScaleMP has announced the latest set of benchmark results to come out of their Cupertino performance lab.  With this release, they’ve claimed top five results for two Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation [SPEC] benchmarks.  The new results represent more than a 10X improvenment over the best results currently available for x86 shared memory systems.

vSMP Foundation continues to lead the industry in terms of the performance and savings it offers to high-end virtual environments,” said Shai Fultheim, founder and CEO of ScaleMP.  “vSMP Foundation outperformed other x86 shared memory systems by an order of magnitude, demonstrating the power of a single virtual system by aggregating multiple, industry-standard x86 systems.”

The benchmarking team used 16 dual-socket systems aggregated into a single shared memory system in order to achieve these results.  The official numbers where: SPECint_rate_base2006 which achieved 3150, and SPECfp_rate_base2006 which achieved 2550.  vSMP allows customers to aggregate up to 32 processors (128 cores) and 4TB of memory into a virtual SMP.  For more info, read more about vSMP at ScaleMP’s website here.
