ScaleMP announced today that they have officially delivered vSMP Foundation to their 150th customer. Alongside this, they have also quadrupled the vSMP Foundation aggregation platform revenue in 2009. So who’s lucky number 150? Its Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX. New customers in 2009 also include Massachusetts General Hospital, R-Systems and the San Diego Supercomputing Center. They also sold into several new foreign markets, including Canada, China, Holland, Israel, South Africa and Spain.
Our customers need high-end large memory symmetric multiprocessing system capabilities without the historically high costs and proprietary design usually associated with these types of solutions,” said Keith Fischbach, president of Padova Technologies. “With ScaleMP’s vSMP Foundation software aggregation solution, our customers can leverage the latest processor technologies to deliver a single cost-effective logical virtual SMP system providing terabytes of memory, without sacrificing performance.”
When I took this position, I had the option of placing the startup capital into hardware or something new. I decided to try something new and selected ScaleMP for its innovative approach to SMP clusters and for what I believed it would enable us to do,” said Dr. Elfi Kraka, Professor and Chair, Department of Chemistry, Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. “ScaleMP has allowed us to stretch our budget and give our lab the HPC capabilities we require. It has also served as an excellent pilot project so that other departments at the university can see first-hand how beneficial the scalable performance metrics can be to our research and future supercomputer.”
