ScaleMP recently announced that the ACC Cyfronet Polish supercomputing center has adopted vSMP Foundation for Cloud provisioning their research community. With 768 cores and 6 TB of RAM, the virtual SMP system at ACC Cyfronet aggregates 64 HP BL490G6 blades to form the world’s the largest virtual shared memory ever deployed by ScaleMP.

As a member of the POWIEW Project that provides the Polish scientific community with access to high performance computing resources for e-science research, Cyfronet needed the largest SMP supercomputer it could get, with the ability to scale for our large memory and high core count needs, as well as a solution that was super flexible,” said Kazimierz Wiatr, Director of ACC Cyfronet. “Only vSMP Foundation from ScaleMP fit the bill: providing us with 6TB of shared memory and 768 cores, using off-the-shelf servers, which can be provisioned on-demand on top of our choice of hardware infrastructure.“
