Liqid, ScaleMP to introduce Liqid Memory

ScaleMP™, a provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing, has announced that it has partnered with Liqid Inc., provider of comprehensive composable infrastructure solutions and services platform, to enable users of in-memory workloads to break beyond the server memory limitations and expand total system memory by order of magnitude over the DRAM installed, without any operating system or application modifications, the company said.

Available both as a PCIe Add-In Card (Element LQD3900), U.2 (Element LQD3925x), as well integrated within a Dell appliance with two Xeon Scalable processors and up to 12TB system memory, the new Liqid solutions leverage ScaleMP´s vSMP MemoryONE to enable memory capacities otherwise available only on high-end multi-socket servers. Liqid Memory delivers unparalleled scale for in-memory databases, including Oracle TimesTen and In-Memory Column Store, SAP HANA, DB2 BLU, Apache Spark, Aerospike DBS, and other memory-intensive applications.

ScaleMP is the provider of virtualization for high-end computing, providing increased performance and total cost of ownership (TCO) reduction. The innovative Versatile SMP™ (vSMP) architecture provides software-defined computing and software-defined memory by aggregating multiple independent systems or high-performance SSDs into single virtual systems. Using software to replace custom hardware systems and components, ScaleMP offers a revolutionary scale-up computing paradigm by delivering industry-standard, high-end symmetric multiprocessing compute and memory environments.
