CUPERTINO, Calif., November 12, 2010 -- ScaleMP, a leading provider of virtualization solutions for high-end computing, today announced its participation in the 2010 International Conference for High Performance Computing Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC10) taking place November 15-18, 2010, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. ScaleMP will be exhibiting in booth 3239, demonstrating its recently released vSMP Foundation 3.5 software-based solution, which aggregates the power of multiple commodity x86 servers into one larger CPU and memory-virtual SMP.
ScaleMP founder and CEO Shai Fultheim will also be presenting a pre-show customer session at HP-CAST 15 Worldwide User Group Conference at the JW Marriott Hotel, Saturday, November 13 from 8-10 am. The focus will be real-life use cases of virtual SMP, hosting vSMP Foundation customers Southern Methodist University and 454-Roche.
ScaleMP's breakthrough approach provides customers in industries like energy, higher-education and research, life sciences, manufacturing and finance with the computational horsepower required for the most demanding applications and workloads, while dramatically lowering high-end computing costs by as much as 80 percent.
"Our customers have already benefited from vSMP Foundation's software-based solution as an alternative to proprietary SMP systems," said Fultheim. "We look forward to showing SC10 attendees how they can apply our various offerings for SMP, cluster and cloud to reduce OPEX and CAPEX, streamline management and gain the ability to 'pay as you grow.' "
During SC10, ScaleMP will be showcasing its vSMP Foundation product line in the company's partner booths:

Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.
