img-responsive“ScaleMP is the leader in virtualization for high-end computing, providing higher performance and lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)”.

ScaleMP was outset in the year 2003 by Shai Fultheim (Founder, President and CEO), Headquartered in Lemoine Ave NJ United States. 

Foundation of ScaleMP

ScaleMP is the leader in virtualization for in-memory high-end computing, providing higher performance and lower total cost of ownership as compared with traditional shared-memory systems. The company’s innovative Versatile SMP (vSMP) architecture aggregates multiple x86 systems into a single virtual x86 system, delivering an industry-standard, high-end shared-memory computer. Using software to replace custom hardware and components, ScaleMP offers a new, revolutionary computing paradigm. vSMP Foundation is a software-only solution that reduces overall system (CAPEX) and management complexities (OPEX) costs. vSMP Foundation aggregates up to 128 x86 systems to create a single system with up to 32,768 cpus and up to 2 PB of shared memory.

With installations in more than 30 countries around the world, solutions based on vSMP Foundation provide superior performance for database, analytics and simulation applications in commercial, government and public sectors. These solutions conserve the advantages of the traditional shared-memory systems operating model (ease of installation and management as well as large memory), while leveraging the cost structure of x86-based servers and providing access to a broad applications portfolio.


The vSMP Foundation™ product suite aggregates multiple, industry-standard, off-the-shelf x86 servers into one single virtual high-end system.  Hundreds of customers use the vSMP Foundation suite of products as an alternative to traditional, proprietary, and expensive symmetrical multiprocessing (SMP) systems, benefiting from the cost structure of x86 clusters. vSMP Foundation also provides cluster users and administrators with the simplified clustering infrastructure of a single operating system.  vSMP Foundation scales up to 2 PB of memory and up to 32,768 cpus.

vSMP Foundation

vSMP Foundation™ aggregates multiple, industry-standard, x86 servers into one single virtual high-end system. This flagship product provides customers with an alternative to traditional, expensive multiprocessing (SMP or NUMA) systems and also offers simplified clustering infrastructure with a single operating system.

With vSMP Foundation multiple servers can be consolidated into a single, easy to manage system. Multiple servers now appear to the administrator, developer, or user as a single entity, running only one copy of the operating system (OS). Only one set of updates, patches, and applications need to be installed, as compared with many when running a cluster of systems.  Each and every CPU in the aggregated system has access to all of the memory.

vSMP Foundation / Memory Expansion gives users the ability to access all of the aggregated memory of multiple systems from a single or multiple threads. By combining a number of servers together in order to expand the amount of directly addressable memory, developers and users can easily access many Terabytes of memory without having to learn complicated programming environments. vSMP Foundation / Memory Expansion gives users a cost effective system that scales the memory to the desired amounts.


vSMP Foundation from ScaleMP addresses a wide range of your requirements. Learn more about how vSMP Foundation can increase your productivity in the following solution areas: In-memory Computing, Shared-memory Computing, On-demand Computing, Consolidated Computing, Accelerated-Computing.

On-demand Computing

Flexibility for varying workloads – scalability in a changing business environment

As business demands change, server workload requirements change, and the ability to create the right type of system for maximum productivity is paramount. With vSMP Foundation’s on-demand computing capabilities, large-memory or shared-memory VMs can be created as users’ applications require large amounts of memory or CPUs in a single instance of the OS. These servers can then be returned to the cluster as the workload changes.

Unfortunately, common cloud computing resources cannot scale to support high-performance workloads with their requirements for a large number of processing cores or large-memory/RAM footprints. As a result, end users with different workloads have had to purchase dedicated, expensive and purpose-built hardware. In addition to the expense, these additional compute resources require extra time spent in maintenance and management, leaving less time for running workloads and generating application results. On-demand computing and the creation of appropriate virtual SMP’s increase organizations competitiveness.
