Shai Fulthem at ScaleMP just sent me a quick note. Here it is reproduced below.
With the recent announcement of SGI’s (NASDAQ:SGIC) acquisition by Rackable Systems (NASDAQ:RACK), ScaleMP is announcing immediate availability of migration package for existing SGI Altix customers. ScaleMP’s vSMP Foundation offers up to 4TB and 128 cores shared memory system, and is available from multiple hardware partners. The recent product expansion to support Nehalem processor as well as multi-rail InfiniBand makes vSMP Foundation an excellent replacement for existing SGI customers.
In the last few weeks, ScaleMP has been approached by multiple SGI UltraViolet (UV) prospects seeking immediately available scalable x86 solution for data-intensive computing.
Shai’s company has kit that we are seeing rapid adoption of in a number of contexts. Imagine managing a single machine rather than a cluster.
I can probably hint that you may hear more from ScaleMP (and Scalable) in the future, on these and related topics.
