ScaleMP Demonstrates Best-in-Class Large-System Results

Company’s soft­ware-defi­ned com­po­sable ser­ver sys­tems now lead SPEC CPU 2017 bench­mark results by gap of up to 96% vs. com­pe­ting solu­ti­ons

FORT LEE, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ScaleMP™, a lea­ding pro­vi­der of vir­tua­li­za­ti­on solu­ti­ons for high-end com­pu­ting, today announ­ced that it has accom­plished best-ever recor­ded results for the SPEC CPU® 2017 bench­mark for any sys­tem size of four pro­ces­sors and hig­her. ScaleMP’s results for 32‑, 24- and 16-pro­ces­sor sys­tems are now hol­ding the top three posi­ti­ons for best results ever.

In 2019, AMD and ScaleMP announ­ced a stra­te­gic col­la­bo­ra­ti­on to enab­le AMD ser­ver OEMs to crea­te sys­tems with four, eight and up to 128 pro­ces­sor sockets, up to 8,192 CPUs and 256 tera­bytes of sha­red memo­ry using ScaleMP’s vSMP Foun­da­ti­on line of pro­duc­ts.

We are extre­me­ly plea­sed with the­se new bench­mark results, which show supe­rio­ri­ty across the board,” said Shai Fult­heim, foun­der and CEO of ScaleMP. “Custo­mers can now sca­le their sys­tems on demand for more com­pu­ting or more memo­ry, pay only for what they need, and be sure that they are buy­ing the best and most cost-effec­tive solu­ti­on avail­ab­le that deli­vers the best per­for­mance.”

ScaleMP’s uni­que soft­ware-defi­ned ser­ver tech­no­lo­gy enab­les AMD to cap­tu­re the lea­ding posi­ti­ons for the sys­tem-sca­le SPEC CPU2017 bench­mark wit­hout any custom engi­nee­ring,” said Raghu Nam­bi­ar, cor­po­ra­te vice pre­si­dent, Dat­a­cen­ter Eco­sys­tems & App­li­ca­ti­on Engi­nee­ring at AMD. “Through our col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with ScaleMP, we expect to con­ti­nue to domi­na­te the sca­le-up bench­marks as this inno­va­ti­on con­ti­nues.”

The fol­lo­wing table sum­ma­ri­zes the cur­rent best SPEC CPU2017 Inte­ger Rates and SPEC CPU2017 Floa­ting Point Rates for every sca­le of ser­ver sys­tem and con­trasts it with the pre­vious best system/result for that sca­le.

ScaleMP soli­di­fies the lea­ding posi­ti­on of its paten­ted vSMP Foun­da­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy and line of pro­duc­ts as the best sca­le-up com­pu­ting archi­tec­tu­re for com­pu­te-inten­si­ve workloads, with up to 96% bet­ter per­for­mance com­pa­red to alter­na­ti­ve sys­tems. The results, made public by the SPEC.org, show that ScaleMP’s on-demand com­po­sed com­pu­ting archi­tec­tu­re pro­vi­des bet­ter sca­ling than hard­ware-only approa­ches.

  • As many as 32,768 CPUs on a vir­tu­al SMP with pro­ven sca­la­bi­li­ty and record-brea­king memo­ry band­width
  • On-demand, com­po­sable SMP, with sup­port for many com­mon pro­vi­sio­ning sys­tems to enab­le increa­sed data cen­ter uti­li­za­ti­on with a con­so­li­da­ted archi­tec­tu­re

vSMP Clus­te­rO­NE pro­vi­des:

  • The only Hyper­con­ver­ged HPTC Clus­ter infra­st­ruc­tu­re
  • Ease of use and lowest total cost of ownership for clus­ters of up to 64 pro­ces­sor sockets
  • No need for fabric or clus­ter manage­ment, cou­pled with sim­pli­fied par­al­lel sto­rage archi­tec­tu­re

vSMP Memo­ryO­NE trans­par­ent­ly trans­forms high-end NVM devices into sys­tem memo­ry:

  • DRAM-like per­for­mance, with up to 8x memo­ry expan­si­on
  • Cost reduc­tion of up to 2.5x com­pa­red with DRAM-only solu­ti­ons by using enter­pri­se-gra­de non-vola­ti­le memo­ry
