Large core-count systems are beneficial for applications that have been parallelized to take advantage of multi-processor systems. x86 systems are limited by the number of processors per system, but provide high-core-count per processor. vSMP Foundation aggregate up to 16 x86 system-boards, providing up to 64 processors per system, coupled with high-core-count per processor. The resultant system provides end users with 128 cores with excellent performance and system scalability.
vSMP Foundation use best of breed volume-server processors providing maximum performance and best pricing. In addition these volume-server processors are available with lower power-consumption profile. Using multiple system boards allow vSMP Foundation parallel memory access across these board – providing the industry’s best memory bandwidth (click here for more information).
Large-core count solutions based on vSMP Foundation are in production within the Life-Science and Financial segments.
