BALUG: REMINDER: TODAY!: Tu 2010-03-16: ScaleMP vSMP Foundation for
SMP presented by Nir Paikowsky and Kiran Thirumalai of ScaleMP
Bay Area Linux User Group (BALUG)
Tuesday 6:30 P.M. 2010-03-16
Please RSVP if you're planning to come (see further below).
For our 2010-03-16 BALUG meeting (TODAY!), we're excited to
ScaleMP vSMP Foundation for SMP presented by Nir Paikowsky and
Kiran Thirumalai of ScaleMP
ScaleMP's vSMP Foundation software enables the creation of a single
virtual symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) system by aggregating, or
combining, multiple industry-standard x86 systems running off-the shelf
Linux - which can create a large virtual machine perfect for demanding
workloads. vSMP Foundation offers the following benefits to data centers
o scalable x86 SMP with up to 128 cores and 4TB RAM
o maintains cache coherency between individual boards using multiple
advanced coherency algorithms
o utilizes all system storage and networking controllers to prove
high-I/O system capabilities
o creates the required BIOS and ACPI environment to provide the OS (and
the software stack above the OS) a coherent image of a single system
o up to 5X cost savings over traditional SMP systems
Nir Paikowsky is director of application and sales engineering for ScaleMP.
Kiran Thirumalai is Linux Kernel team lead for ScaleMP.
We will also have a supply of Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala" CDs on hand for
our BALUG 2010-03-16 meeting.
So, if you'd like to join us please RSVP to:

Well, don't worry we won't turn you away, but the RSVPs really help the
Four Seas Restaurant plan the meal and they help ensure that we'll be
able to eat upstairs in the private banquet room.
