At Oracle OpenWorld, TidalScale announced that it has partnered with Oracle to enable Oracle Cloud users to combine multiple bare metal servers into a single logical server instance through TidalScale’s inverse hypervisor technology.
TidalScale, a provider of software-defined servers, demonstrated the capability at Oracle Open World earlier this month.
“Large enterprises and government organizations are struggling to keep up with the demands of massive data flows and fluctuating workloads in the growing digital economy,” said Gary Smerdon, CEO of TidalScale. “The integration of TidalScale technology with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure enables organizations, for the first time, to run their workloads across dozens of Oracle Cloud bare metal systems as a single software-defined server in a public cloud environment. TidalScale’s support for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides customers with the flexibility to configure, deploy and right-size servers to fit their compute needs while paying only for what they use.”
According to TidalScale, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides enterprise-class compute, network and storage infrastructure on demand. TidalScale’s inverse hypervisor technology combines those resources into a software-defined server—a single, high-performance system capable of handling the largest big data and cloud native workloads. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure customers can run applications on a single OS system image across dozens of bare metal servers, using hundreds of cores and 30TB or more or RAM.
According to TidalScale, its inverse hypervisor technology makes it easier for organizations to deploy the resources they need to run high performance and cloud native applications such as HPC, big data or micro-services based workloads—entirely on the fly and without any changes to their existing operating system or application software of choice.
TidalScale’s inverse hypervisor runs multiple physical servers under a single operating system instance—combining all the cores, memory, storage and network capacity of those aggregated servers into a single massive system. This allows high performance, enterprise and cloud native applications to scale up or down on demand, simplifying management, according to the company.
