It is now much simpler to test, deploy, and use TidalScale without making a long-term commitment thanks to its availability on the AWS Marketplace. TidalScale is a privately held provider of software-defined server technologies backed by investments from Bain Capital, HWVP, AspenwoodVC, Sapphire Ventures, Forte Ventures, Infosys, SK Hynix, Citrix, and Samsung.
AWS EC2 bare metal instances are ‘glued’ together by the TidalScale software solution to work as a single bigger machine. This is done by the software by pooling the CPUs, memory, and I/O of many physical servers, virtualizing these resources, and then presenting them to the operating system as a single software-defined server.
This software-defined server delivers in-memory performance for high-value workloads such as databases, analytics, or simulations. Application or operating system changes are not necessary for TidalScale, which can be deployed in a matter of minutes.
“While the AWS Marketplace listing is new, TidalScale has been humming on AWS for some time,” said Gary Smerdon, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at TidalScale. “In April, we announced that TidalScale is available on AWS to support enterprise customers’ efforts to create and deploy servers of virtually any size in just minutes, all while offering scalability and reliability while minimizing costs.”
Consolidating Bare Metal
AWS users may utilize the AWS Marketplace, a digital marketplace, to locate, purchase, deploy, and manage the third-party software, data, and services they require to create solutions and manage their companies. Anyone with an AWS account can now quickly and easily buy the award-winning software-defined server technology from TidalScale through their AWS account. By doing this, the obstacle of new contracts or legal complications is removed when beginning your transition to the era of software-defined servers.
“We are pleased to work with TidalScale to make its software-defined server technology available on AWS,” said Tom Soderstrom, Director of Chief Technologists, AWS Worldwide Public Sector. “With its objective to aggregate the resources of multiple bare metal Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances into a single virtual server, TidalScale on AWS aims to provide customers with the flexibility to tailor their on-demand compute infrastructure for compute-and-memory-intensive workloads.”
