    TidalScale Teams Up With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to Enable Largest Cloud Servers in the World

    For the first time, Oracle Cloud users can easily combine multiple bare metal servers into a single logical server instance right-sized to handle the most demanding high performance, Big Data and cloud native application workloads.

    Gary Smerdon, CEO of TidalScale

    “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. 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.”  

    News Summary

    TidalScale, the leading provider of Software-Defined Servers that bring flexibility to modern data centers by right-sizing servers on the fly, this week is demonstrating at Oracle OpenWorld 2017 (NYSE: ORCL) how customers of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure can combine multiple bare metal servers in the Oracle Cloud into a single logical system of virtually any size.

    • For the first time ever, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure customers can now run applications on a single OS system image across dozens of bare metal servers, using hundreds of cores and 30TB or more or RAM.
    • TidalScale’s 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 – all entirely on the fly and without any changes to their existing operating system or application software of choice.
    • Oracle OpenWorld attendees can see this breakthrough in action at the TidalScale Booth #5311 and in the nearby Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Booth 2-4 at Moscone Center West in San Francisco. 

    Combination of TidalScale and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Solves Real-World Roadblocks

    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. TidalScale is announcing its support of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure today, with expected availability later this month.

    TidalScale’s Award-Winning Inverse Hypervisor Technology

    This first-ever capability is enabled by TidalScale’s acclaimed inverse hypervisor technology -- the key to creating a right-sized Software-Defined Server. Unlike traditional hypervisors that run multiple OS images on a single physical server, 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, dramatically simplifying management.

    In Booth #5311 and in the nearby Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Booth at Moscone Center West, TidalScale is demonstrating how users of any skill level can quickly build, allocate and manage one or more right-sized Software-Defined Servers using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure resources.

    TidalScale’s Oracle OpenWorld demonstration shows TidalScale WaveRunner™, a simple point-and-click control panel, running on a host within the Oracle Cloud. Using WaveRunner, TidalScale is illustrating how users can, in as little as a minute, build and deploy a Software-Defined Server that combines multiple Oracle Cloud bare metal servers. TidalScale is also demonstrating large applications running under a single, unmodified instance of Linux within the Oracle Cloud.

    TidalScale’s debut at Oracle OpenWorld 2017 comes on the heels of a wave of industry recognition for the company’s breakthrough Software-Defined Server technology. This year, TidalScale was named as both an IDC Innovator[i] and a Gartner Cool Vendor[ii] for 2017, and recently won the Red Herring Top 100 North America award for 2017.

    “Public cloud solutions like Oracle Cloud Infrastructure are an important part of the move to a more software-defined or composable data center model – one that helps businesses respond quickly to changes in business conditions, spiky workloads and new service demands from the enterprise,” said Ashish Nadkarni, program director for IDC’s Worldwide Infrastructure Practice. “Now we see TidalScale demonstrating how it’s possible to extend the benefits of a software-defined data center to the Oracle Cloud. Composing Software-Defined Servers of essentially any size from many smaller systems is, at this point, a unique advantage that Oracle can claim over other IaaS providers. But more importantly, it reflects the flexibility that software-defined resources deliver to users at large, no matter where those resources reside.”
