TidalScale's Year in the News

May (the month, not the guitarist from Queen) has always been synonymous with endings and beginnings. May marks the end of autumn in the Southern Hemisphere and the practical start of summer up north. It’s a big month for graduations (another ending), and just as big for weddings. You get the idea.

So with schools about to let out for summer, I thought we should look at our own report card.

It has been over 50 years since Gordon Moore saw that transistor density doubles every two years.  Over the decades, the interpretation of “Moore’s Law” has evolved to represent that the performance of microprocessors, and computers in general, is doubling every 18 months.

How the WaveRunner API Enables Tomorrow’s SDDC Innovation, Today

Guest blog post by Chris Busse, CTO at APIvista

In my consulting work, I encourage enterprises of many sizes to use standardized APIs across their business areas. This means I’m often called upon to explain what an application programming interface is to non-technical stakeholders.

In case you missed the news the other day, the analysts at Gartner have just named TidalScale a Cool Vendor in its 2017 Cloud Computing Report[i].  This latest report from one of the world’s most respected research outfits affirms once more that the time is right for TidalScale’s Software-Defined Servers, which bring flexibility to modern data centers by enabling organizations to right-size servers on the fly.  (I say “affirms once more” because TidalScale was named an IDC Innovator just a few weeks ago.)

Today, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) unveiled a prototype of a massive server designed around memory – 160TB of it in fact. In announcing this concept system, which is the latest project in HPE’s research effort known as The Machine, HPE chief Meg Whitman reasoned, “We need a computer built for the Big Data era.”

Why You Need a BFC (Part 2)

Last week, I looked at some of the compelling reasons for transforming a set of commodity servers into a big flexible computer, or BFC.  At TidalScale, we call this a Software-Defined Server -- a single virtual machine operating across multiple nodes, and that makes all the aggregated resources available to the application. But for today’s blog, it’s BFC all the way.

Guest Blog from Sheng Yeo, CEO of OrionVM, a partner of TidalScale

Cloud infrastructure providers today don’t have much flexibility when it comes to the systems they use. Resources devoted to running specific applications and workloads are generally confined to the limits of a single system, typically a “sweet spot” server that perhaps offers 24 cores and a few hundred gigs of memory. It's a matter of economics, really:
