Extended hardware options:
"vSMP Foundation 5 is a significant release from ScaleMP. We are
broadening our reach by extending both the infrastructure we work with
as well as our integration with workload management systems," said Shai
Fultheim, founder and CEO of ScaleMP. "We are enabling very large memory
systems to be created, allowing for even more massive datasets to be
analyzed, through our expansion of capabilities. Big Data analytics will

Pricing & Availability
vSMP Foundation 5 is offered under the ScaleMP licensing model with
prices starting as low as $400 per socket. The per-socket pricing model
allows for greater simplicity when it comes to selecting platforms for
vSMP Foundation. It provides customers peace of mind by focusing on the
virtual SMP size and capabilities rather than on the nodes size and
model. Additionally, vSMP Foundation is now available with floating
licenses, allowing customers to reuse the same license for future
hardware generations. Floating licenses provide the best ROI from vSMP
Foundation licenses. General availability of vSMP Foundation 5 is
expected in 1Q2013 and will be available for early access in December.
