Software-Defined Servers

  • “This is the way all servers will be built in the future.”

    Gordon Bell, Industry Visionary.
  • “Demonstrating the simplicity of running TidalScale on a leading public cloud platform is another important step for the company establishing the value of its hyper-kernel based “Software-Defined Server.”

    Peter Christy, Research Director, 451 Research.
  • “TidalScale’s ability to pool physical servers into a single virtual server is unique in the industry and provides breakthrough performance while requiring zero modifications to applications.”

    Gary Smerdon, CEO, TidalScale
  • “Software-Defined Servers make it easy to run memory-intensive applications like data mining, machine learning and simulation.”

    Marc Jones, Director & Distinguished Engineer, IBM
  • “TidalScale-based systems can scale dynamically and at linear cost, as application needs evolve, without the need for costly hardware investments or time-consuming software rewrites.”

    Ritika Suri, Executive Vice President at Infosys
  • “We were able to create a single 15TB server from a collection of standard servers”

    Marc Jones, Director & Distinguished Engineer, IBM
  • “TidalScale is radically changing the computing landscape through its innovative technology that enables the dynamic and seamless scaling of compute power and performance,”
