X-ScaleSolutions Joins the OpenPOWER Foundation

X-ScaleSolutions has joined the OpenPOWER Foundation, an open development community based on the POWER microprocessor architecture.

X-ScaleSolutions joins a growing roster of technology organizations working collaboratively to build advanced server, networking, storage and acceleration technology as well as industry leading open source software aimed at delivering more choice, control and flexibility to developers of next-generation, hyperscale and cloud data centers.  OpenPOWER Foundation members develop open hardware and software solutions including on a truly open platform.

X-Scale’s mission is to develop innovative and leading-edge software products, with a focus on four areas: 1) Big Data, 2) High-Performance Computing, 3) Deep Learning, and 4) Cloud Computing. X-ScaleSolutions specializes in a range of high-performance, scalable solutions for current generation systems ranging from small deployments of a couple of systems, to multi-petaflop systems, to the emerging Exascale systems. X-Scale combines expertise in parallel computer architecture, high-performance networking (InfiniBand, Omni-Path, RoCE, and iWARP), network-based computing, exascale computing, programming models, GPUs and accelerators, high performance file systems and storage, virtualization and cloud computing, BigData, and Deep Learning. Current products and support for OpenPOWER platforms include high-performance and scalable MVAPICH2 MPI and PGAS libraries and RDMA-enabled Big Data libraries (Hadoop and Spark).

“The OpenPOWER architecture provides an industry leading pathway to achieve performance and scalability for the next-generation HPC, Big Data, AI and Cloud applications. X-ScaleSolutions is proud to join the OpenPOWER foundation as a Silver ISV member and aims to provide innovative solutions to the software stacks for the OpenPOWER systems,” says Dr. Dhabaleswar K (DK) Panda, Founder and CEO of X-ScaleSolutions.

“The development model of the OpenPOWER Foundation is one that elicits collaboration and represents a new way in exploiting and innovating around processor technology,” Michelle Rankin, President OpenPOWER Foundation. “With the POWER architecture designed for Big Data, AI and Cloud, new OpenPOWER Foundation members like X-ScaleSolutions, will be able to add their own innovations on top of the technology to create new applications that capitalize on emerging workloads.”
