  • Enhanced real-time machine learning improves performance and scalability and delivers up to 10X faster performance over a traditional server
  • Company stakeholders, from database administrators to data scientists, now can create Software-Defined Servers using a wider range of enterprise server platforms and at larger scale
  • Software-Defined Server market penetration continues to grow as customers embrace the disruptive benefits of sizing their server to fit their workload

CAMPBELL, Calif., Sept. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TidalScale, the pioneer leading the Software-Defined Server revolution, today announced general availability of the third generation of its Software-Defined Server technology.

The ability to compose a Software-Defined Server in data centers and in the cloud disrupts how large-scale in-memory workloads like Oracle or SAP are deployed. Because TidalScale software enables the use of broadly available and cost-effective instances to compose large-scale systems on demand, IaaS customers are no longer required to make costly long-term commitments to deliver multi-terabyte solutions in the public cloud. For on-premises deployments, TidalScale software enables organizations to create right-sized servers from their existing commodity systems, removing the cost of expensive scale-up investments when their in-memory computing needs escalate.

In addition to supporting a broader range of hardware ecosystem components, the third-generation technology incorporates an enhanced machine learning architecture. This results in improved scalability and system performance – with specific enhancements for Oracle Database and SAP HANA deployed on TidalScale-based platforms.

With these enhancements, TidalScale Software-Defined Servers provide insights from data faster and at larger scale than ever before.

At Oracle OpenWorld, a Most Promising Oracle Solution Provider
Also this week, TidalScale announced it was named one of 20 Most Promising Oracle Solution Providers by CIO Review magazine. To learn why, visit TidalScale.com or see TidalScale at Oracle OpenWorld in booth # 1723 Sept. 16–19 in San Francisco.

Gary Smerdon, President & CEO at TidalScale
“Businesses increasingly depend on the ability to gain rapid insight from the data they possess – data that is growing at exponential rates. But to achieve optimal performance, you need a system large enough to keep the application data in-memory.  However, a too-large system results in over-provisioning and overpaying for software licenses and upkeep. The key is to size the server to the workload, ensuring optimal performance while lowering TCO. TidalScale delivers not only the ability to scale systems on demand, but to do so with standard, cost-effective servers, data center networking infrastructure and unmodified software – either on premises or in the cloud.”

“Our use of data and IT is a key differentiator for us. In fact, it’s at the heart of how we have and continue to transform our business. Staying on top of the most exciting, cutting-edge technologies is part of what has made us the world’s largest flooring company. Making our vertically integrated operations sing from design through material sourcing and manufacturing to distribution is not without its challenges. The use of SAP HANA coupled with TidalScale’s Software-Defined Server technology is allowing us to stay ahead of these challenges and get the most out of our data.”

Eric Slack, Senior Analyst at Evaluator Group
"The public cloud is built on cost-effective, commodity infrastructure. Like the cloud, TidalScale leverages a software-defined infrastructure at scale, and uses that technology to fundamentally change how large, in-memory workloads are deployed, eliminating the need for expensive, scale-up systems.”
