Products[edit]

The ScaleMP hypervisor combines x86 servers to create a virtual symmetric multiprocessing system. The process is a type of hardware virtualization called virtualization for aggregation.

The privately held company received funding from Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners, TL Ventures, ABS Capital Partners, Evolution Venture Capital Fund[2][3] and private investors.[4][5] ScaleMP partners with a number of computer hardware manufacturers, including Dell, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Cray and Intel.[6][7][8][9]

The company's revenues come principally from the licensing of its "versatile SMP" (vSMP) architecture and related technology.[10]

The current version (April, 2014) is vSMP Foundation 5.5
