Liquid Computing to present its disruptive view on making blade servers succeed at next week's Fifth Annual Blade Server Summit.
Liquid Computing Corp., a developer of a new class of scalable server for high performance computing, will be presenting at next week’s Fifth Annual Blade Server Summit in Orange County, California. As a panelist in the Beer & Pizza Shootout, Liquid Computing will be sharing its disruptive views in the “What Do We Need Today to Make Blades Succeed?" discussion on April 18th at 6:30 p.m.
The panel will be led by Michael Krieger from Ziff-Davis Media and will include conference participants from Brocade, HP, Xiotech and IBM. Liquid Computing will be represented by Keith Millar, VP of Product Management, who will focus on Liquid Computing’s groundbreaking convergence capabilities and how it ultimately addresses the underlying root cause of performance and control bottlenecks associated with today’s blade servers.
Over the past 18 months, Liquid Computing has been working alongside scalable computing users that believe the company is addressing previously unsolvable problems imposed be legacy, fixed bus computer server architectures. These users have no software control of the underlying network that connects blade servers together, to storage devices, or to the network itself. Consequently, existing blade servers lack the control and real-time flexibility needed to deliver performance requirements and service level agreements users are demanding in a virtualized data center.
Instead of repacking legacy server architectures, switches, cabling and software into more dense form factors, Liquid Computing has successfully built an Interconnect Driven Server. Much like other convergence stories seen in the technology sector, this innovation is slated to have a material impact on the substance, form and underlying economics of computing. Scalable computing without compromise has arrived.
