Abstract:

Software-Defined Storage and Software-Defined Networks are now common. But what about the missing piece, Software-Defined Computers? TidalScale has defined and are selling something we call a Software Defined Server as an alternative to traditional scaled-out distributed systems. One single, standard operating system, like Centos, RedHat, Oracle, or Suse Linux runs on this virtual machine, as does Oracle, SAP/Hana, and all other applications and databases, all without modification. Typically, a customer aggregates off-the-shelf commodity physical servers connected by standard Ethernet to build a distributed virtual machine. Each physical server runs an instance of a hyperkernel. Hyperkernels are peer to peer, with no central point of control. Competitive performance is achieved by using a layer of machine learning between the operating system and each motherboard.
