Liqid Releases New Slurm Plugin and CXL Demo at SC22
DALLAS, Nov. 15, 2022 — LIQID Inc., a leading software company delivering data center composability, announced today a new Slurm plugin for Liqid Matrix composable disaggregated infrastructure (CDI) software. With new integration for SLURM version 22, researchers can accelerate server node creation times by up to 10x with finer-grained scheduling and orchestration for faster results. The company also demonstrated the new Compute Express Link (CXL) memory composition to HPC users. With the ability to compose memory on-demand to servers, CXL promises unthinkable memory footprints to support next gen applications.
In addition, Liqid is a core element of World Wide Technology's (WWT) new Composable Open Technology Environment. Engineers, data scientists, and IT staff can build and evaluate a data center environment designed to support emerging, high-value technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, seamless edge-to-core computing, and more.
