"Traditional server virtualization has mainly focused on consolidation, which occurs when a physical server is partitioned to run multiple virtual or logical servers," writes Shai Fultheim, founder and CEO of ScaleMP.

"However, using server virtualization for aggregation can result in as many or even more efficiencies, especially for compute or memory intensive applications common in the high performance computing market. Server virtualization for aggregation is when multiple physical servers are combined so that they appear and function as a single virtual system. "

Shai will lead a session at Cloud Expo entitled, "Server Virtualization: Aggregation vs. Consolidation," during which he "will discuss the differences between server virtualization for consolidation and aggregation, provide best practices, and give use cases for assessing when server virtualization for aggregation can be used for maximum benefits," he writes.

As founder and CEO of ScaleMP, Shai Fultheim designed and architected the core technology behind the company, and is now responsible for its strategy and direction. He has more than 15 years of experience in technology and business roles, including a few years on the IT end-user side.

Before founding ScaleMP, Fultheim was CTO of BRM Capital, a first-tier Israeli venture capital firm. Prior to BRM, he was co-founder, CTO, and VP R&D at several technology startups. He has also served in the Israeli Defense Force's Central intelligence unit, where he led a large IT organization.

He holds a bachelor of technology and applied science from the Jerusalem College of Technology. He has been an active member of several open source initiatives such as Apache, Jakarta Tomcat, Amanda and the Linux kernel.
