Liqid Enables Industry-first Unified Multi-Fabric Support for Composable Infrastructure

Liqid Command Center Software Drives Unified Multi-Fabric
Composability Enabling Simultaneous Support for PCIe Gen 3, PCIe Gen 4,
Ethernet, Infiniband, and Gen-Z Fabrics

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/ArtificialIntelligence?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#ArtificialIntelligencelt;/agt;–Dell Technologies World (booth #1338) — Liqid, provider of the
world’s most comprehensive composable infrastructure platform, today
announces unified multi-fabric support for composability across all
major fabric types, including PCIe Gen 3, PCIe Gen 4, Ethernet,
Infiniband, while laying the foundation for the upcoming Gen-Z
specifications. Liqid’s upcoming release of its Command Center 2.2
software will enable IT users to dynamically compose servers from pools
of CPU, GPU, FPGA, NVMe, and NICs, regardless of underlying fabric type.
This milestone makes Liqid Command Center Software the most complete and
adaptive solution in the marketplace. Command Center 2.2 extends the
company’s capabilities to compose infrastructure across multiple fabric
types while laying the foundation for future architectures, positioning
Liqid for unrivaled industry leadership.

“Providing Ethernet and Infiniband composability in addition to PCIe is
a natural extension of our leadership in fabric management and aligns
with our mission to facilitate true data center disaggregation,” said
Sumit Puri, CEO and Co-founder, Liqid. “We are pleased to be able to
offer our customers an increasingly flexible approach to composability
by enabling Liqid Command Center with the simultaneous management of
multiple fabric types. This is an important achievement towards
delivering an industry-leading unified solution for multi-fabric
composable infrastructure.”

Liqid Command Center Software is purpose-built to enable dynamic,
bare-metal composability utilizing pools off-the-shelf hardware
connected across intelligently-managed fabrics. With the ability to
compose across PCIe, Ethernet, and Infiniband, Liqid is dramatically
increasing the utilization, flexibility, and ease of use of valuable
data center resources. IT administrators can realize the benefits of
on-demand, adaptive infrastructure composed simultaneously across
multiple fabric types. Resources such as NVMe storage, GPUs, and FPGAs
can be deployed across the data center as needed, via multiple fabrics,
and monitored through a single pane-of-glass GUI or through
comprehensive REST API.

Additionally, Liqid is a member of the Gen-Z consortium and is actively
enabling support for the new protocol in future releases of Liqid
Command Center Software. In this way, Liqid is “future-proofing” fabric
management for users who seek the performance and utilization
efficiencies promised by composable infrastructure deployed with Gen-Z.

“Evolving artificial intelligence and machine learning workloads and new
communication protocols such as 5G are pushing legacy data center
architectures to a breaking point. These dynamic applications demand a
dynamic and flexible data center framework,” said Eric Slack, Sr.
Analyst with the Evaluator Group. “With the advent of composable
infrastructure, and now with Liqid’s cross-composability on PCIe,
Ethernet, Infiniband and upcoming fabrics such as Gen Z, Liqid will
drive the widest array of protocols for its comprehensive suite of
composable infrastructure solutions.”

Liqid Command Center Software Revision 2.2 Enables:

  • Support for composability over PCIe Gen4
  • Support for composability over 100Gb Ethernet
  • Support for composability over 100Gb EDR Infiniband
  • Composable storage with NVMe-oF (RoCEv2)
  • Composable GPU with GPU-oF (TCP/IP)
  • General availability of Liqid Command Center 2.2 is expected in 2H-2019
