Liquid Computing, Inc. Launches Federal Business, Delivers Fabric Computing to Government Agencies Ahead of Traditional OEM Suppliers

Former Head of Sun Microsystems Federal and Juniper Networks Public Sector Takes the Helm to Drive Aggressive Growth

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Liquid Computing, Inc., the developer of LiquidIQ®, the industry-leading fabric computing system, today announced the formal launch of Liquid Computing Federal Inc., a company devoted to meeting the scalable computing needs of the federal civilian, Intelligence and defense government markets. Tom Kreidler, former head of Sun Microsystems Federal and Juniper Networks Public Sector, will lead Liquid Computing Federals explosive growth into the government marketplace.

“I always envisioned that the computing and communications industries would converge to provide the ideal solution for the high growth area of compute and bandwidth intensive applications”

I always envisioned that the computing and communications industries would converge to provide the ideal solution for the high growth area of compute and bandwidth intensive applications, said Tom Kreidler, president of Liquid Computing Federal, Inc. As the industry-leading fabric based computing solution, we are probably two years ahead of the traditional server suppliers.

Liquid Computing Federal works directly with and in partnership with system integrators to support the missions of federal agencies with demanding data processing and storage requirements by providing truly scalable computing at a fraction of the cost of traditional data centers. Customer evaluations, market analysts and industry benchmarks have validated LiquidIQs comparative features and capabilities, including:

  • No degradation in communications latency and bandwidth over scale and across chassis,
  • 80 percent reduction on total cost of ownership,
  • Green IT benefits such as 84 percent reduction in floor space requirements, 80 percent power savings, and
  • 90 percent reduction in cabling compared to traditional data centers.

Fabric computing provides a flexible architecture that accommodates both modern monolithic server designs as well as next generation componentized server designs. Fabric computing provides similar flexibility to virtualization and in fact can be quite complementary to server virtualization solutions, said John Enck, vice president of research, Gartner, Inc.

Most data centers today use no more than 15 percent of capacity waiting for a major event that requires massive computing power. LiquidIQ leads the way in server virtualization by enabling all hardware resources to be virtualized and available to be shared anywhere as workload demands change. LiquidIQ is complementary with software virtualization technologies from VMWare and ZEN, as well as virtualized storage solutions from providers such as EMC.
