Liqid Matrix software enables IT users to configure bare-metal servers in seconds. With Liqid Matrix, independent resource pools of GPU, NVMe storage, FPGA, storage-class memory, intelligent networking, and other high-value accelerators are orchestrated and scaled on demand to instantly address the requirements of the specific workload.

This eliminates the need for costly overprovisioning of infrastructure and reduces power and cooling requirements to enable the most efficient and sustainable data center performance at previously impossible scales. With Liqid Matrix CDI software solutions, IT organizations are better prepared to efficiently manage and grow their infrastructures to address the performance and efficiency requirements associated with AI.
