March 28, 2013 03:32 PMResearchers from UC San Diego and Google found cloud-based applications will run as much as 20% more efficiently when data is located close by.
May 04, 2010 09:00 AMNo matter how much hardware and software we throw at data center computing, there is the hard fact that we are limited to using only the resources on a single piece of server hardware. Oh, we can virtualize the PCI bus and share peripherals among multiple servers with virtual IO, and that has use cases. Non-Uniform Memory Architecture (NUMA) is used in high-performance computing to aggregate fundamental computer resources like CPU, RAM and IO across a high speed bus. NUMA has the capability of virtualizing the hardware itself and it's going to be the hot thing within two years.
April 28, 2010 08:00 AMIn the realm of high-performance computing, more is better. HP has announced an upgrade to it's Cache Coherent Non-Uniform Memory Access (ccNUMA) computing platform, Superdome, named Superdome 2. Superdome 2 provides flexible scalability and fault tolerance necessary for high-performance computing. While NUMA-based systems like Superdome and Superdome 2 have been relegated to relatively niche markets focused on high-performance computing and high-speed transactions, as IT moves towards virtualization, your data center will start to resemble an HPC cluster rather than a rack of servers.
December 05, 2009 07:31 PMNon Uniform Memory Access or NUMA is becoming increasingly commonplace on the next generation of very powerful servers. What does this mean for virtualization applications on the latest VMware incarnation? Serious performance increases for NUMA equipped systems.
