Grid Gurus: Breaking out of the core

The Grid Gurus blog has a story on how the rise of multicore could overcome the limitations of WAN by processing where you collect your data:
“Now that we are looking at 8 cores per processor with 16 just around the corner everything has changed. Soon, it will be possible to provision anywhere from 160-320 processors under the same constraints as before. It is easy to imagine another doubling of this shortly thereafter. Throw in some virtualization for a more nimble environment and we will be able to do sophisticated processing of data in the field. In fact, high-quality and timely results could alleviate much of the demand for more intensive processing after the fact.” Full Story

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems.
