One new tactic being taken is to implement multiple servers (usually between 3 to 10) in order to improve performance and scalability, with the goal of introducing parallelism into the NAS file-serving process by having lots of CPUs
working together on the problem.
In the very near future, many of today's production-level servers will not only be virtualized but will be configured for and capable of performing internal performance audits or "automated health checks" (from I/O processing needs at the CPU
and memory level to page and buffer credit settings at the kernel level).
D-Tek paid careful attention to the manufacturability of the FuZion CPU
block, exerting exceptional quality control - including leak-testing each part and ensuring consistent manufacturing from one block to the next.
Hardware-based modems consume the least amount of CPU
resources during operation.

In this model, the CPU
hardware is responsible for fetching instructions from memory, decoding them into micro-operations, and then reordering them so they can be executed in parallel by the processor.
Tech's experience and IP with IBM's PowerPC technology will provide customers a programmable, high performance, SoC solution capable of helping customers modernize legacy systems into leading edge systems," said Ron Martino, Director of PowerPC Standard Products, IBM Technology Collaboration Solutions.
It is no longer possible to use a CPU
for this task and designing custom XOR generating hardware becomes increasingly more complex and difficult.
TECH began providing Bradley Position Interface Box two years ago with a modern System on Chip (SoC)-based PIB that is smaller, lighter, more reliable and lower cost than earlier systems.
The HyperTransport Consortium has also released the HyperTransport HTX(TM) connector specification which enables system designers to link high-performance peripheral subsystems directly to the system's CPU
via low-latency HyperTransport links.
ARC's patented configurable CPU
technology assists customers in the development of next generation digital media, consumer and communications devices, resulting in lower cost, higher performance SoC products.
According to the latest study released by Semico, the use of Configurable 32-bit CPU
cores is going to be the next major driver in several of the sub-families in the ASIC market, such as the System-on-a-Chip (SoC), the Structured ASIC, the Application Specific Standard Product (ASSPs) and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs).
