The Teradata Virtual Machine Edition is delivered on a virtual symmetric multiprocessing system
(SMP) with the Teradata Database installed.
Available with up to 4GB of DDR2-400 SDRAM, the PENTXM2 can be paired with the support of VITA 31.1 backplane networking, while the PENTXM2's VITA 38 intelligent platform management interface (IPMI) enables ease of scaling into a multiprocessing system
. It has a dual SATA-150, a triple USB 2.0 port and an EIDE interface for an on-board disk or compact-flash support.
During each expansion phase, a Massively Parallel Processing System, a Symmetric Multiprocessing System
and a Global File System will be delivered and installed.
The Conduction-cooled 800 MHz 7447A Multicomputer is a COTS multiprocessing system
for use in extreme environments.
As there is supposedly no latency penalty it is more akin to a conventional symmetric multiprocessing system
than a ccNUMA system.
Functioning as a system master processor blade in a CompactPCI multiprocessing system
, the device supports hosting of hot swap peripherals.
"Unisys, long a price/performance leader in high-end Intel processor-based systems, is continuing this trend by bringing true enterprise class functionality to the Linux environment, to large scale multiprocessing systems
based on both Intel Xeon processors MP and Itanium2 processors."
HyperTransport technology helps reduce the number of buses while providing a high-performance link for PCs, workstations, and servers, as well as numerous embedded applications and highly scalable multiprocessing systems
. It is designed to allow chips inside of PCs, networking and communications devices to communicate with each other up to 48 times faster than with some existing bus technologies.
HyperTransport technology provides a universal connection that is designed to reduce the number of buses within the system, provide a high-performance link for embedded applications, and enable highly scalable multiprocessing systems
. It was developed to enable the chips inside of PCs, networking and communications devices to communicate with each other up to 48 times faster than with some existing bus technologies.
On the hardware side, Silicon Graphics (SGI), Mountain View, Calif., announced a new modular multiprocessor system at last month's Supercomputing '96 in Pittsburgh that extends the performance envelope of symmetric multiprocessing systems
. SGI and its supercomputing subsidiary Cray Research will market later this year rack-mounted Origin parallel computing modules as work-group, high-performance scientific, and supercomputing servers.
The PowerPC architects paid particular attention to defining PowerPC Architecture details, making it flexible and scalable, thus providing plenty of room for growth across a varied family of processors suitable for a wide range of designs--from high-performance, multiprocessing systems
to handheld computing devices.
It is much easier to write software for, and several advanced multiprocessing systems
already on the market are written explicitly for it - the best-known example being Micro - soft's Windows/386.
