ScaleMP Using RAM plus vSMP to Boost Server Performance

ScaleMP uses its vSMP aggregation hypervisor and cheap skinny nodes to boost main memory Over at The Register, Timothy Prickett-Morgan writes that ScaleMP has cooked up some new ways to build big memory machines for less money. In the example above, the workload in question only needs a four-socket Xeon E5-4600 or Xeon E7-4800 in terms of the processing capacity, but the 48 to 64 memory sticks in this box do not offer enough main memory capacity, and moreover, the fat memory needed to build up terabytes of memory space are very expensive. So instead of buying an eight-socket box to get...
