New "Virtual Machine" for Multi-Core Apps

Ken-Hardin

32-core processors by 2010?

 

That's one of the predictions from a marketing VP for PeakStream, which is grabbing headlines this morning with its announcement of a "platform" that helps developers take full advantage of the new trend toward multi-core.

 

The key to the PeakStream approach, according to an InternetNews.com report, is a "virtual machine," which the company likens to BEA's WebLogic for Java applications.

 

IDC is among the industry experts predicting a boom in high-performance computing, with growth in the sector reported at about 25 percent last year.

 

Multi-core also is driving prodcut development in mainline data centers; Intel's new quad-core server architecture is winning high marks with its recent rollout.
