Jon Udell: VM-enabled polycore computing
: Pulls together comments on the massively parallel computing that's coming from multi-core processor chips. Jon points out the different models for these parallel systems, most of which involve one type of virtual machine or another (Java, .NET, LAMP, Erlang). These can function well with thousands or tens of thousands of parallel virtual machines. More prosaically, I also imagine the multi-core and hyper-threaded x86 machines that have arrived with more on the way, that today's simple monitors like vmware could exploit. 10:13:25 PM
