Azulがデータセンターの最適化

Javaや.Netのアプリケーションを走らせるサーバを透過的に集約するサーバ製品のようですが。
独自に24プロセッサ・コアのマイクロプロセッサを開発して提供する、というこの時代にしては極めて野心的な試み。
このニュースではEDSが自社サービス用にテスト中の由。
面白そうな気がします。
日本では既に日商エレ、CTC等が代理店を取っているみたいですが。

If Stephen DeWitt gets his way, the data center will become a much cooler place. Literally.
On a recent tour of his company’s new customer briefing center in Mountain View, California, the chief executive officer (CEO) of Azul Systems Inc. buzzed around rack after rack of his company’s hardware, barely able to contain his excitement. “Put your hand there,” DeWitt said, pointing to the back of one of the as-yet-unnamed Azul systems. “No heat.”

Users eye computer grids as potential servers for mainstream apps – Computerworld
FEBRUARY 14, 2005 (COMPUTERWORLD) – BOSTON
Computer grids are emerging as potential application servers for mainstream business uses, which could broaden their deployment in corporate enterprises, said IT managers and vendors who attended the GlobusWorld conference here last week.
:
But Robert Ortega, Wachovia’s vice president of architecting and engineering, said he believes grid computing may be ready for broader use. “We have started thinking of the grid as a virtual application server,” said Ortega, who outlined his work with the technology during a presentation at the conference.
:
Wachovia is testing a new version of New York-based DataSynapse Inc.’s GridServer software, which would allow Ortega to move application servers based on technology such as J2EE or .Net to the grid. “We’re looking at this thing as a platform for running the services that make up an SOA,” he said, referring to a service-oriented architecture.
