Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Insiders at The Great Stan of Alphabetas are once more tipping us off about the Big Q's product plans. According to our extremely reliable source, a set of wizards at CompaQ will announce that the AlphaServer GS140 coming with 21264 chips and Tru64 Unix 4.0F will support static hardware partitions. The news has implications for Linux systems too. Version 4.0F of True64 will provide up to three static partitions, we can confirm, each of which will be allocated its own dedicated hardware resources. That includes CPU module, memory module and IO system. And each will be visible by both OS and applications as a single AlphaServer GS140 system. It's called shared_nothing. CompaQ will offer an upgrade to owners of AlphaServer 8400 systems. We believe it's called slicing and dicing. CompaQ UK/US was unavailable for comment at press time. Expect a similar bit of wizardry from those Samsung boys with their version of the letter Q, sorry A, real soon now. ®
