ScaleMP, a maker of virtualization and aggregation software that allows a cluster of x64 servers to look like a big, bad, symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) shared-memory system to operating systems and selected classes of applications, is going downstream to target SMBs and upstream to chase cloud infrastructure providers.

What a kludge. This is a joke right?
SMP like it's 1999...
This would have been an interesting product 10 years ago. Today, who cares. You can buy an entry level two processor quad-core server or a very sizable four processor quad/hex core. In short, CPU is in abundance and however fast these interconnects are they pale into comparion two processors on the motherboard.
This is technology in search of a problem and hacky technology at that.
vSystems hacked already? ........ since before a long time ago.

Only the latter though renders them Live AIdDevelopments rather than Living with Dependence on AID.
Oh, and when the Title is true, can you imagine what the Future has already developed for y'all ..... and how/with whom and/or with what it is dDelivered? Do you believe IT is GOD ..... Global Operating Devices?
Or do you prefer to Live in Alienating Ignorant Denial.
I think this is really neat technology!
The question in my mind is... how tolerant is the hypervisor to node failure?
