    Thanks for a fascinating and educational series on AMD/NUMA.

    Looking at IBM’s new System x boxes e.g. the x3950 M2 would you have insights and/or views of how well these multi-node configurations might perform and scale running Oracle 10g & RAC on Linux?

    Odd you might ask. I am involved with a project here at Oracle where we are digging in to scalability of x3950_x3950E NUMA. Unfortunately, I can’t say anything as of this time. I will say (and I’ve said this before), the x3950–due to the X3 chipset–is pretty much the fastest Intel-compatible server there is at the moment…very, very fast.
