The HP superdome systems I've seen running Universe apps were single large multiprocessor systems. One notable example was for a wholesale distribution company running 400+ branches and around 7500 users on a single 24 processor machine attached to a large EMC Clariion disk array. One big database too.
In my experience UV Net is much too slow to use as a clustering tool. -----Original Message----- From: Anthony Dzikiewicz [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Monday, April 26, 2004 7:27 AM What does the hardware look like for a system with this many users ? Are they all running the same apps going after the same data ? Is UV/NET involved ? I curious on how you would scale up to a large number of users running the same application. Would you beef up the machine or would it be better to hook up a number of machines with UV/NET linking them together ?
