Announcing Whitepaper: "READ_ME_FIRST: What Do I Do With All of Those SPARC Threads?"

I'm pleased to announce a new whitepaper READ_ME_FIRST: What Do I Do With All of Those SPARC Threads?, written by Ruud van der Pas, Jeff Victor, Darryl Gove, and Harry Foxwell, and me.

Recent SPARC servers provide an amazing number of CPU threads: 1,024 in a T5-8 and 1,536 on an M5-32. This represents a tremendous amount of CPU power in a server, and the whitepaper describes how to exploit this capacity through parallelism, creating scalable applications, and leveraging virtualization with Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle VM Server for SPARC.
