Getting Ready for Solaris 11
odern computers no longer achieve their performance solely through high clock rates on single-CPU microprocessors. In fact, you can’t improve processor performance only in that way, due to the limitations of cooling and electrical power consumption. Instead, today’s general-purpose microprocessors for servers, workstations, and even for laptops use a combination of parallelism and multilevel caching to reduce latency and to run multiple instruction streams simultaneously.
Oracle Solaris 11 is an ideal operating ...
