Windows Server 2008: The More Cores, the Better
I've long been concerned about XP's and Vista's inability to exploit multi-core
. Both generally do a good job of using dual-cores and, depending
on the apps, can gain some benefit from quad-cores.
Windows Server is different. The latest rev of Windows Server 2008 uses up
to 64 processors. R2, due out in the next year or two, promises to exploit as
many as 256. That could handle some mighty big databases, legions of mailboxes
and a fair share of SharePoint!
What is your biggest server and what does it do? Brag to me at email@example.com.
