DOLPHIN BUILDS SHARED MEMORY CLUSTERING FOR NT

By CBR Staff Writer

Dolphin Interconnect Solutions A/S of Oslo is in the early stages of building a Shared Memory Clustering scheme for UnixWare. Dolphin has got some notoriety lately because it is supplying its Scalable Coherent Interface technology to Data General Corp to cluster its Unix boxes using a Cache Coherent-Non Uniform Memory Architecture, CC-NUMA. CC-NUMA, despised in some quarters, requires a monolithic operating system and is not feasible for a commodity product like Windows NT. So Dolphin is taking a Shared Memory Clustering approach to NT and will pair its interconnects with middleware and a driver that is being written for it by refugees from the failed massively parallel systems company Kendall Square Research Corp. Dolphin recently acquired some Kendall Square assets ang the user’s options, Sanjiv Pathak, staff applications engineer at Cirrus Logic, said, designers can reduce the cost of their notebook by offering multimedia options as an after-market upgrade. A number of manufacturers have announced support for the port – including Cirrus itself, which presented the proposal to the PC Card association last year – so Zoomed Video-compliant products should start appearing this year.
