To NUMA or not to NUMA

Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP)When your business is analyzing big data with the goal of providing answers in split seconds, you find yourself trying to squeeze every bit of speed into your solution. Among other things, this also includes finding the optimal processor architecture. This is why we’ve spent quite a lot of efforts studying the memory architecture alternatives – NUMA (non-uniform memory access) and SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) – to see which one could provide us with the best results.Read more
