Do You Have Too Many Servers? - We will attempt...
(Page 5 of 11 )
We will attempt to explain 64-bit computing implementation, which applications benefit from 64-bit solutions, and the key differences and benefits of migrating from 32-bit to a 64-bit architecture. Though, the performance benefits of 64-bit can be experienced by many high-end workstations and server applications such high-traffic e-commerce sites, computer-aided engineering, and high-performance scientific and engineering computing, this article discusses specific benefits on Microsoft® SQL Server 2000 (64-bit). We will discuss how to leverage the 64-bit architecture to gain record performance on large database management systems, data mining and server consolidation solutions. Extreme high performance servers are the top candidates for the 64-bit platform. Specially, large scale database management systems like Microsoft SQL Server 2000 (64-bit). The 64-bit environment allows a large addressable memory pool and offers newly optimized processing capabilities leveraging the Intel Itanium2 processor. Any application demanding high speed processor utilization, significant bus I/O speed, storing large amounts of data in memory cache, and high concurrency of hundreds and thousands of users, will directly benefit from increased performance by migrating to 64-bit architecture solution. For example, an existing 32-bit based application, after migration to a 64-bit software and hardware architecture, one will see immediate performance gains when taking on more complex workloads and processing large amounts of data.
