The fine art of application virtualization
The new 8-core Intel Xeon 7550 processors are extremely powerful and a good platform for virtualised applications. My company is setting up PHP application running on a Xen based virtualisation on two HP Proliant DL580 for a total of 64 cores in a high availability environment. We are using Zend Server CE (PHP 5.2) and Oracle 11gR2. More info later as i have to go for dim-sum with relatives in a few minutes time.
