Chapter 12. Conclusions and Prospects
Part 1: Architectures
In the first part of this chapter, we conclude our examination of server and server-related architecture by systematically revisiting the major conclusions of this work and then considering possible evolutionary paths. The first part complements the conclusions of the first three chapters, which performed a similar role for server-relevant technologies; here, we look at how these technology projections could be exploited in possible future systems architectures.
The second part of this chapter is a general conclusion.
Looking at the semiconductor technology trends, in which increased densities allow the integration of multiple systems elements—processors, caches, ...
