ABSTRACT
The article reports on the annual Storage Networking World event in the U.S. Due to the legislation that holds the user accountable for retaining certain information, number of storage area network (SAN) switches users is rising. Founder and analyst of Dell'Oro Group Tam Dell'Oro stressed that the number of users who purchase servers need switches to connect them to SANs. The event features technologies including multiprotocol routers, mezzanine cards and SAN extensions. The vendors of fibre channel (FC) storage switch are working hard to increase their throughput due to the demand while sales of one giga byte per second FC switches have all but ceased.

    A crucial problem that needs to be solved is the allocation of memory to processors in a pipeline. Ideally, the processor memories should be totally separate (i.e., one-port memories) in order to minimize contention; however, this minimizes memory sharing. Idealized sharing occurs by using a...
