The article discusses multicore architectures and parallel computing. Multicore allows greater computing capacity and application output in less space and less power, thus eliminating the need for additional hardware and software to keep pace in the user demands. Parallel computing allows the scalability of the business application and comes in two levels, the service-level and task-level. Service level separates a concurrency model to application logic while the task level gives fine level control to generate task on different computing threads.
