Taking a Virtual Machine towards Many-Core
The number of cores in modern computer systems increase rapidly. While the Erlang Virtual Machine has a history of good support for multicore systems, new development in the hardware industry requires further development of the Virtual Machine. This talk will walk you through the latest development, as well as the future, of the Virtual Machine regarding support for multicore and multiprocessor systems. The talk will also discuss what problems arise when moving from multicore to many-core systems and what the solutions to the forthcoming challenges might be. The talk will be quite technical.
Talk objectives: Give the audience an insight of some of the Virtual Machine internals.
Target audience: People with technical interest in the Virtual Machine internals.
