The Pentium chronicles : the people, passion, and politics behind Intel's landmark chips by Robert P Colwell( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everybody knows Intel, it's one of the most recognizable brand names in the world. The Pentium Chronicles: The People, Passion, and Politics Behind Intel's Landmark Chips offers project manager Robert Colwell's first-hand account of the lessons he learned directing the team that designed and produced the most successful microprocessor in history, Intel-P6. Colwell presents the material in an engaging, accessible manner, revealing both the design and engineering and the management perspective. Engineers and project managers will find the topic of great interest, with lessons applicable to their own projects and careers
Decentralized Control( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Archons project is performing research on decentralized management of operating system level resources globally for an entire computer in which physical dispersal causes variable and unknown communication delays. We are interested in a very specific form of resource management decentralization: decisions are made by a team of equals who negotiate, compromise, and reach a consensus -- the objectives are improved robustness and modularity compared with conventional unilateral resource management. Making decisions thusly, despite inaccurate and incomplete information about nonlocal state, involves nondeterministic computations. The scope of this management encompasses the operating system resources of all physical nodes in the computer, unlike a network which has communicating local operating systems. Failure atomicity requires a transaction facility in the OS kernel, but the usual serialization model of data consistency is insufficient for OS use -- so, we have supplemented it with a relational one. Abstract types to be managed within a decentralized OS are different from the objects found in traditional databases, requiring innovative transaction techniques. The report focuses on fundamental issues of decentralized control ranging from investigations of decentralized resource management principles to architectural support for decentralized operating systems. A development plan for the decentralized ArchOS operating system is included. Also, the DATE decentralized algorithm simulation environment and the Archons Interim Testbed are described
