Take a deep dive into Windows 2008 R2 features including enhanced support of Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) computer architectures, along with User Mode Scheduling (UMS) and support for up to 256 logical processors (LPs). Learn how UMS enables custom thread-level scheduling within your own application. See how new extended affinity APIs unlock the ability to address more than 64 LPs, and how NUMA APIs ensure that your application performs optimally on increasingly complex topologies. Learn why developers will want to ensure their applications scale well on this new generation of high-performance commodity systems.
