Computer hardware vendors that use "commodity" operating systems such as Microsoft's Windows NT [Custer 1993] face an even greater problem in obtaining operating system support for their CC-NUMA multiprocessors.
A large CC-NUMA multiprocessor can be configured with multiple virtual machines each running a commodity operating system such as Microsoft's Windows NT or some variant of UNIX.
The use of commodity software leverages the significant engineering effort invested in these operating systems and allows CC-NUMA machines to support their large application base.
Besides the flexibility to support a wide variety of workloads efficiently, this approach has a number of additional advantages over other system software designs targeted for CC-NUMA machines.
