27 ClearPath: Functional Partitioning Why? More performance through parallelism, native x86 execution Expanded ClearPath capabilities using existing code A fancy term for split it into pieces Future I/O and network processors Language and application processors Already happening through Specialty Engines JProcessor: Java processor QProcessor: Message Queue processor ePortal: Web browser/Web services front end Unite 2011 © 2011 Unisys Corporation. All rights reserved. Page 27

28 ClearPath: Intra-System Virtualization A fancy term for replace Specialty Engines with VMs Exploit the huge number of cores available in new x86 systems Key technology: Unisys s-Par (secure partitioning) Not a general purpose hypervisor Focuses on secure partitions at the socket/core/IO slot level Provides guaranteed performance, security, and error containment Consolidates multiple separate pieces into one system Will support both MCP and OS 2200 Unite 2011 © 2011 Unisys Corporation. All rights reserved. Page 28

29 ClearPath: Acceleration #1: emulate faster Code unrolling, on-the-fly optimization, static translation, etc #2: use native code by decomposition or rewrite I/O and network subsystems Language- and application-specific processors #3: use native code by binary translation or recompilation Major subsystems User applications As ClearPath is functionally partitioned, we can speed up different parts with different techniques Unite 2011 © 2011 Unisys Corporation.
