MEMSCALETM: A Scalable Environment for Databases

In this paper the authors propose a new memory architecture for clusters referred to as MEMSCALE. This architecture provides a distributed non-coherent shared-memory view of the memory resources present in the cluster. With this aggregation technique, a given processor can directly access any memory address located at other nodes in the cluster and, therefore, the whole memory present in the cluster can be granted to a single application.
