This IDC study looks at the proliferation of multicore processors and the effect they have on software performance.

"Forget scalable computing, the explosion of logical processors could lead to scalable computers," said Brett Waldman, research analyst, Enterprise Virtualization Software. "The lack of application development tools to efficiently program applications for parallel execution will drive the demand for greater virtualization management tools to solve the underutilization problem of multicore servers that is right around the corner."
