Next week Digital and Microsoft will announce a major update to their cross-engineering relationship, which will involve merging key technology from Digital into Windows NT. Sources at the two companies said the agreement will include developing the Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) technology for Windows NT. This will enable NT to scale to hundreds of processors and access banks of memory in a similar way to how the NUMA architecture is used on multiprocessor Unix servers today from the likes of Data General and Sequent. Microsoft also plans to include Digital's FX32 emulation software from the Digital Alpha into the Windows NT 5.0 kernel. This will allow Intel-based NT 5.0 applications to run unmodified on Alpha systems. Digital is also expected to help Microsoft develop its very large memory model (VLM) for SQL Server 7.0.
