Bucharest Museum)
Description... soon! Nemesis is a Bull NovaScale Symmetrical Multi-Processing (SMP) server. SMP is a parallel computer architecture in which multiple processors run a single copy of the operating system and share the memory and other resources of one computer. All the processors have equal access to memory, I/O and external interrupts.
