ATM-Based Multimedia Servers
Spring 1995 (vol. 2 no. 1)
pp. 39-52

The architecture of the next generation of multiprocessor systems is influenced by the rapid evolution of the client-server paradigm, advances in IC technology, the merging of computers and communications, and the preservation of current software investments. The next generation of multiprocessors will be deployed as servers in a multimedia client-server environment. Currently, servers can not handle multimedia traffic internally and effectively delivering the high bandwidth of the network to the processing and storage subsystems. In dealing with this problem, this article proposes three scaleable and subsystem-based multimedia server architectures. The server's subsystems are interconnected using ATM which allows high speed transfer of multimedia information across the server's subsystems, such as the storage, processor-memory, and network/communications.
