Worth Reading: Silver linings and clouds

Clearly, your management has never heard the phrase, “You get what you pay for.” Or perhaps they heard it and didn’t realize it applied to them. The savings in cloud computing comes at the expense of a loss of control over your systems, which is summed up best in the popular nerd sticker that says, “The Cloud is Just Other People’s Computers.” —Kode Vicious @ACM

    Limiting the story just to cache might be overoptimistic. NUMA locality can matter a lot, memory or network banwidth consumption not mentioning oversubsciption of CPU cores and resources other than cache that are still shared between hyperthreads of single physical core.
