SINGLE CHIP CLOUD COMPUTING
A Single Chip Cloud Computer (SCC) is an experimental microprocessor developed by Intel Labs. The SCC microprocessor includes 48 cores integrated on a single silicon chip. SCC has a dual core SCC tile, memory controller and 24-router mesh network.

SCC resembles a cluster of computer nodes capable of communicating with other computer node clusters. Because it serves as a computer data center on a silicon chip, the SCC is considered an excellent example of a cloud data center and ideal hardware platform.

SCC features include:-
• High-speed network
• Improved communication between cores
• Enhanced performance
• Energy efficiency
• Intelligent data movement between cores
The SCC microprocessor consists of 24 tiles with two cores per tile. Each core has only two cache levels used as a separate computing node running separate OS and software stacks, which further simplifes design and minimize power consumption. Applications running on SCC can switch cores on and off, depending on requirements.
• SCC’s two most important features are message-passing and power management and onchip networks.
• All 48 cores may operate simultaneously over a range of 25-125 W. Network routing frequency and voltage may be selectively configured.
