[THIN] Re: How many servers?

Actually Stuart often has said that Softricity has been doing rebasing of
sequenced app dlls from the start, which is most of the problem. [NDA stuff
makes me quote something they said publicly].  

In testing SoftGrid with T-Scale I have found that the SoftGrid for TS
platform itself, however, does benefit from T-Scale optimizations, although
if you sequence all the apps there isn't much else for T-Scale to do.

Agree that Microsoft **generally** does a decent job so you don't get much
optimization from those apps.  I think Adobe may be the other extreme.

That is incorrect. Softricity apps are isolated not optimized. Apps running
in the softgrid virtual environment look the same (from utilization level)
as the same app loaded locally.

TScale can optimize the usage of the app to reduce the amount of memory be
used. Softgrid doesn't do that.

Keep in mind that Softricity based apps are already inherently optimized due
to the way the sequencer packages the application.  There is little/nothing
TScale would be able to do even if it could optimize the Softricity
application.

Does "NOTHING" for. That is a big word... NOTHING. Lets see
Softricity based applications are not optimized by TScale. Why? Simply
because Softricity isolates the app from everything else to TSscale doesn't
work with it (wont let is share with other sessions which would not help
softricity at all) Bernd and I spoke of this some.

Helps less with Office products...

And there are some apps that TScale does absolutely nothing for.  It's a
matter of testing.
