Is it necessary to scale to 1000 CPU cores? What's the motivation to do so?


@meatie Existing database systems are unable to take advantage of multi processors and hence they are becoming extremely complex in design (to achieve high throughput). 1000 I would say is a magic number used, It is an open research topic to make databases as scalable as we can.
