In computer systems today, speed and responsiveness is often determined by network and storage subsystem performance. Faster, more scalable networking interfaces like Fibre Channel and Gigabit Ethernet provide the scaffolding from which higher performance computer systems implementations may be constructed, but new thinking is required about how machines(More)

This paper questions the feasibility and desirability of creating a composite health index, such as the DALY (disability adjusted life years), that aggregates information about both mortality and morbidity into one number, to represent the burden of disease. Despite the expressed intention not to include contextual factors in the description of health(More)
