I just caught Dr. Cliff Click's Google TechTalk on his
lock-free hash table.

The (Java) source is also available
at sourceforge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/high-scale-lib

According to his talk, the algorithm "scales well up to 768 cpus".

I don't know if there is anything in this that would not fit Erlang
well, but perhaps it's something to look into?

Anyway, it's always interesting to listen to these performance geeks. ;-)

BR,
