Big Data Kills 30-Year-Old Market

Data Services Journal If you’ve got simply scads of data – and why wouldn’t you? – it’s doubling every 18 months – and are shuttling it to an application for analysis, you’re doing it wrong. That’s so…so, well, 1980. According to Aster Data, applications need to go to “Big Data,” not the other way around. And to do that the company’s got a massively parallel data-application server that can embed applications inside a massively scalable MPP data warehouse and analyze petabytes of data – or terabytes, if that’s all you’ve got – ultra-fast. Apps are automatically parallelized for scale; users can take their existing Java, C, C++, C#, .NET, Perl and Python applications, MapReduce-enable them and push them down into the data. The widgetry runs on a cluster of commodity boxes. Figure five servers to start although parallelized applications can utilize terabytes of memo... (more)

Cloud Gaming and the Future of Console Gaming

With the fall/winter 2013 release of Playstation 4 and Xbox One, the console world is starting to buzz about the possibilities of Cloud gaming. Now, we have to admit, we normally use this space to blog about more VPS Cloud centric topics however, we, like you, are nerds, geeks and gamers. Due to this, we are going to break from our normal indulgence in Cloud tech to talk about the future of console gaming and how it relates to the Cloud. Cloud Gaming: A Short History Before we can chat about the real subject of this post (the Cloud capabilities of PS4 vs. Xbox One), we have to take some time to cover the history of Cloud gaming. From the founding of Cloud gaming at the turn of the millennium to last year’s acquisition of Gaikai (the world’s largest Cloud gaming community) by Sony to Microsoft’s announcement that legacy games will only be playable by way of optical di...

Umm, About That $100m Microsoft Funneled to SCO

A piece of juicy compromising e-mail written by a SCO consultant to SCOsource VP Chris Sontag and SCO CFO Bob Bench last October suggesting that Microsoft had quietly funneled $86 million to SCO and that it was good for at least $106 million before tapping all possibilities happened to turn up on open source philosopher Eric Raymond's web site Thursday. Eric made it part of his Microsoft-embarrassing internal documents collection and dubbed it Halloween X. (See www.opensource.org.) He says he got it from an "anonymous whistleblower inside SCO," which is odd because, given the timing and other little niceties, one would be tempted to think that it was a bit of SCO discovery that somehow got loose from IBM. Oh, yeah, Eric is a sometime consultant for IBM and his anti-SCO credentials are impeccable. Right at the top of the kinda disjointed e-mail the consultant, one Mik... (more)

Hyper-Threading Java

In early 2002 Intel became the first chip manufacturer to release a processor incorporating a new technology known as Simultaneous Multithreading, or SMT. Intel's SMT implementation (dubbed Hyper-Threading or HT) has been available in their Xeon processor line for over a year, with little fanfare. In April 2003, Intel announced that HT technology will be added to its desktop-focused Pentium 4 line of processors. With HT enabled on one of these new systems, the BIOS will present a single processor to the operating system as two logical processors. As Java developers, we should all be excited about this new feature of Intel processors. The java.lang.Thread object was one of the key factors driving Java to the strong position it enjoys in the server-side applications market. Both client and server applications written in Java often make heavy use of threads. Indeed ev... (more)
