Building Custom Firmware with OpenWrt
This article demonstrates a technique for providing Kerberos, LDAP, network filesystem, print and media services using a Linksys WRT160NL wireless router. The result is a low-cost network server for the home or small office. OpenWrt has a wide range of packages available, so there is potential for many other solutions to be developed around this capable platform. For example, Samba could allow tight integration with Windows clients. Another option is Netatalk, which provides native Mac OS X file sharing, including integration with Apple's Time Machine backup software. Linux, open-source applications and popular network hardware like the Linksys WRT160NL provide a solid basis for developing innovative devices.

Free Webinar: Hadoop
How to Build an Optimal Hadoop Cluster to Store and Maintain Unlimited Amounts of Data Using Microservers
Realizing the promise of Apache® Hadoop® requires the effective deployment of compute, memory, storage and networking to achieve optimal results. With its flexibility and multitude of options, it is easy to over or under provision the server infrastructure, resulting in poor performance and high TCO. Join us for an in depth, technical discussion with industry experts from leading Hadoop and server companies who will provide insights into the key considerations for designing and deploying an optimal Hadoop cluster.
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
