MerTech Software & Consulting has announced the MerTech Credit Card Transaction Server for Unix and Linux based systems. The MerTech Credit Card Transaction Server combines with the Visa POS-port device to provide high speed, low cost, online credit card authorization and processing. Credit card transactions can be sent to the server over a local area network, using TCP/IP sockets, or in a batch file. Typical response times are comparable to those provided with an expensive leased-line service. The server can be easily interfaced with most database front-ends, and CGI scripts (for use with a Secure Web Server). Client APIs are available on most platforms.
Yggdrasil Computing has begun shipping its video seminar on installing Linux. Linux Installation and Beyond is a two and a half hour instructional video available on VHS in the NTSC format (the format used in the Americas and many industrialized Asian countries). A PAL version will be available soon.
Installing Linux for the first time can be intimidating, even for an experienced user. Seeing the installation of Linux first can save you time and help you better configure your system. If you already have Linux installed, you may find it informative to see the way someone else has configured their system or to quickly see the installation of a different Linux distribution without disrupting your existing system. Price: $24.95.

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?
