Active Media Products' 600X Pro Series CompactFlash Cards

The geeks at Active Media Products weren't satisfied with the performance of CompactFlash cards in digital photography applications, so they made their own. The company's 600X Pro line of CF cards, which write up to 90MB per second, aims to free the memory card's hitherto role as bottleneck in shooting action sequences with DSLRs firing up to 10 frames per second. Active Media also says that the cards support 0–70°C operating temperatures and are rugged and reliable enough to take into the field. Capacities range from 8GB to 64GB.

Cyberoam iView Appliances

Cyberoarm iView, an open-source logging and reporting solution, has recently become available in a convenient appliance form. The product caters to the logging/reporting requirements of SMBs and distributed enterprises, delivering a comprehensive view of network activity across dispersed geographical locations. Cyberoam describes the iView appliances as quick-to-deploy and easy-to-manage preloaded hardware devices with terabyte-storage space, RAID technology, redundancy and high levels of storage reliability. The appliance further enables organizations to gain complete visibility into network activity with real-time security and access reports related to top virus attacks, spam recipients, Web users and more, reinforcing organization-wide network security and data confidentiality. It also offers archiving to meet forensic requirements.

Perforce's Software Configuration Management System

Perforce came out swinging in the new year, announcing a new version 2009.2 of its Software Configuration Management (SCM) System. SCM is a tool that versions and manages source code and digital assets for enterprises of all sizes. The most significant addition to 2009.2 is shelving—that is, real-time metadata replication and additional functionality for working off-line. This feature enables developers to cache modified files in the Perforce Server without first having to check them in as a versioned change. Users, thus, can pass pending changes to managers as part of code review or approval workflows, share works in progress with another team member or workstation, test changes in a distributed build environment, and put aside an effort when a higher priority task arrives.

Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.
