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.
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 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.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
