Inside sources at eGauge Systems tipped us off to the fact that their new eGauge2 Web-based electric energy and power meter is powered by Linux. eGauge2, now 40% smaller than its predecessor, is used to measure and record whole-house consumption, renewable (such as solar and wind) energy generation, and individual loads, such as appliances or geothermal system pumps and backup heaters. It can measure up to 12 circuits on up to 3-phases (120V–480V, 50–60Hz). The data can be viewed on any Web-enabled device through the built-in Web-server, and the device records the most recent 30 years of data in its built-in solid-state memory. The measurements also can be accessed through BACnet and/or the recorded data can be shared with Google PowerMeter.
Given how good we Linux geeks have been this year, Santa Claus (via his agents at Graebert GmbH) is treating us to a new CAD application, namely ARES Commander Edition Version 1.0 2D/3D CAD. Graebert says that ARES Commander Edition is a powerful and affordable 3D CAD solution that is fully capable of supporting both AEC (Architecture/Engineering/Construction) and MCAD (Mechanical CAD) and the ability to exchange files across all three supported OS platforms, Linux, Mac OS and Windows seamlessly. Users also have a choice of experiencing a fully Linux-specific UI or a more tailored UI that matches the Windows version, both of which are fully command-compatible with AutoCAD. A free 30-day trial is available for download from Graebert's Web site.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
