Four new lines of server platform are now available from TYAN, all of which are designed to take full advantage of AMD FireStream GPU compute accelerators. These compute accelerators deliver what TYAN labels “shocking floating-point performance that is exponentially faster than x86 CPUs in some applications”. The solutions—models B7015, S7025, S8225 and S8236—range from one AMD FireStream compute accelerator in a 1U server up to eight compute accelerators in a 4U platform. These platforms feature double-wide PCIe 2.0 x16 slots, and they meet the special mechanical requirements as well as the power and airflow needs to support AMD FireStream 9170, 9250, 9270, 9350 and 9370 GPU compute accelerators.
As the old adage goes, you can't manage what you don't measure. And if managing resource (such as electricity, water and so on) use or production is your goal, QA Graphics' Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard (EEED), just upgraded to version 2.0, may be the tool for the job. EEED is an interactive solution that displays real-time building data and educates occupants on sustainable building-management practices. The new version is a fully encapsulated application based on the Adobe AIR platform that runs as a standalone client or software as a service with no browser constraints. The solution often is used by organizations to help earn points toward green-building-certification programs, such as US Green Building Council's LEED and the Green Building Initiative's Green Globes.
Don't got bandwidth? Don't get bummed; get SuperLumin Networks' Nemesis, a 64-bit caching and application-acceleration platform. Besides offering the capabilities of a standard proxy cache, Nemesis addresses the need to enable and cache streaming video and rich-media on the Web. The application is optimized to cache bandwidth-intensive social-media sites, such as Facebook and YouTube. Other features include scalability to 64 CPUs, 100 million cache objects, policy-based content filtering, bandwidth management/traffic shaping and content distribution, among others. Nemesis runs on SUSE Linux.

Getting Started with DevOps - Including New Data on IT Performance from Puppet Labs 2015 State of DevOps Report
August 27, 2015
12:00 PM CDT
DevOps represents a profound change from the way most IT departments have traditionally worked: from siloed teams and high-anxiety releases to everyone collaborating on uneventful and more frequent releases of higher-quality code. It doesn't matter how large or small an organization is, or even whether it's historically slow moving or risk averse — there are ways to adopt DevOps sanely, and get measurable results in just weeks.
