TYAN is targeting its newly released S8225 Workstation Motherboard at graphics workstation and personal supercomputing applications. The power-efficient S8225 supports two six-core AMD Opteron 4100 series processors and up to four double-wide PCI-E 2.0 GPGPU compute accelerators. Additional features include four 1-Gbit Ethernet ports, integrated support for IPMI 2.0, an optional LSI 2008 SAS controller, integrated audio, IEEE 1394a headers and TPM 1.2 support in an EATX 12" x 13" form factor.
Illumination Software Creator from Radical Breeze makes application development not only accessible to everyone but also “just plain fun”. Now in version 3.0, this cross-platform, 100% visual application creation suite allows even those with absolutely no programming experience to visually design and create their own software applications that run on a wide variety of platforms. This latest version adds support for native iPhone and iPad applications using the exact same projects that already build for Android, Flash and so on. Apps produced for iOS platforms by Illumination Software Creator are able to be submitted to the iTunes App Store. Support for Windows Phone 7 applications is coming soon.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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
