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. Illumination Software Creator is available on on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X platforms.

Practical Task Scheduling Deployment
July 20, 2016 12:00 pm CDT
One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.

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
