Paranoid Penguin - DNS Cache Poisoning, Part II: DNSSEC Validation
And with that, your nameserver is successfully validating signed zone data! For now, I wish you thanks and goodbye. As I seem to do every couple years, I'm going to take a hiatus for a few months. I do plan on resuming the Paranoid Penguin after that, however, refreshed and renewed for your reading pleasure.
Until then, take care of yourself and especially your Linux systems!

How to Build an Optimal Hadoop Cluster to Store and Maintain Unlimited Amounts of Data Using Microservers
Realizing the promise of Apache® Hadoop® requires the effective deployment of compute, memory, storage and networking to achieve optimal results. With its flexibility and multitude of options, it is easy to over or under provision the server infrastructure, resulting in poor performance and high TCO. Join us for an in depth, technical discussion with industry experts from leading Hadoop and server companies who will provide insights into the key considerations for designing and deploying an optimal Hadoop cluster.
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
