Linux: New Products and Events
POET 2.1, the Cross-Platform Object Database for C++ is now available on Linux both in a single-user “Personal Edition” and in a Client/Server “Professional Edition”. It features cross-platform support, not only at the source level, but also provides binary compatibility between objects on all supported platforms, including many Unix platforms, Novell, and Macintosh.
POET is provided as a set of C++ classes which provide a fully object-oriented system, including persistent classes.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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