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.

Due to the high volume of inquiries received, Cyclades Corporation has announced the release of the Linux driver onto the Internet for its intelligent RISC-based high-speed (115 Kbps) 8-port card, the Cyclom-8Ys. The driver was developed in cooperation with Randolph Bentson, a Seattle-based computer science consultant.
List price is $459, but Cyclades is offering the board for $99 to resellers who are first-time buyers. Interested distributors and resellers should contact Cyclades Corp-oration's sales team for more details, and end users may ask for a list of resellers in their region.
Cyclades Corporation is located at 44140 Old Warm Springs Blvd., Fremont, CA 94538. You may call toll-free (800)347-6601, call (510)770-9727, fax (510)770-0355, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Linux Journal will be at Unix Expo in New York City from October 4-6. Please stop by and see us at booth #02078. If you'd like a free pass to Unix Expo, call us at (206) 527-3385 before September 10.
Also, during Unix Expo, the New York Linux Users Group will have their regular meeting. You can find them in Room 1E20 of the Jacob Javitz Convention Center on Tuesday, October 4 at 5:30 pm.
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
