The VXA RakPak is the first rack-mountable tape subsystem to use the tape technology innovation VXA. Ecrix has packaged two VXA-1 tape drives in a single rack unit (1u), creating a data-protection system for rack-optimized servers and storage. RakPak stores up to 132GB of data at a 12MB/s aggregate transfer rate (2:1 compression). The VXA RakPak guarantees data restore based on three complementary components: discrete packet format (DPF), variable speed operation (VSO) and OverScan Operation (OSO). VXA drives are compatible with all major OSes including Linux.

Linux NetworX products are now available with Gaussian 98, the latest in the Gaussian series of electronic structure applications. Gaussian is used by chemists and chemical engineers for research. Users can model chemical systems and phenomena in order to predict their properties, study chemical reactions and apply the fundamental results to their own investigations. Operating on a Linux NetworX cluster system, Gaussian helps users predict energies, molecular structures, vibrational frequencies and other molecular properties in both the gas phase and in solution, and can study both ground state and excited state molecular systems.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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