Traverse Technologies released the NETspider-U ISDN card for Linux. The NETspider is a fully integrated internal modem card providing high-speed ISDN access to the Internet, intranets and on-line services. It eliminates the need for an external ISDN router/modem, and allows a Linux machine to be a router/firewall/gateway with connectivity at 64, 128 or 256KBps. Benefits are its fast and efficient HTML sessions; downloads and file transfers supporting PPP, ML-PPP and RAW IP protocols; support of the US NI-1 ISDN switch protocol; easy installation and low cost. NI-1 HiSax drivers are available for Linux 2.0.36 and 2.2.x kernels.

Quadron's qCF for Linux is a software development toolkit for ARTIC communication cards installed in Linux servers or workstations. It enables users to create an exact solution for their communication requirements. They can run async, bisync, HDLC or custom variations on a Linux/ARTIC system. The ARTIC card has its own on-board processor, making it a dedicated programmable communications computer that resides within the Linux computer system. The toolkit comes with a real-time analysis tool for debugging and gathering performance data, as well as communication statistics gathering facilities for error detection and correction. Three PCI-bus ARTIC cards are available for qCF for Linux: ARTIC186 8-Port PCI Adapter, ARTIC186 Model II ISA/PCI Adapter and ARTIC X.25 ISA/PCI Adapter.

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
