Storix Backup Administrator (SBA) version 4.0 is available for system backup and recovery of most distributions and for x86- and PPC-based systems. Using a graphical interface, SBA provides backup management of standalone machines or entire networks. Options are available for backup scheduling, performance statistic reporting, overwrite and retention policies and tape striping, among others features. SBA can restore data on the same or a different hardware configuration, and you can recustomize your system by changing filesystem types, adding software RAID devices and converting to LVM partitions. All major filesystem LVMs and software RAID devices are supported.

Applied Microsystems entered the embedded Linux market with the release of CodeTEST for embedded Linux, a software test and analysis tool suite. CodeTEST enables developers to conduct comprehensive performance testing, memory testing, RTOS and source-code level execution trace, hardware tracing of kernel and driver code and code coverage on applications based on embedded Linux. CodeTEST can measure more than 128,000 real-time function executions at once, looking for errors in algorithms, call-pair distribution and service routines, and measures CPU consumed by functions and tasks. CodeTEST can be purchased as a complete suite of separate modules for performance, memory, trace coverage and advanced coverage.

Xeon processors will power Rackable Systems' back-to-back 1U 1800 model server. Rackable's 44U cabinets hold up to 88 1U servers and up to 176 Xeon processors. Rackable also will be using the following new Intel products in their servers: the SE7500CW2 server board, the SE7500WV2 server board and the SRSH4 server platform. The new server can be used in Rackable's patent-pending chassis, designed to allow for installation into both front and back of a standard 19" wide, 30" deep cabinet or both sides of a two-post “Telco-style” rack. The 1800 server comes with 8GB of memory, one to four HDDs, one PCI X expansion port and one or two 10/100/1000 Ethernet connections.

The GNOME Foundation released version 2.0 of the GNOME Desktop and Developer Platform, which features a faster and more powerful Nautilus file manager and dozens of new utilities and applications. A simplified configuration process also is in place for version 2.0. Included in this release are an enhanced GTK 2.0 toolkit, libxml2, add-ons for Glade, Python and CORBA, and many new libraries and widgets. Other improvements in the new version include anti-aliasing for fonts; a dynamic, centralized configuration system; rewritten terminal application with tabs and profiles; and a lightweight help application called Yelp, among many others.

The PCI-8213 and PCI-8214 are two- and four-port, 64-bit fast Ethernet cards with bypass capability that are suitable for use in firewalls, network traffic monitoring, on-line gaming, high-availability and Internet-dependent applications. With bypass capabilities, during crashes and downtime the onboard relays crosslink channels 1 and 2. Fail-safe data transmission is achieved by linking inbound and outbound network traffic, even when the hardware or software fails. Both boards run on a 64-bit, 33/66MHz PCI bus but also are compatible with 32-bit PCI slots. Each Ethernet port has two self-diagnostic LED displays to show link and 10/100 status.

Faximum Software has released Fax Messaging Server (FMS) version 2. Running on Linux, FMS 2 integrates with existing e-mail servers and enables Linux, Mac and Windows machines to send and receive faxes using the same tool as e-mail. FMS 2 allows users to combine e-mail addresses and fax numbers in the same message or e-mail group, delivers faxes to users in the same inbox as their e-mail, can bypass the long-distance phone system and is administered via the Web. Compatible with most distributions and most SMTP e-mail servers, FMS 2 has been designed to work with Caldera's Volution Messaging Server and the SuSE eMail Server III.

Free Webinar: Hadoop
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?
