The Eventide VR778 is a digital voice logging and archiving system, designed for use in health and public safety environments. Able to work as a standalone logger using a front-panel GUI or as a network server for PC workstations, the VR778 provides fault-tolerant features, such as dual hot-swap power supplies, fan assemblies and dual redundant hard disks. Anywhere from 8-160 analog and 16-96 digital record channels can be mixed in one VR778. Variable recording compression rates range from 13.3 to 16, 32 and 64Kbs. A mirrored RAID 1 system with dual-120GB hard disks (380GB RAID 5 optional) can record and store up to 19,800 channel hours at 13.3Kbs. DVD-RAM drives also are available.

AMD has announced that its eighth-generation enterprise class processor core, named Opteron, will use x86 64-bit technology. Providing high-level performance for both existing 32-bit x86 code and new 64-bit computing, Opteron is designed to support applications requiring large amounts of physical and virtual memory, such as high-performance servers, database management systems and CAD tools. Opteron also employs HyperTransport technology, a high-speed, point-to-point link for integrated circuits that reduces I/O bottlenecks, increases bandwidth and reduces latency. An integrated memory controller is used to reduce memory bottlenecks.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
