SourceKibitzer, an established resource for Java developers working in open source, recently added a free Bio Service for enhancing professional opportunities. The Bio Service creates an on-line “resume” that includes 11 objective achievement metrics related to both the developer and software created. These metrics allow developers to market their contributions and real-world skills accurately to the Open Source community. The service also includes the ability to network within a larger community where members learn, interact, collaborate and compare their skills and experiences with one another.
The new kid on the time-server block is Cepoint Networks' iS900 iSCSI NAS storage/time server system with GPS or atomic time synchronization features. Expandable to 24TB, the iS900 is designed to enable synchronized, precise backup timing for organizations with geographically dispersed storage locations that must be backed up at a precise time. In addition to the time-synchronization functions, the iS900 supports RAID levels 0, 1, 10, 5 and 50 and various built-in encrypted remote data transfer features. Other features include continuous data availability, clustering, remote data replication, backup and bare-metal recovery, remote boot over an IP network and more.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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