Releasing beta code for porting ZFS to Linux
KQ Infotech Pvt. Ltd. is a globally focused software development and consulting firm headquartered in Pune, India, with core expertise in the field of systems and storage. Being a pure technology company, KQ believes in applying innovation to evolving technologies, the resultant of which is some highly ground-breaking products like ZFS port to Linux. We are also due in coming up with our products in the field of virtualization.
KQ’s expertise in kernel programming and deep understanding of file systems has enabled it to take up the task of porting ZFS to Linux for the open source community. After dedicated effort, we have finally reached the beta stage of the port and are now making the much awaited and discussed code available for the selected beta customers. Please log on to the website zfs.kqinfotech.com to apply and register yourself through the beta form in order to get the code for testing. Once you fill the form, one of our representatives will be contacting you to assist you with the proceedings and arrange an interactive one on one demo with our ZFS expert.
As we are selecting a batch of 25 beta customers from different testing environments, please await your turn. To allow proper support bandwidth for beta customers, we have limited the batch to 25. We would be increasing the bandwidth as and by the beta matures. We are in the process of selecting our first batch of customers, so please register yourself through the form now.
Thank you all for your continued support and interest.
Practical Task Scheduling Deployment

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
