Linux Journal Contents #182, June 2009
What comes only once a year and you get a present? No, it's not your birthday, it's the Linux Journal Readers' Choice Awards. Check them out and see if your favorites won. And if the Readers' Choices don't give you enough to choose from see our Cooking With Linux column (back this month after a one month hiatus) for an overview of a host of other open source apps. And the goodness doesn't stop there, we also have articles on Dojo's grid widget, on SNMP and Nagios, on building your own cluster, on adding HTML validation to your test suite, and on a spate of other topics to soothe your open source gland.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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