You can feel the trembling emanating from Redmond after Open-Xchange's announcement of its newly GPL'd Open-Xchange Community Edition (OXCE). Open-Xchange calls OXCE “the only remaining independent open-source alternative to Microsoft Exchange” and offers the necessary tools to facilitate communication and teamwork: e=mail, calendaring, contacts, tasks and document sharing. The company further cites its intuitive tools and intelligent features, such as smart links between calendar appointments, task lists, contacts, documents, bookmarks, knowledge articles and Ajax-based mashup capabilities by Netvibes' Universal Widget API (UWA). Initially, OXCE is available for Debian and Ubuntu, with additional Linux distribution support coming later.
If downtime ain't an option for your database, Sybase hopes you'll deploy its new Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) Cluster Edition. The technology enables enterprises to deploy database environments across shared servers in a cluster, which offers the added benefit of optimal service through events such as system failures, peak loads and planned maintenance. In addition, Sybase's product allows for savings in hardware and power costs through optimal resource utilization. Another technology, Virtualized Resource Management, supplies application workloads with a virtual view of the physical cluster that can be changed dynamically on demand. ASE Cluster Edition is available for Red Hat and SUSE Linux, as well as 64-bit Solaris.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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