Comtrol Corporation says its new RocketLinx ES7506 industrial managed PoE plus switch “changes the game when it comes to where you place your devices”. Designed for applications such as IP surveillance, security and transportation, where power sources are not conveniently located, the RocketLinx ES7506 offers four Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) ports delivering up to 30 watts and supporting the new IEEE802.3at standard. “When setting up an IP camera or wireless access point, for instance”, says Comtrol, “you can choose the optimum location for the application, versus mounting the device closest to an available power source”. Tasks such as configuring ports, rebooting a failed device or implementing green power scheduling can be controlled via SNMP, Web interface or the included RocketLinx NetVision management software. Additionally, the switch features two uplink ports that support redundant ring network topologies, which enable network failure recovery at less than five milliseconds.
Brethren map freaks should download the new version 1.9 of gvSIG, a free and open-source desktop Geographic Information System (GIS). gvSIG is designed for capturing, storing, handling, analyzing and deploying any kind of referenced geographic information, in both vector and raster formats, in order to solve complex management and planning problems. Version 1.9 sports a range of new features, including improved symbology and labeling, enhanced raster handling, geoprocessing with line layers, table joining, new data transformation tools and additional languages (US English, Brazilian Portuguese, Turkish, Russian, Greek, Swahili and Serbian). gvSIG is available for Linux, Mac OS and Windows platforms.
WSO2 recently announced the launch of its WSO2 Cloud Platform, which it calls “the industry's most comprehensive platform for extending a service-oriented architecture (SOA) into cloud computing”. The new WSO2 Cloud Platform features a family of WSO2 Cloud Virtual Machines. WSO2 SOA products are available as WSO2 Cloud Virtual Machines running on the Amazon Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2) or as VMware ESX virtual machines. Further, WSO2 Cloud Connectors enable IT developers to provide fast, secure cloud services. And finally, the multi-tenant WSO2 Governance-as-a-Service empowers IT professionals to manage governance in the cloud. All WSO2 Cloud Platform services are based on open software standards and support applicable interoperable protocols and relevant open data standards.

Free Webinar: Hadoop
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
