Continuing on its mission to improve open-source-based software development, Black Duck Software recently released several new elements in its Enterprise Code Search Initiative. The code search initiative involves three phases: expansion of open-source code available at Koders.com, release of Black Duck Code Sight Enterprise Edition and Free Edition for enterprise code search and an open integration framework initiative for community expansion of integrations with source code management systems. Koders.com is Black Duck's free code search Web site that has been expanded to access more than 2.5 billion lines of open-source code. Black Duck Code Sight is a tool offering enterprise-level code search capability that can index and make software searchable across multiple source code repositories for local or geographically distributed development teams. Finally, the open integration framework offers built-in integration for IBM Rational ClearCase, Subversion, Git, Microsoft Team Foundation Server and other code management systems.
The new Gluster Storage Platform combines the GlusterFS filesystem with a new user interface and operating system layer for massively increased performance and improved ease of use. Gluster says that its product allows one to “deploy petabyte-scale storage on industry-standard hardware in just 15 minutes with centralized management and automated maintenance”. It works by clustering together storage building blocks, aggregating disk and memory resources and managing data in a single unified namespace. Advantages include low storage cost, high scalability, no bottlenecks (thanks to the lack of a metadata server) and virtual storage for virtual servers.

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
