The crew at Fabric Engine built the new open-source Creation Platform—a framework for building custom, high-performance graphics applications—because they found off-the-shelf DCC applications not flexible enough for studios' needs. By providing the major building blocks for tool creation, says Fabric Engine, Creation Platform allows developers to spend less time building back-end architectures and more time building critical workflows and high-performance functionality into their tools. Fabric Engine took this approach in response to the rise of performance-hungry applications like simulation and virtual production. Because existing solutions are not keeping pace, says the company, studios have had little choice until now but to build from scratch to fulfill their creative requirements—something that is outside their core business. Key features of the Creation Platform include the Fabric Core Execution Engine for exceptional performance out of both CPUs and GPUs, modularity, extensibility and accessibility. Most Creation applications are built using Python and Qt.
As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.
Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.
In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
