Compute-intensive workflows are the environments in which the newly developed JMR SiloStor NVMe family of SSD drives is designed to show its colors. more>>

SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension

Historically, data replication has been available only piecemeal through proprietary vendors. In a quest to remediate history, SUSE and partner LINBIT announced a solution that promises to change the economics of data replication. more>>

OpenPOWER

Three EU Industries That Need HPC Now

The success of High Performance Computing (HPC) relies in no small part on the OpenPOWER Foundation, which was founded in 2013. The reason this open ecosystem is so important is that it provided members open access to the IBM POWER8 technology, which resulted in huge advances in innovation. more>>

LUCI4HPC

Today's computational needs in diverse fields cannot be met by a single computer. Such areas include weather forecasting, astronomy, aerodynamics simulations for cars, material sciences and computational drug design. This makes it necessary to combine multiple computers into one system, a so-called computer cluster, to obtain the required computational power. more>>

Jailhouse

Because you're a reader of Linux Journal, you probably already know that Linux has a rich virtualization ecosystem. KVM is the de facto standard, and VirtualBox is widely used for desktop virtualization. Veterans should remember Xen (it's still in a good shape, by the way), and there is also VMware (which isn't free but runs on Linux as well). more>>

High Performance: a Relative Term

My Pebble watch has several orders of magnitude more power than the mainframe computers used by NASA to land astronauts on the moon an more>>

High-Availability Storage with HA-LVM

In recent years, there has been a trend in which data centers have been opting for commodity hardware and software over proprietary solutions. Why shouldn't they? It offers extremely low costs and the flexibility to build an ecosystem the way it is preferred. The only limitation is the extent of the administrator's imagination. more>>

Readers' Choice Awards 2014

It's time for another Readers' Choice issue of Linux Journal! The format last year was well received, so we've followed suit making your voices heard loud again. I couldn't help but add some commentary in a few places, but for the most part, we just reported results. Please enjoy this year's Readers' Choice Awards! more>>
