- Rackspace: Shared Hosting on Borrowed Time « Data Center Knowledge – Rackspace Cloud general manager Emil Sayegh predicted that cloud computing will bring major change for the web hosting industry. “Over the next for five years, shared hosting as we know it will be made obsolete by the cloud,” said Sayegh. “I firmly believe it. What we need to think about is an environment in which cloud computing and dedicated servers coexist.”
- Intellipool Network Monitor v4 is released – After a full years worth of development time Intellipool Network Monitor version 4 is now available for download. Version 4 highlights include:
- IBM Press room – 2009-08-17 IBM Scientists Use DNA Scaffolding To Build Tiny Circuit Boards – United States – IBM researchers and collaborator Paul W.K. Rothemund, of the California Institute of Technology, have made an advancement in combining lithographic patterning with self assembly – a method to arrange DNA origami structures on surfaces compatible with today’s semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
- blog.dsa-research.org » Archives » Haizea 1.0 Beta 1 now available – Haizea can be used as a drop-in replacement for OpenNebula’s scheduling daemon, providing OpenNebula with more advanced scheduling capabilities such as advance reservations and queueing of requests when there are no resources available. The latest version of Haizea is the first of two betas on the road to Haizea 1.0. This beta includes several major new features:
- Blog Joyent | On Benchmarking Databases: MySQL on Joyent versus AWS (part 1) – Last week we announced the MySQL accelerators and scalable architecture offerings. Like the Zeus Accelerators, this is a continuation of our goal to offer individual servers and entire architectures of known performance. What one really wants from an entire infrastructure is for it to simply do what you need it to do. Not to be 50x servers with 4GB of RAM each with something something CPU, and blah blah drives.
- Wary of public cloud, CIO builds private cloud and transition plan – Many CIOs are holding off on putting their public cloud computing services pilots into production mode, but the ability to spin up services and swap out resources quickly is leading some to develop private clouds with an eye on tapping external providers later, when providers are more mature and issues like security and privacy have been worked out.
- Google App Engine for Java: Part 2: Building the killer app – Summary: The whole point of a cloud platform like Google App Engine for Java™ is in being able to imagine, build, and deploy professional-quality killer apps that scale — without breaking the bank or driving yourself insane. In this second part of his three-part introduction to Google App Engine for Java, Rick Hightower takes you beyond the ready-made examples of Part 1 with a step-by-step guide to writing and deploying a simple contact-management application using App Engine for Java.
- cloud-computing-standards_ISPAB-Dec2008_P-Mell.pdf (application/pdf Object) – Great presentation from NIST if you haven't seen it.
- The Dasein Cloud API – (another) promising approach? « Bosom of Abraham – Today i found a promising news article about another Cloud API (The Dasein Cloud API – O’Reilly Broadcast). I became aware of this article because Georg Reese is behind this project. He wrote the excellent book Cloud Application Architectures – I can highly recommend it. The Dasein Cloud API is supported by enStratus, a company founded by Georg Reese. The Dasein Cloud API project site is hosted at sourceforge.
- No More HP ESXi “Embedded” – I don’t know what is going on at HP these days, I really don’t. Either the VMware / HP relationship is souring a bit, or HP have appointed an imbecile in charge of their side of the deal.
