2011/03/29 03:48 Richard Donovan LMU Munich - Cluster Experimentation with Apple Tv High Performance, multi core multi cluster experimentation can have high hardware costs and prove a serious barrier to entry. Enter the Munich University Apple TV Cluster project that aims to share and discuss software related to building collaborative, distributed computing using low cost low power Arm based processors. , , ,
2011/08/02 14:05 Richard Donovan pNfs - Something Tasty Baked into the New Linux 3 Kernel I totally missed that pNfs got baked into the new Linux 3 Kernel. PNfs or Parallel Network File System is a huge boost in Network File system access. While the headlines often get written by micro second performance increases in micro processors users (or programs) often wait seconds for data to be loaded of disks. , , ,
2012/02/07 14:07 Richard Donovan $25 Raspberry Pi Linux box outperforms iPhone 4S GPU Some times good things come in small packages. We've loved the idea of the low cost Pi Linux box since it was announced. The promise of allowing people to create the next generation of technology that is muti-core clusters and smart networked was really compelling. , , , , ,
2012/07/30 01:24 Richard Donovan 192 Core Server that Consumes only 5 watts of power!! Boston Viridis have started to ship the create a rack mountable 2U server cluster that uses the ARM® based Calxeda EnergyCore™ SoCs (Server on Chip). This server comprising 192 processing cores leading the way towards energy efficient hyperscale computing. , , ,
2012/09/12 08:59 Richard Donovan Southampton University build a Raspberry Pi Cluster While the media may be calling this a 'super computer'. The Pi Cluster built by Southampton University will not be breaking any benchmark records. It does however provide a valuable low cost model to develop clustered and parallel computing for students and engineers. It also demonstrates how low power Arm is eating into new markets including now the educational space. , , , , ,
2012/10/08 05:01 Richard Donovan Oracle Demos MySql 7.3 Cluster with Node.js and Nosql Oracle demo'd the MySQL Cluster 7.3 at the MySQL Connect conference. MySql is often the leading edge of Oracle's DB development and interestingly they have introduced integration with the open source Node.js JavaScript server. , , , ,
