Neon makes IBM z-series glow

,----[ Quote ]
| For IBM, the mainframe has gone through a bit of a renaissance, as such systems 
| have become more cost effective, required less management resource, have 
| standardised at the hardware and software levels and have also opened up to be 
| able to run Linux as well as IBM's own z/OS (nee MVS). But the biggest change in 
| mainframe direction has been the launch by IBM of "specialty engines" - separate 
| processor units that allow specific workloads to be offloaded from the mainframe 
| central processors, and run on lower-cost specialty processors run within the 
| mainframe.


South Korea inks $40m deal with Cray

| What neither Cray nor KMA discussed was how this future box would be 
| configured. The XT5h super deploys the Cray X2 vector engines on blade 
| servers and allows it to hook into the XT interconnect that was pioneered 
| with the "Red Storm" Opteron-Linux super made for Sandia National Laboratory 
| and commercialized as the XT3, XT4, and XT5 lines.



The World Wins South Korea for Firefox

,----[ Quote ]
| And if you're wondering why it matters anyway that the South Koreans should
| be able to use Firefox and other "non-standard" browsers - don't you just
| love that description? - it's because the country's users have some of the
| fastest broadband connections in the world; that means that new applications
| based on such connectivity may well emerge there first, so it's important
| that open source be available and viable for all kinds of uses.
