IBM lowers mainframe costs with specialty processors

,----[ Quote ]
| The IFL specialty processor runs Linux 
| applications, while zIIP focuses on databases and zAAP on 
| Java.


VXL adds low-cost thin client for virtual desktops

,----[ Quote ]
| Available now, the Itona TC1330 includes VMware View 3.1 and 
| Linux virtual desktops with its Sylph-OS operating system.


VMPs - Virtual Machine Practices

,----[ Quote ]
| Most of the following relates to using XP Pro as host. As 
| soon as you feel comfortable using Ubuntu or some other 
| Linux as host do it since you will see a performance 
| increase in the VM.


ScaleMP certifies on Intel Nehalem iron

| By comparison, the 1,024-core Altix 4700 Linux super from 
| Silicon Graphics could handle an order of magnitude more, at 
| 4.1 TB/sec of bandwidth. This machine uses 1.6GHz, dual-core 
| Itanium 2 processors. A 64-core Power 595 machine from IBM 
| (using the dual-core Power6 processors running at 5GHz) can 
| deliver 787 GB/sec, or a little less than twice the vSMP 
| setup, while a Sun Microsystems and Fujitsu M9000 server 
| with 128 cores (using the quad-core Sparc64-VII processors) 
| hits 222 GB/sec. An Integrity Superdome machine from 
| Hewlett-Packard, equipped with dual-core Itanium 2 chips and 
| a total of 128 cores, delivers 167 GB/sec of bandwidth on 
| the Stream test.



The New Windows vs. Linux Debate

,----[ Quote ]
| It's entirely probable that in the near future, the heterogeneous
| data center will have a different meaning, referring to both
| hypervisors and operating systems and no specification of which is
| meant will be needed.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
