Interview with GridGain

GridGain provides a computational grid framework. These days, CPUs are increasing in performance by adding more cores, rather than MHz. While, this may continue to fulfill Moore’s Law, the development of multi-core applications is becoming an increasingly complex and difficult problem. GridGain alleviates this by providing a powerful framework to address these issues. Here is … Continue reading “Interview with GridGain”

Interview with GigaSpaces

GigaSpaces owns an amazing set of technologies. They have created a general-purpose, infinitely-scalable, application platform. This is an incredibly difficult problem to solve, but they have managed to solve it. In other words, they provide Google-like technology for the rest of us. Here is an exclusive interview with Geva Perry, Chief Marketing Officer, at GigaSpaces.

Brittle Machines

by Lauren Nicole Computers are brittle machines. If a single CPU or hard drive dies the entire system dies and productivity grinds to a halt. This can be caused by anything from an electrical surge, a mechanical failure, a virus attack, or any number of issues. This is especially true for many home computers. While … Continue reading “Brittle Machines”

Computers are brittle machines. If a single CPU or hard drive dies the entire system dies and productivity grinds to a halt. This can be caused by anything from an electrical surge, a mechanical failure, a virus attack, or any number of issues. This is especially true for many home computers.

While a lot of people think that this can be a minor setback or inconvenience, they often don’t realize the full impact until an event like this occurs to them. Then, they realize they can’t get to their files! They can’t access their programs, documents, music, movies, and pictures. If the data cannot be salvaged, they lose everything! That is an expensive price to pay for a broken machine.
