E-mail 101


The first e-mail programs were created in the late 60s/early 70s—simpler times, when everyone on the network was trustworthy. Even knowing what we know today about spammers, we still tend to take e-mail for granted, and trust it far more than it deserves. Learn about the components of the e-mail system, understand how e-mail moves on the Internet, and find out how to interpret e-mail message headers.

distributed caching  System (DNS) provides a distributed database for converting names to IP addresses. It uses caching to improve performance. There are different types of DNS records; two that control mail delivery are the Mail Exchange (MX) and Address (A) records. The MX record names hosts that will accept mail for a specific domain, and A records provide the IP addresses of named hosts. SMTP, the SimpleMail Transfer Protocol, is used to send email. It provides no authentication and any aspect of an email message can be Read More

Surf's Up at Akamai


Akamai has unveiled a killer IPO in a mere 14 months. Its innovative product called FreeFlow delivers website content at stellar speeds. Will it be able to deliver revenue at the same speed it can deliver content?

distributed caching  Size and Scope: Wide-area distributed content delivery capacity is a factor of a number of variables: cpu power, RAM/cache, routing algorithms, and number of distribution points. Having deployed over 1,700 servers globally, Akamai has a 25% lead on distribution points over Sandpiper Networks. The more distribution points a content delivery vendor has, the more accurately it can determine the most efficient connection for a website query. When comparing performance monitoring capabilities, Akamai has Read More

Informatica Morphs into Enterprise Decision Support Vendor


Informatica Corporation, long an established vendor in the Extract/Transform/Load (ETL) market space, has morphed themselves into a vendor of solutions for the "e-Business infrastructure". In conjunction with their contract to build an enterprise data warehouse for the United States Postal Service and their MX2 metadata exchange initiative, Informatica is reinventing itself.

distributed caching  widely known as a distributed file system, was developed by Sun. It can be used to make files appear to be on the local machine when they are in fact somewhere else on the network. Metadata: Data that describes other data. Table and column names are examples of metadata. Metadata for a relational database system is stored in a Data Dictionary. Schema: The definition of an entire database. It defines the structure and the type of contents that each data element within the structure can contain. Schemas Read More

Online Interactive Virtual Environment (OLIVE): A Multi-user, Virtual-world Software Platform


Virtual worlds are created for a range of purposes, including support for various industries and applications. These worlds require a distributed client-server architecture allowing applications to scale from a single-user application to a large-scale environment. However, if your developers are going to concentrate on the application of virtual environments, the hard technology problems need to be solved in advance.

Anatomy of a Technology Selection


Dell Computer Corporation spent millions preparing to deploy an ERP system before realizing that the solution to one set of issues created a more severe problem. Note based on discussion among Michael Dell, Kevin Rollins, and Morten Topfer of Dell Computer Corporation and Dell’s Platinum Counsel of customers.

Metadata Standards in the Marketplace - Why Do I Care? (And Where Does Godzilla Fit In?)


Metadata (“data about data”) is essential for data warehousing. Metadata standards allow different products to interact. Without standards, different vendors’ tools cannot work together seamlessly and the customer’s warehousing effort is greatly complicated.

distributed caching  becomes extremely cumbersome. Ideally, distributed metadata repositories could dynamically exchange information and keep each other synchronized. This would greatly reduce the customer's workload and ensure correct metadata across domains and life cycles. (Note: currently, even tools from the same vendor may not be able to share metadata). Standards In order for metadata to be useful, it must be represented in a format the data warehouse tool can understand. It must also be accessible to the tool. Over Read More

Affordable Content Filtering for any Business, School, or Library


For today’s organizations, Internet access is a must-have. However, when they decide to open the door to the World Wide Web, the good—along with the bad—enters the network. Spyware and viruses can be distributed onto the network from untrustworthy web sites. In order to protect the best interests of the organization, an effective Web content filter is required.

Enterprise Application Integration - the Latest Trend in Getting Value from Data


Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) is one of the hot-button issues in IT for the Year 2000. Information Week Research's survey of 300 technology managers showed nearly 75% of respondents said EAI is a planned project for their IT departments in the coming year. According to a survey conducted by Bank Boston, the market for EAI is expected to be $50 Billion USD by 2001. However, successful EAI requires a careful combination of a middleware framework, distributed object technologies, and custom consulting.

Many vendors have evolved out of the middleware space, and some are coming from the Extract/Transform/Load space. It remains to be seen what approach will provide the most value for a new EAI product. Many of these products are refashioned middleware tools. Vendors are attempting out of the box solutions, but there is immense complexity involved in integrating applications, particularly extended supply chain, e-commerce, Read More
