At Least It Hasn’t Been Renamed Linux 2001
Linus Torvalds and the Linux community released another test version of the Linux 2.4 kernel in late May, 2000. New features are delaying this version which was

kernel  Torvalds and the Linux Kernel Archives released an unannounced test version of the 2.4.0 Linux kernel. As Torvalds remarked (in May 2000), It doesn't really exist yet. 2.4 was originally slated for October 1999 release. Industry observers now expect Linux 2.4 to be finished no earlier than year-end 2000. However, when asked about delays to Red Hat distributions of 2.4-derived products, Red Hat officials had no comment. Market Impact A nearly infinite number of penguins, eventually, can develop a great

Your Guide to OS Virtualization


Today’s information technology (IT) organizations are dealing with the consequences of exploding infrastructure complexity. At the root of the problem is uncontrolled server sprawl—servers provisioned to support a single application. Organizations that have implemented hardware virtualization have unwittingly created a new problem: operating system (OS) sprawl. IT organizations have to find ways to address this critical challenge—today.

kernel  server. Virtuozzo's patent-pending technology, Kernel Service Abstraction Layer (KSAL) , mediates activity to the kernel and prevents any single VE from taking the entire server down. Virtuozzo File System (VZFS) is a proprietary ile system that, ensures that a user cannot access any other VE or part of the server. Additionally, Virtuozzo has copy-on-write technology, which makes a local copy of anything unique in the VE. Lastly, the software also ensures performance isolation with a complete set of Read More

“Whistler” Beta on the Web?


Source code for a future Microsoft OS, code-named “Whistler”, mysteriously appeared on the Internet in mid-March. How did it get there? Does it matter? And why does Microsoft management keep making statements that are later retracted?

kernel  Windows onto the NT kernel will be a good thing for users. Although the NT kernel is not without faults, it is far more robust than the Win 9x kernel, and lack of robustness is one of the key complaints about Windows. The big caveat is Microsoft's tendency to either delay schedules, or de-feature the OS to remain on schedule, or both. Windows 2000 was a prime example of this. We think it prudent for customers to expect that Whistler will not be delivered when everyone is assuming it will be delivered. Read More

Spagic


Spagic 3 is universal middleware, characterized by an innovative approach to the management and development of service-oriented architecture (SOA) solutions, which are highly modular and configurable around an open service gateway initiative (OSGi) kernel. Spagic 3 can help users develop extensible solutions that offer the following features: platform independence code reusability for different goals and containers, such as J2EE, TP, ESB, BPM management of the life cycle of different business and infrastructure components configuration and start-up of single modules Spagic 3 offers a range of tools that support the management of SOA projects, including modeling support tools, services definition, development of forms to support users' activities, deployment control, connectors, business process modeling (BPM) engines, infrastructural services and containers, and a monitoring environment.

What Could Be Some New Frontiers for Large CAD/PLM Providers?


My attendance of Siemens’ two-day product lifecycle management (PLM) analyst summit in the late summer of 2011 was like trying to drink from a fire hose. Even without the plant automation and manufacturing execution system (MES) discussion (which was also included in the 2010 event), there was an abundance of products and related information, and I am still trying to wrap my mind around the main

With that said, with PTC’s recent release of Creo Simulate , PTC supports some modeling and Read More

Bentley Extends Commitment to Siemens PLM Software


The 3D computed-aided design (CAD) world continues to be co-opetitive. Many of the situations where fierce competitors end up using each other’s tools in their competing products are circumstantial, i.e., those products were using tools supplied by a software company before it was acquired by a competitor. For example, the Parasolid 3D geometric modeling kernel was developed

In any case, in support of its MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3) software products, Bentley Systems, Incorporated, will now add Parasolid Bodyshop, and D-Cubed Profile Geometry Manager (PGM), and expand the deployment of the JT Data Format. Bentley expressed its interest in the ability of Bodyshop to Read More
