Netpliance Responds Quickly to Hardware Hack


Off to a rough and tumble start, Netpliance's stock fell 18% by its third day of trading due to a security exploit. However, don't expect the rough start to thwart sales. Though the "NC' flopped four years ago, the time is right and the market is ready. The Netpliance and it's i-Opener™ service will have Granny on the net by the end of the year.

Market Impact Upon report of the exploit, Netpliance's stock dropped $4.00 a share as it became apparent that the incredibly low-priced device could be used without using the i-Opener Internet service at all. Should shareholders be concerned about this exploit? In the long-term, this won't affect Netpliance's market cap, even if it did create a rough and tumble beginning for the new service provider. All Netpliance has to do is strengthen Read More

IA-64 Linux From Red Hat


Red Hat announces the availability of the source code for IA-64 platforms, the first of which will be Intel’s “Itanium” processor, due later this year.

High Availability in Workload Automation


When designing a software system, the possibility of long-term downtime—due to hardware, operating system, or software failure—often gets neglected. For workload automation software, ensuring high availability by having a single point of control for the scheduling and setup of your enterprise workload can be a distinct advantage, ensuring that your software system stays available to its users even when there are hardware or software problems. Beyond system failure and data protection, workload automation solutions can also minimize the risks that result from process chains, manual input, or undocumented dependencies. Read this white paper to learn more about the importance of high availability in automation.

QLogic vs. Emulex 4Gb Fibre Channel HBA: Performance in Windows Environment


Organizations need lower ownership costs for hardware. But that’s not all. They also need a protected infrastructure investment, and applications that perform the way they need them to, when they need them. To meet these demands, enterprise storage area network (SAN) users must deploy a scalable host bus adapter architecture that addresses cost, performance, backward compatibility, and—most importantly—future scalability.
