Microsoft Readies Win2K Datacenter for Defeaturing
Microsoft has started telling the world that the Datacenter version of Windows 2000 will not only be delayed, but also is not yet scaling up to 32-processor

unix uptime  effect on Unix sales. Unix (except for Linux) has been losing market share to Windows-based OSes for some time now, Datacenter should accelerate that trend. The features - on paper - indicate that it will be a serious contender, even without the built-in market share of Windows. Assuming Microsoft actually gets the 32-CPU version really working (as opposed to just saying it works, but planning for it to be fixed in Service Pack 1 or 2), we expect this will suppress demand slightly for Datacenter. The

Intel Server Trends


The Intel-based server market is one of the most hotly contested segments in the industry. What are the key trends in this market, and what will they mean to users, vendors, and the products themselves?

unix uptime  ways to that of Unix in general. We expect consolidation to start by the end of 2000. We also expect Red Hat (currently owning approximately 65% of the commercially-available Linux market share) to be one of the survivors - no surprise there. Although Corel's Linux distribution is supposed to be the easiest to load, plus able to run Windows applications, it is a desktop-oriented product, so we don't include it in our assessment. Vendor Unsurprisingly, hardware vendors waited until 1999 to provide Linux Read More

Compaq's Alpha - Moving Toward Its Omega?


Compaq's powerful Alpha processor is reaching a crucial juncture - will Compaq expend the effort necessary for it to challenge Intel's dominance, or is it destined to become another Betamax (great technology with no market)?

unix uptime  a Unix-only system. Although Unix is not dead/dying, NT has passed it in quantity of licenses. Alpha will survive at least another three years (90% survival likelihood), but its prospects diminish after that (30% survival likelihood after five years), unless Compaq can turn things around in the next 12 months. Users should take these factors into consideration when deciding on a technology platform.

IBM’s Newest NUMA-Q Server to Handle 64 Intel CPUs


IBM announced its latest NUMA-Q server, the E410. Its ability to house up to 64 Intel CPUs represents a doubling of the “largest” current system, the ES7000 from Unisys, and an eight-times increase over the largest current mainstream Intel offerings from Compaq, Dell, and HP.

unix uptime  is better than HP's Unix offerings (at least, of the ones tested to TPC-H). In a more mainstream package, these figures would help IBM/Sequent (IBM purchased Sequent for their NUMA-Q offerings/architecture) gain sales volume and market share. One caveat: the five 9s uptime comment in the press release mentions customers working closely with IBM to achieve these figures. This implies that the average Joe will not necessarily achieve those results. IBM should provide figures from customers who Read More

NoSQL for My BI Solution?


Every day business intelligence (BI) gets closer to chaos. Don’t get me wrong—I’m by no means saying that BI will one day become obsolete and that you'll need to avoid it at all costs. On the contrary, what I mean is that BI will have to go outside the box into a world where data is not nicely structured within well-defined databases and using Structured Query Language—best known as SQL

This means that NoSQL databases don’t necessarily work with only unstructured data, but rather that they are more versatile than traditional database schemas and can work with a variety of data types. NoSQL databases also don’t necessarily need to work with fixed sets of tables, registers, and fields. A number of NoSQL databases are available in the Read More

Logility, IBM to Offer Mid Market Solutions on AS/400


IBM and B2B collaborative supply chain planning vendor Logility, Inc. have partnered to offer a joint solution for the AS/400e server platform.

unix uptime  little demand exists for Unix among its chiefly mid-market customers. The deal should give Logility a foothold within IBM's substantial mid-market AS/400 customer base. Of course, IBM seems to be helping just about everyone in the supply chain management space. It recently announced a similar AS/400 partnership with i2 Technologies, Logility's main rival. i2 offers a broad slate of supply chain management products, but primarily targets large Fortune 500 clients that have proportionally large IT budgets.

IBM Server Line Redrawn


IBM has continued its renaming binge, moving from PCs to servers.
