Ubuntu 9.10 Will Feature Cloud Computing

Mark Shuttleworth, the founder and leader of Canonical Ltd., the authors and distributors of the Ubuntu distro of Linux, announced the code name of the new version Friday and noted that the Ubuntu team had several priorities, including the design of the system’s “look”, according to a CNET article. The most interesting of the priorities, perhaps, was the inclusion of cloud computing features as a basic part of the package, especially on the server side of the release. The statement released by Shuttleworth was very detailed, although somewhat metaphorical, in the area of cloud computing. The cloud computing section of the release reads as follows, in its entirety: "A good Koala knows how to see the wood for the trees, even when her head is in the clouds. Ubuntu aims to keep free software at the forefront of cloud computing by embracing the API’s of Amazon EC2, and m... (more)

APM vs NPM. 2nd Round K.O.

Round Two – Last time I wrote a blog comparing APM versus network-based APM tools, which I still consider NPM at it’s core regardless of what some critics and competitors claim. Let me make one thing clear though, NPM is great for equipping IT network administrators to see how fast or slow data is traveling through the pipes of their application. Unfortunately, network-based APM tools simply cannot provide App Ops granular visibility into the application runtime when isolating bottlenecks go beyond the system level and it’s final destination – the end user’s browser. I find several of the blogs and YouTube clips from such NPM vendors quite comical as they try to throw punches at APM companies. Their arguments are centered primarily against agent-based approaches being an inadequate APM solution due to today’s fickle and distributed application architectures. It’s n... (more)
