Announcement of the Linux Piter conference

1 year, 10 months ago
All of us anyway work with systems on the basis of Linux. Only we see them under a little different corners. For one it is product platform which already became usual and reliable, for others — opportunity quickly to wear out to themselves new products and technologies, being integrated by jumps, for the third — combination of work and the fan of participation in universal party of professionals.

Linux based use systems engineers in the big companies, thoroughly aware tiny nuances of kernel of system, feature of versions of packets, the sea of configuration parameters, scripts and small highlights of subsystems, the developers who are responsible for integration of infinite SaaS of systems, and their testing.

The small highly specialized companies in twenty-thirty people, do the finished products at us in the country, and huge world corporations, maintain similar functionality, but already at other level, efforts of hundreds of developers. Crowd of enthusiasts of the movement Open Source and Software Engineers on the other hand. It is anyway interesting to all as as occurs in huge infrastructure under the name Open Source that occurs actually, from the technical and technology aspect without marketing that is important for acceptance of daily solutions — naked information is simply necessary. And it is always interesting to look, than neighbors in the industry are occupied.

Interestingly – come! We do not collect announcements of fresh versions of products, we do not call speakers who will tell about the reputable companies.

We want to know that inside and where it develops.

1 year, 11 months ago
The term "hakaton" in IT community did not hear today, probably, only the lazy. That it for "animal", is known by slightly less participants of the market. And even less people really took part in hakatona and can be proud of that have survived in their rigid realities. And here that such internal hakatona of the companies, ordinary developers almost do not know. In this sense only the few specialists were lucky, in whose companies similar events were held.

We want to tell that such internal hakaton and as it is best of all to organize this sign event. And it, believe us, it will become obligatory sign in life of your company.

Archives and spiral of history

1 year, 11 months ago
About the prompt growth of information volumes, generated around the world, it is told at every turn. Usually remember it when the speech comes about network infrastructure, client content, search technologies and many other things. The same situation is observed and in corporate segment: volumes of the stored information repeatedly grow in the majority of the organizations. According to the report of Forrester Research, about 85% of data in enterprise systems are represented by static content which already will never change. Various requirements of the authorities and regulators oblige to store the organizations different information for some years (for example, information on all clients and the made transactions, etc.). As a result business should spend considerable funds for ensuring storage of this information, being put in park of servers, SHD, acquisition of software, etc.

The desire of many companies to have opportunity to carry out the analysis and search in all available volume of accumulated information has turned out to be one more consequence of growth of volumes of the stored data. Since certain moment such task turns into problem of processing of Big Data. As a result, there is need of search of solutions, it is more suitable for storage and work with similar arrays of information. Therefore many look for more favorable solutions for storage of similar arrays of information and work with them.

The example of the Nokia company which has recently sold the mobile division of Microsoft is curious. According to terms of the contract, Finns had to give to the new owner all information archive of division. Considering large volume of data, in Nokia have approached it creatively: the compact system of archive storage in which database have filled in all necessary information has been acquired, and then all this system entirely have simply sent to Microsoft.

Approach of era of hyper convergence

2 years ago


One of principal directions in evolution of IT systems is the aspiration to compactness, universality and ease of use. One of examples? development of computers. They have passed evolution stages from the huge piece systems of tens cubic meters intended for very limited circle of tasks to universal personal computers and servers. Personal computers, in turn, too changed, finding more and more opportunities, becoming unifitsirovanny on element base more well in mastering, having passed way from garage assembly to the systems collected from standard components, and, as a result, to rather inexpensive powerful devices of factory assembly with the set software completely ready to work from box. Similar processes, with certain amendments, proceeded and in many other industries. Did not become exception and the equipment for creation of industrial infrastructure.

2 years, 3 months ago
Fumes, and what you want to tell this heading?

Last week I had a discussion with the Japanese partners on the program defined storages. Discussed what EMC does in this direction, and also shared thoughts on the fact that it is necessary to do to partners. It is interesting that they were completely concentrated on business cases of application of a sheaf "software + the server of general purpose". It seemed, they even found differences of these models from others where I did not see distinctions at all.

And in a week before – when I was in Australia – I had a set of talk with clients on scenarios of deployment of Hadoop. In particular, it was talked of when it makes sense to use for this Isilon. All clients thought equally: to take a distribution kit and to proinstallirovat it on box servers. First they could not accept idea in any way that the solution based on Isilon can be better, is more productive and are cheaper. But after all they to it came.
