08 Feb 2017 Flash! A-ah! He'll save everyone of us... from sluggish disk boxes [60489]
Nexenta, February 8th, 2017

Chris Mellor writes in The Register, "All-flash arrays are now the storage choice du jour for storing fast access primary data but have not been used for storing secondary data, such as unstructured data, ordinary files and just-in-case disaster recovery (DR) data. But change is coming, driven by cheaper flash drives and the realisation that fast access to secondary data is, obviously, better than slow access..."

07 Feb 2017 Supermicro boasts of secret super server Silicon Valley win [60503]
The Register, February 7th, 2017

Chris Melloer writes in The Register, "Supermicro says it has shipped 30,000-plus servers into a 'Fortune 100' company's Silicon Valley data centre.

The company said its customer had deployed that number of disaggregated MicroBlade systems at "one of the world's" highest density and energy efficient data centres. The data centre has a Power Use Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.06, which, Supermicro says, compares to a traditional data centre running at 1.49 PUE, or more, so the new data centre is 88 per cent better in overall energy efficiency terms.

There is a total 35 megawatt IT load..."

06 Feb 2017 Javapocalypse soon! Oracle warns devs to bin plugins, fast [60525]
The Register, February 6th, 2017

The last browser to support NPAPI plugins - Firefox 52 ESR - should appear in March

Simon writes in The Register, "Oracle's warned developers who still expect browsers to run code developed for Java plugins to get busy finding an alternative.

The developers behind all major browsers have decided the NPAPI framework invented last millennium by Netscape has had its day, because there are now better ways to do multimedia and other fun stuff inside a browser. Chrome therefore binned plugins in 2015, IE gave up ages ago, the fat lady sang at Opera during 2016 and Safari has stopped bothering too..."

The Register, November 24th, 2016

"Microsoft has released a public preview of SQL Server for Linux, and I took it for a spin, writes Tim Anderson in The Register.

"There are three supported platforms for SQL Server on Linux, these being Red Hat Enterprise 7.2, Ubuntu 16.04, and a Linux-based Docker engine. Installation on other versions of Linux may also work, although unsupported. The Docker image enables installation on Mac or Windows. Microsoft specifies a minimum of 3.25GB of RAM..."

04 Dec 2016 Stay Out of My Server Room! [58508]
The Register, November 23rd, 2016

"We always design our data centres and server rooms with the best of intentions," opines Trevor Pott in The Register. "A nice, enclosed space with excellent ventilation and air conditioning, sufficient power points to ensure circuits are never overloaded, and enough space to get at both the front and back sides of the rack - ideally all cordoned off into its own room so nobody has to listen to the noise or be perpetually chilled to the bone.

Of course, space is at a premium in today's economy. Leases are far from cheap, and many SMBs would like to use every extra square inch of space for products or raw materials instead of spare parts for IT..."
