Last week, the Fedora ppc64 team announced the availability of their beta for Fedora 19. The announcement can be found at -> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F19_PPC_Beta_release_announcement Please take the time to read the announcement fully through as both the ppc64 and x86 announcements point out specific gotchas for Fedora users.
As for the ppc64 beta, I’d like to point out and expand on a few notable items in the bet…
Thanks +Anirban Chatterjee who shared this on twitter. I guess that opting for RISC for Hadoop processing goes beyond the (so far obvious?) performance advantage. If you're making a big investment in a cluster, I bet that you'd also like it to keep working and have parts available through a longer lifecycle, right?
There’s some re-thinking by HPC (high performance computing) vendors about which hardware delivers the best processing for big data payloads tha

I have one more session tomorrow, this time with real-time translations since I don't take pride in my "Portuñol" 🙂
Our LTC colleague +Tiago Mello blogs about the need of a stable, powerful and standardized API to protect your Cloud investment
openstack public API Sometimes I use a website during a shopping day like Black Friday, yet when I need to fill out a form I am not the only one doing so. The result is obvious; the system gets unstable, slow and it may go down for temporary period of time. It turns out to be very frustrating …
has anyone been able to use blu-ray menus on XBMC 13 (nightly ~git20130501) running on Linux (ubuntu 12.10 64 bit)?
Even though I've installed libbluray I haven't had ANY luck with ANY blurays (.iso but also exploded BDMV)
Am I missing something?

The IBM Advance Toolchain for PowerLinux repositories are moving to a new host.
Users of the IBM POWER Linux Tools Repository will be automatically moved to the new repositories and don’t need to change their environments. But users that have manually configured the old repositories need to add the new ones in order to keep receiving updates of the Advance Toolchain. It isn’t necessary to remove th…
