IBM will support leading NoSQL MongoDB API through DB2

Excellent news that IBM is working to support the MongoDB API through DB2, a very important move to converge and support the NoSQL paradigm, which a lot of emerging OpenSource and web applications are starting to adopt.

IBM developers can now write apps using MongoDB’s query language to interact with data stored in DB2 and WebSphere, and vice versa, giving IBM’s tech greater use and relevance in an age dominated by cheap or free solutions. IBM will preview support of MongoDB’s JSON-oriented query method in DB2 …

Hi Folks,

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

The STG Technical Enablement Conference in Buenos Aires is going very well.
Talking about PowerLinux was easy and drove a lot of interest, specially after Mike Gebele, VP PureSystems, gave his keynote also mentioning the importance of Expert Integrated Systems, Cloud Computing and LINUX as important growth initiatives.

I have one more session tomorrow, this time with real-time translations since I don't take pride in my "Portuñol" 🙂

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 …
