In preparation for my C++Now talk entitled The Future of Accelerator Programming in C++ I am currently reviewing numerous C++ libraries. I put together a catalogue of questions for these reviews. The questions are intended to gauge scope, use-cases, performance, quality and level of abstraction of each library.
The social-networking company AddThis open-sourced Hydra under the Apache version 2.0 License in a recent announcement. Hydra grew from an in-house platform created to process semi-structured social data as live streams and do efficient query processing on those data sets.
In February 2014, RightScale conducted its third annual State of the Cloud Survey, asking 1,068 technical professionals across a broad cross-section of organizations about their adoption of cloud computing. This year’s survey on cloud computing trends found that public cloud adoption is nearing 90 percent on the journey to hybrid cloud.
Last April, we launched public dashboards that visualize real-time energy and water efficiency in ourOregon and North Carolina data centers. We’re proud of our data center efficiency, and we wanted to demystify data centers and share more about what our operations really look like.

Big Data and Hadoop clusters involve heavy volume of data and in many instances high velocity in bursty traffic patterns. With these clusters finding in-roads in enterprise data centers, the network designers have a few more requirements to take care. Listed below are 10 parameters to evaluate while designing a network for Big Data and Hadoop cluster.
The NVIDIA® CUDA® Toolkit provides a comprehensive development environment for C and C++ developers building GPU-accelerated applications. The CUDA Toolkit includes a compiler for NVIDIA GPUs, math libraries, and tools for debugging and optimizing the performance of your applications.
I seriously doubt you could have missed the 2nd part of this, but here’s the shortest executive summary: • Intel has killed its own distribution of Hadoop — is there anyone that would disagree this is...
The NYPL recently made over 20,000 historical maps from its database free to access, download, and use. The library's Lionel Pincus & Princess Firyal Map Division created an entire website called Map Warper where users can create an account and access all the maps, which are available courtesy of Creative Commons.
WebScaleSQL is a collaboration among engineers from several companies that face similar challenges in running MySQL at scale, and seek greater performance from a database technology tailored for their needs.
Our goal in launching WebScaleSQL is to enable the scale-oriented members of the MySQL community to work more closely together in order to prioritize the aspects that are most important to us. We aim to create a more integrated system of knowledge-sharing to help companies leverage the great features already found in MySQL 5.6, while building and adding more features that are specific to deployments in large scale environments. In the last few months, engineers from all four companies have contributed code and provided feedback to each other to develop a new, more unified, and more collaborative branch of MySQL.
