The greening of Apple OS X – Mother Nature Network
OS X 1.6 solves that by allowing developers to create multithread software — software that can unlock the power of new multicore processors by letting one chip serve many tasks. When a thread for one program is not needed, that energy is diverted for use by another program.
The new solution will increase the visibility of customers’ data centers by using small sensors to offer 24-hour monitoring of power and cooling distribution, helping customers to reduce inefficiencies and energy consumption, and increase data center capacity.
The sensors then take these results and sends them back to HP’s Environmental Observer visualization software.
With VMware View, we are able to move to a ‘zero footprint’ device, reduce power consumption and provide our emergency staff department an always on and available desktop,” Kane Edupuganti, director of IT operations and communications for the hospital, said in a statement. “We plan on continuing desktop virtualization across nearly 5,000 endpoints in order to maximize ROI in areas outside of IT.”
Root access enabled the attackers to wipe out large portions of the data on all of VAServ’s hosted U.K. and U.S. Websites, the reports say. About half of VAServer’s customers had not signed up for the provider’s backup service, and in some cases their data might never be recovered, the reports say.
Rackspace lays out its cloud computing roadmap: Think hybrid – Between the Lines – ZDNet Blogs
When finished, Moorman sees customers mixing and matching technologies with the cloud. For instance, VMware and a company’s database may live on a dedicated server, but Web apps and archiving might be offloaded to the cloud. The key is to make these platforms operate seamlessly. “When finished it (this hybrid approach) will automatically link your private network to cloud securely so it looks like one seamless network,” said Moorman. Simply put, some applications like enterprise resource planning software, are likely to stay on dedicated computing resources.
