The stock market has been under the impression that somebody will come in and challenge Intel for Wind River. Intel said last week that it was buying the embedded OS house for $11.50 a share. The stock has been up over that price ever since. Some analysts have encouraged the punters to think that maybe, say, IBM could come in, like an EMC-NetApp-Data Domain halo effect. It's subsiding now. ... (more)

Wiring up the Internet of Things with Node-RED

Node-RED created in an IBM laboratory (UK) is a GUI for wiring up the Internet of Things (IoT) built-on Node.JS. It is possible that some of you have known, or used LabView. LabView  is a GUI for wiring up complex laboratory equipment like Voltage sources, measuring instruments, automated relays, rf generators, lasers, robots etc., but Node-RED is some thing similar for IoT but lot more extensible network-wise. Of course my knowledge of LabView is not current and you may find more information from National Instruments. Source: http://iotsolutionsalliance.intel.com/member-roster/national-instruments Get a quick overview of Node-RED here: http://nodered.org/ Node-RED is a browser based visual tool for creating flows of events and deploying to its lightweight runtime. It is developed as an open source project on GitHub under Apache License. It uses JSON format. The bac... (more)

HP Adds New Itanium Servers

Remember those HP Itanium servers that Oracle didn't want to write any more software for because Intel secretly planned to end Itanium development? Well, HP's got new ones based on a new Itanium chip, dubbed the 9500, made by Intel, which claims to be committed to the silicon and its customers past 2013. Intel's even managed to line up a new customer for Itanium, a Chinese outfit called Inspur. Itanium customers are thin on the ground. HP's the biggest - even after sales plunged something like 20% because of Oracle's pullout - and include NEC, Hitachi and Bull. Of course, HP sued Oracle and the court ordered Oracle to start writing, a decision Oracle has promised to appeal. HP in turn wants $4 billion in damages, less for its hardware losses than the juicy support and services contracts that brought in something like 15% of its profits. And since it's expecting fu...

Mobile Middleware for the Enterprise Buyer | Part 1

With the trends of consumerization and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) acceptance, enterprises are increasingly seeking to securely integrate tablets and smartphones into their environments.  Meanwhile, external customers and partners desire mobile apps that provide on-demand, self-service alternatives to traditional consumer web portals.  Mobile middleware can ease this integration, providing a consistent framework and set of interfaces for a wide range of applications and data sources.  This is the first in a series of posts intended to help the enterprise IT buyer to better understand the benefits of mobile middleware, as well as to make an informed decision when choosing among the many products in this space.

VCE Revisited, Now and Zen

Yesterday VCE and their proud parents announced revenues had reached an annual run rate of a billion dollars. Today VCE announced some new products along with enhancements to others. Before going forward though, let's take go back for a moment to help set the stage to see where things might be going in the future. A little over a three years ago, back in November 2009 VCE was born and initially named ACADIA by its proud parents (Cisco, EMC, Intel and VMware). Here is a post that I did back then. BTW the reference to Zen might cause some to think that I don't how to properly refer to the Xen hypervisor. It is really a play from Robert Plants album Now and Zen and its song Tall Cool One. For those not familiar, click on the link and listen (some will have DejaVu, others might think its new and cool) as it takes a look back as well as present, similar to VCE. On the... (more)

Guest Post from Mobility Expert Peter Rogers - JavaScript Cross-compilation Mobile App Development

If you are a mobile geek or are dreaming of being one, then here is your opportunity to indulge with Cognizant's mobility expert, Peter Rogers (Peter-2.Rogers-2@cognizant.com). Recently Famo.us made a big announcement around offering their own PhoneGap alternative using a WebView that could use Chrome instead of the Stock Android Browser. Android 4.4 (KitKat) actually offers this out of the box now but it is actually Chrome 30 which isn’t quite up to the same feature set of Chrome 33. That means no WebGL or WebRTC, which is a real loss. There are also no plans to roll ChromeView to older versions of Android and the open source project with this intention has considerable issues at this stage, which is a shame. Famo.us plan therefore to bundle Blink (Chrome 33) with Apps in order to offer WebGL and other improvements to Wrapped Web Apps. The downside is of course the... (more)
