DevOps: How Does Intel Optimize Opensource Software for Big Data Operations?

As we all know, “Big Data” means information that overwhelms conventional information systems because of its volume, velocity and variety. Big Data technologies ingest and process Big Data, and deliver results.

Updated Android* on Intel Platforms Device and System Developer Resource Center

Check out the updated Device and System Developer Resource Center for Android* on Intel Platforms!

Chip Shot: Intel-Based MinnowBoard MAX to Further Embedded Open Source Design released MinnowBoard MAX, a new low-cost embedded development platform for Linux and Android based on Intel® Architecture (IA).

DevOps: How do Intel and Red Hat cooperate to improve cloud computing?

Intel and Red Hat provide proven solutions for mission-critical enterprise computing, while ensuring a flexible, open foundation for innovation and growth. Customers can inject higher value into their core IT solutions incrementally and with confidence, and they can move toward end-to-end virtualization—and ultimately cloud computing—on their own terms.

Open Source Success, Part 1: Motivation to Create a Project

Considering a community? Wondering what to do and what to expect? Thiago Macieira, who has worked in open source for 15 years and has been a community manager and contributor to Qt and Tizen, provides the first in a series about community best practices to help you get started.

Bringing SIMD to JavaScript

In an exciting collaboration with Mozilla and Google, Intel is bringing SIMD to JavaScript. This makes it possible to develop new classes of compute-intensive applications such as games and media processing—all in JavaScript—without the need to rely on any native plugins or non-portable native code.

DevOps: Is Performance/Watt the Most Important Thing?

Every benchmark I’ve seen shows Intel® Atom™ C2000 family-based microservers beating 64-bit ARM SoC-based microservers in performance/watt. In fact, even dual-socket Intel® Xeon® E5 family-based servers seem to beat them—not just in performance, but in performance/watt. What’s more important in cloud data center infrastructure?

DevOps: Why Should You Develop SDN and NFV Solutions?

Software Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization are so important--by the end of 2015, Intel estimates there will be three billion connected users with 15 billion connected devices. Data growth is exploding, and networks struggle to keep up.

Crosswalk 101: The New HTML5 Application Runtime

Crosswalk is an HTML application runtime, built on an open source foundation. It extends today's web platform with new capabilities, empowering applications written using web technologies.

DevOps: Is Cloud Computing a 21st Century Reversion to Host/Terminal Computing?

In this eighth installment of the DevOps blog, I turn from datacenter infrastructure issues to a more philosophical topic--the benefits and risks of centralized versus distributed computing.

DevOps: How do you deploy Hadoop* to maximize productivity while limiting energy consumption?

Hadoop* often is at the heart of a Big Data analysis infrastructure, and DevOps blog #2 highlighted key considerations for optimizing Big Data analysis. In this seventh edition, I’ll drill-down into Apache* Hadoop deployments.

Tux Radar Interview: Kaveh Nasri, Intel Open Source Driver

TuxRadar's Chris Thornett interviews Kaveh Nasri about Intel's extensive work on the open source driver that enables us to play games on Linux.

These Women Are Building The Software That Quietly Runs The World

The Open Source Technology Center is home to top talent in the open source community -- but we are always proud when others take note. A Business Insider article posted Feb. 9 profiled nine women in Linux development "who are building the software that quietly runs the world."

DevOps: Can Memcached scale to handle rigorous SLAs?

In this sixth blog in the DevOps series, I’ll continue to focus on open source software developers who also run and support that code, perhaps for a cloud services provider (CSP). Memcached should be familiar to DevOps teams who work with dynamic Web pages—it is an open source, multi-threaded, distributed, Key-Value caching solution commonly used for reducing service latency and traffic to database and computational servers.

KVM in Intel’s OpenStack-based Private Cloud

Intel IT began researching open-source private cloud in mid-2011. This came about just as a large multi-year project to virtualize most of the OVM office and enterprise physical computing assets was just finishing successfully. Open source looked like the place where it would really happen (and it continues to be that place)

DevOps: Does the processor matter for server-side Java* applications?

In this blog, I’ll look at advancements of the latest Intel® Xeon® processors and Intel® Atom™ C2000 processors that benefit Java* applications and strategies used to optimize JVM software.

DevOps: How well do OpenStack* workloads run on microservers?

In this fourth blog of the DevOps series, I’ll highlight workloads running on the OpenStack* cloud operating environment. Can today’s microservers deliver the necessary performance and performance/watt?

Intel & Red Hat* OnRamp Workshops for OpenStack

Intel and Red Hat* have rolled out the “OnRamp to OpenStack” workshops in the first quarter of 2014, beginning January 30 in Prague, Czech Republic. See what other cities and dates are planned.

DevOps: Configuration and Deployment of the Cassandra* NoSQL Data Store

Big data workloads vary from compute-intensive applications to I/O-intensive operations. In this post, I’ll highlight both lighter workloads using Intel® Atom™ SoC-based microservers, and heavier workloads using Intel® Xeon® processor-based dual-socket servers.

DevOps: Big Data Analysis Usage Models Using Apache Hadoop*

Welcome to my second DevOps blog post. In my last blog, I discussed a key DevOps requirement: innovate without disrupting datacenter operations and infrastructure.In this blog we will look at usage models to help you implement a flexible and efficient big data infrastructure.
