What's a developer to do when a high-performance - but very small - database is needed for a project? FairCom believes that its c-treeACE family of navigational databases can be the solution.
Powered by Intel Xeon E5-2670 v2 processors, Amazon suggested that these particular instances are ideal for applications running on high-performance NoSQL databases and transactional systems.
Caching algorithms seem pretty arcane, but are very important for the overall performance of networks, databases and storage systems as a whole. Unfortunately, few understand how important they are. Fusion-IO's Lee Caswell talks about an update to the company's ioTurbine and its importance to accelerating virtualized environments.

Oracle Chairman and CEO Larry Ellison caught the Oracle OpenWorld conference audience by surprise the day before by rolling out the Exadata line of two hardware-software configurations. The integrated servers re-architect the relationship between Oracle's 11g database and high-performance storage. Exadata, in essence, gives new meaning to "attached" storage for Oracle databases. It mimics the close pairing of data and logic execution that such cloud providers as Google use with MapReduce technologies.
With better data reach and inclusion, come better results. So BI allows leaders can establish the trends early that will determine their future success or failures. In a fast-paced, global, hyper competitive business landscape these insights are the currency of success for the future. The better you do BI, the better you do business ... current, near-term and long-term. There's no better way to know your customers, competitors, employees and the variables that buffet and stir markets than effective BI.
Mary-Jo wanted to find the killer-apps of Vista, but I think I've found the killer applications for students. Regardless of educational establishment status, we have to consider multiple things in a killer-app (defined as an application which you essentially "must have"), such as open-source where possible, available across platforms, considerably save yourself time, increase productivity whether for social-downtime or performance-uptime, and most importantly - free.
The best ways to enhance performance and productivity with Windows are usually fairly simple. They don’t require registry edits or custom code; instead, they involve learning how the basic building blocks of Windows work, and then rearranging those components to cut steps out of the tasks you perform most often. Vista changed some of those building blocks, and many people are struggling because they’re trying to use the new tools with the old techniques. In that spirit, I’ve put together this list of my 10 favorite tweaks to Windows Vista. In Part 1 of a two-part series, I explain how to make the list of installed programs easier to work with and how to tweak the taskbar, the Start menu, the Quick Launch toolbar, and Windows Explorer. I also cover the most important time-saving technique for any user of any computer: how to create an easy, automatic backup routine that works.
Eric Mack is one of the most passionate adopters of technologies that improve productivity and performance. Don't miss his upcoming webinar in which he will show how he uses MindManager to manage projects, brainstorm new ideas, and support his Getting Things Done workflow.
PenCommander 2.0 has been launched around the Vista release and includes support for Windows Vista, which is timely since I plan to put Vista on my Q1 this weekend. PenCommander 2.0 also includes an updated scripting engine to allow for new user-level functions and improved performance, new customizable user interface for Visual PenCommander, new PenCommander skins, ability to select a handwriting recognition engine (important if multiple languages are used), and the ability to make the input panel semi-transparent so you can work on applications with PenCommander sitting on the desktop. IMHO, a gesture/shorthand command application like this is essential for UMPC and Tablet PC users as it improves productivity and makes using the pen a much more enjoyable experience.

The Millennium Hotels chain in New Zealand has saved about NZ$700,000 per annum by consolidating 21 databases into one, with a new storage area network (SAN) to boot. Prior to a centralised SAN, disparate storage solutions at its 19 hotels resulted in performance problems and system instability, and since reservations weren't replicated in real-time across all sites, there was only 40 percent accuracy in bookings.
Companies will fork out US$576 million this year for packaged software--mostly on productivity, OSes, databases and utilities, says analyst.
