Asetek develops liquid-cooled all-in-one desktop PC prototype

All-in-one PCs have been classified as "kitchen PCs" or "mom PCs" because they emphasize a space-saving form factor and ease of use over performance. That hasn't stopped Asetek, best known for creating budget liquid-cooling kits that companies like CoolIT and Corsair sell, from developing an all-in-one desktop prototype that receives a blast of water cooling.

Jumping robots for space exploration?

According to a team of engineers at the University of Bath, "jumping is a good way to move over rough terrain, and is considerably easier to design than walking." reports that this is why they've designed two jumping robots inspired by animals. They think that their two new robots, Jollbot and Glumper, will help astronauts to during future space missions. As one researcher said, "the cost per kilogram of launching something into space is very large, so jumping robots, which are likely to be light in weight to maximize their own performance, are ideally suited from that perspective." Of course, such robots would also be useful to explore any other places involving traversing rough terrains such as volcanoes.

EMC upgrades Celerra file server

Storage giant EMC has upgraded its Celerra File Server, a device that enables fast access to files and data stored over computer networks, with larger capacity and other improvements, the company said Thursday. The Celerra Data Mover 510 product lets 14 file servers be ganged together, providing a total of 52 terabytes of storage space that collectively can handle 224 direct network connections. In addition, Celerra supports several high-end software features at EMC, including replication of file systems in case of emergency and protection against network failure. The product also natively supports Windows 2000, has a software to ease configuration, and can have its data backed up without a performance drop. --Stephan Shankland, Special to ZDNet News

Break those bottlenecks: Performance test your network with Iperf

Getting a grip on network performance numbers is one of the most difficult tasks for network managers. Unlike many information technology statistics such as disk space utilization and available memory, network performance is a very subjective issue--what's slow to you might be a zippy network to someone else.

Linux cluster for performance computing

A wave of linux clustered machines has been anticipated since 1994, when the Goddard Space Flight Center produced the first Beowulf cluster. Though superior in price/performance, tools to make the environment more manageable are only becoming available.
