  • Data Center Networking Performance: New Apps Bring New Requirements

    Large cloud services providers such as Amazon, Google, Baidu, and Tencent have reinvented the way in which IT services can be delivered, with capabilities that go beyond scale in terms of sheer size to also include scale as it pertains to speed and agility. That’s put traditional carriers on notice: John Donovan, chief strategy officer and group president at AT&T technology and operations, for instance, said last year that AT&T wants to be the “most aggressive IT company in the world.” He noted that in a world where over-the-top (OTT) offerings have become commonplace, application and services development can no longer be defined by legacy processes.

  • Google's Networking Lead Talks SDN Challenges for the Next Decade
  • Peace, love and SDN

    Virtualization has been a blessing for data centers – thanks to the humble hypervisor, we can create, move and rearrange computers on a whim, without thinking about the physical infrastructure.

    The simplicity and efficiency of VMs has prompted network engineers to envision a programmable, flexible network based on open protocols and REST APIs that could be managed from a single interface, without worrying about each router and switch.

Supreme Court makes it much harder for patent trolls to sue in East Texas

LXer - Tue, 2017-05-23 13:19
In a unanimous decision, the justices held that the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which handles all patent appeals, has been using the wrong standard to decide where a patent lawsuit can be brought. Today's Supreme Court ruling in TC Heartland v. Kraft Foods enforces a more strict standard for where cases can be filed. It overturns a looser rule that the Federal Circuit has used since 1990.

Can I run multiple Xorg instances on one video card at the same time?

Reddit - Tue, 2017-05-23 13:08


I want to set up a multiseat computer. I would like to know if it is possible to run an Xorg instance for each of the outputs of my video card? I mean to run one Xorg server for VGA, one for DVI, one for HDMI, but they are on the same video card. Some multiseat sulutions are not good for me, since I want hardware graphics acceleration.

The eternal battle for OpenStack's soul will conclude in three years. Again

LXer - Tue, 2017-05-23 12:05
After six years as a formal project, OpenStack has survived numerous raids and famines and now finds itself in a not-too-weird space of being boring, on-premises infrastructure.
