GridGain Systems has upgraded its namesake Java-based open source middleware
platform for real-time Big Data processing.
Unlike complex, decade-old SQL, ERP or Hadoop ETL systems that use dead data
for batch offline processing, the new GridGain 4.0 will process live data so
businesses can get meaningful results faster from low-latency real-time
transactional and analytical processing.
By comparison GridGain CEO Nikita Ivanov claims Hadoop is only good for
long-term historical storage. GridGain is more like "Big Data 2.0."
Anyway, the widgetry has added:
Big Data Anywhere capabilities with native lightweight clients for Java,
.NET, Python, PHP and C++ as well as native clients for the two largest
mobility platforms, iOS and Android. Native language support for Java, Scala
and Groovy programming languages. A Monitoring and Management Console for
large-scale grid topo... (more)

HOUSTON, August 3, 2009 - Saint Arnold Brewing Company (www.saintarnold.com),
the oldest craft brewery in Texas, today reported record production of nearly
13,000 barrels during the first half of 2009. The increase reflected growth
of market share for the brewery within the Texas market. Saint Arnold had a
major distributor switch in February of this year that gave the brewery
access to more retailers within existing markets.

same Northwest Houston facility. Today, the brewery is operating at full
capacity 24 hours a day while reconstruction continues on a historic building

brewery's new home before year end. The new facility will immediately double
Saint Arnold's brewing capacity and will have an ultimate capacity of up to... (more)

Violin Memory, the high-speed flash memory array maker, quietly filed its
papers with the SEC last month to go public according to Bloomberg, which was
quoting "two people familiar with the matter."
It puts Violin's possible valuation at near $2 billion. At least that's what
Violin's apparently negotiating for.
It's all kinda hush-hush because Violin, like Workday, which IPO'd
brilliantly last week, is making use of the recently enacted Jumpstart Our
Business Startups (JOBS) Act that lets wannabe public companies keep their
plans and financials secret until three weeks before their roadshow - hence
To qualify under the JOBS Act companies have to have annual revenues of less
than a billion dollars. Violin is understood to have sales of about $100
Violin has raised at least $172 million in venture backing and when it took

I’m a partner in two companies – an IT consultancy Farata Systems, and
SuranceBay - a 3 year old startup where we’re creating a software for
insurance industry. Brian Morton, my partner at SuranceBay who knows
everything about insurance wrote a blog delivering a message that Steve Jobs
formulated in one sentence: let’s give our clients not what they want, but
what they need. The wording may not be 100% accurate, but the message is.
When three years ago we created that startup our software engineers knew
nothing about the insurance industry. Brian knew nothing about software.
Actually this is not true. He knew how computers were used by the small
insurance agencies. He knew intuitively that these processes could be
improved, which he explained in a 200-page long business plan. We’ve
created a partnership using a tiny initial amount of an investor’s capital,
which w... (more)

For a long time, Bill Gates and in fact the entire leadership team at
Microsoft were vehemently against the open source community. Steve Ballmer
had once called Linux “a malignant cancer” in reference to Linux
allegedly violating nearly 235 patents that Microsoft owned. Even
post-retirement, Bill Gates had once picked on open source claiming that this
model creates a license that prevents anybody from improving the software.
“I think if you invent drugs, you should be able to charge for them,”
he had said.
But Microsoft, and the entire gamut of B2B service providers, have come a
long way since then. Today, the company has embraced open source and while
Microsoft products are themselves not open-source, the company has been
actively contributing to open source projects like Node.js and Hadoop.
So why did Microsoft turn a corner with open source? And why is it importa... (more)
