Your future data center – is it bigger than a breadbox?

Your future data center – is it bigger than a breadbox?

These are dog years for servers.   Pretty much every year Intel introduces a new Xeon processor.  Those who have heard the story recognize this as the Tic Tock model.  On Tic years the manufacturing process is updated, on Tock years the chip architecture is updated.  Every year customers get a boost in performance, and often a cut in power.  Typically this boost is in the 50% neighborhood, enough to make it worth the upgrade, and still achievable by engineering teams on a two year cycle.  Except, we are in dog years.

The Nehalem During this same five years we have seen virtualization technology go from a lab project AND servers are 10X faster.ot only can you virtualize the ERP, you are irresponsibly wasting resources if you do not.If this advancement wasnThenew biggest leap ever.It isn.breadbox

Visual Studio 2008 “DataDude” Duplicate Menu Items

Visual Studio 2008 “DataDude” Duplicate Menu Items

I discovered yesterday that within Visual Studio 2008 there were now duplicate menu items on the Data menu and also on the context menu when editing TSQL. It appears that the duplication of the menu items is caused by somehow having both the base release of the "datadude" components along with the more recent GDR release installed at the same time.

It seems, after a brief search of the blogosphere, that this is easily resolved by running the following command with elevated privileges on a 32-bit version of Windows after closing all instances of Visual Studio.

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\DBPro\DBProRepair.exe" RemoveDBPro2008

and on a 64-bit version of Windows:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\DBPro\DBProRepair.exe" RemoveDBPro2008

Once Visual Studio is opened again the duplicate menu issue should be resolved.

Can Web 2.0 save the world?

Can Web 2.0 save the world?

Remember the age of Web 1.0? Back when it took all night to download one song on a 57k dial-up? Today we have broadband and iTunes and dial-up is a distant memory in the era of Web 2.0. According to Tim O’Reilly and John Battelle, organizers of the upcoming Web 2.0 Summit, “To understand where the Web is going, it helps to return to one of the fundamental ideas underlying Web 2.0, namely that successful network applications are systems for harnessing collective intelligence, meaning that a large group of people can create a collective work whose value far exceeds that provided by any of the individual participants.” Like for example, the Web 2.0 intersection of volunteer computing and social media that is Progress Thru Process (PTP). I wrote about the PTP Facebook application six days ago when it had just over 127,000 fans. Today it has 129,596 fans. All the fans who have downloaded the PTP application are donating their spare CPU cycles to power humanitarian research. Their collective CPU power ranks in the top 250 of the world’s supercomputers. PTP is a demonstration of how Web 2.0 provides people like you and me, one by one, the collective power to do something, amazing.
