Google Snaps Up the Father of the Orion Search Engine

According to Australia's Sydney Morning Herald, the 26-year-old Israeli-born student Ori Allon - a University of New South Wales doctoral candidate - has not only successfully created his own search engine, called Orion; he has also succeeded in having himself (and the engine's all-important algorithm) be snapped up by Google. Allon's research project, "RichProlog, a System for Deducing, Inducing and Learning in the Declarative Programming Paradigm" was aimed at what the Sydney Morning Herald summarizes as "improving the relevance of responses to a search - and displaying a more detailed taste of each file so users can better decide if it is what they need." Allon, who was born and raised in Israel before coming to Australia in the mid-90s and becoming an Australian citizen, told the newspaper from the Google headquarters in Mountain View, CA, that he certainly hopes...

TechEd 2009 Next Week in LA. See You There!

TechEd 2009 is less than a week away so get ready for a fresh new stream of Windows Azure news. Check out the available sessions, and notice how many are related to Windows Azure and Cloud computing in general.  Bill Veghte, senior vice president of the Windows Business, will be kicking off TechEd next Monday, May 11. If you’re on Twitter, you can follow and contribute to the chatter at TechEd using hash tag #Teched09. You can follow me as well for a fresh look at the new cloud technologies. I’ll be around there talking to people, I already have scheduled a few interesting meetings. I won’t be attending any sessions though, I got an expo pass this year (unless somebody will sponsor me the last minute ), but from previous conferences experience, I learn more on the floor talking to people than sitting in a conference room through a presentation I will find later anyw...

How Long Does it Really Take to Get Indexed by Google?

It seems like just a few years ago it took Google forever to index a new URL and website. Well maybe not, but for anyone working on Internet marketing it felt like it took Google forever to index a new URL. Things have changed and Google is different these days. Remember the Six Million Dollar Man intro? “We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was before. Better. Stronger.” That’s what I think of Google. Google is better. Okay I may have just dated myself with the analogy, but Google reminds me of the TV show intro. Google is better, stronger, and much faster. If you submit a brand new URL and website to Google via Google’s Add URL option and follow up with a XML sitemap through Google’s Webmaster Tools, the main URL is indexed within 24 hours. Actually, my latest website submission was indexed within about 18 hours. The entire w... (more)

Unix Co-Creator Writes New Open Source Programming Language for Google

Open Source Journal on Ulitzer Ken Thompson (pictured) and Rob Pike, a couple of the revered old soldiers who wrote Unix, Plan 9 and Inferno at Bell Labs – and programming languages like B, without which C probably wouldn’t exist, and Limbo – have come up with an experimental new programming language called Go that Google, their current refuge, open sourced Tuesday under a BSD-style license. If it catches on, it would be the first major systems language to emerge in a decade. One of the small Go team compares it to Java, calling it “performant but garbage collected” and “vastly more enjoyable to code in.” Go’s primary attribute appears to be that it’s fast. It reportedly compiles to machine code very quickly thanks to a couple of Plan 9-beholden compilers. Google says “Go combines the development speed of working in a dynamic language like Python” – Google does dot... (more)

WANdisco's Agile Software Development

SOA & WOA Magazine on Ulitzer WANdisco announced that an increasing number of its customers are implementing Subversion MultiSite and Subversion Clustering to support agile practices across their large distributed development organizations. At the core of agile software development is constant collaboration between developers and continuous build integration. These customers found that a centralized server or even a proxy-server architecture was unable to effectively support agile software development with Subversion. Agile development’s primary objective is the frequent delivery of working code. In practice this imposes two key requirements on a development organization: (1) there must be constant collaboration between developers and; (2) continuous build integration that is fast, automated and reliable must be in place. Central server or master–slave solutions suc... (more)

CloudEXPO Stories
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
Machine learning provides predictive models which a business can apply in countless ways to better understand its customers and operations. Since machine learning was first developed with flat, tabular data in mind, it is still not widely understood: when does it make sense to use graph databases and machine learning in combination? This talk tackles the question from two ends: classifying predictive analytics methods and assessing graph database attributes. It also examines the ongoing lifecycle for machine learning in production. From this analysis it builds a framework for seeing where machine learning on a graph can be advantageous.'
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
