IP was Middle School, Named Data Networking is College

Van JacobsonNamed Data Networking Project

Van Jacobson: “In vocabulary terms, IP is like a good middle school education. There’s a lot of things you can say and communicate in society but it’s not so great for writing a poetry volume or a thesis… The real goal of NDN was to get us into college.”

Much of the Named Data Networking (NDN) project codebase is still at the Version zero-dot-something level. But things are nevertheless starting to get real for this content-centric architecture designed to blast past today’s host-based and point-to-point Internet scheme to one more suited for accessing applications across hugely scalable networks that are mobile and extend to all sorts of sensor-equipped things.

IBM chases Intel with new Power-based Linux servers sold over the Web

IBM is gunning for a slice of Intel’s x86 server chip business with a new family of Power systems that run Linux and will be sold directly to customers over the Web.

The LC family of servers, which went on sale Thursday, is aimed at organizations deploying clustered or cloud environments, particularly for running Hadoop, Spark and other workloads that involve crunching large volumes of data.

IBM already sells Power servers running Linux, but these new boxes differ in a number of ways, and mark the latest effort by IBM to expand its Power platform into new markets, said Stephanie Chiras, director and business line executive for scale-out Power systems.
