Huge Supercomputers Still Exist. Here’s What They’re Being Used for Today

Timofeev Vladimir/Shutterstock Supercomputers were a massive race in the 90s, as the US, China, and others all competed to have the fastest computer. While the race has died down a bit, these monster computers still used to solve many of the world’s problems. As Moore’s Law (an old observation stating that computing power doubles roughly every two years) pushes our computing hardware further, the complexity of the problems being solved increases as well. While supercomputers used to be rea...

Red Hat Rejects MongoDB's 'Discriminatory' Server Side Public License

An anonymous reader quotes ZDNet: MongoDB is an open-source document NoSQL database with a problem. While very popular, cloud companies, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), IBM Cloud, Scalegrid, and ObjectRocket has profited from it by offering it as a service while MongoDB Inc. hasn't been able to monetize it to the same degree. MongoDB's answer? Relicense the program under its new Server Side Public License (SSPL). Open-source powerhouse Red Hat's reaction? Drop MongoDB from Red Hat Enterpris...

A Red Hat-backed open source project warns that a controversial new plan to take on Amazon and other tech titans is only causing 'Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt' (MDB, RHT)

Fedora, a popular open source operating system sponsored by Red Hat, has rejected MongoDB support. MongoDB recently changed its license in a defensive move against having its code monetized by cloud titans like Amazon Web Services — but Fedora says that the new license just causes "Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt" for users. Red Hat itself has dropped MongoDB support in its flagship Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system, saying that the new license places an unreasonable burden on customers ...

How Golden State Foods is reinventing the beef supply chain

Americans love beef. In 2016, American beef consumption was the fourth highest in the world per capita, and four times higher than the world average. But for many Americans, how exactly that beef gets to their plate is a mystery.  Tracking precisely what happens to beef from farm to fork in near real-time isn’t easy for any company. That’s because, more so than most products, the beef supply chain is highly segmented. Before a hamburger lands on a customer’s plate, at least half a dozen busines...

Are you in good voice?
