While a tribute Apple's innovative leadership, it takes a company with Apple's innovation
Caching provides persistent business data and volatile session data from memory instead of from database and/or disk access. This improves performance. Clusters of application servers also provide performance and scalability. The two techniques clash as one application server's cache is not in sync with others' caches. A solution for
...one area where Cloud really helps Just as hardware became irrelevant a few years ago, we are about to make the operating system irrelevant with cloud computing. Servers were commoditized and put in farms, and their resources used and re-used with virtual machines. Ubiquitous open source software and maturing web
While implementing Enterprise 2.0 social and collaboration platforms for enterprises, this question invariably pops up: What control processes do we need to put in place? The answer is not quite straightforward. The extraction of knowledge and its accumulation and organisation has to be as easy and seamless as possible,
...applying a node-based approach This analysis relates to the concept commonly known as “knowledge transfer” within the corporate world. It is also applicable to collaborative distance learning. A Knowledge Worker as a “Node” If a knowledge worker is just one node of a network, then logically, the knowledge context would

Abstract: Describes the main points of difference between UDP and TCP as a transport for application development. When should one be chosen over another and why? Provides some examples. For high-perfomance native apps. UDP and TCP in application development The popularity and ubiquity of the UDP/TCP/IP protocol stack
UDP traffic should not affect TCP connections when there is a contention for bandwidth. What is TCP-Friendliness? UDP and other continuous streaming transports are becoming more common on the Internet as multimedia, telephony and P2P applications start to use larger and larger portions of available bandwidth. One of the better
