Cloud Computing on Ulitzer "If we look at cloud (service) in a global sense, not just as my service or your service, or my country or your country, then IPv6 is part of the future and the solution." (Bert Armijo, SVP 3tera) IPv6 is hitting everybody in the Internet industry on a global scale. 3tera recognized early in the evolution of cloud products that IPv6 was critical for long term, and short term development of their AppLogic product within both public-facing Internet services, as well as cloud deployments within the enterprise. The need is real. The IPv4 Reality 3tera Faced The Internet operates with devices connecting to each other on a global scale. Each device, wither a physical switch, server, or computer, has an address. Each application, piece of data, and content is located in the Internet through use of an address.

A Swift Kick to the IPv6 Backside

The institutional horror stories continue, the old Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) address space is nearly gone, and if we do not transition to IPv6 with its nearly unlimited address space the Internet will grind to a halt.

Citizen Journalism as a Catalyst for Transforming Media

New Media on Ulitzer Another incident on the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) hits YouTube, and the world is once again asking the question if BART Police are using too much force, the police acted appropriately, or if BART passengers simply recorded a snapshot in time that could be interpreted at a later date. In the recent past, to find out what happened during an incident such as the most recent BART scuffle, you would be dependent on a newspaper's beat journalist to hang around a police station. He'd get a copy of the official police report, perhaps talk with one of his friends ... (more)
