Even though Plexxi was only officially established in early 2011, Plexxi
has been operating in stealth mode for the past few years, cooking new and
amazing technological inventions. Their newest product on the market can
provide a reason for network cabling companies to pause, because this is the
first step to move away from reliance on cables in the network.
Plexxi is a networking technology company started in Cambridge, MA and
with additional office in Nashua, NH. They currently have 56 employees, are in
the process of hiring more, and are looking to open an office in San Francisco
in 2013. Though still a start up company, they have already raised $48.8
million from Matrix Partners and North Bridge Venture Partners in venture
capital. Their first products were just launched to the commercial market last
week, but they have had pilot customers testing merchandise since September,
with solid reviews. Two such happy pilot customers are CloudSigma and
Plexxi is defined by software and their main goal is to create
networking inside a data center that is able to function without being a slave
to the switch. Their products are a mix of software and hardware and they have
named their outlook “affinity” networking — where the abilities of
the network function live and are directed by application requirements. They
hope to have networks that are more software based, with less reliance on where
the networking cables are layer, to save on power consumption, cost, and
Plexxi’s newest product is the ultimate in switches and is designed to
handle large amounts of traffic between multiple server racks at quite a speedy
pace. This so called switch is really a whole new breed of networking box and
has not only software, but an optical transceiver that allows it to connect … Continue reading ...
Firewall technology has been developed so that the internet world and
community can get to protect their online resources. Computers will always be
prone to attack every time they are connected to the internet through a network
or directly. The firewall works by blocking any form of malware from affecting
the network and computers. Malwares get problematical from day to day since
hackers will always device many methods to infiltrate networks. They make it
possible for hackers to change data, have unauthorized use of the computer,
steal data and even damage the computer or network. Malware continually scans a
computer or network to find vulnerable areas. This is a serious threat to
online businesses and resources which continue to suffer losses since the
malware will either bring down websites, will use information stolen against
the business or to detriment of the business or will perpetrate fraud against
the business and other unsuspecting people who might be clients. Firewall
technology is refined to keep ahead of the hackers and all of their schemes.
Different kinds of technology are applied and they are static packet filtering,
application layer, dynamic packet filtering and circuit level technologies
which utilize different mechanisms to offer the best kind of protection.
Protection for computers and networks gets better through updates. The updates
are usually given by the day or at specific time intervals.
The guaranteed methods are definitely not very practical since switching
off a computer or staying offline inhibits work. The most practical way is to
install a firewall which will work alongside software like antivirus and
antispyware software. The measures identified here will work to making it
almost impossible for hackers to be able to gain entry into the computer and
wrecking havoc. Firewalls fall into two broad classes which are the hardware
and the … Continue reading ...

first dual core smartpone. Initially this device will be launched with Android
2.2 and will be upgraded to Gingerbread once it becomes available. It runs
flash and its speedy dual-core processors make the interface quick and smooth.

taken the opportunity to reveal two new cell phones at CES this week, the
Liquid Mini and the beTouch E210. In October last year Acer announced the Acer
Liquid Metal, the latest model of its smartphone line, which became available
in the UK in December. A reasonably spec’d device it unsuccessful to cause much
of a stir and can still only be purchased through a limited number of outlets.
on around A300, the cost wasn’t extortionate and now it seems that Acer are changing
their tack. Judging via the specs it looks like both the Liquid Mini and
beTouch E210 will fall firmly into the budget category. Hardware wise, the
Liquid Mini is similar to the LG Optimus One or Motorola Citrus. Powered by a
600MHz processor it comes with 512 MegaByte of RAM and the same amount of ROM.
The screen is a 3.2 inches capacitative touchscreen display and there’s also a
5 megapixel camera. The specs are sensible but the as yet unannounced price
will determine how desirable it is. It retains the same styling as the Liquid
Metal and will be present in a choice of five colours.
beTouchE210 is a very different phone for Acer and offers a BlackBerry-like
form factor with a full QWERTY keyboard beneath a 2.6 inches screen. There’s
Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity plus a 3.2 megapixel camera on the rear of the
device. Powering the beTouch is a 416MHz processor backed up via 256 MegaByte
of RAM and 512 MegaByte of ROM. As the less than catchy name advises this
device is aimed at a business user, whereas the Liquid Mini would seem to be
targeted at a younger audience. Both cell phone will be running Android 2.2.
The beTouch will be the first of the pair launched in … Continue reading ...
