Xandros Creates Enhanced User Experience for Netbook Users with Moblin V2

Brings Advanced Internet, Media, Social Networking and Graphics to Eee PC

Xandros has announced it is developing software products based on the recently released Moblin Version 2 project for Intel Atom processor-based platforms. The new version of Moblin will enable Xandros to provide customizations with advanced Internet, media, social networking and graphics capabilities for the ASUS Eee PC.

The Eee PC defined the netbook revolution by combining fast boot, low-power technologies together with a next-generation user interface. Moblin v2 enables Xandros to further enhance the Eee PC user experience by delivering advanced graphics capabilities such as drop shadows, spin, bounce and 3D animation that are universally available to all applications. By combining core Moblin v2 technologies with Xandros' own proprietary technologies to provide social networking, multimedia content management, PIM, Web, and other services, Xandros will exceed the needs of today's consumers and provide advanced next generation touch-friendly applications specifically designed for netbook and mobile computer users. All Xandros Moblin v2 solutions include a rich graphical user interface and an integrated application store with "click and run" access to additional software, games, multimedia and web applications for mobile devices.

"By employing Moblin Version 2 in its future products, Xandros will be able to deliver new, compelling user enhancements to Intel® Atom(TM) processor-based devices such as the ASUS Eee PC," said Doug Fisher, vice president of Intel's Software and Services Group and general manager of the System Software Division. "Xandros was an early adopter of Moblin technologies and we look forward to its offerings based on the new, community driven platform for Intel Atom processor-based systems."

"The new Moblin 2 for Intel® Atom(TM) processors provides the foundation to build dynamic interfaces with integrated social networking, to satisfy the media-rich lifestyle of today's mobile users in a timely manner," said Andreas Typaldos, CEO of Xandros. "Working with ASUS on products like the ASUS Eee PC has demonstrated the wisdom of creating Linux-based 'netbooks,' and we are excited to be working with the Moblin v2 palate to further enrich the user experience."

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Longer function invocation times (referred to as cold starts) become very important to track, because they impact the response time of the service and will impose additional cost. Additionally, the transition to smaller individual components (much like breaking a monolithic application into microservices) results in a simpler deployment model, but makes the system as a whole increasingly complex.
GCP Marketplace is based on a multi-cloud and hybrid-first philosophy, focused on giving Google Cloud partners and enterprise customers flexibility without lock-in. It also helps customers innovate by easily adopting new technologies from ISV partners, such as commercial Kubernetes applications, and allows companies to oversee the full lifecycle of a solution, from discovery through management.
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost and increase in speed. Sometimes in order to reduce complexity teams compromise features or change requirements

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
