The thing that grabbed my attention, more than anything else, was the Student Cluster Competition.  11 teams from around the world - mostly from Universities - were competing to create the fastest (by a variety […]

With the latest release of CentOS-7, we have added several new Alternative Architecture (AltArch) releases in addition to our standard x86_64 (x86 {Intel/AMD} 64-bit) architecture. Architectures (aka arches) in Linux distributions refer to the type of CPU on which the distribution runs.  In the case of our standard release, it runs on x86 64-bit CPUs […]

A Flashable Image for the Intel Edison The Intel Edison system-on-a-chip boards are pretty cool, a little compute module can plug into a number of different breakout boards. There's an Arduino-style board, and another form-factor featuring a bunch of stackable modules (GPIO, SD Card, OLED Screen etc.) Since the system is a dual-core Atom, we can […]
