The Internet Hall of Fame inducted John Cioffi for his invention of DSL, VDSL, and vectoring technology.

Dr. Cioffi has been named an Innovator, a category which recognizes and celebrates individuals who have made outstanding technological, commercial, or policy advances, and helped to expand the Internet's reach. Dr. Cioffi's first invention, DSL, is now the world's most deployed and cost-effective fixed-access broadband technology. Vectoring technology, another important invention that accelerates DSL speed above 100 Mbps, is now being deployed worldwide by major global service providers, including AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, Belgacom, Eircom, and the Australian National Broadband Network.

Prior to founding ASSIA in 2003, Dr. Cioffi served as founder, CTO and vice president of engineering at Amati, the leading DSL modem manufacturer, before its acquisition by Texas Instruments. Dr. Cioffi also has held a tenured endowed professorship at Stanford University in the Department of Electrical Engineering from 1985-2009, where he is now an active Professor Emeritus with limited ongoing research efforts in broadband access. He has published more than 400 papers and holds more than 100 patents.

"The 2014 Internet Hall of Fame inductees include extraordinary individuals who have helped shape the global Internet," said Internet Society CEO, Kathy Brown. "This historic assembly of Internet trailblazers, innovators, and thought-leaders represent many different countries and backgrounds, each with an inspiring story to share. We applaud their achievements and determination to push the boundaries of technological and social innovation to connect the world."

"It is an honor to be inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame and to have this very satisfying opportunity to watch and help the Internet continually evolve and achieve its many possibilities," said Dr. John Cioffi in a statement. "One of my most important goals has been to facilitate high-performance, cost-effective access to the knowledge and ideas that the Internet provides, and to help connect the world in the pursuit of education, cooperation, and understanding."

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
