Association™, a global non-profit organization focused on developing
standards that help speed time to market for products that involve
multicore implementations, announced today that Xilinx,
Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) has joined the consortium as an executive board
"Xilinx has been a semiconductor industry leader at the forefront of
technology for over 25 years, and we look forward to the contributions
they’ll make in the development of our next generation standards,” said
Multicore Association President, Markus Levy. “Xilinx’s involvement with
the Multicore Association, especially focused on our new Software-Hardware
Interface for Multi-Many Core (SHIM) standard and MCAPI standard,
will provide very well-rounded guidance and a practical perspective on
designing with multicore technology."
“Xilinx strongly supports the Multicore Association and its mission to
guide the long-term development of open standards for multicore and
manycore solutions,” said Tomas Evensen, Chief Scientist Embedded
Software at Xilinx. “Our history is marked by a commitment to innovation
and delivering customer value, with dedication to open standards and a
broad ecosystem that furthers industry-wide collaboration.”
The Multicore Association is working to enable the widespread adoption
of multicore processor-based implementations, such as the Xilinx®
Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoCs, by setting standards for how systems
will be utilized and programmed. As a semiconductor design innovator,
Xilinx will help the Multicore Association drive standards for deploying
multicore solutions in high performance embedded systems.
The Multicore Association provides three levels of membership,
with executive board, working group, and university members. The
executive board helps determine the overall direction of the
Working group members are eligible to work on any of the working groups.
University members may participate in any of the Multicore Association’s
ongoing development work.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively.
What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense.
In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application.
“Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes.
