FFII TIO Workgroup Releases Guidelines to Protect Freedom and Competition in the Cloud

Paris, Munich, Campos, December 1st 2008 - the Foundation for a Free Information Infrastructure (FFII) released during the Open World Forum the first conclusions of its workgroup on Total Information Outsourcing (TIO). TIO is a recent trend in the management of corporate information systems which consists of outsourcing critical information infrastructure to Web based services. This creates new risks for Freedom and Competition. The FFII TIO workgroup has identified 7 rights that address these risks. If they are satisfied, outsourced software and data enjoys the same freedom and security that is available with in-house Open Source / Free Software solutions.

Distributed computing with Linux and Hadoop

Every day people rely on search engines to find specific content in the many terabytes of data that exist on the Internet, but have you ever wondered how this search is actually performed? One approach is Apache's Hadoop, which is a software framework that enables distributed manipulation of vast amounts of data. One application of Hadoop is parallel indexing of Internet Web pages. Hadoop is an Apache project with support from Yahoo!, Google, IBM, and others. This article introduces the Hadoop framework and shows you why it's one of the most important Linux®-based distributed computing frameworks.
