Arduino Create Expands to Support Linux on Intel Chips

When we talk about open source hardware, we often think about the Raspberry Pi and other community-backed single board computers running Linux. Yet all these communities were modeled on the success of the 14-year-old Arduino project, in which Linux has been only tangentially involved, and only over...

How to Measure HPC

Measuring high performance computing can be very powerful for the businesses that rely on it and the end users that directly employ it. Based on NAG’s experience helping organizations with HPC measurement, we have put together this overview of the subject for TOP500 News. Measuring usage and costs...

What Is Virtualization?

No advance in information technology in the past six decades has offered a greater range of quantifiable benefits than has virtualization. Many IT professionals think of virtualization in terms of virtual machines (VM) and their associated hypervisors and operating-system implementations, but that...

GPU Computing: The Key to Unleashing the Mysteries of All That Data

To effectively handle all the data being created in the world today, we need GPU computing. To harness this goldmine of data, artificial intelligence and machine learning has emerged, which uses algorithms to train data to find patterns. The problem is, traditional CPUs (central processing units)...

Top 10 Open Source Linux Robots

Back in 2014, we struggled to fill out our top 10 roundup of Linux-based robots and padded the list with conceptually similar autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). In addition, many of those robots were proprietary or open source only on the software side. Today...

Without routers and bridges, we would be lonely little islands; learn more in this networking tutorial.

Linux Networking Hardware for Beginners: Think Software

Last week, we learned about LAN (local area network) hardware. This week, we'll learn about connecting networks to each other, and some cool hacks for mobile broadband. Routers Network routers are everything in computer networking, because routers connect networks. Without routers we would be...
