The Top 250 Players in the Cloud Computing Ecosystem

In the run-up to the next Cloud Expo, 7th Cloud Expo (November 1–4, 2010) being held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley, it's time to give my earlier list a complete overhaul. Here, accordingly, is an expanded list of the most active players in the Cloud Ecosystem. I have increased it from the 'mere' 150 I identified back in January of this year, to 250, testimony – as if any were needed! – to the fierce and continuing growth of the "Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing. Editorial note: The words in quotation marks used to describe the various services and solutions in this round-up are in every case taken from the Web sites of the companies themselves. Omissions to this Top 250 list should be sent to me via Twitter (twitter.com/jg21) and I will endeavor to include them in any future revision of this newly expanded rou... (more)

Facebook, Google, and the Near-Term Future of the USA

On the day when the Dow Jones Industrial Average topped 12,000 for the first time since June 2008, it was impossible not to correlate the eloquence and optimism of President Obama's "State of the Union" speech on Tuesday night with the restoration of a sense of perspective and hope in the USA about the future. Obama grasped the nettle full-on. "We are poised for progress," he declared, adding: "Two years after the worst recession most of us have ever known, the stock market has come roaring back. Corporate profits are up. The economy is growing." As one blogger expressed it, though - and he is a former Goldman Sachs trader called Tyler Durden, so he ought to know wheref he speaks: "There was a massive pink elephant in the room called reality though." Durden's gripe is with what he deems to be the unreality of Obama's praising Google and Facebook so highly in an Ameri... (more)

Apache Patch Fixes Security Holes

The Apache Software Foundation has upgraded the Apache 2.0 web server to fix two security vulnerabilities. The first is a significant denial of service hole whose details are to be disclosed on April 8. The second relates to leaks of several file descriptors to "child processes" such as CGI scripts, which could constitute a security threat on servers running untrusted CGI scripts. The security holes are said to affect all platforms. Besides fixing the vulnerabilities, the Apache 2.0.45 upgrade also fixes a bunch of bugs in the 2.0.44 version. The Apache foundation warned OS/2 users, however, that even with the 2.0.45 version, they would still be vulnerable to denial of service attacks. OS/2 users will get a fix with the 2.0.46 version. Apache is the most popular web server, estimated to account for about 63% of all web servers on the Internet, according to Netcraft.... (more)

I use the latest version of XMLBuddy pro with eclipse, which uses a pretty old xerces.jar. Newer versions don't seem to work at all. If it's indeed a xerces bug I'll just ignore it.
