Memory issue disrupts FAA air traffic control system
A memory problem in the traffic management system of the Federal Aviation Administration resulted in the disruption of flights on the U.S. East Coast on Saturday, according to the agency.The FAA said Monday that data was not removed from the flight control system even after air traffic controllers deleted it, until the storage limit was filled, putting demands on the processing power required for the smooth functioning of the overall En Route Automation Modernization (ERAM) system.On Sunday, FAA said a recent software upgrade to a high-altitude radar facility at Leesburg, Virginia had possibly led to the disruption, but did not provide details. It maintains that ERAM has had a greater than 99.99 percent availability rate since it was installed nationwide earlier this year.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

OpenStack is redefining the business model for data solutions
This vendor-written tech primer has been edited by Network World to eliminate product promotion, but readers should note it will likely favor the submitter’s approach.IT is headed toward being something more akin to a utility service, transformed by OpenStack’s open standardized cloud architecture, which will improve interoperability and render vendor lock-in a thing of the past.Initially a solution adopted by smaller ISVs lacking the capital to build private clouds, OpenStack-based cloud solutions are shaping up to be the logical choice for large enterprise as industry leaders, including IBM, Cisco, EMC, HP and Oracle, bet on its value for defining the next-generation model for business computing.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

IDG Contributor Network: Barracuda jumps into the file sync and share space
CudaDrive. It's not exactly a name which rolls off the tongue. Indeed, when I first heard it, I thought the PR person was referring to some new product to protect against head lice. Upon a deeper dive, however, I realized that CudaDrive is the name of  Barracuda's new file-sharing solution.Barracuda is, of course, the vendor delivering security and storage solutions. Over 150,000 organizations worldwide use Barracuda's products. But until now, Barracuda has mainly played in the heavy infrastructure space. CudaDrive takes them much closer to actual end users.So, what is CudaDrive exactly? Barracuda is touting CudaDrive as a secure cloud file-sharing solution. The emphasis, unsurprisingly given Barracuda's history, is on "secure." Also, given the company's background, it is unsurprising to see that CudaDrive is also being offered via an on-premises appliance. The idea being that, unlike pure-play cloud-based file-sharing solutions like Google Drive or Box, CudaDrive will help organizations with a slow and steady transition from existing corporate file shares. CudaDrive enables users to access files stored in the Barracuda cloud from anywhere or any device, and helps preserve storage space by not requiring synced copies of files to be stored locally.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

OneDrive's new sharing funtionality is live, notifies users when files are changed
Microsoft’s OneDrive storage service was updated Monday to let users easily sync entire folders with other people, and add a new system of notifications to help manage what could be a burgeoning fleet of shared files.As the company announced last week, users can now sync the contents of folders shared through OneDrive on their computers, something that previously wasn’t available through the service. Now, personal and business users can use the “Add to my OneDrive” button in the service’s Web interface to add a shared folder to the root of their OneDrive directory. The functionality works on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Mac OS X. Notably, Windows 8.1 users will have to upgrade to Windows 10 if they want to sync shared folders to their computer.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

How an obscure acro and an old Network World story helped link AT&T to NSA spying
You may have noticed a story over the weekend by Pro Publica and the New York Times that used documents provided by Edward Snowden to reveal previously unknown details of the “highly collaborative” relationship between AT&T and the NSA that enabled the latter’s controversial domestic spying program.An aspect of the story that received only passing mention was how the reporters who wrote it connected an acronym for an obscure proprietary network configuration – SNRC -- to AT&T and the NSA in part through a 1996 story in the now-defunct print version of Network World. In essence, that acro proved to be a fingerprint confirming the connection … and its match was found thanks to the wonder that is Google Books.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More
