In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at the newly announced RONNIEE Network Architecture from A3 Cube. Rich Brueckner did a slidecast with their CTO last week, but Dan Olds and Henry Newman need to know more and see this thing for themselves.
Following that, the conversation veers off into a grab bag of tech news for the week:
- Dan’s is still recovering from a rootkit that infected his business computer. We seem to recall that he was always backlogged before this happened, but we’ll let it slide.
- This week, organizers of the International Supercomputing Conference promised better air-conditioning and WiFi for ISC’14 in Leipzig. “And there was much rejoicing.”
- Henry is lamenting the lack of Google Fiber coming to Minnesota. Since Google tends to piggyback on the fastest Internet pipes, it looks like the state will forever be a third-world country in terms of bandwidth.
- Rich is excited about the Outernet project, which hopes to launch a series of satellites that will provide free Internet connectivity worldwide to anyone who wants it.
