Another Type Of Virus Hits The World (And Gets Microsoft No Less)


A number of anti-virus vendors, including Trend Micro and Computer Associates, have warned of a virus with a new approach. It is known variously as QAZ.TROJAN or QAZ.WORM, and was officially renamed to W32.HLLW.Qaz.A in September. The virus enters via unprotected shared drives and usually replaces the Notepad.Exe application, although there have been occasions where Notepad was not the victim. The virus then provides a backdoor to outside intruders, giving them in effect remote control over the computer that has been infected. This analysis contains some suggestions to protect your machines.

Thus, the machine is susceptible to newer variants of the original virus ( QAZ already has at least four variants). The cure for this problem is that most current anti-virus software will automatically either dial in to the vendor or connect via the Internet and update the strings on a scheduled basis. Unfortunately, this Read More

Standard Benchmark on Hewlett-Packard ProLiant Servers


In August 2006, Microsoft conducted a Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 standard distribution benchmark to measure the performance and scalability characteristics of the application in a simulated distribution scenario. This benchmark exercised core accounts receivables scenarios around order entry through invoicing, in addition to procure-to-pay processes around purchase order creation through receiving of goods. We look at the methodology and results.

The Move to PCI Express in Next-generation Systems


The next-generation input/output interconnect standard for the PC industry arises from PCI Express and PICMG 1.3 specifications. However, as platforms change to incorporate these standards, they’re virtually eliminating space for high-end telephony boards. When building telephony solutions, vendors must be aware of the changes in these specifications so that they can better use current and future systems for communications applications.

The first runner up for Amazon.com’s infrastructure business is… Sun Microsystems. Amazon, led by Jeff Bezos, has given the nod to Hewlett Packard. The win comes on the heels of a speech by Sun CEO Scott McNealy, where he called HP “pathetic”. Looks like Sun is left to wail and gnash its teeth.

Tape Drive Backup Warning


Tape drives and tape drive backups are expensive, time-consuming, and unreliable. Tape drives can cost from $350 to thousands of dollars (and the tapes aren’t free either). Plus, tapes are notoriously failure-prone and vulnerable to environmental degradation—and tape drive installation is expensive. Find out the other reasons why your tape backup system might not be an effective data storage and security strategy.

Also note that these figures come from a system costing approx. $375K, so the basic server cost accounts for a relatively small portion of price/performance.
