"ARM server hero Calxeda lines up software super friends"
14th June 2011
"In its attempt to performance per watt that is second to none,
Calxeda has taken the Cortex-A9 core, which is only available with
32-bit memory addressing, and packed it up in a four-core variant.
This has an integrated DDR3 memory controller, with ECC scrubbing,
and a homegrown interconnection fabric to link nodes together.
With a 4GB memory stick, the memory controller, and the interconnect,
Calxeda says it can deliver a complete server node in a thermal
envelope of under 5 watts. It is our guess that the Calxeda chips
will run at somewhere between 1GHz to 2GHz, but Calxeda has not said
what its target clock speed is yet."

"eHarmony Switches from Cloud to Atom Servers"
June 10th, 2011
"eHarmony recently shifted its Hadoop processing to a cluster of
SeaMicro SM10000 servers running in a colocation center."
"eHarmony uses algorithms to analyze 29 different attributes of
its member profiles and suggest matches. As its user base scaled
to tens of millions of members, eHarmony turned to Hadoop, an open
source technology that allows many small independent servers to
work together. Hadoop enables applications to work with thousands
of compute nodes and petabytes of data."
"For several years, eHarmony ran its Hadoop operations in the cloud,
which provided flexibility and scalability. But as its operations
continued to grow, the company evaluated other options, including
SeaMicro. eHarmony was able to purchase the SeaMicro SM10000 in
a configuration that enabled its Hadoop application to complete
its run in the same time four-hour time frame it had been taking
in the cloud."
"eHarmony said the switch reduced its reduced its operating expenses
by "tens of thousands of dollars a month," and its total cost of
ownership (TCO) by 74 percent."

"Despite that, Hadoop is running search on some of the internet's
largest sites. Lovers on eHarmony, job seekers on LinkedIn and
social networkers on Fox Interactive Media - Rupert Murdoch's
media arm running MySpace, Photobucket, and Rotten Tomatoes -
are getting their queries answered thanks to Hadoop."

"But is Hadoop our only hope? From scalability to fault tolerance,
Hadoop does myriad things very well. Yet, Hadoop is not the
