Google, Intel and Sun save the world!

Or something like that

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Radio Reg Welcome to Episode 8 of Semi-Coherent Computing - the savior edition.

Yes, this week's show has Sun Microsystems software engineer Bryan Cantrill talk about the role that DTrace plays in saving servers and applications gone wrong. Cantrill explains some of the basics around how DTrace helps with system tuning. In addition, he also hits on how IBM and the Linux set have reacted to Sun's flashy Solaris tool.

Along the way, I try to coax a few details out of Cantrill about Sun's upcoming Fishworks project.

Part two of the show brings us to Allyson Klein, who is a server and software exec at Intel and also one of the company's leading forces behind Climate Savers. Intel and Google announced Climate Savers in June. The project centers on buying and sell more efficient power supplies and improving the usage of power management software on PCs.

Klein tells us how and why Intel and Google came together for this project. She also updates us on the progress of the group.
