Open Magazine - Your strategic guide to Open Source
This week, we look at Metapa, a high-performance-analytics company out
to capitalize on database clustering solutions by making use of
technologies like Linux and PostgreSQL. Metapa aims to make more waves now
that it has acquired Didera, a Linux database clustering company. We talk
to Metapa CEO, Dave Powell, about his company's pitch, particularly for
corporate elephants relying on business intelligence.
While Metapa is making waves, suppliers for the Department of Defense
and Wal-Mart are preparing themselves for a tsunami in the form of a
nightmare-inducing acronym called RFID. Find out why the year 2005 is
their Y2K and why open systems are important in RFID's development.
