Links of the day 10/09/2015: Scale + fault tolerance, and web is dead long live the web

  • IPFS : a lot like the webtorrent project or other, anyway interesting to check out. Even if some inherent characteristics makes it non practical for dynamic web. Think of Reddit, this would generate so many diff of the same page... There manifesto can be found here 
  • Scalable High Performance Systems : nice presentation on addressing interesting new challenges which emerge in the operation of the datacentres that form the infrastructure of cloud services, and in supporting the dynamic workloads of demanding users.
  • FTS workshop : funny that its the the first workshop on fault tolerance while HPC system have a long history of addressing these issue..
