[Links of the day] 30/05/2016 : FPGA market extinction event, Consensus as cloud service , OSCON16

  • FPGA extinction level event : article looking at the evolution of the FPGA vendor market. It seems that if Xilinx get aquired, 80% of the FPGA market vanished ( Altera was acquired recently by Intel). This as far reaching implication for the market as consolidation occurs and focus seems to be toward datacenter solution at the detriment of the rest of the market. 
  • Filo : consolidated consensus as a cloud service. Really interesting paper looking at the possibility to offer a consensus system as a service within cloud. This would greatly help anybody out there relying on their zookeeper / consul / etc.. and allow them to focus even more on the business logic.
  • OsCon : slides of the excellent OsCon are up . Lots of docker related stuff .. but if you look past it there is also some gems such as Netflix SSH Bastion talk or the Build to Lead talk.
