[Links of the Day] 13/06/2017 : Next Gen Fabric Comparison, Marginal Revolution Books, AWS awless CLI

  • Marginal Revolution Books : A browsable database of books discussed on Marginal Revolution, sorted by the month of their posting.
  • CCIX, GEN-Z, OpenCAPI : Overview and comparison of the different next generation fabric. This presentation shows that key difference and use case associated with each fabric. CCIX  mainly focusing on low latency main memory expansion with its hardware cache coherence. It enables accelerator, network, main processor, etc.. to work on a same coherent view of dataset. Gen-z is really all about hardware/ component disaggregation. I tend to prefer this approach as I feel this will be the next step in HW efficiency. While OpenCapi is a little bit like CCIX but with the hope to extend beyond to rack level in the future. 
  • awless : fast, powerful and easy-to-use command line interface (CLI) to manage Amazon Web Services. This a nicer version of the AWS cli. Also, it is WAY more human-friendly. Check it out.
