Everyone use opensource

Apple, Microsoft, VMware: Everyone's building open-source software

Summary:⁠ In the opening keynote at LinuxCon, Linux Foundation executive director Jim Zemlin observed that open source is now key to how all companies use to develop software—and yes he meant Apple, Microsoft, and VMware as well.

Jim Zemlin, the Linux Foundation's leader sees Apple, Microsoft, and VMware using open-source development.

Why is it important for businesses to master open source? Zemlin said it's because "Software is the future of IT. Hardware is important to enable software, but what I mean that the value that end-users sees from technology increasingly comes from the software."

He then showed a slide of half-a-dozen smartphones that were turned off and pointed out that even with a very technical crowd, "If you just look at the hardware of smartphones, you can't tell them apart, it's only when you turn them on that you can tell the differences."

Zemlin said that all successful tech companies are now using and contributing to open source communities. "Besides the usual suspects--Amazon, Google, IBM-- there are companies that you may not think of as being big open-source companies, even competitors, now admit that they must participate in open source."

Like who? Zemlin pointed out that "Microsoft is now supporting Linux in their cloud. Not because they want to, but because their customers demand it."

In addition, VMware just acquired Nicira, an important OpenStack. Indeed, VMware, a  champion of the closed virtualization and cloud position, has just submitted an application to join the OpenStack Foundation.

Even Apple, Zemlin observed "one of the most closed companies in the world, uses a lot of open source. If you look inside the Apple's iPhone legal agreements you'll find GPL code there." In addition, "Apple bought CUPS (Common Unix Printing System), an open-source project" a few years ago. So while Apple may be closed, it certainly understands the value of open source. Indeed, Mac OS X is built on a foundation of Darwin/Mach—BSD Unix-based operating systems.

Zemlin's not the only one seeing this marriage of open-source and corporate IT. Tim Yeaton CEO of Black Duck Software recently blogged, "Corporate IT has made extensive use of open source code for years. Gartner reported that on average, 29% of deployed code was open source, and that by 2015 at least 95% of mainstream IT organizations will leverage open source solutions within mission critical software deployments. So while open source code is being widely adopted, it's only recently that corporate IT became interested in the efficiencies of the open, collaborative creation process itself. Projects spin up quickly and attract contributors organically without advertising or hiring; large distributed teams produce high quality innovative code with little overhead; and it's all done completely in the open."

"Open collaborative development via communities is widely understood and accepted, and corporate IT organizations are realizing that these characteristics can be applied to improve their internal development as well, and many are looking to apply them to enhance their own internal methods, typically in conjunction with adopting agile or lean methodologies."

In short, welcome to IT software development in 2012, welcome to open source.

Timer AC bergantian

Bagaimana sich prinsip kerja AC yang bergantian? Seperti yang terangkai pada ACPDB, yang kita butuhkan adalah 1 buah timer dan 2 buah kontaktor. Pada dasarnya rangkaiannya adalah seperti gambar diatas. Seperti kita ketahui, timer dan kontaktor akan bekerja apabila mendapatkan catuan 220 V. Pada timer catuan bisa dikoneksikan di lubang “L” dan “N”, sedang pada kontaktor dilubang “A1” dan “A2”. Itulah kenapa pada saat mati listrik komponen2 tersebut tidak bekerja. Timer berfungsi sebagai switch dari 2-1 atau 2-3 dan lubang “2” sebagai sumber yang dialiri arus listrik. Sesuai namanya alat ini akan bergantian dari 2-1 atau 2-3 berdasarkan waktu yang sudah kita atur pada sirip biru. Satu sirip merepresentasikan 30 menit. Sedang pada kontaktor untuk tipe Telemecanique, sumbu-sumbu saklarnya adalah 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, NO-NO, NC-NC.  Jika “A1” dan “A2” tidak dicatu maka 1-2 (open), 3-4 (open), 5-6 (open), NO-NO (open), NC-NC (close/terhubung). Dan bila “A1” dan “A2” dicatu  maka 1-2 (close), 3-4 (clo…

Pemilihan jenis modul AMF (Automatic Main Failure)

Pemilihan jenis modul AMF (Automatic Main Failure)

Dari sekian banyak jenis modul yang ada dipasaran, kami menawarkan beberapa alternatif untuk jenis modul AMF yang dapat kami sediakan. antara lain menggunakan modul dari DEEPSEA, smart relay atau timer. tentunya dengan beragam pilihan tersebut ada beberapa keuntungan atau kelebihan dari masing masing modul tersebut. sebagai misal menggunakan modul AMF dari DEEPSEA akan sangat cocok jika modul ini dapat berinterakasi langsung dengan genset. terutama jika mesin genset belum dilengkapi genset controller dan masih mengandalkan panel genset manual. untuk pabrikan genset sekarang ini pada panel genset sudah dilengkapi dengan AMF, sehingga tidak perlu panel AMF - ATS dengan menggunakan modul DEEPSEA atau sejenisnya. sehingga dalam pemilihanya dapat menggunakan timer, smart relay atau produk lain seperti ATS controller C20 dari socomec.


Modul DEEPSEA 4420

AMF Module DSE 4420 Modul ini memiliki banyak fitur antara lain ; Start / stop gensetDigital …
