Under The Hood Of I2p, The Tor Alternative That Reloaded Silk Road | Ars Technica

AnandTech | ECS LIVA X Review: A Fanless Bay Trail-M mini-PC

While this makes I2P useful for things like anonymized BitTorrent streams and the like, it does not have the scale or the level of additional protections that the Tor network provides. There are no tools to help get around state-imposed firewalls, for example, like Tor’s pluggable transports and bridges. But being small has made I2P less of a target for denial-of-service attacks and state blocking so far. That’s something that Silk Road Reloaded may change).

ECS made their entry in the market through the LIVA . Despite being an innovative product in the mini-PC space, it did suffer from a few questionable devisions with respect to the chassis design. The placement of the USB ports was not user-friendly, and the unit didn’t appear sturdy either. ECS has iterated fast and put out an updated version (with a different chassis and motherboard design as well as a few tweaked internals) in the form of the LIVA X. The following gallery from ECS provides more insight into the LIVA X, and the picture that follows compares it against the LIVA.

Solace message routers can now be integrated with WebSphere MQ, and support native integration with DataPower appliances, IBM Integration Bus and WebSphere Application Server. This means companies currently using IBM-based application infrastructure can implement Solace message routers as the messaging backbone for new applications and still have full interoperability with their existing infrastructure. This interoperability also enables customers to easily replace WebSphere MQ where it isn’t keeping up with requirements like higher data volumes or more diverse endpoints. “IBM MQ has been a workhorse technology for more than 20 years and has been deployed by many companies across a wide range of legacy applications. Integrating Solace message routers with IBM MQ applications allows companies to meet the needs of modern applications that require streaming real-time data, big data scale, e-commerce functionality, reach to mobile devices and connectivity with the Internet of Things,” said Shawn McAllister, CTO at Solace. “Solace also provides a path for companies to upgrade the performance, improve the behavior and lower the cost of ownership of legacy applications by selectively migrating applications from MQ to Solace where it makes sense to do so.” Solace simplifies the architecture and operation of application infrastructure by providing a unified platform for SOA/ESB/JMS, mobile, desktop, REST, MQTT, and WAN distribution.
