At Phys.org, Dr. Norbert Aschenbrenner recently wrote about the First Series Production Vehicle with Software Control. Siemens and partners are developing information and communications technology for electric cars, and their first production vehicle uses a central electronics and software architecture called RACE. This centralized architecture is intended to reduce development time and make it easier to add new functions later. This SATURN link roundup offers several recent blog posts and a podcast on the topic of centralized architecture.
Selecting the Right Computing Architecture for Your GIS: Dave Peters at Esri Insider offers some advice on how to choose between centralized and distributed architectures.
IoT Drives Business Decisions: In a podcast from the 2014 IoT Summit, Gary Butler, Chairman and CEO of Camgian Microsystems, and Gary Audin, President of Delphi, discussed two approaches to connecting the Internet of Things (IoT), centralized architectures and architectures distributed at the network edge.
Choose Your Weapon: Evaluating Network Performance Management Architecture Scalability: David Hayward at the CA Technologies blog explains that new technologies, such the IoT and mobile broadband, require the right network performance management tools. He describes three main architecture types as well as four ways that centralized architecture is scalable.
More opinions on centralized architecture in brief:
- Evaluating Microsoft Lync? Be sure to consider ShoreTel: “Lync relies on a complex, centralized architecture with multiple server roles that work in conjunction to enable features. This makes it less flexible and more expensive to implement, deploy and maintain.”
- What Is a DDoS Attack Anyway?: “A centralized architecture makes it relatively easy for attackers to identify and attack the architecture directly.”
- 5 Answers About the Technical Jargon of VoIP: “The real ROI comes from adopting a centralized architecture, improved security, and the benefits of a well managed SBC (session border controller).”
- Use Cases for High Capacity OpenFlow Switching in Intelligent Edge Applications: “Load balancers, firewalls, label switching and other traditional middle-box functionalities are all examples of applications that could significantly benefit from the centralized architecture…”
- LDAP – A Primer: “This centralized architecture provides an efficient means for services to access directory-style information.”
