2008 Wrapup: Top 10, What Say.

YouTube anounces the Top 10 YouTube videos of all times! Guitar videos are at #3 and I am not surprised. I for one have been learning Guitar online with YouTube videos! (Yeah, that's me in the photo:-)). 

Also check the Top 10 Web Platforms, Semantic Web Products, Consumer Web AppsMobile Web Products and Enterprise Web Apps of 2008 as identified by ReadWriteWeb. While many of them on the list are no surprise (Facebook, OpenSocial, Google Apps, Twitter, AWS, Android, FireFox, Meebo, LinkedIn, Google Maps (Mobile), Y! Search Monkey) , a few that caught my attention are: Pandora, Shazam, Fring, Brightkite,  Last.fm, Ning, Hulu, Qik, Cooliris, Atlassian, DimDim, WordPress, Mindtouch, Dapper, Hakia, BooRah, Zemanta, Uptake and Zoho. I'll let you Google explore them if you havent been playing with them already.

While Apple has been identified as the Best BigCo. of 2008, Zoho has been identified as the Best LittleCo. of 2008. Zoho is an indian startup that is likely to compete headon with the likes of Microsoft Office, Google Apps and SalesForce.com with their office productivity suite, product management tools and CRM solutions.

Save money with Open Storage

Open Storage helps you save time and money for Web-scale Applications.

Want Proof?

Check this excellent  benchmark for Web 2.0 run on Sun Storage 7410 (aka AmberRoad) and CMT technology based Sun Fire T5120 servers.

Its also evident from the benchmark data that you don't suffer a performance penalty for using NAS.  There is a fairly common impression that performance could/would be slower than DAS, this shows that it's just not true with this environment.
