Adobe has think about a really cloud solution on the most powerful Linux/Unix servers ...
The end price of camera like this one is about price of sensor by Sony ...Lower price of sensors would bring a cheaper MF cameras ... It is a way to better image quality for more people ... The way to the future ...
What a pitty! Metz doesn't have radio-based TTL ... e.g. radio-based P-TTL ...
Question is: Can I use simply another Storage Cloud Service (like MS, Google, ...) in Adobe CC ?
tkbslc: The vast majority of chromebooks are way underpowered for photoshop as well as having small and low resolution screens. So I'm not sure the user experience will be great.
However, if more high end apps come to chrome, I suspect more high end hardware will, too.
“Because users log on from home there are no boot storms to deal with,” he said. “But we do have a very large range of IOPS requirements. Some apps, like Adobe Photoshop, are very disk-heavy. We calculated we needed IOPS ranging from 20 to 25, right up to around 500 or 600.”
Todays Latency: Processor <= 10ns, Memory <=100ns, Flash 25-200 μs, Network 0.3-500ms, Disk 2-8 ms
Architectures of new HPC and Windows PC aren't comparable in saving sources and high performance ... New programs written especially for HPC will be most effective ...
HPC can save sources and to deliver a high performance by new workflow in the data processing, too...
We can get a few different solutions and probably work can divided among more parts between server processor and station's processor ...
"... On DSL or cable Internet connections, latencies of less than 100 milliseconds (ms) are typical and less than 25 ms desired. ..."
Datacenters have high network speed e.g.: http://www.mellanox.com/ethernet/40gbe_index.php
Simple solution for future is about speed of network connections and streaming of apps ... or local installation for others - it does not matter if it is directly on OS or on OS in the VM or in the some other engine, but definitely better is to write only one code :) HPC can save sources ...
kff: Will be EVF for GR ? Like for GXR ... An optical VF don't show info like display ...
What a pitty !!!
Are a streaming of games e.g. by nVidia grids too about local virtual env.?
Adobe can begin to think about Linux ...
"The recent announcement also included the first fruits of the OpenPower Foundation, an accelerator from NVIDIA. The new GPU accelerator, integrated directly into the server, is aimed at larger users of big data analytics, especially those using NoSQL databases. The accelerator is incorporated into a new server, the Power System S824L, which includes up to 24 POWER8 cores, 1 TB of memory and up to 2 NVIDIA K40 GPU accelerators. It also includes a bare metal version of Ubuntu Linux. IBM reports it runs extracting patterns for a variety of analytics, big data, and technical computing workloads involving large amounts of data 8x faster."
It probably is running in the VM, but on the server clusters ... :)
Some other an interesting info: https://dancingdinosaur.wordpress.com/tag/power8/
kff: a cheap APS-C camera with a compact lens like Pentax DA 50/1.8 + 35/2.4 would give a better picture quality and with cropping to 1" too :)
But why not Panasonic or Sony :)
it is also about sensor technology and its generation
e.g. last Foveon
New servers with IBM Power8 and Nvidia accelerators can help to new cloud / stream apps ... maybe they will be soon :)
"... However, with Project Photoshop Streaming, we are experimenting with ways to provide additional access our products that are hardware independent—in other words, the ability to access our products from any device without having to download and install. ..."
Is possible to use filters like Google Nik Collection etc.?
kff: It doesn't work with W7 and iOS (iPad Air) : mischmacht version of drivers ... but both version on tablet and PC have a latest versions !!!
After 3 months ... It still doesn't work (W7 + Air Stylus on the iPad Air) ... same mistake with version mismatch, which there aren't possible to repair by sw upgrade because it isn't... "no dramas" !!!
It seems be winner of mobile photographers ... :)
