Well I always thought Aha from Norway were vastly underrated, they made and I am sure still make incredible music but that is not the focus of this blog piece. I am here in Heathrow Airport waiting to fly back to LA and am fired with all sorts of a-HA thoughts for 2008.
It looks as I will be presenting at CFObjective on Clustering CF and JRun so I am excited about that. I have to acknowledge the trailblazers on that front though, Frank DeRienzo, Brandon Purcell, Steven Erat and Dave Gruber. Back in the days, Allaire saw the coming need for Clustering and bought a small but very significant company called “Bright Tiger” based up in New Hampshire, if I remember that right.
Frank DeRienzo and Dave Gruber both worked there and out of that came “Cluster Cats” and almost “Harvest”. Frank DeRienzo gave what I think was the most arduous boot-camp on Clustering CF in Washington DC in 2000. I have slightly digressed here but I do believe that it would be good for the CF developer community overall to become more aware of High-Availability (HA) and all that is entailed.
A Happy New Year to all by the way.
