Bathar-cruaidh, bathar-bog… Bathar-lìn?

coimpiutaireachd sgòth

In the evolution of the computer industry, we've had Hardware - an uidheamachd a tha riatanach gus na tagraidhean a ruith. Agus bha againn bathar-bog, na fuasglaidhean a chleachd na goireasan sin gus an obair a dhèanamh a b ’urrainn dhuinn a cheannach agus a chuir a-steach bho dhiofar mheadhanan. An-diugh, faodaidh tu am bathar-bog a luchdachadh sìos às aonais na meadhanan.

Dà dheichead de bhathar-cruaidh is bathar-bog

Hardware has upgrades and replacements. I have honestly lost track of all the computers I've owned to date. I have the skeletal remains of no less than 5 along with one dead laptop in my home.

Software has installations and upgrades that install changes in the software application. It's an antiquated system that we still work and struggle with today. I had a software update earlier today that required me to shut down and restart my MacBookPro. I've never had an OSX update go bad, but each time I can't help but get a little pensive – thinking that the worst will happen and I'll lose all my work. I have a network drive where I store my downloaded applications and a CD binder where I store the rest (and invariably find them missing).

Software like Google Spreadsheet, Google Analytics, Gmail, ExactTarget, and a ton of others go by ‘web-based applications' or ‘browser-based applications' or we even throw in an acronym, SaaS. It's a terrible acronym and explains the type of business it is more than the type of ‘ware' it is. As well, many SaaS applications still have upgrades or major releases. They don't require installs or rebooting, but they are unavailable for periods of time.

The perfect name for today's applications might be Netware, but it looks like Novell a bheil an teirm sin air a chomharrachadh. Is dòcha gum bi bathar-bog ag obair, ach tha e coltach C | Net is using that. It looks as though browserware may be a possibility – but it's an extra syllable.

Carson nach dèan thu bathar-bog?

The bottom line is that Webware (I didn't notice a trademark) is the next evolution of our applications. Today, there really is no need for applications to stop running. We have hundreds of pages in our application at work and can spin up new pages without ever taking down the old ones. I'm sure a little bit of development could happen as well where users can transitions can occur between the old and the new applications.

Databases can be replicated on the fly, or new temporary tables can be built to accomodate the transition. Sure, it's extra work, but my point is that it's possible. We don't have to interrupt our customers anymore.

I don't have a working floppy drive in my home. I rarely utilize my CD/DVD, either. Virtually everything I do is now web-based. When I do download and install software, I usually save a copy on my Buffalo Tech draibhear lìonra.

Even in business, it's not necessary. When I started up Indiana nas lugha for Pat Coyle, we didn't go with a host. The application is built and hosted with Ning. Tha a h-uile suidheachadh fearainn againn a ’comharrachadh GOOGLE APPS far an urrainn dhuinn post-d a chleachdadh a bharrachd air Google Docs. Gun bhathar-cruaidh, gun bhathar-bog… ach bathar-lìn.

Why don't we call it Webware?

    Is fìor thoil leam na h-aplacaidean stèidhichte air an lìon a tha a ’leantainn air adhart a’ nochdadh agus a ’cur ris an inneal agam. Bidh mi a ’cleachdadh Google Docs mar crazy agus airson cuideigin a bhios a’ cleachdadh 3-4 diofar choimpiutairean ann an aon latha, tha e na shàbhalaiche-beatha.

    Ach, a h-uile uair a thòisicheas mi a ’cleachdadh seirbheis ùr stèidhichte air an lìon, tha an guth beag seo an-còmhnaidh ann an cùl mo chinn ag èigheachd air falbh aig aon àm. Is e a ’phuing sin, nuair a chailleas mi an ceangal eadar-lìn agam, bidh mi a’ call ruigsinneachd air na Google Docs gu lèir, an stòr-dàta agam de fhàirdealan teachdaichean, mo phost-d, mo IM, na dealbhan gun àireamh agam air Flickr, msaa.

    Tha an gluasad seo a dh ’ionnsaigh bathar-lìn ag adhbhrachadh gun cuir sinn barrachd is barrachd de na h-uighean againn ann an aon bhasgaid. Agus an uairsin bidh sinn a ’ceangal ròpa fada ris a’ bhasgaid sin agus ga thionndadh a-mach don fhànais. Cho fad ‘s a tha an ròpa ceangailte, tha a h-uile dad milis. Ach nuair a dh ’fhalbh an ròp sin, is dòcha gum bi mi às aonais cumhachd cuideachd.

    Tha mi creidsinn gur e a ’phuing a tha agam an seo, airson gum bi Webware a’ toirt dheth dha-rìribh, gu bheil feum againn air ruigsinneachd nas earbsaiche, sgaoilteach agus gun fheum air an eadar-lìn. Agus chan eil brabhsair lìn air an fhòn agad an aon rud. Seadh, is urrainn dhomh mo laptop a cheangal ris an fhòn-làimhe verizon agam agus surf, ach ma thèid mi thairis air crìoch bann sònraichte no luchdachadh sìos ann an aon mhìos, gheibh mi bròg. Chan fheum mi an seòrsa cuideam sin.

    Gu h-èibhinn bu chòir dhut iomradh a thoirt air seo. Bha mi dìreach ag innse do neach-dèiligidh an-dè gu bheil uimhir den bhathar-bog a tha mi a ’ruith ann dìreach air an eadar-lìn mar thagraidhean lìn. A-nis tha fios agam dè a chanas mi ris an stuth seo ... bathar-lìn!

    Tha mi air a bhith ag ràdh an aon rud airson ùine mhòr ... Bidh mi an-còmhnaidh a ’toirt iomradh air aplacaidean CMS / Air-loidhne mar bathar-lìn mar-thà ... tha mi a’ cur iongnadh orm nach cluinn sinn mu dheidhinn tuilleadh.

    Tha bathar-bog math. A dh ’aithghearr, bidh a h-uile companaidh coimpiutair / IT mòr a’ dol an aghaidh a ’bhathair aca air an lìon. Is e seo an gluasad agus fhathast a ’tòiseachadh a’ tachairt le teachd bathar-bog a tha ag obair air an lìon.
