Apache Helix: LinkedIn’s Framework for Distributed System Development | The New Stack
Distributed data systems are used in a variety of settings like online serving, offline analytics, data transport, and search, among other use cases. These start off with a single node solution that provides the core functionality e.g. it can be a database, messaging, search index etc. Building from a single node, requires not just a distributed system but also the different requirements that go with it. With these issues related to scaling in mind, we built Helix, a generic framework for developing distributed systems.

A solar cell that stores its own power: World's first 'solar battery' runs on light and air
Researchers at the Ohio State University have invented a solar battery -- a combination solar cell and battery -- which recharges itself using air and light. The design required a solar panel which captured light, but admitted air to the battery. Here, scanning electron microscope images show the solution: nanometer-sized rods of titanium dioxide (larger image) which cover the surface of a piece of titanium gauze (inset). The holes in the gauze are approximately 200 micrometers across, allowing air to enter the battery while the rods gather light. Credit: Yiying Wu, The Ohio State University.
