(PDF) Concept of an Accelerator-Driven Advanced Nuclear Energy System
This is that chinese ASDR concept using solid micrograins as a pumpable solid coolant that doubles as the neutron spallation target for the particle accelerator. Apparently there were concerns over the thermal shock from a beam trip event requiring a more robust neutron target.

The PDF contains info on wheelguns, giant counterrotating flywheel hoops in space to supply power to SDI weapons, mainly railguns/particle accelerator cannons/free electron lasers that need huge amounts of power right now. Appears to expect to be trickle charged over time by a small space nuclear reactor (SNAP? atomic teakettle?). Also has an interesting microwave power beaming scenario from a nuke in mars synchronous orbit to a ground rover, high performance radiators, including a fabric heatpipe radiator, a curie point magnetic liquid droplet radiator, and other power conversion concepts.

Chinese researchers achieve breakthrough in nuclear energy -
So the main trick behind ADANES is using a tungsten grain based solid neutron spallation target that pumps like a liquid, giving fluid properties but solid heat capabilities (to better survive beam trip transients), and the potential to be a windowless particle beam target (improving lifetime).

So their magic sauce is a FPGA image that does SQL offload acceleration, currently implemented as an Altera PCIe card. But when Intel moves to Xeons with integrated Altera FPGA's, they'll be able to work a CPU/main memory speeds. Not like they are slow currently.

So they are using a lesser plasma to be a gain medium for a laser, to make a more laser, to make a stronger plasma wakefield, for a particle accelerator. Rather than starting out with a really powerful laser. Implies tabletop accelerator may be easier now.

3U PCIe Gen3 expansion chassis. Uses internal PCIe switches and up to 4 x16 uplinks, so at full loadout, every 2 cards share a x16 path to the parent host, so it isn't what you would call 1:1 though. Good enough if you just need raw card numbers or physical space though.

New tricks to get fiber lasers working together in concert, with high wavelength sync. With pulse fiber lasers, the potential exists to create very high performance laser particle accelerators, with lengths measured in cm, not km. Of course, this has potential for other applications involving high power and duration lasers.

Basically, a long cylinder shaped charge packet traveling fast enough is repelled from surrounding materials (including conductive metals) if it is traveling fast enough oriented along the long axis. Which basically means accelerator design improvements to reduce required hardware may be possible.

Oddball electric thruster whose operating mechanic isn't fully understood. Seems to be able to use both the electric and magnetic fields at the same time for better efficiency, and so far it seems to be power limited as far as scaling goes (but something about 50% efficiency in context, so where does the rest of energy go? heat?)

Justifying FS-Cache []
FS-Cache seems to have been merged into the 2.6.30 kernel so is available for NFS systems. Somebody ought to make a nice little VMware VM appliance to grab local RDM SSD's for FS-Cache to grab external NFS shares, then refeed that to the VMware host server as a local NFS datastore. Though that Marvel Dragonfly hardware accelerator which links directly into VMware drivers is probably faster (though less generic).

Bcache - BcacheWiki
Interesting work on a filesystem agnostic block device cache implementation using SSD's, as a linux kernel patch. Very similar to ZFS' L2ARC cache which is also intended for use with SSD's. But the big difference is that this is a read/write cache, so technically it is a hybrid of ZIL and L2ARC. Creator works for Google, so this might have legs...

Marvell Launches New DragonFly Virtual Storage Accelerator [SNW Spring 2011] |
This appears at first glance to be a server local caching card that uses local SSD's, with drivers that hook into the hypervisor's network storage drivers (probably iSCSI, maybe NFS) as a transparent network storage caching layer local to a hypervisor, reducing network IO. Which is an interesting way towards boosting speed, since many VM servers using network storage have idle/empty storage slots onboard.
