Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Ordinarily, one thinks of video editing as a task requiring the lastest high-powered desktop hardware, a large array of fast storage devices, and two or more large monitors. Yet, it needn't be so, claims JayCut. The company earlier this year began offering web-server based video editing services accessible via standard browsers such as Firefox. The browser-based client provides the control interface, while all the heavyduty video processing happens on JayCut's remote servers.

"Now, JayCut has ported its second-generation browser application -- currently beta testing -- to Adobe's AIR platform. AIR, of course, is a client-side runtime that lets users install browser apps as if they were local applications. AIR is available for Linux, Mac, and Windows OSes, and has attracted lots of apps, including some that interface with web APIs from Twitter, eBay, Google Analytics, YouTube, and Pandora Radio, to name a few."
