IBM Db2 Family

DB2IBM DB2pureQuery
In mid-2006, IBM announced "Viper," which is the codename for DB2 9 on both distributed platforms and z/OS. DB2 9 for z/OS was announced in early 2007. IBM claimed that the new DB2 was the first relational database to store XML "natively". Other enhancements include OLTP-related improvements for distributed platforms, business intelligence/data warehousing-related improvements for z/OS, more self-tuning and self-managing features, additional 64-bit exploitation (especially for virtual storage on z/OS), stored procedure performance enhancements for z/OS, and continued convergence of the SQL vocabularies between z/OS and distributed platforms.


REXX and NetRexx
A Rexx script or command is sometimes referred to as an EXEC in a nod to the CMS file type used for EXEC, EXEC 2 and REXX scripts on CP/CMS and VM/370 through z/VM. Rexx has the following characteristics and features: Rexx has just twenty-three, largely self-evident, instructions (such as,, and ) with minimal punctuation and formatting requirements. It is essentially an almost free-form language with only one data-type, the character string; this philosophy means that all data are visible (symbolic) and debugging and tracing are simplified.

Docker (software)

DockerDocker containersDocker Swarm
Docker can package an application and its dependencies in a virtual container that can run on any Linux server. This helps provide flexibility and portability enabling the application to be run in various locations, whether on-premises, in a public cloud, or in a private cloud. Docker uses the resource isolation features of the Linux kernel (such as cgroups and kernel namespaces) and a union-capable file system (such as OverlayFS) to allow containers to run within a single Linux instance, avoiding the overhead of starting and maintaining virtual machines. Because Docker containers are lightweight, a single server or virtual machine can run several containers simultaneously.

Z with stroke

Ƶvariant with a stroke
Germans, Italians, French and Spanish often use this sign in the hand-writing as the letter Z, as do others. In Greek, it is a handwritten form of the letter Ξ. The horizontal stroke distinguishes it from its Ζ counterpart. Ƶ and ƶ are also used by mathematicians, scientists, and engineers as variants of [[Z|Z and z]] in hand-written equations to avoid confusion with the numeral 2. The Unicode standard specifies two codepoints: *

Amazon Machine Image

Amazon LinuxAmazon Linux AMIAmazon Machine Images (AMI)
An Amazon Machine Image (AMI) is a special type of virtual appliance that is used to create a virtual machine within the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud ("EC2"). It serves as the basic unit of deployment for services delivered using EC2. Like all virtual appliances, the main component of an AMI is a read-only filesystem image that includes an operating system (e.g., Linux, Unix, or Windows) and any additional software required to deliver a service or a portion of it. An AMI includes the following: The AMI filesystem is compressed, encrypted, signed, split into a series of 10 MB chunks and uploaded into Amazon S3 for storage.


LXC containersContainerLinux containers
LXC provides operating system-level virtualization through a virtual environment that has its own process and network space, instead of creating a full-fledged virtual machine. LXC relies on the Linux kernel cgroups functionality that was released in version 2.6.24. It also relies on other kinds of namespace isolation functionality, which were developed and integrated into the mainline Linux kernel. Originally, LXC containers were not as secure as other OS-level virtualization methods such as OpenVZ: in Linux kernels before 3.8, the root user of the guest system could run arbitrary code on the host system with root privileges, much like chroot jails.


The output of a compiler that produces code for a virtual machine (VM) may or may not be executed on the same platform as the compiler that produced it. For this reason such compilers are not usually classified as native or cross compilers. The lower level language that is the target of a compiler may itself be a high-level programming language. C, viewed by some as a sort of portable assembly language, is frequently the target language of such compilers. For example, Cfront, the original compiler for C++, used C as its target language.

Latvian language

The letters C, S and Z, that in unmodified form are pronounced, and respectively, can be marked with a caron. These marked letters, Č, Š and Ž are pronounced, and respectively. The letters Ģ, Ķ, Ļ and Ņ are written with a cedilla or little 'comma' placed below (or above the lowercase g). They are modified (palatalized) versions of G, K, L and N and represent the sounds,, and. Non-standard varieties of Latvian add extra letters to this standard set. Latvian spelling has almost perfect correspondence between graphemes and phonemes. Every phoneme has its own letter so that a reader doesn't need to learn how a word is pronounced and a writer doesn't need to learn how a word is written.

Dz (digraph)

[[Dž|DŽ, Dž and dž]] (Dz with a caron over z), a digraph used in the Croatian, Bosnian, and Slovak alphabets as a letter in its own right, are encoded at U+01C4, U+01C5 and U+01C6 respectively. ʣ, a ligature of lowercase dz, historically used to represent the Voiced alveolar affricate in the International Phonetic Alphabet, is encoded at U+02A3. ʥ, a ligature of lowercase dz with a curl on the z, historically used to represent the Voiced alveolo-palatal affricate in the IPA, is encoded at U+02A5. ꭦ, a ligature of lowercase dz with retroflex hook, used in Sinological and Tibetanist transcription for a voiced retroflex affricate, is encoded at U+AB66. ʤ (dezh), a ligature of lowercase d and ezh (a z with

Inari Sami language

Inari SamiInari SámiInari
Inari Sami (anarâškielâ, "the Inarian language", or aanaarsämikielâ, "the Inari (Aanaar) Sami language") is a Sami language spoken by the Inari Sami of Finland. It has approximately 300 speakers, the majority of whom are middle-aged or older and live in the municipality of Inari. According to the Sami Parliament of Finland, 269 persons used Inari Sami as their first language. It is the only Sami language that is spoken exclusively in Finland. The language is classified as being seriously endangered as few children learn it, although more and more children are learning it in language nests.


The Phoenician letter gave rise to the Greek zeta, Etruscan z, Latin Z, and Cyrillic Ze З. The Phoenician letter appears to be named after a sword or other weapon. In Biblical Hebrew, ' means "sword", and the verb ' means "to arm". In Modern Hebrew slang, ' means "penis" and ' is a vulgar term which generally means to perform sexual intercourse, although the older meaning survives in ' ("armed struggle"), ' ("armed forces"), and ("armed, i.e., reinforced concrete"). The Proto-Sinaitic glyph may have been called ziqq, based on a hieroglyph depicting a "manacle". The letter is named.


LongView Technologies
The firm was bought by Sun Microsystems in 1997, and the team got focused on Java, releasing the HotSpot virtual machine, and work on Strongtalk stalled. Sun released the 1997 re-implementation of Strongtalk as open-source software under a revised BSD license, including the Strongtalk system image in 2002, and the virtual machine in 2006. Strongtalk is touted as the fastest implementation of Smalltalk. Strongtalk is available for Windows XP (other ports are in the works) and includes a basic development environment. * Strongtalk at Google Code Chrome V8, JavaScript engine. JavaScript.

The Africa Orthology contained the following letters: * a b c d e ɛ f g gb gh h i j k kp l m n ŋ ny o ɔ ɵ p r s sh t u v w y z gw kw nw In the early 1960s, the Nigerian government committee created the Ọnwụ orthography, named after committee chairman S. E. Ọnwụ, to replace the Africa Orthography as the official Igbo orthography. Ọnwụ consists of 28 consonants and 8 vowels. Up until the present, it has been utilized in government publications, academic environments, journalism, and literary works.


Palo Alto Tiny BASICTinyBASICTiny BASIC programming language
For some implementations, including the first Tiny BASIC and Tom Pittman's Tiny BASIC, a virtual machine was used, others such as Palo Alto Tiny BASIC and 6800 Tiny BASIC, were direct interpreters. In a virtual machine implementation, the Tiny BASIC interpreter is itself run on a virtual machine interpreter. The designer's idea to use an application virtual machine goes back to Val Schorre (with META II, 1964) and Glennie (Syntax Machine). The following table gives a partial list of the commands of the virtual machine in which the first Tiny BASIC interpreter was written. The length of the whole interpreter program was only 120 virtual machine operations.

ICore Virtual Accounts

iCore Virtual Accounts is free download OS level virtualization (container-based virtualization) for Microsoft Windows XP. The program is an isolated virtual machine that runs on top of the existing hardware and operating system. It allows the user to create multiple virtual "accounts" (virtual machines) that can be easily created or deleted without affecting each other's state or the state of the core operating system. Such machines create and capture the output of a virtual "account" inside a virtual disk. Only the changes to specific files and programs accessible to that virtual account will be stored in the virtual disk attached to that account.


ƷƷ ʒ
As a phonetic symbol, it originates with Isaac Pitman's English Phonotypic Alphabet in 1847, as a z with an added hook. The symbol is based on medieval cursive forms of Latin z, evolving into the blackletter z letter. In Unicode, however, the blackletter z ("tailed z", German geschwänztes Z) is considered a glyph variant of z, and not an ezh. In contexts where "tailed z" is used in contrast to tail-less z, notably in standard transcription of Middle High German, Unicode ʒ is sometimes used, strictly speaking incorrectly. Unicode offers ȥ "z with hook" as a grapheme for Middle High German coronal fricative instead.

Virtual machine escape

In computer security, virtual machine escape is the process of breaking out of a virtual machine and interacting with the host operating system. A virtual machine is a "completely isolated guest operating system installation within a normal host operating system". In 2008, a vulnerability (CVE-2008-0923) in VMware discovered by Core Security Technologies made VM escape possible on VMware Workstation 6.0.2 and 5.5.4. A fully working exploit labeled Cloudburst was developed by Immunity Inc. for Immunity CANVAS (commercial penetration testing tool).

FreeBSD jail

jailjailsBSD jails
The FreeBSD jail does not however achieve true virtualization; it does not allow the virtual machines to run different kernel versions than that of the base system. All virtual servers share the same kernel and hence expose the same bugs and potential security holes. There is no support for clustering or process migration, so the host kernel and host computer is still a single point of failure for all virtual servers. It is possible to use jails to safely test new software, but not new kernels. FreeBSD jails are an effective way to increase the security of a server because of the separation between the jailed environment and the rest of the system (the other jails and the base system).

Disk image

disc imageVirtual disk imagedisk imaging
A hard disk image is interpreted by a Virtual Machine Monitor as a system administrator using terms of naming, a hard disk image for a certain Virtual Machine monitor has a specific file. Hard drive imaging is used in several major application areas: There are two schemes predominant across all Virtual Machine Monitor implementations: There are two modes in which a disk can be mapped for a virtual machine: Some backup programs only back up user files; boot information and files locked by the operating system, such as those in use at the time of the backup, may not be saved on some operating systems. A disk image contains all files, faithfully replicating all data.


The names were abandoned in Latin, which instead referred to the letters by adding a vowel (usually e) before or after the consonant; the two exceptions were Y and Z, which were borrowed from the Greek alphabet rather than Etruscan, and were known as Y Graeca "Greek Y" (pronounced I Graeca "Greek I") and zeta (from Greek)—this discrepancy was inherited by many European languages, as in the term zed for Z in all forms of English other than American English. Over time names sometimes shifted or were added, as in double U for W ("double V" in French), the English name for Y, and American zee for Z.
