TOFFEE/TOFFEE-DataCenter - Paid Support/Consultation - FAQ

Before you reach me regarding TOFFEE/TOFFEE-DataCenter, here is a quick check-list and FAQ:

  • like I mentioned in many videos: TOFFEE-DataCenter, I currently support only as a part of paid consultation that too for large OEMs/manufacturers and other infrastructure (ISP/SD-WAN/CDN, etc) providers.

  • TOFFEE/TOFFEE-DataCenter is not a product. It is a project coupled by a decade of research and the eco-system.

  • I am not a salesman nor I represent/sell some product. I am an expert, researcher, architect and consultant who can assist you in areas (listed above) of my capabilities. But most importantly network data (WAN) acceleration and optimization.

  • How active is the community is on this project? Are you the only contributor? Is it still an active project? (its a question I got from someone)
    >> I am not interested in a community project. Although earlier when I started TrafficSqueezer, I desired to build a community. The problem with a community is that they often lose the focus. Everyone will have their opinion. The focus will be more on managing human resources (a community in this case) rather than achieving anything serious research and productive outcome. There are so many open-source projects which are active and thriving at one point of time, but eventually, they lose interest and becomes defunct. Although Linux Kernel project is one exception. So eventually I choose to stay independent, focused and drive it myself the way I want.

    >> yes, of course, it is an active project. Hope you can see constant action and updates.

  • How TOFFEE/TOFFEE-DataCenter is different than Riverbed/Silver-Peak WAN Optimization?
    Advantages of TOFFEE/TOFFEE-DataCenter vs Riverbed/Silver-Peak WAN Optimization?
    >> for all such FAQs, kindly watch fully (without skipping) my lengthy youtube video:

  • OEM/Vendors: Can you spend some time and help me arrange for a demo in our infrastructure before I/we pay/authorize for your consultation?
    Because we need to assess whether it fits in our infrastructure and our needs, etc.
    >> A big NO. Once again I am not a sales man and the reason: Russian old folk tale - The Little Red Hen. WAN Optimization research is extremely time consuming, expensive and yet creative stuff. You can do network optimization in million ways. So far I tried is to build my own rocket (TOFFEE or TrafficSqueezer whatever I call it) which can get into space in my backyard. It doesn't matter its a Rocket made by NASA or SpaceX or by me, a rocket is a rocket. It is complicated and an expensive thing. Similarly the WAN Optimization tech too. It is open-source, so naturally you don't have to pay for per-device license fee, etc. But instead you are paying me for my time, support and assistance.

TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization software development - Update: 19-Aug-2016 ↗
Monday' 06-Jul-2020
This is my next software development update of TOFFEE-DataCenter which I am working since past few weeks. I was very busy in implementing the core TOFFEE-DataCenter components along with prototyping, benchmarking, implementing and testing the same. However today is the first time ever I did a fresh new CLI interface for the upcoming new TOFFEE-DataCenter.

Introducing TrueBench - a high resolution CPU benchmarking system ↗
Monday' 06-Jul-2020
TrueBench is an unique open-source benchmarking system in which the core system performance and efficiency parameters are measured at extreme high resolution in the order of several million/billion µ-seconds for a given specific task. TrueBench is a part of The TOFFEE Project research. With TrueBench Raspberry Pi 3, Raspberry Pi 2B, Raspberry Pi 2 and other embedded SoC devices are benchmarked and you can do a comparative analysis with standard mainstream x86 devices.

Replacing in Lab Intel Core i7 5820K Desktop PC with Intel Celeron 1037U Mini-PC ↗
Monday' 06-Jul-2020
As a research experiment I replaced my Intel Core i7 5820K desktop PC with my Intel Celeron 1037U Mini-PC as my everyday desktop system. This is an attempt to reduce my overall monthly power consumption. As well an attempt to do feasibility tests and research to know how far Mini PC will dominate the market in future and to study the real potential of Mini PCs.

My Lab Battery Purchase and Service logs for Research ↗
Monday' 06-Jul-2020
Here is a complete log of my lab battery purchase, service record which I maintain in Google drive. These I use for my home (or my family generic use) as well as a part of my home lab. I maintain a detailed log this way to monitor the failure rate of these batteries. This will allow me to select a specific brand/model which has higher success rate and to monitor any premature failure/expiry. The service log helps me to monitor and schedule the next service routine so that I can maintain these batteries in tip-top condition.
