Disaster recovery system


Disclosed herein is a computer implemented method of performing recovery for a customer server system that has an associated backup of server system data of the customer server system, the method comprising the steps of: receiving a server recovery request at a portal for a rebuild of at least part of the customer server system; and, sending a request from the portal to a cloud-based data centre for on-demand provisioning of cloud-based server resources, wherein the request includes information on the location of at least part of the backup of the server system data to enable the deployment of a rebuild of at least part of the customer server system at the cloud-based data centre. Advantages include a user being able to easily manage disaster recovery testing as well as actual live recovery operations.

Position-only shading pipeline


In position-only shading, two geometry pipes exist, a trimmed down version called the cull pipe and a full version called the replay pipe. Thus, the cull pipe executes the position shaders in parallel with the main application, but typically generates the critical results much faster as it fetches and shades only the position attribute of the vertices and avoids the rasterization as well as the rendering of pixels for the frame buffer.
