Intel Finally Serious About Switching with Barefoot Networks Buy

In one fell swoop, Intel has finally filled a giant hole in its switching product line by acquiring upstart Barefoot Networks, the creator of the P4 programming language for networking devices and the “Tofino” family of Ethernet switch ASICs that make use of it.

Future Kubernetes Will Mimic What Facebook Already Does

If you want to see what the future of the Kubernetes container management system will look like, then the closed source, homegrown Tupperware container control system that Facebook has been using and evolving since 2011 – before Docker containers and Kubernetes were around – might be a good place to find inspiration.

Where Does Nvidia Go In The Datacenter From Here?

We have to admit that it is often a lot more fun watching an upstart carve out whole new slices of business, or create them out of what appears to be thin air, in the datacenter than it is to watch how it will respond to intense competitive pressures and somehow manage to keep growing despite that.

Those Without Persistent Memory Are Fated To Repeat It

We have published a number of stories lately that talk about the innovative uses of Intel’s 3D XPoint Optane persistent memory modules, which are a key component of the company’s “Cascade Lake” Xeon SP systems and which are also becoming a foundational technology in clustered storage based on NVM-Express over Fabrics interconnects from a number of storage upstarts.

DUG Sets Foundation For Exascale HPC Utility With Xeon Phi

While exascale systems, even at the single precision computational capability commonly used in the oil and gas industry, will cost on the order of $250 million, that cost pales in comparison to the capital outlay of drilling exploratory deep water wells, which can cost $100 million a pop.

AWS Is Now The Largest Systems Business In The World

Considering all of the hundreds of different moving parts, as gauged by different types of features and services, that Amazon Web Services delivers on its public cloud, and the ever-increasing complexity of the AWS platform, it is pretty amazing that the cloud juggernaut can delivery pretty consistently growing revenue growth.

Common Componentry Is The Key to Edge Architectures

The edge has caught the imagination of IT vendors, who envision a place well outside of the confines of the central datacenter but not quite in the cloud where the vast amounts of data that are being generated by billions of devices, systems and sensors can be quickly captured, stored, processed and analyzed in as close to real time as possible.
