There’s a trio of buzzwords that are starting to spend more time in proximity to each other, and are also beginning to surface from the technical to the business world. Each by itself is critical, and when you combine all three, the business-level effect becomes very noticeable. These buzzwords and the business descriptors are: Kubernetes: […]

After many years of working in the IT industry, both as an IT manager in a large telecommunications setup and as a consultant providing solutions to my clients, I’ve come to see a huge interest among users in leveraging more open source software and standards. It comes as no surprise to me that the adoption […]
GPUs, AI, ML, oh my! What a week we had at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC) in San Jose! From major announcements with NVIDIA to the launch of the world’s first GPU-accelerated pedicabs (did you catch a ride?) there’s …
Today, I am excited to announce our plans to open a new AWS Region in Indonesia! The new AWS Asia Pacific (Jakarta) Region will be composed of three Availability Zones, and will give AWS customers and partners the ability to run workloads and store data in Indonesia.
The AWS Asia Pacific (Jakarta) Region will be our ninth Region in Asia Pacific. It joins existing Regions in Beijing, Mumbai, Ningxia, Seoul, Singapore, Sydney, and Tokyo, as well as an upcoming Region in Hong Kong SAR. AWS customers are already using 61 Availability Zones across 20 infrastructure Regions worldwide. Today's announcement brings the total number of global Regions (operational and announced) up to 25.
“Distributed locks aren’t real”, some like to remind us. This is not to say that locking in a distributed system isn’t possible, but only that all of its components must cooperate in the protocol. Anyone who’s trying to sell you a distributed lock in a single component is selling you sawdust and lies. What we […]

The most important new skills for business leaders are not what you might think. You’ve read the headlines. Data is the new oil; it’s the new currency; data capital can create competitive advantage. We also hear, over and over again, that machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) are the future. Few will dispute that these things are true, but the trite language masks a deeper challenge. Data must be collected, analyzed, and acted upon in the right way and at the right time for a business to create value from it. ML and AI are only as powerful as …
Sometimes more is more. Why make tradeoffs when we don’t have to? For candy lovers, the classic example is a peanut butter cup. Why choose between savory peanut butter or sweet chocolate? Have both. Similarly, you can have both a thin and powerful notebook PC. And, for you basketball fans, why choose between ball handling ...continue reading Sometimes more is more.

Are you ready to take full advantage of an all-NVMe* system? The advantages of all-NVMe storage systems are being discovered now. Elimination of the storage subsystem as a bottleneck represents a paradox shift. If your HCI vendor qualifies all NVMe drives, but still uses legacy protocols and underpowered CPUs, you are leaving performance on the ...continue reading Put your Applications into Hyperdrive with the Next Generation HyperFlex All NVMe* HCI with Intel® Optane™ DC SSD
Run, run as fast as you can… You can’t catch me… I am the Microsoft S2D* plus Intel® Optane™ SSD man! Performance has always been a popular discussion topic among system architects. And, when the solution design is put to the test, sometimes it feels like more could have been done. When testing all NVMe*-based ...continue reading The Fast and the Furiously Fast Storage
When you work in IT, you’re used to being asked to do more with less. While virtualization has been central to achieving this goal, it is, in itself, no longer enough. Key to delivering greater efficiency and optimal resource management is the ability to seamlessly migrate workloads to their most efficient location. Imagine, for example, ...continue reading Nine Steps to Efficient, Practical VM and Container Migration

By 2020, the ratio of training deep learning models to inference within enterprises will rapidly shift to 1:51 , versus 1:1 where we see it today. Intel refers to this impending shift as ‘inference at scale’ – and it marks deep learning’s coming of age moment. Why? Because whereas training focuses on feeding and inputting ...continue reading Monetizing AI: How to Get Ready for ‘Inference at Scale’
