In an ideal world, consumer-facing online businesses would deliver a consistent, efficient, and secure payment processing experience to their customers. Although there are lots of variables in running an e-commerce site, completing the sale is pretty much at the top of the list. When consumers go online to make purchases during a busy period such […]

There are places so remote, so harsh that humans can't safely explore them (for example, hundreds of miles below the earth, areas that experience extreme temperatures, or on other planets). These places might have important data that could help us better understand earth and its history, as well as life on other planets. But they usually have little to no internet connection, making the challenge of exploring environments inhospitable for humans seem even more impossible.

How do we push the boundaries of what's possible?

The answer to this question is actually on your phone, your smartwatch, and billions of other places on earth—it's the Internet of Things (IoT). Connected devices allow us to extend our senses to remote locations, such as a robot carrying out work on Mars or monitoring remote oil wells.

This is the exciting future for IoT, and it's closer than you think. Already, IoT is…

The limitations of a typical, traditional relational database management system (RDBMS) have forced all sorts of compromises on data processing systems: from limitations on database size, to the separation of transaction processing from analytics. One such compromise has been the “sharding” of various customer accounts into separate database instances, partly so each customer could fit on a single computer server – but, in a typical power law, or Zipf, distribution, the larger database don’t fit. In response, database administrators have had to implement semi-custom sharding schemes. Here, we describe these schemes, discuss their limitations, and show how an alternative, MemSQL, …

When I talk with healthcare organizations, I get a sense of urgency: a surgeon checks his computer screen one last time before embarking on a tricky operation. In the emergency room, a nurse accesses a patient’s medical history, checking for drug allergies. Four floors up, an obstetrician keeps a close eye on fetal heart monitor ...continue reading Cerner Is Using Intel® Optane™ Technology to Shape the Healthcare of Tomorrow
