Just a quick note to say that I arrived this morning in San Francisco to participate in IDF 2013! I find it all very exciting... I am speaking on the tomorrow afternoon on Intel Platform technologies and the cloud, going to use Meshcentral.com as an example of how anyone can leverage Intel technologies to make cloud services better. Information about my session:
When: Monday, Sept. 9, 2013 1:00p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
No, not the candy bar (though I could really go for a Milky Way Midnight bar right now). I'm thinking of the Milky Way 2 (Tianhe-2) computer system at the National Supercomputing Center in Guangzhou China. This machine incorporates 32,000 12-core Intel Xeon processors (E5-2600 v2) and 48,000 Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors.
Writing Energy-Efficient Windows* Store Applications for Mobile Devices [Eng., PDF 753KB]
В настоящее время повсеместно применяются различные мобильные устройства: смартфоны, планшеты, ультрабуки и т. п. Все они работают от аккумуляторов. Время работы от аккумулятора крайне важно для конечных пользователей: всем хочется, чтобы устройство работало без подзарядки как можно дольше.
The need for mobile devices with long lasting battery life has become more and more pronounced in an ever-connected world. Both high-tech societies and people living in rural areas with limited power resources can benefit greatly from more power-efficient computing devices. In this paper we provide a methodology for identifying the power efficiency issues and optimizing the power consumption for client platforms running on Linux*-based operating systems. The methods detailed here are applicable to the kernel, drivers, and user-mode software stacks.
The challenge of extracting value from big data is similar in many ways to the age-old problem of distilling business intelligence from transactional data. Apache Hadoop* has emerged as a de facto standard for offloading the “Extract, Transform & Load,” (ETL) of big data. This whitepaper examines some of the platform hardware and software considerations in using Hadoop for ETL.
