I am back in my hotel after the first day at IDF2013. I did not do any of the fun stuff today, but I did work... practiced my session content and in mid-afternoon delivered a session on Meshcentral.com and Intel platform features, it was a lot of fun! Thank you to everyone that attended. Tomorrow I am doing it again, this time two 2 hour labs back-to-back.
This Configuration and Deployment Guide explores one of the leading Not Only Structured Query
Language (NoSQL) database, Cassandra, on Intel® Architecture. The configuration guidelines address
use cases with both Intel Xeon® processor- and Atom™ processor-based servers that take into account
differing business scenarios, performance requirements and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) objectives.
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:
This Configuration and Deployment Guide explores designing and building object storage environments based on OpenStack* Swift* in cloud environments, where responsiveness and enery costs are critical factors. High-performance, energy-efficient microservers, such as those based on the latest generation of Intel® Atom™ processors and Intel® Xeon® E3 processors, meet these requirements. The guide uses data from recent benchmarks conducted by Intel® Software and Services Group on Intel Atom processor and Intel Xeon E3 processor-based microservers.
[Opinion: The Ridiculous Tablet vs. PC Debate that wasn't]
Let me just get this out of the way so you know where I stand. Tablets are another PC form factor. It's just that simple. To claim otherwise comes off as trying to be sensationalistic to sell a story, naive, or possibly disingenous. Sound too harsh? Well allow me to explain as I'd rather not be on the side that's confusing and obfuscating what's really going on inside the complexities of the PC market. Let's dissect what a PC is and why a Tablet is one.
