Ubuntu 15.04 Provides Openstack Kilo Preinstalled for Easier Deployments on ONP Servers
By Thomas K. (Intel) Posted on 05/26/15 0
The folks here at Intel see me as a bit of an Ubuntu fanboy.  For the most part, I spend a lot of time in the lab working on the ONP Server using CentOS.   For me, it is less about being an Ubuntu fan and more about using a platform that is easier choice for Openstack developers.    I recently ha...

By Clay Breshears (Intel) Posted on 10/27/11 13
Okay, so it's not something that I would promote as "New & Improved"  with big splashy TV commercials, like some laundry detergent or kids' sugary drink. I would be more likely to skip the trumpets and play a fanfare on a kazoo instead. Even so, I'm excited to announce that the Intel Guide f...
Is your memory management multi-core ready?
By Roman Dementiev (Intel) Posted on 08/21/09 13
Recently I have got a workload that could not scale beyond a few cores. This particular application is using one thread per user, so theoretically, if one has an 8-core machine then 8 concurrent users should fully utilize the machine giving 8x speedup compared to a sequential run. It did not happ...
Doctor Fortran in "Too Much of a Good Thing?"
By Steve Lionel (Intel) Posted on 01/23/09 13
A lot of Fortran programmers take the "belt and suspenders" approach to coding, with explicit declarations of every attribute they want for a symbol.  In general, this is good practice, especially when combined with IMPLICIT NONE to force you to say what you mean.  But some programmers take this ...

Today is the second anniversary of the Sun and Intel joint agreement to optimize the Solaris operating system for Intel Xeon processors.

Doctor Fortran in "I've Come Here For An Argument, Side 2"
By Steve Lionel (Intel) Posted on 07/10/09 11
My earlier post, "I've Come Here For An Argument", was very popular with my fellow support engineers, as it provided a convenient answer to questions they frequently receive.  (For me too, which in part is why I wrote it!)

By Asaf Shelly Posted on 10/21/11 11
This is not to say that compilers can automatically parallelize code. I would however really like to see that happen and here is an interesting and reliable way to parallelize operations.
