The Intel® AtomTM processor C2000 product1 family has a subset of server products that include enhanced communications features. This communications focused product line codenamed “Rangeley” extends the base Intel® AtomTM processor C2000 product family with greater communications reliability, longer product lifecycle, enhanced thermal profiles, and Intel® QuickAssist Technology to accelerate cryptographic workloa
Solid-state drives (SSD) have rapidly evolved over the last few years, resulting in devices with more space and greater reliability. SSDs are used for caching in data centers and in larger system applications including computing massive data sets (big data: volume, variety, and velocity). This blog shares some features of Intel® SSD, illustrates the potential uses of SSDs in the cloud, and provides some general Linux guidelines to fully utilize Intel SSDs.
Some key features of Intel SSDs
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:
Suppose that a nurse is assisting a patient in some hospital room and that the patient’s doctor is somewhere else in the facility. The nurse gathers vitals for the patient and enters the information into the computer. The nurse would like for the doctor to get this information “on the fly” without having to pull him or her into the room to look at the computer. Solution? Push notifications! What could happen is that when the vitals are entered, the doctor receives a push notification from some cloud service, wherever he or she may be. Thus, this is an example where cloud service
In my previous blog, I discussed “Ways to Speeding up Your Cloud Environment…”, I will continue with this thread by introducing the topic of Software Defined Networks (SDN). The industry has been depending on proprietary networking equipment and appliances, essentially creating an environment requiring vertical integrated software running on dedicated hardware.
