With the growing number of devices connected to the Cloud/Internet, data is being generated from many different sources including smartphones, tablets, and Internet of Things devices. The demand for storage is growing every year. The combination of the Intel® Xeon® processor family and the Intel® Intelligent Storage Library (Intel® ISA-L) can provide developers with the tools to process data securely and quickly and even reduce storage space requirements.

Multicore processors have been around for many years, and today, they can be found in most devices. However, many developers are doing what they’ve always done: creating single-threaded programs. They’re not taking advantage of all the extra processing power. Imagine you have many tasks to perform and many people to perform them, but you are using only one person because you don’t know how to ask for more. It’s inefficient. Users are paying for extra power, but their software is not allowing them to use it.
Sometimes when technology changes, you can't really see yourself using the new features, especially in a business setting. However, I don't think anyone will have that problem with the move to wire free PCs. (Or why to care about Wi terms: WiDi, WiGig/WiDock, Wireless Charging, )
For any of you still thinking of the Chromebook™ notebook computer as just a consumer browsing device, think again. It's no longer just notebook computers running the Chrome OS™ operating system, it's also Chromebox™ computing devices, ChromeBase,* and more - indicating form factor is not a blocking issue. And with virtualization, these systems can run Windows apps on Chrome OS from Microsoft* Office* to intense graphic apps with minimal impact on latency or power drain.
Are you ready to innovate - four new Virtualization technologies on the latest Intel® Xeon!

Back in the old days, one only needed to think about ME (Intel® Manageability Engine) Firmware if one was using Intel® Active Management Technology (AMT) on Intel® vProTM Technology systems.
The list below summarizes new features in the Intel® C++ Compiler 15.0 and the Intel® Fortran Compiler 15.0. For more details about changes in the Intel compilers since the previous release, including a list of new options, please refer to the ‘What’s New’ section in the release notes (C++, Fortran).
