AMD 3rd Gen Epyc CPUs Put Intel Xeon SPs On Ice In The Datacenter

SPONSORED Sometimes, bad things turn into excellent opportunities that can utterly transform markets. Many years hence, when someone writes the history of the datacenter compute business, they will judge AMD tapping Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp to etch the cores in its second and third generation Epyc server processors to be

Stepping On The Gas For Flash Performance

Steve Fingerhut looks to the GPU when explaining what his company, Pliops, is working to achieve. Driven by Nvidia over the past several years, GPUs have become the go-to processors for running artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning workloads in datacenters and in the cloud. In the same sense, Pliops,

AMD Is Finally Trusted In The Datacenter Again

This is how a competitive chip market is supposed to look, and this is how a competitive chip maker recovers from faults, competes against a seemingly unassailable foe, and then rides up the revenue and income curves to be able to invest in the future and profit from the present.

When It Comes To AI, Flash Is Getting Smaller And Bigger

Sponsored We all know AI and machine learning rely on vast amounts of data, just as we all know the Internet is largely cat videos and other user-generated content no one ever looks at. Although the latter may well account for a large amount of the 6.72 ZB of data

Microsoft Takes Sharper Aim at On-Prem HPC

Microsoft is intent on bending the supercomputing set its direction. Instead of just focusing on competing with other public clouds, they’re aiming directly at on-prem HPC, showing comparable or better performance to existing top 10 supercomputers, for example. “For years, HPC investments have been expensive up-front based on predictions– and

Want to make your storage sing? Then make sure it’s built for composability

SPONSORED If buoyant market figures are anything to go by, most enterprises already have a good grasp of the benefits of adopting hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI). By tightly integrating compute, storage and networking in a HCI platform, organizations gain a cookie cutter level of simplicity, ease of scalability and management – whether

Getting Hadoop to Jump Through AI/ML Hoops

Just a decade ago, the enterprise IT push was to make Hadoop the platform for storage and analytics. At that time, cloud hesitancy was still looming for large on-prem organizations. Hadoop, no matter how that ecosystem played out over the years, became a major source of investment with the idea

Facilities Investments Loom Large for Exascale Sites

Exascale systems are expensive but for labs retrofitting existing facilities for novel cooling, the compute, storage, network, and software are only the beginning of high costs. When exascale supercomputers are announced, everyone tends to focus on the cost and capabilities of the machines themselves but facilities-driven power and cooling, especially

What Are Quantum Hardware Startups Thinking?

Atom Computing adds itself to a growing list of quantum systems makers with pedigreed founders, funding announcements, and a market that even the big players haven’t mastered. With no acquisition/cash-out goals apparent, no established market to chase, and competitive differentiation so nuanced, what’s the game? If the last five years

IBM Starts Showing A Little Hybrid Vigor

IBM may not be the biggest provider of systems in terms of the size of its customer base, but of the top 5,000 or so companies worldwide that are not hyperscalers and cloud builders in their own right, Big Blue does have a sizeable share of the system budget. And

A Surprising New Job for ReRAM Technology

Resistive RAM (ReRAM) technology has been waiting for its moment in the sun for several years now. Despite its placement on the roadmaps of several chip manufacturers and as part of novel architectures like HPE’s shuttered memristor-based “The Machine” project, it never took off as a revolutionary memory technology, even
