Intel Server Trends
The Intel-based server market is one of the most hotly contested segments in the industry. What are the key trends in this market, and what will they mean to

cpu coolers  vendor could stick a CPU or two in a chassis, add a SCSI or RAID controller and some RAM and disk drives and Presto! now there's a server!) Consolidation also means fiercer competition between the remaining vendors. Increased competition usually results in users benefits, either through reduced pricing as vendors fight to increase market share, or through increased functionality available. On the other hand, users may now find their choices effectively limited, similar to network TV before the rise of

Gateway Drops AMD


Gateway Inc. will phase out its use of CPUs from AMD.

cpu coolers  the Athlon, AMD's high-performing CPU, will also lose a valuable sales outlet at a time when it is trying to make a big push. Since Gateway owned the high-end (>$1500) home PC market in 1998 (19.9% market share vs. 15.8% for Compaq and 10.9% for Dell 2 ), this is potentially a major loss. (Presently, Gateway accounts for an estimated 5% of AMD's sales volume). In addition, this compounds AMD's cash flow problems operating losses in the last two quarters, combined with a drop in both processor sales Read More

IBM’s Big Data Strategy: Will the “Big Blue” Become the “Big Data” Company?


In a recent analyst briefing with IBM, the software and hardware provider revealed the details of its continued efforts to expand its big “big data” offerings. The three major announcements revealed by IBM are key to the company's efforts to consolidate its big data offerings and become the biggest player in the so-called big data space, but having to compete for the “big”gest piece of the pie

Linux Laptops from Dell


Dell now has begun selling two models of its laptops with Linux preinstalled.

This is in contrast to Dell's willingness to load Linux (i.e., the anti-Windows ) wherever it thinks it reasonable. We realize the situations are not exactly the same, but the parallels for the two dominant players in their respective fields cannot be ignored. User Recommendations In our attempt to sound like a broken record (forgive the archaic Read More

Microsoft .NET Enablement: Analysis and Cautions


Using technologies that are intrinsically compatible should result in faster and less costly development. Thus, any application suite rewritten in the Microsoft .NET managed code framework should not have to contend with inefficiencies resulting from mixing or wrapping technologies.

The necessary information is thereby encoded in a Microsoft Common Intermediate Language (MCIL or MSDIL) and associated metadata, or in symbolic information that describes all of the entry points and the constructs exposed in the MCIL (such as methods and properties) and their characteristics. The common language infrastructure (CLI) Read More

Intel Chip Shortage Continuing


Intel Corporation has yet again been unable to meet the shipment requirements of a major PC manufacturer. This time it is Dell, one of Intel's strongest allies.

After Intel muscled AMD out of Gateway through price cuts (See TEC News Analysis article: Gateway Drops AMD ), it only took them about three months to blow the deal (See TEC News Analysis article: Gateway, Jilted by Intel, Kisses and Makes Up with AMD ). Compound this with the bad press from the delays for the Coppermine chip, and the Rambus fiasco , and Intel starts Read More

HP’s LT 6000r Six-CPU Server


HP has re-entered the enterprise computing race with the release of its LT 6000r, a six-CPU server with improved performance and excellent transactional price/performance.

cpu coolers  raise the bar on CPU density for larger rackable systems. This product is an enterprise-class machine, geared toward larger computing environments. (Hewlett-Packard also released their NetServer LH 6000 at the same time. The LH 6000 is also a six-CPU server, but is more focused on internal disk expansion than on packing a bunch of CPUs into a rack.) The NetServer LT 6000r is aimed at those users who want to increase the number of computes per square foot of floor space. As floor space becomes more Read More

Netfinity servers in general are larger than similar offerings from competitors, leading to reduced density of CPUs and functionality in a rack. In years past, IBM was the 800-pound gorilla in the computer world. In recent years, they have suffered some stunning defeats, including the effective collapse of the Aptiva (home PC) product line. IBM is still strong in a number of areas, such as the proprietary AS/400, storage, software Read More

AMD Hooks Up with Transmeta - For Now


Advanced Micro Devices, Intel’s main CPU competition, has teamed up with Transmeta – another Intel competitor – in an effort to speed development on its 'Sledgehammmer' 64-bit processor.

What is different about these systems is that they will use the Crusoe processor and special code morphing software produced by Transmeta , a rival to both AMD and Intel Corporation . Market Impact This may help AMD reduce the gap between release of the Sledgehammer processor and release of compatible third-party software. AMD apparently believes that Transmeta's software can simulate the Read More

How to Use a Network Appliance SAN for Server and Storage Consolidation


If you’re dealing with increasing demands on your server storage by adding servers one at a time, the number of servers is growing hand in hand with management complexity, while stretching your IT budget. Make sure your data assets are covered—find out how server and storage consolidation storage systems can simplify storage management, increase flexibility, and advance data protection and disaster recovery.

cpu coolers  was Gigabit Ethernet. Overall CPU utilization was around 15% to 27%. Out of the box server deployment took as long as 2 months and as little as 3 weeks, depending on budgets and complexity. Storage provisioning was accomplished relatively quickly; however, many times an additional server was brought online due to running out of storage space. Managing the network infrastructure became increasingly complex as more and more servers were brought on line. The current data center at headquarters could house a Read More

August, 1999) Thus, it behooves Compaq to commit fully to making this effort a success. If Compaq is not willing to do what it takes to make Alpha a cost-effective alternative, as well as a volume player in the marketplace, then it should either sell off the remainder of Alpha to someone who will commit, or cut their losses.

Great Product: Too Bad The Architecture Doesn’t Fit


During the process of product selection a great deal of attention is given to the functional capabilities of the software being evaluated. While this aspect is obviously important, ignoring the technical mechanisms by which the software actually operates can be fatal to a project. In this document we explain how to avoid the pitfalls.

Thinking Radically about Data Warehousing and Big Data: Interview with Roger Gaskell, CTO of Kognitio


Managing data—particularly in large numbers—still is and probably will be the number one priority for many organizations in the upcoming years. Many of the traditional ways to store and analyze large amounts of data are being replaced with new technologies and methodologies to manage the new volume, complexity, and analysis requirements. These include new ways of developing data warehousing, the

cpu coolers  appliances ship with one CPU core per 20GB of data. The Kognitio appliance accomplishes this enormous power using industry-standard commodity servers—there is no proprietary hardware involved. We package the hardware and software in a single entity, and represent a completely optimized package of software, servers, and storage. The combination of WX 2 and industry-standard servers (blade or rackmount) is purpose-built to handle analysis against terabytes of data quickly and simply. As a result, the Read More
