Flaw in Intel Xeon 550 Chips: Shipments Stopped
Intel halted shipments of 550MHz Xeon processors to OEMs after flaw discovered.

cpu motherboard  damper on the overall eight-CPU Intel server market, because vendors will be unable to ship systems, and some customers will delay purchases until they see that the problem has been fully resolved. This puts Dell Computer and Hewlett-Packard at a disadvantage, since they use the Saber board set as the core of their servers. Compaq Computer will have both a short-term advantage and potential disadvantage. The disadvantage arises from the possibility of the marketplace not differentiating between the

Cooler-running Notebooks from HP, Toshiba, et al.


Recent announcements from AMD, Toshiba, and Phoenix highlight an increasing focus on extending the battery life of notebook computers.

Early testing indicated battery life extension of around 18% when running one set of tests. Market Impact Although Intel currently controls the corporate notebook market, AMD is winning in the retail space. This will help it gain a larger foothold in Corporate America. In addition to the product wins for AMD, the PowerNow! technology is another example of AMD taking the fight to Intel. Intel announced Read More

IBM Continues RS/6000 Performance Focus


IBM has just released benchmark results for its mid-range Unix server, the RS/6000 M80, showing it to be a top performer in transaction processing and Web serving.

How Do You Categorize Servers?


The term 'PC Server' encompasses a wide range of computing hardware features and functionality. So, how can the entire range be subdivided into more manageable groups? This note discusses one way of separating them, and the functional characteristics associated with each group.

In other words, on which areas (e.g., processing power, reliability, price) can we expect each of the segments to focus? The features and functions that matter in Read More

What’s Up with Computer Associates?


In a series of radical moves, Computer Associates appears to be trying to re-direct its gargantuan operations. After missing its numbers in the first calendar quarter (CA’s 4th fiscal quarter), its stock was down 59% at one point.

Leverage can also be applied by attempting to close the contract close to the end of a quarter or CA fiscal year, when the sales representative is desperate to make his quota and be invited to the annual President's Club extravaganza.

Intel Faces 820 Chipset Problems (Again)


In the latest round of setbacks to beset Intel’s performance-oriented 820 chipset, the manufacturer announces a recall of nearly a million motherboards shipped in 1999 & 2000.

McNulty - June 1, 2000 Event Summary SANTA CLARA, Calif. - May 10, 2000 - Intel Corporation [NASDAQ:INTC] announced that it would replace motherboards that have a defective memory translator hub (MTH) component that translates signals from SDRAM memory to the Intel 820 chipset. The MTH is only used with motherboards utilizing SDRAM and the Intel 820 chipset. The MTH began shipping in November 1999; therefore systems Read More

Server Appliances - "Caching" In on Internet's Growth


"Server Appliances" are a relatively new, fast-growing segment within the Server market. These systems are designed to perform one or two functions very well, without the overhead of a general-purpose server.

Network Appliance: NAS leadership: Network Appliance is the current leader in the Network Attached Storage market, holding a greater than 40% share. (NetApp is also a key player in the caching market, holding a market share of approximately 28%.) File serving: The NetFiler product can run attached to mixed (Unix and Windows NT) server networks.

Compaq's High-End Wintel-based Rack Servers - Working Hard to Stay #1


Compaq Computer Corporation, the #1 volume manufacturer of PC Servers, both US and worldwide, is fighting a strong challenge by Dell Computer. This note assess the strengths and weaknesses of its four-CPU rackmount servers.

cpu motherboard  who want lots of CPU power in a small box, will find the 6400R a good choice. The 5500R is better suited to high-performance and general-purpose computing, and for customers who want excellent price/performance. Because the 5500R has only five I/O slots available, the customer should consider using this point as a bargaining tool when considering HP as the alternate vendor. If the user absolutely needs more than five I/O slots, the 5500R becomes much less desirable - and a point customers should consider Read More

“It’s a Notebook!” “It’s a Paperweight!” “Wait - It’s Both!”


Some Toshiba notebook buyers got a nasty surprise when they found their Intel CPU had died. Will Toshiba switch from “Intel Inside” to “AMD Instead”?

cpu motherboard  Inc. began complaining about CPU failures. The trouble was initially reported to Toshiba by owners of its Satellite 4100-series and Tecra 8000-series laptops featuring the 400MHz chips. In the last two weeks, Toshiba and Intel engineers narrowed the problem down to a circuit board, known as Mobile Module One, on which the CPUs were affixed, according to Intel spokesman Manny Vara in Santa Clara, Calif. Intel has several types of mobile modules, Vara said. Basically, there's something called over-voltage Read More

ION Middleware-Infor’s Fastest Growth Engine


Infor, a provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers in over 190 countries, recently announced strong momentum for Infor ION technology. More than 900 organizations in 59 countries have reportedly purchased ION, making it the top-selling and fastest-growing product in Infor’s portfolio of industry-specialized software products.

The main goal was to shore up the install base, not to be a middleware vendor per se. Given that Infor customers are paying for ION licenses, they may see additional value, whereas Infor gets a new license revenue stream. I look forward to the Inforum 2013 user Read More

My Network Engineers are Talking about Implementing Split DNS. What Does that Mean?


You have heard that something called split DNS can speed up websites. What does this mean and how does it work?

Since the goal is to make your customers experience a fast website, don't setup your internal DNS server to be a slave of your external DNS server. Instead, use an altogether different server on your internal network for a secondary DNS slave. Set up your secondary DNS slave (not shown on the above diagram) to resolve outbound queries to other domains, and your internal DNS primary to resolve queries for your own local corporate domain. In this configuration, your Read More

Dell Updates Its Appliance Line


As part of a far-reaching strategy to grab a large share of Internet infrastructure computing, Dell has announced three new appliance server models.

cpu motherboard  Dell believes that a single-CPU system is sufficiently powerful to drive xSP-type applications, with the bottleneck being the network. IBM believes that for heavy-duty Web applications, dual-CPU systems provide a more robust and powerful infrastructure. We advise customers to test these contentions for themselves before committing large amounts of money to revamping (or building up) their infrastructure. For example, back-end loaded (e.g., calculation/processing-intense) sites might benefit more from a Read More

Standard Benchmark on Hewlett-Packard ProLiant Servers


In August 2006, Microsoft conducted a Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 standard distribution benchmark to measure the performance and scalability characteristics of the application in a simulated distribution scenario. This benchmark exercised core accounts receivables scenarios around order entry through invoicing, in addition to procure-to-pay processes around purchase order creation through receiving of goods. We look at the methodology and results.

Embedded Linux for Handhelds


A spate of recent announcements from Lineo, Inc., Red Hat, and others concern the development of "embedded Linux", initially for x86-based and PowerPC-based CPUs.

cpu motherboard  In addition to the CPU issues, the PDA market is pretty much owned by the Palm OS (approximately 80% share), so boasting of Windows CE compatibility is of little value for PDAs. The appliance market is fairly new, however, and presently is one of the areas where Microsoft will try to gain some market share for CE. Providing a WinCE-like Linux solution should help Linux pick up at least part of the ready-made CE market. In addition, Win CE application compatibility should buy the FOL (Friends Of Linux) Read More
