It Takes More Than a Fast CPU to Rule the Web


Compaq Computer Corporation, desperate to get some kind of high-end UNIX benefit from its ill-conceived acquisition of Digital Equipment Corp., has announced its massive, 32-CPU capable GS series of Alpha systems. But, as was the case with Digital, Compaq marketing seems overly concerned with CPU - not system - performance.

Targeting dot-coms as well as customers in telecommunications, high-performance technical computing, healthcare and financial services, the new AlphaServers are optimized to Read More

AMD Earnings Beat the Street! Intel Earnings Beat the Street?


Both Intel and AMD announced earnings that handily beat Wall Street estimates – on the surface. Do the numbers symbolize a new trend in the CPU market?

cpu socket  two, everyone thought the CPU wars were over, with Intel the victor. Cyrix was just about dead, and AMD looked like all it could do was deliver lower-priced Intel-like processors. Although AMD's revenues are still only a fraction of Intel's ($1.1B vs. $8B for the quarter), their growth rate is currently greater than Intel's. Intel and AMD have also been going through rounds of aggressive price cuts, with the end-users reaping the benefits. Even with the price cuts on the Athlon CPU et al., AMD is Read More

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

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

Antivirus Software: Market Review


Computer viruses are spreading through the Internet at an unprecedented rate and the antivirus market is now a $3 billion (USD) a year industry. This report measures the financial health and product quality of four key industry players: Symantec, McAfee, Computer Associates, and Trend Micro.

We chose to perform this test because in the past we have heard users complain that various antivirus products are so CPU intensive during a full system scan that they are unable to use their PCs until the scan is complete. For this test, we installed each product (one at a time) onto a 1 GHz Pentium III with 256 MB of RAM. The Read More

Although Intel has the lead in mindshare for the 64-bit market (excluding the Unix/Solaris/etc. markets), vulnerabilities have been appearing in recent months. AMD's design capabilities have improved (witness Athlon performance), so Intel domination is no longer a slam dunk . Compaq's Alpha chip gets a little more life, although we believe this is just delaying its likely demise. Alpha can still be saved from the great technology no longer produced heap, but it Read More

IBM's Four-CPU Wintel-Based Rack Servers High Performance, High Cost

Vendor Recommendations 5500 M20: The 5500 M20 is a fairly standard, middle-of-the-road system, with the exception of its unusual size. IBM should consider reducing the system chassis to 7U. Since it takes a year or so to redesign a chassis, IBM should play up the performance aspects of the 5500 (in the meantime), an area where Read More

Red Hat Plays 'Love You, Love You Not' with CPUs


Red Hat has announced the release of Alpha Deluxe, its version of Linux for computers based on Compaq’s Alpha CPU. At the same time, the company announced it would drop support for Sun’s Sparc processor.

We understand that benchmarks are only an indicator of performance - but how will customers know how great your systems are if the only benchmarks to which they can refer have little, if anything, to do with their intended application. In effect, there is minimal Alpha presence on the desktop. That leaves the low-end server market as the means to improve volumes and thus lower system cost. That implies a natural Read More

Compaq's Alpha - Moving Toward Its Omega?


Compaq's powerful Alpha processor is reaching a crucial juncture - will Compaq expend the effort necessary for it to challenge Intel's dominance, or is it destined to become another Betamax (great technology with no market)?

In addition to the higher performance of the chip itself, Alpha is based on a 64-bit architecture, providing (according to Digital/Compaq) far superior performance to the 16-bit and 32-bit architectures in use by the Intel x86 architectures. The other strength is Alpha's ability to run multiple OSes: Windows NT, Unix (Compaq's Tru64 Unix ), Linux, and VMS. Although Alpha-based products exist in multiple market spaces, their greatest success so far has Read More

Oracle Extends Oracle EBS with Endeca


Oracle paid a hefty price for Endeca Technologies in late 2011, but in addition to the product’s standalone sales, the up- and cross-sales opportunities in Oracle’s install base that can still come from Endeca’s big data capabilities seem immense. Thus far, Oracle’s retail and customer service solutions have benefited from Endeca’s information discovery capabilities. Most recently, to help
