System imbalance – in which processing power, memory capacity and data movement are in a state of disequilibrium – customarily has meant that compute power sits idle waiting for data. Imbalance continues today, but with the advent of open source tools, such as Apache Kafka and Storm enabling real-time streaming and rapid data ingest, the problem is reversed: processors ...

On Tuesday (Oct. 10), Intel delivered a 17-qubit superconducting test chip to research partner QuTech, the quantum research institute of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the Netherlands. The announcement marks a major milestone in the 10-year, $50-million collaborative relationship with TU Delft and TNO, the Dutch Organization for Applied Research, to accelerate advancements in quantum computing. Like IBM, Microsoft and Google, ... Full article
Building on collaboration announced earlier this year, SAP said this week it would incorporate Nvidia's AI platform based on the graphics processing specialist's Volta architecture into its machine-learning portfolio. The upgrade to SAP's Leonardo machine learning suite includes the addition of Nvidia's Tesla V100 GPUs. The new Nvidia DGX-1 systems will be used for AI development projects as part ... Full article
Bitcoin mining is among the latest threats to public cloud security as hackers breach enterprise computing resources to hunt for the digital currency. Cloud security vendor RedLock reported earlier this month that hackers were using Amazon Web Services (NASDAQ: AMZN) cloud computing resources to mine for bitcoins. The process involves collecting all transactions made during a set period into ... Full article
In the two decades since Sun Microsystems declared “the network is the computer,” cloud computing has established itself as the de-facto model. The economic benefits of a near infinite, elastic infrastructure that customers don’t need to manage themselves have assured that. Storing information centrally has made it possible to deliver information wherever it’s needed, to any device, supporting the ... Full article
Waves of fear and anger circulate over digital transformation projects – most of them destined to fail –sweeping the enterprise IT landscape. The technology is willing, but in too many cases the spirit of cooperation between senior managers is weak. The epicenter of digital transformation failure, according to a new study: poor CIO/CTO collaboration. Michael Gale, a partner at ... Full article
Google Cloud Platform now supports nested virtualization, a feature that allows enterprise users to run multiple virtual machines inside a Linux VM—or as Google describes it, "VMs inside of VMs." The cloud upgrade is aimed at enterprise users who want to run both legacy and cloud-native applications on hybrid IT without modifications. The company noted in a recent blog ... Full article
Cloud-native applications being delivered via application containers now have the option of using what open-source leader Red Hat calls "container-native" storage integrated with the latest version of its RedShift container platform. Red Hat released an update to its container platform this week as the latest version of its Kubernetes-based container application platform unveiled in August. That was preceded late ... Full article
While most of the enterprise computing world – users and vendors – ride CPU and GPU ponies around the data center merry-go-round, the brass ring of ultra-fast processing and lower power consumption would be to bring FPGAs into mainstream frameworks, enabling this thoroughbred racehorse of compute to handle massively parallelized hardware offloading without extensive programming agony. With a view ... Full article
For the advanced data center of the coming decade, the fight for dominance calls to mind a half dozen sumo wrestlers in the ring at the same time, each putting themselves into position for the struggle ahead. Last week saw a slew of partnerships and products from Nvidia designed to enable its GPU technologies to be more easily adopted ... Full article
As the industrial sector continues to spearhead Internet of Things deployments, investors are targeting analytics and machine learning startups focused on applications like predictive maintenance and streamlining business processes.

Public cloud vendors continue to add processing horsepower in the form of Nvidia GPU accelerators and the graphics processor vendor's Tesla datacenter GPUs. Oracle announced this week it is adding Nvidia's Tesla GPUs to its public cloud a month after cloud rival Google announced plans to add Nvidia GPUs to its public cloud. Both are attempting to differentiate their ... Full article
Public cloud vendors continue to roll out tweaks and other new features designed to differentiate their services. Among them are tools designed to give enterprise users greater control over cloud services as more applications and data are moved there. With that in mind, Google is unveiling new identity and access management (IAM) features for handling customers' public permissions on ... Full article

Life is a journey, but getting to your data shouldn’t have to be. Data is the lifeblood of most businesses, but many organizations aren’t taking full advantage of their data because it’s complex, globally distributed and hard to access. From high-resolution sensors on the edge to industrial IoT devices, the growth in unstructured data is exploding. There are more ... Full article
Advances in storage, processor, and cloud technology have made run-anywhere big data analytics available to small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) as well as Fortune 1000 companies. Run-anywhere means that only a processor and sufficient memory and storage to support a given data analytics task need be provided – and that all the historical data businesses have been collecting ...
