Retailers who have embraced digital disruption and transformed their businesses know two hard truths: consumer expectations can rise quickly; and no seller is safe. Thanks to the “Amazon Effect,” consumers now believe that benefits like expedited, on-demand deliveries are the baseline for any online retailer. Consumers want more product choices, at a lower cost, delivered faster, with full transparency, ... Full article

Call it a corollary to Murphy’s Law: When a system is most in demand, when end users are most dependent on the system performing as required, when it’s crunch time – that’s when the system is most likely to blow up. Or make you wait in line to use it. They know this at Mellanox as well as anyone. ... Full article
A new project launched this week by the Linux Foundation is designed to provide standard tools for complying with the terms of open-source code licenses. The goal of the Automated Compliance Tooling (ACT) initiative is “to consolidate investment in, and increase interoperability and usability of, open source compliance tooling, which helps organizations manage compliance obligations,” the foundation said Thursday ...

2018 has been a rough one for Intel, abuse has been heaped on the company for its dilatory delivery of a 10nm process technology – first slated for 2016, now for late 2019. This writer and fellow “knights of the keyboard” (as baseball immortal Ted Williams referred to the press), along with Wall Street analysts, have drilled “Chipzilla” for ... Full article
Networking vendors are steadily adding new services to the emerging Istio service mesh used to link Kubernetes-based application components. That latest approach called a “universal service mesh” seeks to move beyond containers to include monolithic applications running on virtual machines and bare metal as well as micro-services infrastructure. Avi Networks this week unveiled new “gateway services” to the Istio ... Full article
A security flaw discovered in the de facto standard Kubernetes cloud container orchestrator allowed unauthorized users access to Kubernetes clusters and the data they contain. The “privilege escalation vulnerability” announced Monday (Dec. 3) by developers affects versions 1.0 and higher of the Kubernetes orchestrator along with Red Hat OpenShift container platform. Red Hat rated the vulnerability as “critical,” denoting ... Full article
AI may be on the cusp of combatting two menaces of American life: mass shootings and terrorism. Two start-ups have technologies under development designed to spot the bad guys, and bad cargo, before they can cause harm. Liberty Defense Technologies is combining radio frequency scanning with real time image processing to detect a gun, or guns, carried near a ... Full article
Docker is expanding its collaboration with Microsoft to include an “application bundle” specification for packaging and running cloud-native applications. The collaboration coincides with the application container specialist’s release of a “desktop” for speeding deployment of distributed apps in production. The new Cloud Native Application Bundle (CNAB) spec seeks to unify management of distributed applications using different tools running on-premise ... Full article
Pundits trumpet AI as the future for U.S. employment, but new research indicates AI's prevalence on the job is already here. How do we know? Because workers told us. Data based on a survey of U.S. workers in June indicates more than 32 percent are already exposed to some form of AI in their jobs. And not surprisingly this ... Full article
Better security and more speed – what else could we ask of serverless computing? At re:Invent this week, AWS launched a new take on virtual machines with a virtualization technology and open source project (under the Apache 2.0 license) for running multi-tenant container workloads. Called Firecracker, the offering is designed to combine the speed, resource efficiency and performance enabled ... Full article
Add high-performance computing to the ever-growing list of enterprise (fill-in-the-blank) as-a-service offerings. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) and HPC partner Advania Data Centers (ADC) have put their own spin on HPC-as-a-service with a hybrid approach that underpins an HPC cloud platform. The goal of the new HPC is “hybrid delivery to HPC users,” the partners said. The combination would ... Full article
Amid the gush of money and enthusiastic predictions being thrown at quantum computing comes a proposed cold shower in the form of an essay by physicist Mikhail Dyakonov published in IEEE Spectrum this month – "The Case Against Quantum Computing." Whatever your view of QC’s prospects, Dyakonov’s commentary is worth a read. Error correction – or more accurately the ... Full article
IBM and log data management startup LogDNA are collaborating on a new cloud service designed to help developers spot faults and debug code in data stored in the IBM cloud. Among the goals is reducing downtime and the resulting revenue loss. The partners said Thursday (Nov. 29) the collaboration would combine IBM’s (NYSE: IBM) log analysis tool with LogDNA features ...

Is BeeGFS – the parallel file system with European roots – on a path to compete with Lustre and Spectrum Scale worldwide? Frank Herold’s unsurprising answer is yes. Herold is CEO of ThinkParQ, the company created in 2014 to commercialize BeeGFS. You may remember that BeeGFS got its start as an in-house project (2005) at the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITWM) and ... Full article

It is the best of times for networking equipment vendors, but it may be the worst of times for data-driven enterprises if they can’t figure out how to unclog network connections quickly backing up with unstructured data generated by devices, sensors and insatiable consumer demand for video and other emerging web applications. The estimates for future network traffic are ... Full article
AWS, a macrocosm of the emerging high-performance technology landscape, wants to be everywhere you want to be and offer everything you want to use (or at least try out).
