Intel’s New Xeon Chip Set to Storm the Clouds
As regards clouds in general, “storm” is not a word you would want to hear. However, by storming the clouds, I refer to the new Xeon chip’s ability to make cloud computing faster and more resilient. If you are a sports fan and familiar with the Olympics motto of “Citius (faster), Altius (higher), Fortius (stronger),” you will be interested to know that the Xeon E5 speeds up computing in the cloud, elevates it to higher energy efficiency and strengthens it through enhanced redundancy. I spoke with Cloud Computing and Data Center Industry Engagement Manager at Intel IT, Ajay Chandramouly, to understand how.

Weekly Summary

This week, First the good news: Cloud Computing is real, it’s here to stay, we’re doing a reasonably good job of defining it, and it’s already providing significant business value to countless organizations around the globe. Now the bad news: there’s still plenty of confusion over the what Cloud is and how to achieve value with it. Much of this confusion, as you might expect, comes from software and hardware vendors. After all, they’ve all had to scramble for a new Cloud value proposition once they realized that Cloud Computing would eventually doom the old way of selling their gear. For most such vendors, their Cloud strategies are works in progress. Yes, they may have a bona fide Cloud offering, but if you look more closely, the Cloud benefits you’re expecting may not yet be available. With an eye toward audit and accountability of content at the enterprise level, Egnyte announced its new Hybrid Cloud File Sharing for the Enterprise. But Egnyte promises this is not your consumer-level file sharing solution, with a new HTML5 based UI and enterprise-class architecture providing scale of up to 1 billion files, 10,000 concurrent users and upload files up to 1TB in size. Intel’s New Xeon Chip Set to Storm the Clouds. As regards clouds in general, “storm” is not a word you would want to hear. However, by storming the clouds, I refer to the new Xeon chip’s ability to make cloud computing faster and more resilient. If you are a sports fan and familiar with the Olympics motto of “Citius (faster), Altius (higher), Fortius (stronger),” you will be interested to know that the Xeon E5 speeds up computing in the cloud, elevates it to higher energy efficiency and strengthens it through enhanced redundancy. More importantly for Intel IT, this has translated into $9 million in savings and marked productivity improvements in certain processes for Intel IT. Based on the results of early testing of the Xeon E5 in Intel IT’s Silicon Design environment,  Intel IT will be able to consolidate servers by as much as 20 to 1 and has identified opportunities to reduce its overall data center count by another 35% over the next few years.

Microsoft to Launch Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh in China, Microsoft is gearing up for the release of Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh in the world’s biggest mobile phone market next week. Originally codenamed “Tango,” the Windows Phone 7 update will launch via China’s three major mobile networks. Global PC shipments are expected to pick up in the second half of the year, but Windows 8-based ultrabooks will go through a period of trial and error, market researcher IDC said.

The launch of Windows 8 on ultrabooks should drive stronger second-half PC shipment growth after a weaker first half. Windows 8 will support Retina-class displays. Apple won’t be the only tablet maker boasting eye-popping display resolutions, if Windows 8 tablet suppliers follow Microsoft’s lead. If manufacturers follow suit, Windows 8 tablets and hybrids will sport displays that rival, or exceed, the Retina Display on Apple’s newest iPad. Many Windows 8 tablet PCs will have pixel densities of at least 135 DPI. Washington noted the introduction of “HD tablets” with 1,920×1,080-pixel resolution on an 11.6-inch screen, packing a pixel density of 190 DPI, and “quad-XGA tablets” with 2,560×1,440 pixels on an 11.6-inch screen. The latter has a pixel density of 253 DPI.

 

A new Office Web Apps Server is part of the next version of Microsoft’s coming Office 15 productivity suite. Microsoft will be making some under-the-hood changes to how its Office Web Apps — the Webified versions of Microsoft’s Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote — work with the coming “Wave 15″ productivity apps. Connect Your Channels With Mobile, As an organization you have many different channels to deal with: web, social, mobile web, your store, call centers and search. Mobile has the ability to greatly affect all these channels because it is everywhere and will continue to be so for a long, long time. HP Ready to Compete with Amazon on the Cloud, Amazon may well have a new rival on its cloud computing services because Hewlett-Packard announced recently that they will be moving towards that same direction soon. Senior vice president and general manager of HP’s cloud services, Zorawar “Biri” Singh said that NYSE: HPQ plans to market a more business friendly with more service features on the cloud computing solutions. Another development took place as HP finally sealed the deal with ProLiant Gen8. It will boost HP’s cloud hosting services at the most reasonable cost. The server’s hype is its “self-sufficient” feature that would allow virtual machines to function on its own while it controls and monitors about 1,600 other system parameters and deal with technical problems on real-time. The servers were coined as “Project Voyager” during its development stage where about US$300 million was spent to complete. HP boasts that it will redefine how data economics function as they become automated. HP is seriously laying the foundation of their cloud platform to contend with other cloud giants. Cloud has really evolved and changed the way computing is done and continues to advance over time.
