When I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young lad poised to spend the next four years of … Read More → "A Hands-On Guide to Designing Embedded Systems"
I was just chatting with the guys and gals at Toit, which is a rather interesting company that’s based in Denmark. These clever little scamps have come up with a whole new take on implementing the software portion of IoT devices. I will explain further in a … Read More → "It’s Time to Get Toit!"
Data center architecture must change because the applications running in data centers have changed. Several factors are forcing these architectural changes, including some key trends:
- The migration from monolithic applications running on single CPUs to distributed applications running on multiple virtual machines (VMs) using containers and microservices.
- The migration from single-owner enterprise data … Read More → "Ooh, Ooh that Smell! Can Intel’s IPUs Clean up the Cloud Data Center Mess?"
A few days ago at the time of this writing, the crème de la crème of the world’s technical press were welcomed to an invitation-only virtual event that many people would have given their eye teeth to experience — Intel’s Architecture Day 2021.
Due to some strange oversight on somebody’s part (or possibly because I have friends in low places), I was summoned to … Read More → "Will Intel’s New Architectural Advances Define the Next Decade of Computing?"
