Data Center And Enterprise Reviews And News

Data Centers for mission critical applications and cloud services require high-end, fault-tolerant hardware and software for servers, processors, storage, operating systems and more. Meanwhile, enterprise and small business road warriors alike need that same level of reliability on mobile devices and back at the office as well. If it connects people and systems, stores critical data or provides digital tools for business and professionals, you'll find our coverage here - from WiFi routers to Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices, High Performance Computing (HPC) and more, this channel means business.

It's hard to remember now, but the original AMD Ryzen processors topped out at "just" 8 cores. The Ryzen 3000 family came along in 2019 with the Ryzen 9 branding and the first sixteen-core desktop CPUs. Even in the enterprise market, 16 CPU cores can be overkill. However, you can't just go buying consumer PC hardware... Read more...
Some people have claimed that AI is a fad, or a flash in the pan. It's easy to understand the perspective; the hype around the explosion of generative AI feels similar to the hype around previous fads, like 3D TVs or the metaverse. AI isn't a fad, though. It is already transforming every single part of the tech... Read more...
Most forms of malware can only make the attacker money in a roundabout way. For example, selling stolen data or bundling infected systems into a rentable botnet. Ransomware is different, however, in that it can be a moneymaker all on its own, and that's why infections have increased every year. IBM has debuted a new... Read more...
Artificial intelligence (AI) has taken off in the last few years. Buoyed by massive increases in computational power, the latest large language models (LLMs) can behave in remarkably lifelike ways, but their inner workings are not always clear. What if those inner workings turn on us? That's certainly a worry, based... Read more...
Microsoft has just set new performance targets for PCs to be considered AI-ready. The trillion-dollar software, services and devices company has specified 40 TOPS (Trillions Of Operations Per Second) in AI computational throughput and 16GB of memory at a minimum, for a system to potentially have all AI features...

Once upon a time, AMD's Opteron processors allowed it to make significant inroads into the server market. The compnay lost ground in the Bulldozer years, though, and with EPYC, AMD had to prove that it could reliably deliver competitive processors on time. We're now into the fourth generation of EPYC processors, and... Read more...
The data center is the unsung hero of modern computing, in that so many tasks rely on them (cloud gaming, online shopping, and so forth) but they often take a back seat to local devices. Back seat or not, it's important to keep data centers fed with high-tech hardware, and that's what Kioxia is delivering with its... Read more...
The generative AI genie is out of the bottle and not going back any time soon. These developments are transforming the ways companies do business, but those who choose to implement it are faced with significant decisions to be made. For example, employees may inadvertently leak trade secrets to cloud-hosted AI models... Read more...
Modern scientific breakthroughs aren't solely relegated to a lab these days, but also come by way of the massive compute resources that modern data centers full of servers can muster. For researchers, maintaining open access to these invaluable complexes has been vital. The Stampede and Stampede2 supercomputer... Read more...
