Storage based on all-flash NVM Express arrays is gaining a foothold in enterprise datacenters even as the overall server storage market stumbles. The datacenter storage market is in the midst of a hangover following a big 2018. IHS Markit reports that global server storage revenue declined 4 percent year-on-year during the second quarter, with unit shipments dropping 10 percent. Overall, the server storage market is expected to contract by 1.5 percent in 2019. At the same time, the all-flash storage array sector rose a healthy 21 percent over the same quarter last year—despite a second-quarter revenue dip of 1.7 percent. The flash market is being driven in part by a what the analyst defines as “performance-optimized” storage arrays based on.

Real estate has long been an industry slower to adopt new technologies or be on the cutting edge of innovation. But that’s changing – this is especially true with the introduction of advanced automation, machine learning and AI into real estate and property management tools, leading to significant efficiencies to some very manual, old-school processes. Leasing, for example, has always been challenging because it involves so much communications between leasing agents and prospects, back-and-forth scheduling, time crunches and applicant screening. Everything is seemingly part of a multi-step process that drains time and resources from everyone involved. Advancements in artificial intelligence are revolutionizing leasing by eliminating tedious.

Microservices have evolved to the point where cloud-native development tools are now being referred to as Kubernetes-native—as in the de facto standard application container orchestrator. The reach of Kubernetes now extends to the Java stack used by developers pushing out cloud-native applications distributed via containers. To that end, a community led by IBM/Red Hat this week released the first production version of Quarkus, a Kubernetes-native Java stack designed to bring the programming language into the cloud-native era. The new Java framework is aimed at serverless, cloud and Kubernetes environments. “We believe Java can be better equipped to scale in the modern application development landscape, while also improving at a faster clip,
EnterpriseAI 11/07/2019 08:17, the young AI-benchmarking consortium, has issued the first round of results for its inference test suite. Among organizations with submissions were Nvidia, Intel, Alibaba, Supermicro, Google, Huawei, Dell and others. Not bad considering the inference suite (v.5) itself was just introduced in June. Perhaps predictably, GPU powerhouse Nvidia quickly claimed early victory issuing a press release coincident with the MLPerf announcement – “Nvidia today posted the fastest results on new benchmarks measuring the performance of AI inference workloads” – though without much detail. Actually, navigating the results takes some effort because of the diversity of systems (cloud to servers to mobile devices) and accelerators (GPUs, FPGA, DPS,

The proliferation of connected devices and Internet of Things sensors is boosting a transformed datacenter market in which service providers are shifting operations closer to the network edge. That trend is influencing everything from network topologies to power management systems required for backup power at remotes sites. It is also expected to nearly quadruple an emerging category dubbed the “edge datacenter” to a more than $16 billion market by 2025, according to a forecast from Global Market Insights. That works out to a 20.5 percent compound annual growth rate. The market tracker defines edge datacenters as facilities located closer to end users, delivering faster service with minimum latency. That architecture also maintains data clo.

In a showdown between hyperscale giants, Microsoft was awarded the Pentagon’s $10 billion JEDI cloud computing contract over co-finalist Amazon. Earlier this year, most observers of the closely watched competition for the 10-year deal had expected AWS to win – including companies like Oracle, which filed legal claims that the playing field was tipped in AWS’s favor. But momentum may have shifted against AWS in July when President Trump – an avowed adversary of Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, who also owns the Washington Post – and other prominent Washington political figures called for a review of the JEDI contract award process. In August, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper announced that a review would take place. “I’m getting tremendous

Researchers at Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute have come up with a new way to scan software for costly errors and vulnerabilities, and do so without access to source code. The tool is also being touted as a way to evaluate the growing number of open-source products deployed by enterprise users. The vulnerability scanner developed by Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology in Darmstadt is billed as able to detect flaws in minutes. It then provides a “generally intelligible” description for each vulnerability. The near-real time capability allows software developers and users to prioritize vulnerable code and fix the most serious problems first. Among the details delivered by the code scanner are the effect of vulnerabilities on.

IBM continues to ramp up its Watson AI offerings as adoption of automation technology remains limited, in part due to what company executives say is a lack of data integrity, trust and the skills needed to implement AI platforms. With boosting enterprise adoption in mind, IBM executives pitched a batch of Watson implementation tools built around open-source machine learning frameworks, pre-built applications or the ability to create new ones. Others would allow users to embed AI into third-party platforms. Long term, the company is betting that ease-of-use will accelerate adoption of AI technology, which according to optimistic estimates will add upwards of $16 trillion in global GDP by 2030.
