" Dell will stop making its own sh*te brands and no one buys and adopt EMC across the board instead."
in fact, everybody buys it. in volume, Dell is the biggest. But margin is much lower.
I think the plan is to take over EMC's customer base, make them happy with software defined storage at much lower prices. running on cheap sh**te from DELL.
High end storage is a shrinking niche, which explains why EMC has a problem, not Dell.
The margins that EMC has, are going to melt away very quickly in the next 5 years, because nobody wants to buy their sh**te again unless they have to for this or that niche purpose, you see.
"An IT director who is directing operations for infrastructure and also overseeing development and design, with detailed technical knowledge of a whole series of platforms from Microsoft to non-Microsoft? I would pay £1,000/day for someone who could do all of that,"
easy. done that, still do it. give me a ring :-)
the answer to all questions, I suppose :-)
1) surrender and learn the new
2) switch over to a linux distro with KDE.
I wonder what stops microsoft in 2015 to have only 2048.
1995: my pc had 16 mbyte
2015: my pc has 8196 mbyte.
buyer as in ignorant investor / n**b ??
That means risking to give him a fair trial and perhaps he walks because of lack of evidence.
That is precisely the reason why Osama bin Laden was "removed" instead of trialled....
solaris on x86 was pretty much very dead, by design, decisions, policy and strategy of Oracle itself.
does NOT run on sparc.
yes, one can do it. but most shops do not.
Anyway, these chips are not about volume. it is about many of sockets, hundreds of cores in a single system.
typically what you do not see in x86 based systems, and the ones that do, do not scale.
some letters here....
downloads. as of this moment
Mr author, you should at least have spent 5 minutes on Dell's website to check your facts.
your article is full of bold statements, without rationale or even basic fact checking.
you ought to be a little red in the face now. for a while to come.
better pull this article, if I were you.....
where are the linux hacks / spook code & tools ?
is it only SE linux they did ? I do not believe it.... :-)
"There is no suggestion at this stage that the certificates were used for malicious purposes."
Egypt locks up journalists for no reason, and so does china.
Think before you write???
thats what this Morozov guy is talking about. obviously, he doesnt quite get to the point like I can.
quote from that:
A study by the World Institute for Development Economics Research at United Nations University reports that the richest 1% of adults alone owned 40% of global assets in the year 2000, and that the richest 10% of adults accounted for 85% of the world total. The bottom half of the world adult population owned 1% of global wealth. Moreover, another study found that the richest 2% own more than half of global household assets.
no one wants them, no one clicks them out of fear for viruses etc.
the only non intrusive ads are printed on paper.
unsolicited email advertisement is punishable by law in some jurisdictions. (3500 euro per item ?)
unsolicited online advertisement is not punishable in the same jurisdictions.
time to unify the law and thus the experience. Apparently, we the people, do not want ads, so get rid of it......
and btw, our internet connection is being paid by us, so that is not an excuse for advertising.
that's it and that's that. lots of sales, no profit.
no cigar for this story.
that is going to loose market share fast. Dell is simply trying to commoditize storage.
Having high margins like EMC simply means EMC is ripping it's customers.
but then again, that is not really a new fact, is it ?
simple picture. that shows that the coldest places on earth were (in 2014) quite a bit more warm than normal.
upto 4 degrees.
pgp for android is not exactly yesterday's invention........
Apple/Google just wanted to get rid of authorities wanting for-free-as-in-beer assistance to catch stupid criminals.
The smart ones encrypted their stuff already by themselves with encryption of their own......
or the USA.
companies, and american companies are no exception, will do whatever they can get away with.
monsanto is a nice example: now trying to poison us all with round-up,
before that with agent orage (ask vietnam vets what that does) and before that with DDT.
so it needs regulating, if we do not want to die collectively.
same goes for zuck's little business, or google's or huawei's or <fill in your favourite>
get a life. behind bars preferably, because that is where these GCHQ gits belong.
well, maybe not.
Curious to know what this guy is smoking.....
usable for the way we are going to do application deployments.
at least, that is what I am reading here. wouldnt mind having some rationale for that :-)
no more VMware in 5 years time, then :-)
Apparently, RedHat is more and more becoming a PR machine.
Somewhere 3 years ago they already spend 4x more dollars on PR than on R&D. (SEC filling, find it yourself if you must :-) )
coffeemugs, t-shirts, talented PR people.
it works, as we can see. RedHat is becoming a kind of drop-in replacement for Solaris / HP-UX.
here is the catch.
RHEL is a drop-in replacement, yes. but not technology-wise.
RedHat's subscription business model is a drop-in replacement for the old generation of CIO's, who want to have a sales-rep to yell at and to blame when their shop goes titsup.... A billion dollar company, "how could I have known it was not good at <....> ? " is a very good blame-catcher.
It takes a lot more guts to go opensource all the way. running a very expensive proprietary database on a very expensive linux is not much different from what it has replaced........... you won't get fired for that if it goes awry.........
fortunately, the USA economy will collapse next year.
perhaps that will help. (all of europe with a seriously damaged pension perspective or none at all)
is also quite expensive.
10's of beeeelllions spent, and no result whatsoever......
if you have your own ssl provider, replace the private key with your own and you are good to go.....
like to share is welcome, including spreadsheets :-)
is also a OS, right ?
these guys gave us kvm on top of the os,
and now tell us we can live without kvm on top of the os.
Been there, done that, still doing it. without KVM.
read it carefully. she's saying IBM can't allow employees to put customer data on a service not controlled by IBM. simple compliance, and a good rule this time.
number of devices that western digital sold like live book. (44x power chips)
or the powerchips in almost every motormanagement system of many car brands
or sat receivers, wifi routets, and so on.
there's millions of those chips.....
the link to the documents is in dutch, unfortunately.
However, I can help, because I can read it.
It says simply that cloud services are yet another form of outsourcing.
The rules still apply. In no way there is any suggestion in that document that the rules are relaxed or changed to make outsourcing to a cloud provider possible.
On the contrary, the document seems to be written to make sure everyone understands that moving applications in to the cloud makes no difference to the rules and regulations in effect.
Which I think makes it pretty much obvious that you cannot move a core banking application into the cloud:
simply because the cloud providers at this moment cannot and are not interested in delivering such a service, that would comply with EU regulations. Mostly because they couldnt make money with it.....
PRISM, echelon, and the unknown ones we didnt hear about yet.
these are all government built invasions of our privacy, funded by us, to subsidize techfirms to develop chip technology and software that has no other market than governments that build $ 3 bln datacenters.
they are all in it, and we are the sheep, paying for our own demise.
these same types like that Clapper with his semantic blindspot are blackpainting company's like Huawei.
but 90% of the internet runs through Cisco gear.
Oh right, that's only foreigners private data, not from uebermenschen from the USA. I should have remembered that.
since the V is not known, we do not know the watts, so the article is meaningless.
basic physics, did you guys forget ?
I think you are glueing together "cheap/ commodity" and cloud.
it is not.
you can build a (ceph, e.g.) storage cloud in-house or out-house.
so cheap has nothing to do with cloud onsite or offsite.
if it is terabytes that go in there, you cant have it in the offsite cloud. because you cannot change cloudvendor anymore once you reach the 10's of terabytes. which effectively locks you in until network speed goes up a factor 100 the least. please note that there is not a single cloudprovider that enables you to offload your stuff from their "service".
offloading it to offsite cloud will present you with cost far beyond what you will spend onsite.
only problem is that one needs to convince storage administrators that you can build a reliable storage service based on cheap commodity technology and proper storage software like ceph and others. which are free as in speech and beer.
and a few others vmware is indeed quite big.
but the main x86 virtualisation technology when it comes to serious, commercial cloud / massive datacenters, where businesses small and large are going, is still Xen.
Look for ubuntu to fill a lot of space. they've been chosen by the chinese government...........
Look for citrix/xen to steal from vmware, as a logical next step for those who are afraid of simply going
the full opensource monty do-it-yourself to cut some cost.......
now, where s my boat....?
"The explosion of inexpensive and readily-accessible attack tools is enabling almost anybody to carry out DDoS attacks."
I dont think so. It's the hijacking of a million PC's that makes this possible.
the reason for most of us to employ virtualization is multiple workloads with a mix of charcteristics on a single box. Which causes strain on cache efficiency of the cpu, memory - cpu transfer, etc.
tpc does not reflect that situation very much... the ibm benchmark is imho thus interesting, in that it proofs you do not *have* to go for bare metal for proper performance......
however, the list price tag of vmware ( KVM being almost non-existent in enterprise use)
and to a lesser extent Xen-from-citrix, might still be a good reason to not virtualize such a tpc oltp workload...
I wonder (didnt check) what stops vendors from doing the tpc vm benchmark or cook one themselves, that properly reflects mixed workloads in a slightly realistic setting :-)
a beer is in order, I think :-)
so why so much excitement over once in a 3 months with java applets, which is risky IF you are cruising on warez and crackz sites ?
Java in the browser is almost never used anymore anyway.....
?? Surely no one turned off the IE browser because MS will fix it once more at 14th january (today) ?
my coat, plz.....
