Microsoft releases new containerised cut of Windows Server

Oneman2Many

It will have the same footprint as Windows, so now we will have your app running on windows on a container platform which itself will be running on a hypervisor. Really makes sense ?

There is zero chance that the app will take advantage of vertical or horizontal scale, will probably use local storage, be connected to by some SMB or other non-scaleable protocol, etc

The only reason you would want to do this is so that you can ticket the box to say your application is running in a container.

HPE CEO pledges $4bn Edge R&D splurge

Oneman2Many

Yes and no, having seen what happens in large cooperates you have a pool of talent that thinks a certain way and can no longer innovate. In that instance your best bet maybe to layoff the dinosaurs and start again, preferable by moving location and keeping them at arms length and staff them with new employees who don't get encumbered with existing culture. Best thing would be to not even brand it as HPE.

The problem with most company purchases that are made for innovation reasons is that the bigger organisation tries to impose their outdated policies instead of leaving the smaller more nimble company as they are.

Audi chief exec arrested over Dieselgate car emissions scandal

Re: funny

I am going to guess that isn't true else VW wouldn't have emissions figures that were so far ahead of the other manufactures.

Now if you are talking fuel consumption figures that is a different matter.

Re: What about endurance?

Unless you are using it for data centre levels of writes then a non-issue these days. Techreport tested a Samsung 250GB 840 TLC drive and managed it managed 900 TB of writes before dying. In case you are wondering that would be almost 10 years of writing at 250GB per day.

Of course the drive could die on the first day so I am sure you are keeping backups right ?

Real world barriers get damages, road markings wear out, road signs get covered in gunk, etc. The system should be able to cope with that

G Suite admins need to RTFM – thousands expose internal emails

You have to create or set permissions for your group as Team which is the default, and tick the box that says "Also allow anyone on the internet to post messages". Not really sure what extra training needs to be done to highlight that you are exposing your group to public internet ?

It's true – it really is grim up north, thanks to Virgin Media. ISP fined for Carlisle cable chaos

Oneman2Many

"You wouldn't blame Ford or BMW if a mechanic did a piss poor job of replacing your breaks would you?"

Actually is a good analogy because BMW is exactly who would be blaming if the dealership contracted by BMW did the work. BMW trained the mechanic to their spec and certified them to work on their behalf.

I would say the VM should pass on the fine to the contractors but they most likely can't because VM's own inspectors probably signed off the work. So the blame here is fair and square with VM.

Virtual desktops won’t save cash in clouds or on-prem. So why care?

Oneman2Many

Re: Dead in water

We have around 1,000 VDI session mainly for off site developers who remote in and work on a corporate standard desktop and access internal systems remotely.

We also have a bunch of instances where we need the client next to the server due to crap design. We are looking at HRG-VDI for our engineering teams but can't find suitable hardware configuration for mass deployment at the moment. Ideally we would like composable GPU so we can switch load from VDI to visualisation or ML when developers go home.

Re: Agree

Microsoft Office and I assume all their other products are licensed for VDI with software assurance licenses. Windows VDI with VMWare for Xenserver both work fine. I've worked with hundreds of vendors and yet to come across one that doesn't have a license model for VDI based on device or concurrent licenses.

You can move to another platform but none have enough momentum at the moment to persuade the 100+ people I have on whatapp that they need to change as well.

Seen the footage and the car should 100% have detected the cyclist and at least braked based on the information that uber had published that they had lidar and radar as well as optical camera in addition Volvo's own radar based collision avoidance system was supposed to be active.

Tech giants at war: Google pulls plug on YouTube in Amazon kit

Oneman2Many

I really don't understand how people are comparing YT to netflix and amazon prime. Pretty much two completely different things. The clue is in the name, YT is mainly about user generated content, not the mostly dross produced by film and TV studios.

Its also worlds biggest jukebox, something that netflix doesn't even do and amazon prime barely scratches the surface with. Spotify is around 30m tracks, SoundCloud has around 120m of user uploaded tracks, YouTube is over 250m, of course a lot of crap quality stuff on there but also a lot of stuff you just can't find anywhere else. How often have you come across a track that you can't find on there ?

Gulp. HPE's InfoSight self-repairs and makes 'proactive decisions'

not a troll, we've tried their kit and they don't have any must have features. Maybe infosight is it but past records says it will have some stupid 'feature' which makes it useless in real life like much of HPE inventions.

Computing in schools improved, but still needs major patching – report

Oneman2Many

Re: School is useless

I think that learning apps actually is of more use to a larger percentage of kids if they are allocated a very limited time each week. If they are interested in IT that can be studied later or as an additional subject. Most schools run coding clubs were they learn about IT rather than apps.

Card shark Intel bets with discrete graphics chips, shuffles AMD's GPU boss into the deck

Oneman2Many

Re: Well then...

Games is a small segment of the GPU industry, even nVidia will tell you that. The real money is in ML, AI and XR. Just an example there are going to be millions of cars driving around in the next 10 years that will have more compute power then your home PC.

Volta pro range costs 10x the price of a consumer graphics card yet probably doesn't cost much more to manufacture. Server farms aren't just buying one or two of them but thousands you can understand why gaming just happens to be a byproduct rather than a target.

Tesla share crash amid Republican bid to kill off electric car tax break

Oneman2Many

That is the case with most of these 'subsides'. Solar panels is another case, you need to be able to invest in panels in the first place which means the people who receive the subside would have done without it in the first place.

In both case of electric cars, the argument could be that it helps kick start infrastructure changes that will be required before a mass rollout.

Bored 'drivers' pushed Google Waymo into ditching autopilot tech

Oneman2Many

That is fine, you know when you are going to get to the end of the main road or slip road and have plenty of warning.

Personally I won't give over steering control at any point and do away with level 3 all together. Driver assist like adaptive cruise is fine. But what will car manufactures push for the next 5 to 10 years till level 4 is ready ?

Waymo, Ford and government studies showed this months ago. Ford at least are saying they are going skip Level 3 because of this issue and going straight to level 4. Tesla, the germans and other are still talking about releasing level 3 cars,

https://cleantechnica.com/2017/02/20/ford-skip-level-3-autonomous-cars-even-engineers-supervising-self-driving-vehicle-testing-lose-situational-awareness/

My guess is a few crashes and level 3 will be banned or restricted to motorways or other main roads.

Dell forgot to renew PC data recovery domain, so a squatter bought it

Re: How do domain names expire?

Obviously never worked for a mega-corp. The 'official' process where the names are monitored are usually a PITA to use so a lot of names are registered at department level using company credit card. Then the person leaves or the card expires and the names which by then have become critical expire. Happens all the time.
