It's being called a worse threat than Heartbleed, but unlike Heartbleed, "Shellshock" can affect home users just as well as servers. The bug is tied to the Bash Unix shell, one that's pretty much de facto in Linux, and can be found in all Mac OS X releases. While you'll be in a Bash environment whenever you open up a...

Applied Micro is betting big on microserver use in the HPC market, and to help things along, it's just begun shipping its new X-Gene processors, based on ARM's v8 64-bit architecture. In late June, the firm revealed a number of partners that would be shipping servers with its X-Gene chip inside, and one similarity... Read more...
The DDR4 future looms increasingly large, as Crucial announced that it’s now sampling DDR4 server memory to channel partners who are working on platforms to support the latest generation of RAM. "Memory is one of the biggest limitations when it comes to enterprise server environments,” said Michael Moreland, worldwide product marketing... Read more...
If you came here looking for something smooth and easy to digest, you may want to have a peek at a post above or below. All kidding aside, NEC's latest contribution to the enterprise realm is a real hum-dinger, digging deep into networking and efficiencies that all but the most hardened of IT administrators would...

Microsoft is known for being a lot of things, but "open" is something that's found at the bottom of most hypothetical lists. However, the company has been willing to make some exceptions to that rule when either internal or both internal and external benefits can be seen, and we're seeing a new example of that with...

Today, AMD is launching a pair of power-optimized server parts based on what it calls the "Warsaw" refresh. These chips are still Piledriver-based, but AMD claims that the new core offers an optimal performance per watt solution for virtualization without breaking the corporate bank account. "With the continued move... Read more...
Never underestimate the passion of a programmer and true geek at heart. That's the lesson to take away from today's story of little Julia, a 12-year-old girl who plays on her school's basketball and volleyball teams, is into swimming, and who recently spent an hour learning the fundamentals of CUDA programming at the...

The years haven't been kind to brick-and-mortar generalist stores. Kmart, Sears, Roses -- just a few of the names that were booming a decade ago, and now, can't seem to lure a customer in regardless of tactic. Rather than just throwing in the towel and cursing Amazon, Sears is thinking outside of the box a bit. A new... Read more...
AMD is banking big on a heterogeneous server future, one where CPUs and GPUs work in unison to offer unparalleled performance. And speaking of parallels, that's just where AMD thinks its APUs can shine. It should come as a surprise to no one at this point that if a process can take advantage of a highly parallel...

Microservers may not be for everyone, but when computing requirements are low, such as with a cloud server, they could be perfect. Such proof of that comes from Verizon today, which has just announced its plans to adopt thousands of microservers to back its 'Verizon Cloud' network. Perhaps better still, the purchases are going to AMD, which... Read more...
Anyone who has tried to host their own website from home likely knows all-too-well the hassles that ISPs can cause. Simply put, ISPs generally don't want you to do that, preferring you to move up to a business package (aka: more expensive). Not surprisingly, the EFF doesn't like these rules, which seem to exist only to upsell you a product,... Read more...
Two of the world's largest enterprise companies may be about to shake hands in a deal that'll have massive implications across the entire cloud (er, industry). A new report suggests that Microsoft and Oracle are ready to "link their fortunes in the cloud," announcing at its upcoming BUILD conference a new partnership... Read more...
Wondering what AMD's plans are in terms of server strategy? Don't bother looking up leaks; the chip-maker is laying it all out in front of you. In what has to be one of the most unusual moves in recent memory, AMD is bucking the trend of all-out secrecy by disclosing today its server roadmap. Why? It's mostly aimed at... Read more...
DDoSing a Web server has become the de facto way to exact revenge on someone, or some company. Not a week, or sometimes even a day, will go by when you can't read about some ongoing DDoS attack. We've seen them spawned by Internet goofs to professional criminals. DDoSing is easy, and it's effective. That's why it's so heavily-used.... Read more...
If you've had a difficult time connecting to select websites over the past few days, there's a very good chance that an on-going attack against spam-prevention agency Spamhaus is to blame. Spamhaus, based in London and Geneva, helps e-mail providers filter spam, and to do this, it manages a blocklist that includes any... Read more...
Oracle is launching a new set of SPARC processors it hopes will staunch its market share losses, even as revenue continues to slip. The new T5 chips are built on a 2nm process and refine the T4 core that Oracle debuted two years ago. Like the T4, the T5 emphasized improving single-thread performance and clock speeds...

It's no secret that Intel is planning to get into the television and entertainment business in some way, but now it appears that the company is getting looser about introducing things pertaining to those goals. At the TV Connect 2013 event in London, Intel has launched a new reference design for Media Processors. The MSRD is both a hardware... Read more...
It goes without saying that where durability, stability and endurance are concerned, few organizations care quite as much about the products they deploy than the military. The term "Military-Grade" exists for a reason, after all. Rugged laptops are common there - they need to withstand dirt and an occasional bump -... Read more...
Over the course of the past few years, you might have noticed that component vendors have been working hard to shed some old technology that's been keeping us from progress. We've seen EFI replace the typical BIOS, for example, and GPT become more prevalent to allow us to use hard drives greater than 2.2TB... Read more...
Nearly two years ago, Facebook launched the Open Compute Project. The initiative was intended to rethink all aspects of data server design, including cooling, racks, and server configuration. The coalition has gathered steam and support from a number of companies; AMD announced its own Open 3.0 Platform at today's OCP... Read more...
Looking for something small and useful out of CES? How about this? Kanex has just introduced the meDrive, a file server for iOS products that can be used to expand storage and provide a secure local cloud. It essentially turns USB storage into a network drive, which can then be accessed from an iPad, iPhone, iPod... Read more...
AMD and ARM are leveraging the former’s acquisition of SeaMicro to develop ARM-based servers, and now there’s a concerted effort to develop a software ecosystem for the platform, driven a slew of industry leaders. Companies including AMD, AppliedMicro, Calxeda, Canonical, Cavium, Facebook, HP, Marvell and... Read more...
