Supermicro has deployed an additional cluster at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) to augment existing computing capabilities available for national security and to help discover therapeutics for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
IT spending in EMEA is forecast to total $1.075 trillion in 2021, an increase of 2.8% from 2020, according to the latest forecast by Gartner, Inc. IT spending in the region is expected to decline 6.5% in 2020.
Supermicro Computer's 2U Ultra-E short-depth is the latest update to Supermicro’s growing NEBS (Network Equipment Building System) Level 3-certified server line-up. Its deployment and operation in telecom and other edge applications confirm that industry-standard and open server computational power can be found outside of traditional data centres.
Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. has launched three collaborative research projects with world-leading research institutions: one with RIKEN and the University of Tokyo, another with Osaka University, and the other with the Delft University of Technology, in the Netherlands (hereafter, TU Delft). To make practical quantum computing a reality, Fujitsu will conduct research on a number of the associated technology layers, from the device level to control systems, architecture and algorithms. Through this collaborative research, Fujitsu aims to achieve comprehensive and efficient advances in quantum computing. By applying quantum computing to various fields currently facing problems that are extremely difficult to solve, Fujitsu aims to provide even greater value to customers and contribute to a sustainable society going forward.
Super Micro has announced the doubling of GPU capabilities with a new 4U server supporting eight NVIDIA® HGX A100™ GPUs. Supermicro offers the industry's broadest portfolio of GPU systems spanning 1U, 2U, 4U, and 10U GPU servers and SuperBlade servers over a wide range of customisable configurations.
Wes Van Den Berg, Vice President and General Manager, UK&I, Pure Storage, provides an update on recent developments at the company, including the launch of the FlashBlade//S family of products and the introduction of the Evergreen//Flex.
The opening of Telehouse South at its London Docklands campus might represent something of a change for Telehouse, as it represents an ‘ambitious and aesthetic’ refurbishment of an existing data centre, as opposed to a new build, but it continues the company’s focus of providing high level colocation facilities, where latency, cloud, connectivity and sustainability all have key roles to play. Mark Pestridge, Senior Customer Experience Director, Telehouse Europe, explains all.
Charles Hunsucker, General Manager Americas and Data Centers at Kohler Uninterruptible Power, explains how its entire range of mission critical diesel generators is now compatible with Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) – the latest development in the company’s sustainability focus.
Richelle Ahlvers, Chair of the SNIA Storage Management Initiative, discusses what’s new with Swordfish, the storage management standard, including the latest developments on work with industry partner organisations and the new Conformance Testing Program, as well as talking through the newly opened SNIA Storage Management Initiative’s Next-Gen Lab.
Dr Nando de Freitas, a lead researcher at Google’s DeepMind, recently grabbed tech headlines with his claim that humanity is closer than ever to creating artificial general intelligence. Although hotly contested by many in the sector, this type of technology would have a profound impact on the business community, its operations and how it approaches customer interactions. Instead of training algorithms on existing data sets, super AI might be able to listen, read emotion and extract information in a way that mimics human understanding.
