Richard Platt's insight:
The server market is currently dominated by the x86 processors, which account for well over 80% of total server shipments. When combined with a GPU, the x86 processors can do more work per watt than a standalone x86 processor. ARM processors can help cut down on power consumption as they are known for their low power processors, an important criteria given the size and energy demands of most HPC (High Performance Computing) systems. AMD believes that ARM CPUs have the potential to account for 20% of the server market by 2016 or 2017

Death of Moore’s Law?: EUV rollout slowed, 450mm wafers halted, and an uncertain path beyond 14nm

Death of Moore’s Law?: EUV rollout slowed, 450mm wafers halted, and an uncertain path beyond 14nm | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
There have been a number of events over the past few weeks that collectively point to serious problems ahead for the semiconductor market and all the players in that space. The entire economic structure that was supposed to support both Intel and the major foundries as they moved to next-generation manufacturing technologies, such as 450mm wafers, extreme ultraviolet lithography, and 20nm CMOS, is on the verge of coming apart.
Richard Platt's insight:

If per transistor costs rise, suddenly higher transistor counts become a liability. It’s still possible to pack more transistors per square mm, but that mindset becomes a financial liability — every increase in density increases costs instead of reducing them.

Researcher finds over 300,000 servers still Heartbleed-vulnerable | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
Back in April, discoveries made headlines over a vulnerability in OpenSSL known as Heartbleed. The flaw in OpenSSL, a software library for the protection and security of websites, was uncovered and reported it to the OpenSSL team, triggering widespread awareness and advice on what steps administrators ...
Richard Platt's insight:
Placing the Heartbleed events in perspective, Greg Kumparak, mobile editor at TechCrunch, said on Sunday that "There's a really good reason why security researchers were so spooked by the Heartbleed bug: there's just no silver bullet. Even if we somehow banded together to get most of the world's systems patched, a big chunk of the Internet would likely be left vulnerable. Sure enough, Heartbleed beats on."

Richard Platt's insight:

This is a TRIZ designed package from Samsung, after this latest 2nd gen iteration- which I strongly suspect was not released into the market because of yield losses - they seem to have forgotten that a product technology s-curve is tied to its process technology s-curve, thus the most likely reason why no one has seen any of the 1st generation of this product.  - The only way Samsung can out compete in this "mild shortage" of NAND technology is to crush the process improvement effort

HSAIL: AMD explains the future of CPU/GPU cooperation | ExtremeTech

HSAIL: AMD explains the future of CPU/GPU cooperation | ExtremeTech | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it
AMD's heterogeneous system architecture (HSA) initiative has been a steady interest since the company first started talking about
Richard Platt's insight:

AMD’s heterogeneous system architecture (HSA)  is an intermediate translation language that’s created at runtime and mapped to the hardware vendor’s ISA. It’s the secret sauce that allows multiple vendors like Imagination, ARM, AMD, and Qualcomm to benefit from the technology, even though they each have very different GPU hardware. - Making GPUs more programmable and useable has implications for mobile and for complicated tasks like facial recognition and natural language processing. AMD’s goal with HSAIL and HSA is to provide a common framework that can accelerate a number of tasks, but the road to gaming use may be more complex than for other areas, where CPUs and GPUs have virtually no history of data sharing and the goal is to allow the GPU to be leveraged in the first place.- Which is to say there is nothing saying that you can't do it

OTT Delivery: Creating Strategies for Video Streaming

OTT Delivery: Creating Strategies for Video Streaming | Internet of Things - Technology focus | Scoop.it

“Over the top” (OTT) is one of the most overused and ambiguous buzzwords in our industry.

 

In order to understand linear video delivery in OTT models, first, you have to look at what OTT means outside of video. To mobile operators, OTT is a scary proposition. Calls, text messaging, and image messaging had been entirely within operators’ control until now, and therefore presented an opportunity for revenue. For those operators, OTT services are an almost unavoidable symptom of smartphones requiring open internet access, and bring with them many services that compete with operators’ traditional revenue models. King of all these is Skype, and it provides a clear example of what “top” the service comes “over” to earn the moniker OTT: Namely the pay wall that is the per-minute billing system of the mobile operator.

 

In exactly the same way I often dogmatically emphasize that “cloud” is an economic term defining the move of CAPEX to OPEX when building IT infrastructure, OTT is also an economic term first and foremost. At best, it means that the operators are able to derive data transit and bandwidth-oriented revenues for the delivery of network service on behalf of providers who otherwise charge much higher premiums to end users or sponsors. At worst, operators are loss-leading that data transit to encourage subscribers to stay with them rather than take their business to other operators. All the while, OTT services are taking revenue from network operators’ subscribers and not (necessarily) sharing any of that revenue with the network operator.

 

However, with this economic common denominator noted, in any specific technical context the term OTT has a range of implementation models that ensure that the cost of this data transit and bandwidth delivery itself is as profitable as possible for the network operator, whether profit is measured in operator CDN revenues or in terms of subscriber retention.
