The Intel chips... Extract drivers as sys/inf files from infinst_autol.exe executable?Back Re-introducing myself, in case you didn’t feel like clicking on me to see what I look like, I am an ETS(Enterprise Technical Specialist) for Intel.

Unix migration to Xeon - Performance you need at a price you can't ignoreBack Almost a year ago I posted an article about why the time is right for cloud computing. In that post, I spoke a lot about the changes that made the cloud an interesting option. I will stop here to define ... Technology that Opens the CloudsBack I think it was the mid 80's when McDonald's advertised the "McDLT" (I loved that music). The claim to fame for this 'burger' was the packaging.

None of these t... VMM / Hypervisor ( XENSERVER, ESX, KVM ) support for Intel Raid ControllerBack I have been on a theme as of late with posts related to legacy migration.

Out of Band Management! 'Real' ( read as Xeon) workstations have been the unsupported crossbreeds between servers and clients. For years servers have been managed using a "base management controller". ... Normally I post some "opinion" or "interesting reference". Consider this post an open request. Per my earlier posts on Sparc ( Sparc Arrest ) lots of folks are migrating off legacy Sparc to current X86.&... Pun intended. Sparc migration has been the "topic de jeur" or more accurately, if less cliche, the "topic de année", with many of my customers. I am a solution engineer covering the Northwest and Ca... The top500 is a highly watched list in the high performance computing community. My employer, Intel, is in no way immune to bragging about their success in this space. Recently I have heard many complain... Optimistic about a new top 500 listBack I have been in this industry a long time. In that time there have been a lot of trends that were the “next big thing” and “going to change everything.” Some of them really did – l... Just because it is a buzz word, don’t discount cloudsBack I have watched the growth of Cloud-mania and although I do think it is part hype ala the lexicon de jeur, that doesn't mean it isn't a really big deal.

Hey You, Get Off of My Cloud - how important is isolation and trust?Back This new crop of servers based on the Xeon 7500 processor are seriously game changing.

Pretty much every year Intel introduces a new Xeon processor. Those who have heard the story recognize this as the Tic Tock model. On Tic years the manufacturin... Your future data center – is it bigger than a breadbox?Back Even the name is a sort of a misnomer. Not that there isn’t a lot of physical security around most data centers. The doors are locked and not even regular employees have access. This is necessa... I wrote a few weeks ago about the end of the mini generation. This time I thought I would dig out some data to support my case. My personal anecdotal evidence is what I am hearing from my customers. ... Replacing big iron with small iron (cash for clunkers 2?)Back I talk with a lot of customers. Since the initial disclosure, there has been a groundswell of EXcitement(bad geek pun) for the upcoming Nehalem EX launch. I think this is primarily driven by the realizatio... Growing EXcitement over Nehalem EXBack Sunsets can last a while, but in the end the sun will go down. I talk to a lot of companies and listen to a lot of data center managers.
