Let's take a peek deep into the the AMI Archives and focus on one of AMI’s best-known and most beloved products, one that helped the company to an enormous degree in building our name and establishing our legacy as a technology innovator: AMIBIOS 8. This product stands out as the last in the line of legacy BIOS firmware solutions from AMI, which ushered in the transition period to firmware based on the EFI specification and beyond.
Everyone has their acronyms. In my house, if I ask, "PT?" I would be asking if we are having Pizza Tonight. If you ask that at boot camp, it would be Physical Training. In the BIOS/BMC firmware development community, there are a bunch. Here's a list of just a few.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI) have become a trending topic throughout the IT industry, but, as with all revolutionary technologies, it has raised many questions regarding its best practices for implementation. While the concept of virtualized desktops seems straight forward, VDI carries a multitude of implementation strategies – not to mention the numerous vendors in VDI, each with their own claims and advantages. However, among the seemingly endless amount of implementation options, there are two primary strategies – implementing VDI as either an Integrated solution, or as a Standalone architecture.
We like to keep up with the latest tech shows to learn about the latest developments various tech companies are working on.

In today's post, we offer a summary of recent reports on the upcoming Tsubame 3 supercomputer from Professor Satoshi Matsuoka of the Tokyo Institute of Technology as it pushes into the next great frontier in high performance computing (HPC), called AI-HPC Hybrid Workflows, together with some speculation on what some of the features of this powerful system might be.
On Monday, August 21, 2017, people around the nation and world stepped outside and looked up to the sky. There was no bird, plane or Superman in the sky, but rather, an awe-inspiring natural wonder. Trending across the internet was #SolarEclipse and #Eclipse2017, with everyone marveling at the moment where the sun was completely blocked by the moon. The Solar Eclipse of 2017 was probably one of the most anticipated, talked about, hot topic of 2017. People were throwing their solar shades on to immerse themselves in the magic of the solar eclipse. This past Monday, we had some employees drive up to northern Georgia to see the eclipse on the path of totality while the others who stayed at the office had a little viewing party of their own!
In our final post on the topic of open standards in server design and management, we will look at the Open Compute Project originally devised and promoted by social media giant Facebook back in 2009.
In the technology sector, we always see innovative things being developed. Sometimes you ask yourself, "I wonder if this kind of technology exists yet?" and when you pull up a Google search, you see that some sort of development for that particular technology is in fact, in progress.
