Pizza as a Service version 2.0 as explained by Paul Kerrison. An unofficial update to Albert Barron's Pizza as a Service.
We continue our exploration of open standards in server design and management with a closer look at the Intel® Rack Scale Design standard, along with some of the MegaRAC remote management products that incorporate this powerful and flexible hardware management API.
The Walk AMI program was created by AMI's Wellness Committee, a committee comprised of individuals who are responsible for implementing healther lifestyle options around the workplace. One of the key objectives the committee pushes is to get employees to be active around the workplace and outside of work as well. In order to get employees to start stepping it up, the Wellness Committee initiated a little friendly competition and got a walking party started. And thus, the AMI walking teams were formed!
Throughout the years, one area that BIOS development has traditionally been slightly lacking in is the availability of robust tools for BIOS debug. Yet the landscape of BIOS debug tools changed dramatically in 2009 when AMI introduced the AMIDebug™ Rx tool, the first dedicated, low-cost, portable debug solution.
Today, AMD announced the launch of their AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ Processors. American Megatrends Aptio®V UEFI firmware is the reference BIOS on the AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ Processors and AMD EPYC™ 7000 Series data center processors and platforms.
Continuing our look at open standards in server design and management, we focus next on the Redfish™ API from DMTF, along with the MegaRAC products and other AMI solutions that currently incorporate this standard.
Previously we covered the future of smarter homes through automation and IoT. But on a larger scale, another topic comes to mind: smart cities. With increasing levels of urbanization and influx of people moving to urban areas, the concept of smart cities has become prevalent, with some cities becoming models of what these smart cities will look like in the future.
"Free, as in beer": this phrase, heard often about the open software movement, also applies to the open standards movement throughout many areas of the computing industry. In this post, we look more closely at the need and inspiration for open standards in server and data center design and management and the reasons why AMI has embraced participation in the organizations devoted to advancing them.
Within the past few years, there has been a steady increase in the number of companies investing in flash-based storage arrays. With the price of SSDs going down year after year, SMBs and SMEs are now able to justify purchasing a flash-based unit due in a large part to their sheer performance benefits. Who can blame us for wanting these high performing units that provide high IOPS counts and low latencies to our infrastructures? This seems like a no-brainer, right? When choosing a flash-based unit, we are handed two options….
