In today's "Acronym Soup" blog post, we once again step over on the manageability side of things and ask the question: What is PSME?
Hurricane? Tornado? Fire? Not a problem! If you have a Disaster Recovery site (DR site), that is. A DR site is a location that a business uses to recover and reconstruct its IT operations and infrastructure when its primary facility is not accessible. Inaccessibility can be caused by a number of factors, whether it be a natural disaster or by a network or hardware failure. A DR site is crucial because it keeps an organization running, and ensures that the company does not get brought down to its knees during an unforeseen mishap.
So when you press that power button, what exactly happens? In simple terms, the system is going to go through the boot process, a process that is overseen by the one and only BIOS. It doesn't seem like the system is going through an entire process because it all happens so fast, but within those few seconds, a lot happens. For those curious, we've outlined the basics of what happens in those few seconds between the moment you press the power button and when the operating system start menu welcomes you.
All-flash storage is a hot topic around data centers these days, but the debate is ongoing as to whether or not an all-flash SAN has a place in every data center. While all-flash is an extraordinary technology, there are only a handful of data storage situations that truly require the performance of all-flash. For most, this performance is overkill.
IoTbrix is a cloud-based firmware development environment for IoT from American Megatrends. The IoT hardware and its logical operations are represented as graphical user interface components. It allows you to represent hardware connections and logical operations by dragging and dropping components. IoTbrix can generate firmware based upon this graphical representation. It provides an easy way for the you to generate your IoT firmware without the need of going through hardware specifications. Instead, you can concentrate on logical functions.
Embedded World 2018 is just around the corner and we're getting hyped! AMI has been attending Embedded World for more than 10 years and this year, we're excited to make another appearance to talk to attendees about the latest innovations we've been working on!
In the wake of recent news of the Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities, American Megatrends has released a statement outlining the company's recent activities, stance and response plan.
The lack of usable storage capacity is one of the constant walls IT professionals beat their head against. This is especially interesting since one of the primary focal points of any storage project is expansion capability. We always want to have a growth path should our organization experience planned (or unplanned) data growth. Nobody wants to resort to storage.
2018 is off to a vulnerable start in the technology world. Earlier this week, news circulated that two major security vulnerabilities, named Meltdown and Spectre, were uncovered by security researchers in systems that use processing chips from major vendors.
