Why your customers’ next PC might be a Chromebook

Peter Krass's picture

Chromebooks are fine for K-12 kids. But do they make sense for business?

Increasingly, yes.

Google has this month started advertising Chromebooks on prime-time TV. The campaign features the slogan, “If you’ve changed the way you do pretty much anything, You Chromebook.” The ad shows people watching TV, working out in the gym, etc. — the idea being that whatever you do, you can do it on a Chromebook.

That includes working.

Intel doubles Optane SSD capacity — and adds manufacturing capacity

Peter Krass's picture

There’s big news on the Intel Optane front. The company has doubled the capacity of a solid state drive for the data center that uses Optane technology. And it has just opened a new fabrication plant to manufacture a key Optane component.

Optane is Intel’s innovative technology for decreasing latency and accelerating systems for workloads that demand large capacity and fast storage. Optane does all that by combining 3D XPoint memory media, Intel memory and controllers, and Interconnect IP and software.

Capacity gains

How do you pay for digital transformation?

Peter Krass's picture

“Digital transformation” is my nomination for this year’s No. 1 buzz phrase. But how do you — and your clients — pay for it? That’s the big question.

To be fair, “digital transformation” is a popular phrase for good reason. Nearly every organization is watching its industry be transformed by the digital technologies we know and love.

Your customers’ multi-cloud environments now have a modern platform

Peter Krass's picture

The data center of the future is multi-cloud. Intel and its partners want to make that future easier and more successful for you and your customers.

Multi-cloud is the future because the cloud isn’t a one-size-fits-all proposition. Instead, it turns out, a public cloud is great for some applications, but not all. Same thing for an on-premises private cloud. Both are powerful, but only when and where appropriate.

Intel and AMD (!) partner on chipset for performance plus portability

Peter Krass's picture

Do you have customers who’d like enough processing power on their tablets and 2-in-1s to do the same kinds of heavy-duty computing — advanced content creation, AAA gaming and VR experiences — they now do on their laptops and desktop PCs?

Intel and — wait for it — AMD are on the case. These two erstwhile rivals have teamed up to create a new processor set that promises to end the tradeoff between performance and portability.
