If you think the public cloud can always help your customers cut their IT costs, better think again. Private clouds and on-premises solutions can actually be cheaper.
Don’t just take my word for it. Take the word of Michael Dell.
That’s the latest word from IDC. Today, the market watcher forecast a 5-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for augmented and virtual reality headsets of 52%.
By that measure, total sales of VR and AR headsets should hit nearly 69 million units worldwide by 2022.
Processor-based security threats got important updates this week.
On the Meltdown and Spectre front, Intel said it has now released microcode updates for all of its products released in the last 5 years. Intel also said that hardware-designed protections will be released on new processors shipping later this year.
Separately, a cybersecurity consulting firm said it has found 13 critical vulnerabilities and manufacturer backdoors throughout AMD’s Ryzen and Epyc processor product lines.
Intel relies big-time on its partners. That’s why the company has just acknowledged the outstanding achievements of its partners.
At the Intel Partner Connect event, held earlier this month in Maryland, Intel bestowed its 2017 Partner of the Year awards.

The convergence of artificial intelligence and high-performance computing is coming. And not in the far-off future. But now.

Until recently, most AI deep training work was done on single-node systems beefed up with multiple GPUs.
The concept of an all-in-one (AIO) PC has changed dramatically.
When this compact, clutter-free form factor was introduced back in the 1980s, the most amazing part was that multiple components could be housed in the same chassis.
Oh, how times have changed!
Today’s AIO systems are powerful enough to supplant their bulky desktop brethren. Recent advances in graphics processing, miniaturization and touch-screen technology could even elevate the AIO to king of the PC hill — and relegate the classic desktop design to the annals of computer history.
Healthcare organizations desperately need help from security-minded tech providers.
Last year, the number of attacks on healthcare organizations worldwide increased by more than 210%, according to new figures from McAfee Labs.

Ready for a pleasant surprise? Server sales last year were strong.
How strong? According to new figures from Gartner, unit shipments of servers rose 3% worldwide for the full year 2017, while sales revenue rose a little over 10%.
This spring, Microsoft plans to release an update to Windows 10 that will include changes to the setup experience for privacy settings.
Windows Insiders started getting a sneak preview of the new features yesterday. Microsoft says it will gather their feedback and potentially make tweaks based on their likes and dislikes.
Win10’s new privacy settings will include:
