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.

Kevin Jacoby's picture

Intel’s new SSDs could have your customers rethinking their data-center architectures in a big way.

These solid-state drives offer a brand-new form factor for the first time in years. They also pack updated non-volatile memory and a SATA solution for legacy hardware. Get ready for a whole new ballgame.

SATA, introduced back in 2000, quickly became the gold standard for computer bus interfacing. Though the world is now moving on to newer solutions — especially the PCIe/NVMe protocol — many data centers still rely on this turn-of-the-century mainstay.

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.
