Q: What do your clients have in common with the U.S. Democratic National Committee (DNC)?
A: Both are subject to cyber attacks involving non-malware.
Because malware gets much of the attention, you might think it’s the biggest cyber threat. But a new report, based on a recent survey of security researchers, finds otherwise.
With today’s smartphones so powerful (and expensive), the idea of a phone doubling as a computer makes a certain kind of sense. Why lug around both a laptop and phone if just 1 device could do the work of both, and at roughly half the cost?
If you have small-business clients who want to keep workstations and servers on-premises, Intel has a new processor family for you.
Intel yesterday introduced its Xeon E3-1200 v6 processor family. There are 8 versions, all designed for both entry-level workstations used by business pros and entry-level servers used by SMBs. The new processors are shipping now.
Earlier this month, Intel introduced what it called its “most responsive” data center solid state drive (SSD), the Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X series.
Yesterday Intel followed up by introducing a PC version, the Intel Optane module for desktops.
Earlier this month, we told you that Lenovo is getting busy in the data center, creating new products, establishing a new tiered program for the channel, and introducing innovative storage appliances.
Now Lenovo has beefed up its year-old Data Center Group (DCG) by creating 5 new business units and both hiring and promoting executive to lead them.
The 5 new business units within Lenovo’s DCG are:
If your clients include larger corporations, and you’re serving only their IT departments, you may want to rethink that.
That's because non-IT line of business (LoB) managers increasingly buy a lot of technology.
How much? Well, market watcher IDC now predicts that LoB purchases of corporate IT products and services worldwide this year will hit $609 billion, up 6% from last year.
Apple reshuffled its tablet lineup yesterday, and for solution providers, there are some important takeaways.
In case you missed it, Apple yesterday introduced an iPad tablet powered by a 64-bit Apple A9 processor, fitted with a 3.1-megapixel 9.7-inch display, and retailing for as little as $329. That price will get you a Wi-Fi tablet with 32GB of storage capacity. Shipments are set to start this Friday, Mar. 24.
Attention, solution providers: IT departments need your help with their hybrid cloud/non-cloud deployments. Especially with cloud assessments, training, migration, testing and transformation services.
So finds a new survey of 1,500 IT decision-makers in a range of industries worldwide. While the respondents worked at large organizations, the findings should have implications for solution providers serving SMBs, too.
The company yesterday introduced what it’s calling “the most responsive” data center solid state drive (SSD), the Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X series.
Intel promises the new drives can help remove data bottlenecks, improve CPU utilization and let users do more work with the same number of servers.
Sure, Lenovo is the top PC supplier by market share worldwide. But have you checked out Lenovo’s activity in the data center lately?
Lenovo has big plans for both its data center group (DCG) and the channel. Sammy Kinlaw, channel chief for Lenovo North America, gave a presentation on this subject last week at the XChange Solution Provider 2017 conference held in National Harbor, Md.
