Do you need a just-in-time solution for tough mini PCs? If so, Intel is now giving you some new options.
Specifically, Intel has expanded its Intel NUC Rugged product line to include a modular option. This gives ecosystem partners and integrators new and flexible options for this popular mini PC.
To help fight the coronavirus pandemic, tech companies are doing their part. Here’s some of who’s stepping up:
Intel says it will continue to pay all contractors and employees who have been asked to work from home or self-quarantine, and it will reimburse employees for up to 15 days of care services. Also, the company plans to continue paying all service partners worldwide for at least the next 2 months.
How will the coronavirus pandemic affect the world of tech? That’s the question of the week. And here’s your tech provider’s roundup on the best info from leading market watchers.
What HR pros say
Working from home this week? You’re far from alone. Nearly 9 in 10 organizations have either encouraged or required employees to work from home, finds a survey of HR executives worldwide fielded this past Tuesday.

Here’s a quick roundup of some of what leading tech companies are doing in response to the coronavirus pandemic. All information is current as of this morning, and highly subject to change.
Intel is now recommending that all its employees work from home, if their roles allow. Hourly workers will continue to be paid in full for at least the next 2 months.
Your customers’ meetings don’t have to be a drag. You can help them collaborate more effectively. Tell them about the latest Intel NUC videoconferencing solutions.
You may already know about the Intel NUC Mini PC family. These devices get used by retailers, schools, factories — basically, anyone who needs a small yet powerful PC.
How would your data center customers like a new approach to storage, one that gives them up to:
> 10x more virtual machines
> 3x less latency
> 9x lower cost per performance
And all at a cost that’s up to 75% lower than what they pay now?
Your customers would like that, right? Then tell them about it. But you might not want to mention the technology behind these gains: data caching.
Your cloud customers today need more than just components — they need total solutions. But what if that’s something you can’t yet deliver?
For help delivering total cloud solutions, many tech providers are turning to Intel. You already know about Intel’s innovative components, including client and data-center processors, network adapters, storage devices and must more. But today Intel also offers industry-leading cloud solutions and training.
Are you ready for network democratization?
That’s the goal of a new networking approach: NVMe over TCP with ADQ. Simply stated, this networking combo promises the higher speeds of networks purpose-built for storage, but without the complexity and higher costs.
NVMe — short for Non-Volatile Memory Express — is a transport protocol for storage over PCIe. It offers low latency (aka high speeds) with high reliability. But to transport NVMe over a network, you also need to protect the data from interruptions and dropped packets.
Are your customers looking for energy-efficient networking components they can run at various speeds and on existing cables?
If so, they have a new reason to be excited: Intel’s newest generation of Ethernet network adapters are shipping.
These are the Intel Ethernet Network Adapters X710-T2L and X710-T4L. Introduced late last year, the T2L is a dual-port version (as indicated by the “2”), and it just started shipping. The other model, dubbed T4L, is a quad-port version (as indicated by the “4”).
