Intel Releases Xeon D-2100 Processor for Edge Computing

As technologies like automation, linked sensors, self-driving cars, and the Internet of Things (IoT) become more mainstream, new chip designs are needed. Intel is looking to answer those demands with the Xeon D-2100 processor. This new System-on-Chip (SoC) processor is designed specifically for edge computing, allowing devices to process data instead of sending it to the cloud.

The Silicon Valley giant described its newest processor as building on the innovation and performance of the Xeon Scalable program. The Xeon D-2100 processor is expected to meet the distinct power and space requirements that edge computing demands. The chip can handle analytics, computing, data security, networking, and storage.

Sandra Rivera, Intel’s Network Platforms Group’s Senior Vice President and General Manager, explained that in order to take advantage of the opportunities opened up by 5G and cloud networks, service providers have to enhance their data center and edge structure. Otherwise, they won’t be able to meet the demands of end users and their smart devices.

Rivera added that the D-2100 processor makes it possible for “service providers and enterprises to deliver the maximum amount of compute intelligence at the edge of the web tier while expending the least power.”

Intel’s new processors will also allow for CoSPs to provide high-performing, improved networking services with optimized performance using less power when using virtual customer premise equipment (vCPE) like encryption services and VPNs.

The Xeon D-2100 processor is comprised of as much as 18 “Skylake-server” generation Xeon cores and QuickAssist Technology. It comes with around 100Gps of integrated cryptography, encryption, and decryption acceleration. Intel also gave assurances that the new processors will carry enhanced system software that safeguards against “Meltdown” and “Spectre” security exploits.

Intel believes the new chip will be especially valuable in conjunction with 5G technologies, like virtual reality apps that are currently being developed for mobile devices. The company is also confident it will be helpful for use in communications networks like VPNs and wide area networks.

Microsoft Releases Windows 10 S in Response to Chrome OS Challenge

Microsoft has promised stability and security to users as it launched Windows 10 S, a stripped down operating system (OS), to ward off the increasing threat posed by Google Chrome OS.

The new software is intended as an education tool and the company showed in a demo that the device can accept user logins in around 15 seconds. However, one drawback to Windows 10 S is that users will only be able to install apps downloaded from the Windows Store. This means that executable programs won’t be recognized unless they are listed by Microsoft.

“Everything that runs on Windows 10 S is downloaded from the Windows Store,” Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s Windows chief, saidFor those who are worried about being stuck with Microsoft Edge, Myerson clarified that “Windows 10 S will run any browser in the Windows Store,” provided that Chrome or Firefox is listed.

This was the same model adopted by Microsoft on its controversial RT-operated tablets. The software giant stopped production in February 2015 after suffering a paltry reception. PC manufacturers also refused to carry the OS due to restrictions on API access.

Running only native apps to the Universal Windows Program, the Windows 10 S is touted to have a longer battery life. Another advantage for schools is that vulnerabilities in their PCs and IT systems have been eliminated.

While Windows is still the preferred option for PCs and tablets (there are 1.25 billion computers running a version of Windows today), Chrome is quickly creeping up on Microsoft. This would have been unthinkable eight years ago when Chrome OS was first announced.

However, Google invested in improving the performance, speed, and stability of their OS and schools have started to take notice. They then started purchasing Chromebooks, putting a dent in Windows’ dominance of the market. In fact, by May of last year, Chrome-based devices have outsold the Mac for the very first time.

Prices for PCs running Windows 10 S will start at $ 189. There’s also an upgrade option for schools, which need more functionality. They can opt to upgrade to Windows Pro without any additional costs. Home users, however, will have to pay $ 50 for that option.

Along with the purchase of Windows 10 S, schools will also receive free access to Minecraft Education Edition for one year in addition to Office 365 for Education with Microsoft Teams.

Google Plus Releases New Layout for Profiles

google-plusMany Google+ users jumped on the search giant’s social network yesterday and
found a completely new layout waiting for them when they accessed their profile
pages.

The profile page, a standard feature on any social network, was redesigned
according to feedback that Google gleaned from users. It also introduces features commonly found on other networks in an attempt to broaden the appeal of the growing platform.

Here’s a look at what’s included in the changes.

New, Larger Cover Photo

One of the first things users notice when accessing their profile pages is the larger and
more prominent cover photo. Google had long offered two options for cover photo
styles: the filmstrip and the banner cover photo. With today’s change, everyone is
moving to a significantly larger cover photo that measures 2,120 pixels x 1,192 pixels.
This gives the most creative among us more room to work with to stand out from the
crowd.

A “Cards” Style Design for the About Tab

Google+ update

The “about” page on the profile saw a significant change. Google Plus is moving
towards a “cards” style display of content in each section. This should make the content
a little easier to read. Additionally, the “Work” section includes a new feature: skills.
Much in the same way you can list skills on your LinkedIn profile, you can now list skills
on your Google Plus profile. Is Google shooting across the bow at LinkedIn to make a
play in the business networking world? Only time will tell, but I’ve heard some chatter today on Google+ that this could be the beginning of greater customization of the “What’s Hot” and the “trending” elements.

A Tab for “Reviews”

Google has driven hard at consolidating the online review universe and bringing it under
the Google+ umbrella. Now they’ve provided extra visibility to the places you review
by stashing them all under a single tab. No doubt they are trying to encourage more
reviews as well as checking out the places those in your circles have reviewed as I’m
certain this will fuel the strength of Google search.

The changes are slowly rolling out, so if you don’t have them yet, just be patient as they
should arrive to you soon. For those that already have the changes, what are your
thoughts? Do you like the new layout? Is it easier to use? If you’re not on Google Plus,
does this make you more inclined to use the social network?
