Big Blues for IBM?

October 21st, 2014

IBM’s exit from semiconductor manufacturing came with an interesting price tag: $1.5 billion. That’s how much Big Blue paid GlobalFoundries to take its money-losing chip unit off its hands. GlobalFoundries itself was a spinoff from x86 company AMD, which likewise struggled in the silicon business against the titan Intel. According to Patrick Thibodeau at Computerworld, this move signals that “IBM is shifting from manufacturing to a company that focuses on research, software and advanced systems devel[...]

Scaling Network Traffic Visibility to 100 Gbps

October 20th, 2014

As enterprise networks scale to 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps, network managers encounter a serious problem: many of today’s traffic monitoring, management and security tools are incapable of operating well, or even at all, at these high data rates. Complicating this challenge is the need to have a sufficient number of interface ports, supporting data rates ranging from 100 Mbps to 100 Gbps, to access all of network links needed to get full visibility into t[...]

When Urban Legends Lead to Danger: Keeping Your Data Center Safe With the Truth About DDoS Attacks

October 16th, 2014

The SANS 2014 DDoS Survey is quite telling. It reports that almost 40% of enterprises are completely or mostly unprepared for DDoS attacks.

Four Questions About Women and Men in Technology

October 14th, 2014

Many major technology companies (e.g., Google, Microsoft, Twitter, Yahoo and so on) have at some point been lambasted in the media—whether by reporters or themselves—about how many women they employ. This quasi-religious ritual typically involves expressing regret (repentance) for corporate sins and then announcing some new program to correct the problem (penance). But the focus on technology in particular raises a number of questions about consistency and equity, especially since appeals for more women in the[...]
