05 Jun 2017 IBM Research Alliance Builds New Transistor for 5nm Technology [64140]
IBM, June 5th 2017

Less than two years since announcing a 7nm test chip, scientists have achieved another breakthrough

IBM, its Research Alliance partners GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Samsung, and equipment suppliers have developed an industry-first process to build silicon nanosheet transistors that will enable 5 nanometer (nm) chips. The details of the process will be presented at the 2017 Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits conference in Kyoto, Japan. In less than two years since developing a 7nm test node chip with 20 billion transistors, scientists have paved the way for 30 billion switches on a fingernail-sized chip.

The resulting increase in performance will help accelerate cognitive computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), and other data-intensive applications delivered in the cloud. The power savings could also mean that the batteries in smartphones and other mobile products could last two to three times longer than today's devices, before needing to be charged.

Friday, June 9th, 2017: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Nova Southeastern University - Carl DeSantis Building

Enjoy a Full day of training with this dynamic duo! Pankaj (PJ) and David!!!

They will be doing a deep dive on performance and scalability, archive and availability, security, reporting, and administration topics.

On performance and scalability, we will explore leveraging In-Memory OLTP as well as Columnstore Indexes. In-Memory OLTP, is a new engine for transaction processing and integrates into the SQL Server Engine improving database performance by 5-30x.

31 May 2017 Nutanix and Dell Solutions Help Vast-Auto Distribution Obtain Faster Performance and Fewer CapEx and OpEx Costs [63976]
Nutanix, May 31st 2017

Nutanix, Inc., a leader in enterprise cloud computing, announced that Vast-Auto Distribution has opted to use the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud on Dell EMC XC Series for faster performance and fewer administrative costs. By transitioning to a Nutanix and Dell EMC virtualized solution, the company reduced its previous expenses needed to maintain three expensive HPE LeftHand storage systems by consolidating down to one system with storage and compute functionality included.

Vast-Auto Distribution is a provider of auto parts in Eastern Canada, and oversees hosted IT services for over 50 parts stores and 80 garages. Previously, Vast-Auto Distribution's IT team had been relying on aging five-year-old legacy infrastructure, including SAN servers, which required manually spreading and monitoring all its customers' day-end processes throughout the night.

Yet for all the hype, and despite decades of investments in IT infrastructure, very few companies say they're hitting the mark..."
