Supermicro updates one-socket server line

    The single-socket server used to be the lowest end of servers, but potent new chips are raising its value.

    For the longest time, single-socket servers were the bottom of the server hierarchy, using “server” chips weaker than what you might find on a desktop. There were even servers that used the Atom processor. These were departmental servers doing the most menial of tasks, like file and print serving.

      Computational storage startup Pliops launches flagship product

        The Pliops eXtreme Data Processor moves your app to flash storage to process data where it resides rather than load it into memory.

        A startup called Pliops has emerged from stealth mode with a new way to do data processing. Rather than load data into main memory as is traditionally done, the Pliops technology offloads data and the application to a PCI Express card, and data is processed where it is stored, thus freeing up the CPU for other tasks.
