RedLock Emerges to Protect Cloud Infrastructure

E-mail Print PDF

Cloud infrastructure security startup RedLock launches with a first product-- Cloud 360, a cloud-based security platform able to manage security and compliance risk across public cloud infrastructure.

RedLockCloud 360 integrates with infrastructure at the API, with no agent or proxy required. It currently supports AWS and Google Cloud (with Azure to follow later on), and enables organisations to visualise the entire public cloud environment, across multiple cloud service providers, down to every component. It discovers workloads and links configuration, user activity, network traffic and threat intelligence data in order to identify risks.

Nvidia Unveils First Volta-Based GPU

E-mail Print PDF

Nvidia presents the Tesla V100-- the first GPU based on the company's Volta architecture, packing 3840 CUDA cores and 15 billion transistors on a 815mm slab of silicon.

Nvidia VoltaBuilt using a 12-nanometer manufacturing process, the Tesla V100 is aimed at high performance computing applications. As the successor to the current Pacal GPU flagship, the Tesla P100, it features a redesigned streaming architecture promising a 50% increase in efficiency compared to Pascal, enabling "major boosts in FP32 and FP64 performance in the same power envelope."

In addition the GPU carries 672 tensor cores (TCs)-- a new kind of core designed for machine learning operations. The company claims these boost performance by 4x over Pascal, and make the V100 superior to the Google dedicated tensor processing unit (TPU).

Colocation datacentre, cloud service provider and network fabric directory Cloudscene presents a first quarterly leaderboard of top 10 datacentres in EMEA, as well as the rest of the world.

Brought about following increasing demand for more transparency and independent data comparing major colocation service providers, the top 10 lists are chosen from a pool of over 4900 service providers listed on Cloudscene. To determine the ranking, the company calculates a combined score using density (number of facilities) and connectivity (number of PoPs).

The EMEA leaderboard for Q1 2017 is as follows:

Cisco Buys Conversational AI With MindMeld

E-mail Print PDF

Cisco pays $125 million for MindMeld, a startup with a "unique AI platform that enables customers to build intelligent and human-like conversational interfaces for any application or device."

Cisco mindmeldLaunched in 2012 as Expect Labs, MindMeld initially worked on an API allowing developers to add a voice interface to apps using a few lines of code. Following that MindMeld expanded its product offering to a suite of APIs for parsing, reasoning and generating language, making it relevant to Cisco's interests.

As Cisco puts it, AI and machine learning will allow customers to self-manage networks and datacentres, stay ahead of security attacks, embed intelligence at the edge, deliver predictive analytics and, ultimately, "revolutionise the workplace." That, or simply interact with software such as Spark using natural language commands.
