IDC: Big Data Sees Strong Growth

E-mail Print PDF

IDC forecasts the global big data technology and services market will grow big in the near future, with a CAGR of 23.1% over the 2014-2019 period, with annual spending to reach $48.6 billion in 2019.

Big data"The ever-increasing appetite of businesses to embrace emerging big data-related software and infrastructure technologies while keeping the implementation costs low has led to the creation of a rich ecosystem of new and incumbent suppliers," the analyst remarks. "At the same time, the market opportunity is spurring new investments and M&A activity as incumbent suppliers seek to maintain their relevance by developing comprehensive solutions and new go-to-market paths."

All the 3 big data submarkets-- infrastructure, software and services-- will grow over the next 5 years. Infrastructure (covers computing, networking, storage and security) will grow at a 27.1% CAGR. Software (information management, discovery and analytics, applications software) will grow at a CAGR of 26.2% and the services (professional and support services for infrastructure and software) CAGR should reach 22.7%.

HPE Intros SMB Servers

E-mail Print PDF

HPE announces a set of end-to-end solutions aimed at SMBs-- the ProLiant Tower and Rack Gen9 servers, the pre-engineered and configured Flex Solutions and a Small Business Marketplace e-commerce platform.

HP Server“Small and midsize businesses have to embrace major enterprise technology trends but with a fraction of the resources and budget,” the company says. “Hewlett Packard Enterprise is launching new tools that will allow our SMB customers to easily and affordably adapt to the changing technology landscape without comprising quality, efficiency and flexibility.”

The two servers are part of the ProLiant 10 and 100 series, and carry Intel Xeon E5-2600v3 and E3-1200 v5 series hardware. The DL20 is a compact entry-level rack server designed for both onsite and remote service, while the ML30 is a standalone unit ideal for SMBs and home office requiring a wide range of storage expandability.

Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) presents a first all-flash storage array family, part of its "flash first" solution strategy-- the VSP F series, designed to make use of the HDS-built FMD DC2 flash modules.

HDS flashThe VSP F series consists of the  VSP F400, F600 and F800. HDS promises performance reaching up to 1.4 million IOPS, as well as latencies less than 1ms (even at maximum scale), built-in penalty-free inline compression technology and "the industry's only" 100% data availability guarantee.

Bluetooth Gets More Range, Speed

E-mail Print PDF

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) announces the features Bluetooth will be getting in 2016-- including range and speed improvements, as well as the addition of mesh networking.

Bluetooth networkBluetooth Smart speed is set to increase by up to 4x, while speed will be up by 100%-- without, crucially, an increase in energy consumption, even as critical applications get faster data transfers, increased responsiveness and lower latency.

The addition of mesh networking also allows Bluetooth devices to work together in order to cover an entire area or building, opening home and industrial IoT applications. The Bluetooth SIG has a group working on the technology, the imaginatively named Bluetooth Smart Mesh Working Group.

IBM Combines Power and Cooling in "5D Electronic Blood"

E-mail Print PDF

IBM researchers to biology for inspiration in the building of the next generation of computing technology-- so much so it is set to combine power and cooling in "5D electronic blood."

Electronic bloodThe term "5D electronic blood" might sound like something out of science fiction but it is really a fairly simple, if futuristic, concept. It involves an electrochemical mix of cooling fluid and "redox couples" able to generate electricity (via oxidisation) while flowing through microfluidic channels built into a chip. Thus the fluid not only cools the chip, but also delivers power. A bit like blood, really.

The researchers say the technology allows for more innovative computer configurations, with multiple CPUs and GPUs built on top of each other and and each chip getting a unique power and cooling system. Such a system eliminates hotpots, allowing for higher clocking speeds and more efficient machines.
