Masergy Presents Managed SD-WAN Service

Masergy Communications announces a second managed SD-WAN service-- SD-WAN Go, a "light" option aimed for businesses on a budget providing seamless integration with Masergy hybrid networking solutions.

SD-WAN Go uses either existing or new connections (private, dedicated, broadband or 4G) to securely tunnel and route data across the public internet and over the Masergy software-defined platform. It is "transport-agnostic," with a "bring-your-own-bandwidth" model allowing it interoperate with 3rd party vendor circuits or WANs. Masergy can also provide the connection.

HPE Prototypes The Machine

HPE inches closer towards realising its long-running The Machine program as it shows a prototype of the memory-driven computer-- an ARM-powered monster featuring 160TB of memory spread across 40 physical nodes.

First announced back in 2014, The Machine brings together a number of advanced technologies. The aforementioned 160TB of memory and nodes are interconnected using a new fabric protocol, while a custom Linux-based OS runs on ThunderX2, the 2nd generation Cavium dual socket-capable ARMv8-A system on a chip. Also included are photonics/optical communication links (including the new X1 photonics module) and software tools able to handle the large amount of persistent memory.

Nvidia Unveils First Volta-Based GPU

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.

Built 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).

Brocade Intros G610 Storage Switch

Brocade presents the G610-- an entry-level hardwired storage switch designed for 24/7 connectivity to all-flash datacentres running on Brocade Gen 6 Fibre Channel connectivity.

As an entry-level switch the G610 is ideal for a number of environments, including small shared storage fabrics and network-edge datacentre deployments. It scales from 8 to up to 24 ports per switch, and Brocade promises installation is easy thanks to a simplified point-and-click user interface.

“For all its benefits, flash storage is now one of the foundations for enterprise digital transformation initiatives," the company says. "With the new G610 switch, we have lowered the entry point to our reputed Brocade Gen 6 Fibre Channel technology without any technical compromises, enabling customers to optimise their storage performance."

Riverbed Acquires Xirrus

Riverbed aims to boost its SteelConnect SD-WAN offering as it acquires cloud-enabled wifi network provider Xirrus for an undisclosed sum.

The acquisition, Riverbed says, provides customers and partners with unified connectivity and policy-based orchestration spanning the entire distributed network, be it WAN, LAN/WLAN, datacentre and the cloud. In addition, Xirrus products will remain available as standalone enterprise WLAN solutions.

Xirrus technology promises consistent "wired-like" performance through the combination of high-density access points, access points and cloud services. On the other hand SteelConnect is a differentiated SD-WAN solution with centralised management spanning the entire network fabric with policy-based orchestration and one-click connectivity to AWS and Microsoft Azure.
