Azul Goes Java Embedded

Azul Systems, the company behind the wildly popular Zing and Zulu runtimes for Java, has been discussing its latest product, Zulu Embedded. Azul specializes in bespoke open source Java runtimes and has announced that it is expanding into embedded product lines. Scott Sellers, CEO and co-founder, and Howard Green, VP of marketing, were keen to extol the virtues of an embedded system. “If you go with an Oracle system, not only do you have to pay a license fee but you are restricted to off-the-peg...

HP Takes Helion OpenStack Private

HP has announced its first off-the-shelf configured private cloud based on OpenStack and Cloud Foundry. HP Helion Rack continues the Helion naming convention for HP’s cloud offerings, and will, it is hoped, help enterprise IT departments speed up cloud deployment by offering a solid template system and removing the months of design and build. Helion Rack is a “complete” private cloud with integrated infrastructure-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service capabilities that mean it...

Did Astronomers Correctly Identify A Supernova Explosion?

Did Astronomers Correctly Identify A Supernova Explosion?

Cosmic detectives are investigating a case of mistaken stellar identity: An exploding star that was once thought to be the oldest recorded nova — a nuclear explosion on the surface of a dead star — was more likely caused by the merger of two stars. In 1670, a bright new star appeared in the constellation Cygnus, the Swan, and stayed there for two years — you can see the location of the new stars in this video. The short-lived star was grouped into the “nova” category, but over...

Intel’s Broadwell Spec Apparently Leaked

People working for the Chinese VR Zone  have found evidence that Intel will only be launching two Broadwell desktop processors in Q2 2015. The new Broadwell Desktop CPUs are based on the LGA1150 pin layout and will be compatible with the current Z97 motherboards. ASUS and ASRock recently announced that their motherboards will be able to handle the new 14nm Broadwell processors with a BIOS update. The two new CPUs will be the Intel Core i7-5775C and Core i5-5675C. There are some odd things on this...

Cisco Uncovers Malware Targeting POS Systems

Cisco has revealed details of a new point of sale (PoS) attack that could part firms from money and users from personal data. The threat has been called PoSeidon by the Cisco team and comes at a time when eyes are on security breaches at firms like Target. Cisco said in a blog post that PoSeidon is a new threat that has the ability to breach machines and scrape them for credit card information. Credit card numbers and keylogger data is sent to an exfiltration server, while the mechanism is able to...

Astronomers Find Extrasolar Planets Everywhere

Astronomers Find Extrasolar Planets Everywhere

When Captain Cook sailed into Botany Bay in 1770, we did not know how many planets were in our solar system. We only knew about Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Based on the orbits of these planets, 18th century European astronomers invented what is now called the Titius-Bode relation. It’s a simple empirical relation that describes the relative distances between the planets and the sun. It predicted the orbit of another planet beyond Saturn and another planet in the gap between...

Can Intel Succeed In The Mobile Space?

Intel has launched its latest campaign to get back into the mobile market, and this time it might just get away with it. Intel’s involvement in mobile is a history of dropped balls and lost opportunities. In 1996, Intel supplied the processor for the Nokia Communicator that had early features of smartphones, it lost this to AMD. In 1999, it supplied the computer processor for the early BlackBerry, but sold the business to Marvell in 2005. In 2004, it supplied the brains for the Palm Treo 650,...

Did Supernovas Create Space Dust?

Giant dust clouds seen in the early universe may have been created by exploding stars, a discovery that suggests supernovas were prolific space dust factories for ancient galaxies, scientists say. This finding, which was made by the SOFIA flying observatory, may shed light on how the dust that helped form countless stars and galaxies was created, the scientists added. The elements that make up everything from people to planets are essentially stardust. These elements are forged in stars by nuclear...

SUSE To Bring Hadoop To IBM z Mainframes

SUSE and Apache Hadoop vendor Veristorm are teaming up to bring Hadoop to IBM z and IBM Power systems. The result will mean that regardless of system architecture, users will be able to run Apache Hadoop within a Linux container on their existing hardware, meaning that more users than ever will be able to process big data into meaningful information to inform their business decisions. SUSE’s Veristorm Data Hub and vStorm Enterprise Hadoop will now be available as zDoop, the first mainframe-compatible...

Can MediaTek Bring The Cortex-A72 To Market In The Fall?

MediaTek became the first chipmaker to publicly demo a SoC based on ARM’s latest Cortex-A72 CPU core, but the company’s upcoming chip still relies on the old 28nm manufacturing process. We had a chance to see the upcoming MT8173 in action at the Mobile World Congress a couple of weeks ago. The next step is to bring the new Cortex-A72 core to a new node and into mobiles. This is what MediaTek is planning to do by the end of the year. Cortex-A72 smartphone parts coming in Q4 It should be noted...

Will Microsoft Dump It’s XBOX Division?

Microsoft’s Xbox division is in a much healthier state today than it was a year ago. It’s had a tough time of it; forced to reinvent itself in an excruciating, public way as the original design philosophy and marketing message for the Xbox One transpired to be about as popular as breaking wind in a crowded lift, resulting in executive reshuffles and a tricky refocus of the variety that would ordinarily be carried out pre-launch and behind closed doors. Even now, Xbox One remains lumbered...

Target Settles Security Breach For A Meager 10M

Target is reportedly close to paying out $10m to settle a class-action case that was filed after it was hacked and stripped of tens of millions of peoples’ details. Target was smacked by hackers in 2013 in a massive cyber-thwack on its stores and servers that put some 70 million people’s personal information in harm’s way. The hack has had massive repercussions. People are losing faith in industry and its ability to store their personal data, and the Target incident is a very good...

Will nVidia’s Pascal Make It To Market In 2016?

Pascal is Nvidia’s next generation architecture and it is coming after Maxwell of course. The company says it will launch next year, but details are still sketchy. According Nvidia CEO Jen Hsun Huang, it is coming with Mixed Precision and this is the new architecture that will succeed Maxwell. Nvidia claims that the new GPU core has its own architectural benefits. 3D memory or High Bandwidth Memory (HBM), is a big thing and Jen Hsun Huang claims 32GB is possible with the new architecture, compared...
