Low-Latency Media + High-Bandwidth CPUs = A Match Made in Heaven

A frequently asked question by database administrators is: Why is storage technology so slow to keep up with processor advances? The most recent multi-core CPUs can pump out data faster than most storage options available today can read or write,  creating a performance bottleneck. In parallel with Moore’s Law, CPU performance has consistently improved over the years. This has been the case, however, with storage latency, making drives the weak link that degrades the performance of the entire system. CPU cycles are wasted as processors are stuck waiting for storage…

Coronavirus: How to stay up-to-date

Keeping up with the deadly coronavirus has become easier with an online dashboard that keeps you up-to-date with all the latest news. The Center for Systems Science and Engineering has built a tool data from the World Health Organisation, as well as the centers for disease control in the US, China and Europe. It shows all coronavirus confirmed, suspected and recovered patients, and deaths. Coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan, China, has killed 41 people and infected almost 1,000 so far. Cases have been confirmed in the US and Europe, with the…
