Bimodal IT, SDN & IoT: 5 paramount trends hitting data centres in 2016



  • Emerson said that these edge facilities, or neighbourhood data centres, will support the larger data centres providing low-latency content and applications to users or data processing and logic for IoT networks.
  • Reams of data will pour into data centres as IoT becomes more widely adopted, but data will not be the only changing factor impacting the industry.
  • To answer this, data centres will need to find a common language in which devices can interact.
  • According to Emerson, cloud could get more complex as data centre servers are still running below their optimum capacity.
  • The company said the solution will enable new levels of visibility, control and automation by creating interconnectivity across data centre systems.

Apple-ARM Deal Bonkers



  • ARM’s great value to Apple, and to the world, is that it proliferates a microprocessor architecture around the globe which means that Apple’s products can work with everyone else’s products and everyone else’s products can work with everybody else’s products.
  • If Apple bought ARM everyone else would stop using ARM because no one wants to see a repeat of the Intel situation in which one company owned a dominant architecture.
  • If ARM were threatened by takeover Apple might take a blocking stake, but ARM has become too valuable as a trusted supplier of a global architecture ever to be owned by a systems house or a semiconductor company which might set out to eliminate or compete with ARM’s licensees.
  • The ARM model suits the world and the world won’t see it broken.
