New Google Glass Reaches Enterprise

E-mail Print PDF

According to the Wall Street Journal and 9to5Google Google quietly released a new version of the Google Glass wearable-- an "Enterprise Edition" (aka "EE") designed for, well, enterprise.

Google GlassesAs the news sources put it, the updated Glass has a tougher design to withstand any drops and bumps met on the workplace. The prism display is larger and more adjustable and, depending on who you ask, the device features either a button-and-hinge system for attachment to different glasses or "robust" hinges allowing wearers to fold it like a regular pair of glasses.

9to5Google describes the device as being "better fit in a factory or a hospital than on a runway… with a focus on function over fashion."

Further details include updated internals, including an Intel Atom processor, "moderately improved" battery life, wireless connectivity improvements and better heat management.

Niara, Cloudera Team Up in Big Data Security

E-mail Print PDF

Security vendor Niara forms a partnership with big data platform provider Cloudera in the adding of the Niara Security Intelligence solution to the Hadoop-based Cloudera Enterprise data management platform.

Cloud analyticsIn addition Niara Security Intelligence is tested and validated through the Cloudera Certified Technology Program.

“Today, it’s the threats that have gotten through traditional defenses that grab the headlines and are the hardest to find. Cloudera Enterprise is the ideal platform on which to build a solution that provides big data security analytics,” Niara says. “By aggregating and managing the massive depth and breadth of security data required to drive sophisticated behavioral analytics, Niara not only unearths these attacks but accelerates the investigation and response as well.”

Juniper Research: IoT Devices to Reach 38bn in 2020

E-mail Print PDF

The number of Internet of Things (IoT) connected devices is set to spike in the near future, Juniper Research reports-- from 13.4 billion in 2015 to 38.5bn in 2020, an increase of over 285%.

IoTDriving such growth are industrial and public services sectors, such as retail, agriculture, smart buildings and smart grid applications, thanks to a "much stronger business case."

However the analyst warns the IoT represents a "huge challenge"-- one needs to know what information to gather, as well as how to integrate said information into back office systems. After all, mere connections only produce data, which only becomes information once it is gathered, analysed and understood through an analytics back-end.

How to Access 32 Computers From 1 Workstation

E-mail Print PDF

Gefen announces the 4x1 DVI KVM Multiview Switcher (EXT-DVIK-MV-41)-- a next generation KVM switching solution allowing the control of 4 computers from a dual-display workstation.

Gefen MultivewOperators can observe data from up to 4 computers on one display, with the 2nd display switching to any image in need of closer attention. Meanwhile a cascading ability allows expansion to up to 8 switchers accessing up to 32 computers, all with comprehensive control from a single keyboard and mouse.

Customers can independently route 2 front panel USB and bi-directional audio ports (for microphone and headphones/speakers) from any of the computers. Preset and customisable window configurations are readily available, including single screen, split screen, picture-in-picture and 4 windows on the same display, while video outputs can be scaled and positioned for precise video alignment.

How to Cool Datacentres with Datacentre Heat

E-mail Print PDF

IBM researchers plan to use an unlikely material to cool datacentres-- a dessicant similar to silica gel packs found in shoe boxes converting waste heat into cool air, thus making for self-cooling datacentres.

DatacentreThrough a project named THRIVE the researchers are working on a waste heat-powered heat pump. Traditional heat pumps (such as those in refrigerators or AC units) draw warmth from the surroundings to vaporise a refrigerant in an evaporator. The vapor rises into an electrically-powered compressor before it turns into liquid and runs pack into the evaporator.

The THRIVE heat pump, on the other hand, features an "absorption heat exchanger" running on heat at temperatures from 60°C, not electricity. The heat exchanger works like a radiator, pulling vapour and compressing it using fins filled with the aforementioned silica gel desiccant. The process uses less electricity than conventional heat pumps (leading to higher cooling or heat output in relation to wattage used), and uses pure water instead of potentially harmful refrigerant as a coolant.
