Bandwidth, boredom and cognitive bias are three weak spots that prevent analysts from identifying threats. Here's how to compensate.
For years, service providers have capitalized on the advantages of industry-standard servers for media processing in the cloud.

These industry-standard servers, typically optimized for Intel architecture, offer the versatility to handle diverse visual cloud workloads and the total cost of ownership (TCO) advantages of off-the-shelf Intel-based hardware.Today, we are building on this foundation for media processing in the cloud with new breakthroughs in performance and TCO made possible by the launch of the new Intelreg; Xeonreg; Scalable processors.

The successor to the Intelreg; Xeonreg; processor E5 and E7 families, the Intel Xeon Scalable processors deliver up to 28 cores, significant increases in memory and I/O bandwidth, and built-in accelerators like Intelreg; AVX-512, along with six DDR4 memory channels and 48 PCIe lanes.

These characteristics make Intel Xeon Scalable processors a great choice for accelerating media processing in the cloud such as software-based transcoding and video stitching.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
But even with a Thunderbolt 3 connection, there are still trade-offs to be made.
Enterprises that are embracing a cloud deployment need cost-effective and practical ways to migrate their corporate data into the cloud.

This is sometimes referred to as “hydrating the cloud.” Given the challenge of moving massive enterprise data sets anywhere non-disruptively and accurately, the task can be a lengthy, complicated, and risky process.Not every organization has enough dedicated bandwidth to transfer multi-petabytes without causing performance degradation to the core business, or spare hardware to migrate to the cloud.
In some cases, those organizations in a physically isolated location, or without cost-effective high-speed Internet connections, face an impediment to getting onto a target cloud.

Data must be secured, backed-up, and in the case of production environments, migrated at global enterprise scale without missing a beat.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
As the buzz over the Internet of Things (IoT) ripples across industries, companies from small startups to industry behemoths rush to launch their IoT products.

The dramatic advances in Internet infrastructure, cloud computing, connection bandwidth, and mobile devices over the years have all helped make IoT real.

Given the abundance of the ever evolving computing technologies, there are many choices of computational models and platforms for the design and implementation of an IoT product.Dating back to the 1970s, the actor modelnbsp;didn't gain too much attention until recently. The model revolves around a universal primitive called actor for concurrent and distributed computation.
It provides an idiomatic alternative to the more conventional concurrency model that relies on synchronization of shared mutable state using locks.
In particular, the message-driven style of non-blocking interactions via immutable messages among actors meshes well with contemporary programming approaches on complex distributed platforms.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
The HTTP verb named PATCH can be used for partial updates, i.e., when you would like to update just a few fields of a resource. While you could update a resource “partiallyrdquo; using HTTP PUT, by sending the entire resource with the updated values, that is potentially problematic.

At the very least, you might end up consuming more network bandwidth than necessary.For partial updates, HTTP PATCH is easier and safer, and ASP.NET Web API provides excellent support for HTTP PATCH requests.

This article will discuss how we can use PATCH to perform partial updates when working with RESTful services using Web API.[ Discover the power of Bash on Windows. | The power of PowerShell: PowerShell intro for Windows Server admins • PowerShell intro for Exchange admins • Essential PowerShell scripts for security admins • All about PowerShell providers and modules. | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorldrsquo;s App Dev Report newsletter. ]PATCH vs. PUT The HTTP PATCH method should be used whenever you would like to change or update just a small part of the state of the resource. You should use the PUT method only when you would like to replace the resource in its entirety. Note that PATCH is not a replacement for PUT or POST, but just a way of applying a delta update to a resource representation. Roy Fielding, who authored the REST architectural style and many web standards, said that he created PATCH because “partial PUT is never RESTful.”To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Being a malware researcher means you are always busy with the struggle against mountains of malware and cyberattacks around the world. Over the past decade, the number of daily new malware findings raised up to unimaginable heights: with hundreds of thousands of malware samples per day!
I shoulda patched what now? The ransomware problems reported by The Reg over the past few weeks are enough to make you, er, wanna cry. Yet all that's happened is that known issues with Windows machines – desktop and server – have now come to everyone's attention and the bandwidth out of Microsoft's Windows Update servers has likely increased a bit relative to the previous few weeks.…
Official comments from the Dynamic Spectrum AllianceBrussels, Belgium, 27 June 2017: The Dynamic Spectrum Alliance (DSA) welcomes the European Commissionrsquo;s proposed European Electronic Communications Code (EECC) and has suggested recommendations to ensure the Codersquo;s spectrum provisions extend connectivity for Europersquo;s citizens now and in the future.

The EECC is part of the European Commissionrsquo;s plans for improved connectivity in Europe through Wi-Fi, 5G, and high-speed Gigabit broadband capable of supporting upcoming technologies and bandwidth-hungry applications.... Source: RealWire
  Major developments are happening within the Apple and Cisco partnership as discussed by Susie Wee, VP and CTO of Cisco Devnet in her blog posted on June 5. The partnership started with iOS 10 and included the higher-quality Wi-Fi connections and the ability to extend the prioritization of business-critical apps within enterprise networks.  With the release of iOS 11, announced on June 5, macOS apps can also take advantage of app prioritization on a Cisco Wi-Fi network!So how does this relate to developers you may ask? developer.cisco.com First of all, if you are still not aware of what Fast lane does, check out this demo to understand what higher-quality Wi-Fi connections mean in todayrsquo;s video-savvy world.   Imagine having worked hard to develop an app that uses voice and video, but your network administrator isnrsquo;t aware that your app is business critical and thus bandwidth issues cause poor app performance.  Essentially, your app would be treated like any other streaming video or social media software, and with any congestion or bandwidth issues, the quality of your app is impacted!To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
