Jensen Huang is back with another NVIDIA GTC keynote, launching the next-generation Hopper GPU architecture and a raft of new products for cloud, HPC, datacenter, automotive, and beyond. We discuss this story and more on this week’s Rundown.
SiFive has raised $175 million in a series F funding round, bringing company valuation to $2.5 billion and setting it up for an IPO. SiFive is a pioneer in the world of RISC-V computing, an emerging open source hardware competitor for ARM. So far it’s been more of a theoretical challenger, but will this investment put RISC-V on the map?
Okta Inc., the San Fransisco bay area based company known for their authenticator applications has reportedly been hacked. The hack seems to have even affected many of its customers, though the severity of the attack is still unclear. How could this affect how Okta thinks about evolving their security moving forward?
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has not resulted in the cyber war we all expected, but the Biden administration just warned that the threat is looming. A recent CISA bulletin (along with an annoucement at the White House) warns that Russia is about to launch a massive attack against US and allied interests in retaliation for the sanctions placed on the country. How serious is the threat of cyber war with Russia?
VAST Data gave the Storage Field Day delegates a sneak peek at their new hyperscale-inspired scale-out storage platform, code-name Ceres. It leverages so-called ruler SSDs from Solidigm, Bluefield connectivity from NVIDIA’s Mellanox, and a chassis from AIC to build a true next-generation platform. Will VAST Data launch beyond the stratosphere with Ceres?
Data security and protection company Datto looks to be going private, just a year and a half after their IPO. The small company isn’t as high-profile as competitors like Acronis and Veeam but remains popular with its customers. But the stock has not performed as well as expected, and the company could be looking for private equity money. Is a takeover or buyout by a major player imminent?
Jensen Huang is back with another NVIDIA GTC keynote, launching the next-generation Hopper GPU architecture and a raft of new products for cloud, HPC, datacenter, automotive, and beyond. The keynote was loaded with buzzword-filled demos, including a long segment on the omniverse, autonomous driving, and digital twins, and even some talk of quantum computing. But it was the Hopper GPU architecture that stole the attention, delivering over 3x the performance of Ampere while sucking twice the power. What should we make of GTC Spring 2022?
