          • A Typical Servers Sales Call With Curvature

            When I get calls about servers, I first start off by gaining an understanding of the customer’s infrastructure and what OEM’s they standardize on. We want to get as much information as we can to make sure we can provide the customer with the most cost-effective solution. 1. Has your company standardized on OEM? 2. What type of applications will you be running and how many? 3. What type of processors do you need, and how many? 4. Will this server be used for virtualization? 5. What type of switch ports do you need to support the server, and how many? 6. Is CPU speed or core count more important? Or both? 7. About manageability—do you need remote access? 8. What kind of connectivity will you need: 1GbE, 10GbE, 10B SFP+ or FC? 9. How much memory do you need? 10. How much power do you really need? The server you select depends entirely on the applications you will be running, and these applications tend to be very robust. If you don’t have the correct hardware to support the application, you can experience latency, errors, and even worse: downtime. Always refer to each application’s OEM for the hardware requirements that you may need. For companies with many applications (i.e., file, email, CRM and database), you will need a stronger tower, rack, or blade server. When it comes to processors, consider the application you are using. In most cases, the application will require a particular type of processor, core, and speed. The last thing you want is to buy a processor that is too powerful—you don’t want to spend money on something you don’t need. Worse yet, you don’t want to get a processor that doesn’t provide a balanced server because it will give you a bottleneck instead. Additionally, customers will sometimes order too many servers only to find that they don’t have enough ports on their switch to plug it into. Remember: do an empty port count in your existing network to see if you need to buy another switch to support your new deployment of servers. As far as memory goes, more is better. It will cost initially, but that’s better than taking down your network to install and max out the memory on your server when you could have gotten it done on the initial deployment! It’s best to max out your server with memory to avoid the hassle of taking down your network. Finally, calculate how much power you will need for your server so you can get the adequate power supply. Power consumption—or conservation rather—hot topic in any environment. Don’t ignore the fact that your server may draw a lot of power depending on the components you install. Review the power draw per component, and pick based on the needs of your environment. More information here: https://goo.gl/FOZpIz

            • Grady Booch: Enjoy the beauty of what you’re doing but also take responsibility!

              https://www.singularityweblog.com/grady-booch-enjoy-the-beauty-of-what-youre-doing-but-also-take-responsibility/ Grady Booch is an IBM fellow, best-selling author, software engineer, geek, philosopher, storyteller, entrepreneur and former US air-force serviceman, who used to work on the secret space shuttle military program. If his bio is not enough to make you watch the interview on its own, let me just add that this was one of the most frank and fun conversations that I have had so far on Singularity 1 on 1. So don’t waste any more time reading but hit the play button and watch the interview! During our 50 min conversation with Grady Booch we cover a variety of interesting topics such as: the moral and social implications of software engineering; his upcoming documentary on Computing the Human Experience; the 4 intellectuals who had the greatest impact on him; whether IBM is trying to create an AI or not; the coolest future apps for Watson and whether the NSA is interested; if intelligence is computable or not; the Penrose-Hameroff Orch OR theory of consciousness; determinism, free will and computability; Marvin Minsky and Noam Chomsky‘s claim that we are not making any progress in general artificial intelligence; Grady’s take on the technological singularity and the Turing Test… My favorite quotes that I will take away from this fun interview with Grady Booch are: “Enjoy the beauty in what you are doing but also take and own responsibility!” and “There is a magical world behind that curtain. Open it up! You will be amazed by the things you’ll see. […] Join us on that journey!”
