CALIENT UNVEILS LIGHTCONNECT FABRIC MANAGER
April 01, 2015
CALIENT Technologies, Inc. has unveiled its LightConnect Fabric Manager interconnect orchestration software for the S-Series family of Optical Circuit Switches (OCS). LightConnect was developed to enable new virtual Pod (V- Pod)-based data centers by facilitating the orchestration of an OCS-based interconnect fabric for intra-data center connectivity allowing compute and storage resources to be shared between physical Pods in data centers. Pod-based data centers, as popularized by Google, Facebook, Amazon and others, are built using an easily replicated, packaged pod architecture including compute, storage and networking functionality. Pods are largely popular due to the practicalities of scaling in very large data centers where growth requires that compute resources can be brought online in a modular fashion, while the Pod also simplifies maintenance activities.

'Machine' unflattering portrait of Jobs
March 28, 2015
LOS ANGELES March 15 (RTRS): Hot on the heels of his riveting Scientology takedown 'Going Clear' the ever-prolific Alex Gibney calls the much farther-reaching cult of Apple into question with 'Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine' a coolly absorbing deeply unflattering portrait of the late Silicon Valley entrepreneur that expands not altogether convincingly into a meditation on our collective over-reliance on our favorite handheld gadgets. Once more synthesizing research and reportage into a cinematic essay that makes up in calm analysis what it lacks in fresh revelations Gibney duly acknowledges Jobs's artistry innovation and technological showmanship while making plain just how 'ruthless deceitful and cruel' the man could be. By turns searching and scorching and more than willing to speak ill of the dead the CNN-produced item should play on screens big and small whetting appetites for Universal's forthcoming Jobs biopic in the process. Freeing himself from any obligation to deliver a blow-by-blow summary Gibney offers a more conceptual and critical assessment of his subject's legacy than did Walter Isaacson's biography which was published less than a month after Jobs's death in October 2011. That's the moment where Gibney begins his voiceover setting a ruminative yet skeptical tone as he considers the astonishing outpouring of grief from millions of Apple consumers worldwide (#iSad was a popular hashtag) the depth of their response underscoring the profoundly personal bond that can develop between a human being and a beautiful lump of metal.
