Saving lives one eCall at a time

With more and more vehicles on the road comes a greater potential for accidents. Technology designed for in-vehicle safety (i.e. back-up cameras, crash avoidance systems) offers significant preventative measures but accidents do – and will – still happen. That’s where technology such as eCall (emergency call) comes on ...

 

Intel shows off Rack Scale Architecture and Rack Disaggregation plans

Intel is re-imagining what servers are, and the result looks nothing like what you think of as a server. The term for it is Rack Scale Architecture (RSA) or Rack Disaggregation (RD), and it does just what the name implies.Current servers be they rack or pedestal have changed ...
