The Uptime Institute has estimated the gains from eliminating ‘zombie’ servers and implementing a data center management system versus doing nothing.
Despite security and cost concerns, businesses and their IT teams are moving forward on practical deployments of internet of things technologies, according to a survey from IDC. The report reinforces other recent findings about IoT and what IT needs to know.
If you want to play with an ARM-based server, you can now apply to gain access to one online through the Linaro Developer Cloud.
