3 Big data security analytics techniques

One of the first Itanium systems to arrive in quarter three of this year will be a four-way own-brand system codenamed Lion, The Register can reveal. The system, which appears on internal Intel roadmaps we saw last week, will use the firm's own chipset, which supports, like many of the other server boards it is introducing, double data rate (DDR) memory using ServerWorks (formerly Reliance) chipsets. And, rather like many of the server introductions for the IA-32 platform that Intel is making this year, it is likely that a chassis will also be offered to selected customers, making this a generic Itanium box, rather than those made by the firm's PC customers which we saw at the Intel Developer Forum in February. Intel also has an aggressive plan to introduce software support, not just for its IA-64 platform but for the new motherboards that we revealed last week. According to a solution competency centre roadmap we saw, between Q2 of this year and Q2 of 2001, Intel will implement a number of software ports for its entire server platform. These will cover messaging, e-commerce infrastructure, Web servers, databases, clustering technologies and other implementations. Messaging In Q2 2000, there will be support for Exchange for NT on Koa, and Exchange for Windows 2000 on Koa. Exchange for NT and Windows 2000 for the Glen Echo board will arrive in Q3, while Q4 will see Exchange for NT APAC. The Itanium Lion effort will start in Q1 and Q2 of 2001, with the porting of Exchange for Windows 64. E-Commerce SiteServer for NT on the Koa platform will arrive in Q2, while the Windows 2000 version will arrive in Q3/Q4. Again, this will be ported for Win64 on Lion in Q1/Q2 2001. Web Servers Apache for Linux on Koa arrives in Q2, while MS IIs for Windows 2000 and Apache on Glen Echo arrive in Q3. These will be replicated in Q2 of 2001. Databases In Q2, Koa will support MS SQL for NT, while in Q3 that will arrive for Koa, as well as Oracle 8i applications for Glen Echo. In Q4 2000, we will see OPS for Windows 2000 on the Saber-R (eight way) platform, as well as MSCS for Windows 2000 DC. MCCS for Windows 64 on Lion will arrive in Q1/Q2 2000. Clustering Technology In Q3, there will be support for MSCS for Windows 2000 on the Koa platform, and support for MS WLBS for Windows 2000 and the Glen Echo board. MSCS will arrive for Lion again Q1/Q2 of next year. Other Software Firewall for NT will be implemented on the Lancewood platform in Q2/Q3 this year, and Caching Proxy for Koa in Q4. As well as these implementations, Intel is telling its customers there will be a wide range of ease of use, tuning, sizing, and Web development packages available on its server board platforms. ® Related Stories Leak!
