The traditional architectural and material assumptions with regard to how integrated circuits are fabricated have been challenged in recent years and the semiconductor industry is looking for new solutions. Power and thermal issues add to this apparent crisis in the semiconductor industry.

One of the most important problems is the so-called interconnect bottleneck, that is the tendency for data traffic jams to appear both on-chip and chip-to-chip. The interconnect bottleneck is emerging well before Moore's Law completely runs out of steam, but reappears in differing forms in some of the new architectures designed to make chip scaling easier.

The obvious solution is to deploy fiber optics; which is usually the way to go whenever and wherever there is a bandwidth problem. But fiber optic solutions to on-chip and chip-to-chip interconnection is something that will be hard to develop for commercial chip products. Producing photonic devices that are small enough and inexpensive enough to be used at the chip level is an immensely difficult requirement.

In this report, we analyze the latest developments in optical interconnection at the chip level and the progress in this area that is being made by important research teams throughout the world. Both R&D and commercial development are discussed.

Agile has finally jumped the technology shark, expanding outside the software world. Enterprises are now increasingly adopting Agile practices across their organizations in order to successfully navigate the disruptive waters that threaten to drown them. In our quest for establishing change as a core competency in our organizations, this business-centric notion of Agile is an essential component of Agile Digital Transformation. In the years since the publication of the Agile Manifesto, the conn...

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
"We're developing a software that is based on the cloud environment and we are providing those services to corporations and the general public," explained Seungmin Kim, CEO/CTO of SM Systems Inc., in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
