Association™, a global non-profit organization focused on developing
standards that help speed time to market for products that involve
multicore implementations, announced today that Xilinx,
Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) has joined the consortium as an executive board
"Xilinx has been a semiconductor industry leader at the forefront of
technology for over 25 years, and we look forward to the contributions
they’ll make in the development of our next generation standards,” said
Multicore Association President, Markus Levy. “Xilinx’s involvement with
the Multicore Association, especially focused on our new Software-Hardware
Interface for Multi-Many Core (SHIM) standard and MCAPI standard,
will provide very well-rounded guidance and a practical perspective on
designing with multicore technology."
“Xilinx strongly supports the Multicore Association and its mission to
guide the long-term development of open standards for multicore and
manycore solutions,” said Tomas Evensen, Chief Scientist Embedded
Software at Xilinx. “Our history is marked by a commitment to innovation
and delivering customer value, with dedication to open standards and a
broad ecosystem that furthers industry-wide collaboration.”
The Multicore Association is working to enable the widespread adoption
of multicore processor-based implementations, such as the Xilinx®
Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoCs, by setting standards for how systems
will be utilized and programmed. As a semiconductor design innovator,
Xilinx will help the Multicore Association drive standards for deploying
multicore solutions in high performance embedded systems.
The Multicore Association provides three levels of membership,
with executive board, working group, and university members. The
executive board helps determine the overall direction of the
Working group members are eligible to work on any of the working groups.
University members may participate in any of the Multicore Association’s
ongoing development work.

Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, will show how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningfu...

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene.
In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
