Something Cool! (AMD + Tyan content)

One of the things I do in my spare time is develop rendering systems for a client in another country.  The cool thing about this is that I’m able to use cutting-edge AMD processors and platforms from Tyan and nVidia in order to accomplish these goals.

I just found out that one of my rendering systems was used to process the following Coca-Cola commercial for the 2008 Summer Olympics!!!  There is a little special trick to this system, however, that warrants a closer look. [click to continue…]

Search Term Wednesday – July 30th Edition

by Dave Graham on July 30, 2008


So, it’s been awhile since we last did one of these posts.  To that end, let’s dive in and see what people are looking for these days.

Search Term(s):  EMC CX4, Clariion CX4, EMC Clariion CX4

No suprises here, but then again, I can’t talk about the CX4 just yet.  Suffice it to say, I’ll be prepping a few auto-posts on the CX4 (and another product that may be announced during the same timefram) to give you a high level overview of such.  There IS a post out there @ Block and Files that is somewhat correct but….somewhat off. ;)  You’ll get the “truth” on Monday.

An exciting month @ EMC!

by Dave Graham on July 12, 2008


Obviously I’ve been missing in action for several weeks, but I promise you, it was for good reason(s).  There was the end of fiscal Q2, 2008 here at EMC, subsequent re-assignment of territories, and *drumroll please* VMWare Certified Professional training class.  That last item is personally one of the greatest things that I’ve had to deal with in the months at EMC and I’m looking forward to laying it all out for you in the coming weeks.

In the near term, however, there are two REALLY exciting things coming up in the next week or two. At this point, you’ve heard the rumours (undoubtably about “new” product coming) and I just want to say that, given my early look at these offerings, SMB will be MIGHTILY impressed with at least one of them. ;)  Not to slight the second announcement at all, but this first announcement is specifically targeted at one of the largest gaps in SMB product that EMC offers today (hint:  think about multi-protocol on the cheap).  I’ll reveal more (probably next week or so) but for now, I’m excited.
