by Angela Guess According to a recent press release, ?NVIDIA today introduced TITAN V, the world?s most powerful GPU for the PC, driven by the world?s most advanced GPU architecture, NVIDIA Volta. Announced by NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang at the annual NIPS conference, TITAN V excels at computational processing for scientific simulation. Its [?]
Recently, I visited a few conferences and I noticed a somewhat hidden theme. While a lot of attention was being paid to moving to a (hybrid) cloud-based architecture and what you need for that (such as cloud management platforms), a few presentations showed an interesting overall development that everybody acknowledges but that does not get a lot of close attention: the enormous growth of the amount of digital data stored in the world.
Data is clearly not what it used to be! Organizations of all types are finding new uses for data as part of their digital transformations. Examples abound in every industry, from jet engines to grocery stores, for data becoming key to competitive advantage. I call this new data because it is very different from the financial and ERP data that we are most familiar with. That old data was mostly transactional, and privately captured from internal sources, which drove the client/server revolution.
About a decade ago almost all data centers were built on a traditional three- (or sometimes more) tier architectures that used the spanning tree protocol (STP). That prevented routing loops but also deactivated all the backup links, which accounted for almost half the ports in large environments. This caused organizations to significantly overspend on their networks.
We're not all going to the public cloud overnight. That?s why the hybrid cloud is a critical concept for enterprises. The idea of a hybrid cloud is that you keep your server farm and massive investment in VMware, Oracle, and whatever else you bought over the last 20 years or so and relocate some workloads to the public cloud. You?ll also create a private cloud with many of the same features of a public cloud. Meanwhile, you may have some apps that aren't going to make it to either a private cloud or public cloud.
It?s easy to get caught up in the technology of cloud computing. We?ll certainly see that occur at the annual AWS Re:Invent show this week, where hundreds of providers will show off new and shiny technology.
Microsoft?s Event Grid is an important addition to Microsoft?s serverless options, providing the back end needed to build distributed applications that can work at scale, with minimal management and orchestration. It brings to Microsoft?s serverless tools an event routing fabric that simplifies subscribing to events raised by other Azure services and by external sources.

In bacteria, the transcription of DNA into mRNA by RNA polymerase is coupled to the translation of that mRNA into protein by the ribosome. How this coupling is achieved has been unclear. Kohler et al. show that RNA polymerase and the ribosome from Escherichia coli can form a so-called expressome complex. Electron microscopy structural analysis, together with functional experiments, revealed details of the coupled complex. The coupling could allow translation to prevent transcriptional pausing, backtracking, and termination.
