Edge computing

Edge computing & the exponential growth in data

Edge computing is a distributed computing architecture, key for those applications that need a really low latency, such as: self-driving cars, real-time image recognition or Augmented Reality (AR). This new paradigm originates in Content Distribution Networks (CDNs), created in the late 1990s to place content closer to end users as the Internet continued to grow

SHA-1 cryptographic algorithm’s end of useful life

SHA-1 cryptographic algorithm’s end of useful life

SHA-1 cryptographic algorithm has reached its end of useful life, after 27 years since its publication. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recommends replacing it for newer, more secure algorithms like SHA-2 and SHA-3. It aims for the SHA-1 hash function to be completely phased out by the end of 2030. SHA-1 cryptographic

Most powerful supercomputers ranking

The 500 most powerful supercomputers use Linux

The world’s most powerful supercomputers use Linux. A supercomputer is a device whose computing capabilities are by far higher than those of common computers. The most powerful supercomputer nowadays exceeds 1,100 Petaflops (PFlops). This is a performance no personal device can achieve. Besides, it is worth mentioning that Linux has dominated the list of the

The effect of data gravity and the cloud
