Traditional storage has become the weak link in the data center. From the perspective of input/output-operations-persecond (IOPS), disk-based storage hasn't kept pace with compute or network IOPS - putting the entire data center stack out of balance. This will remain true until IT shifts its storage technology from...
Although some global payment organizations apparently have failed to meet the Bank of India's October 15 deadline for storing all Indians' payment data domestically, the nation's central bank reportedly has ruled out extending the deadline and is demanding a status report.
Security is a journey not a destination. What's been deployed today may be found

2008, which were once trusted building blocks for critical applications, are now
potential liabilities as time goes on and maintenance comes to an end and...
Deep learning opens up new worlds of possibility in AI, enabled by advances in computational capacity, the explosion in data, and the advent of deep neural networks. But data is evolving quickly and legacy storage systems are not keeping up.

While some payment companies are strongly protesting the Reserve Bank of India's mandate that they store all data locally by October 15, portraying compliance as costly and impractical, others support the move as a way to ensure data is protected.
In a reversal, chipmaker AMD is now warning that its chips are susceptible to the speculative execution flaws in microprocessors known as Spectre, but not to the Meltdown. Separately, Intel has confirmed that its firmware updates have led to stability problems for older Broadwell and Haswell processors.
Following the alert over Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, the U.K. Information Commissioner's Office is warning that failures to patch today could be punished with fines under GDPR once enforcement of the data protection law begins later this year.
