What is Hyperscale Computing?
Thumb hyperscaler

The term ‘Hyperscale Computing', is used to describe the process of efficiently scaling up distributed computing environments, from a few servers to thousands of them, and the provisioning and facilities required in order for this task to be completed. 

In comparison to conventional computing, the structural design of hyperscale computing can be quite different. Conventional computing environments usually employ high-grade constructs, for example, the ones found in blade systems. These constructs are usually abandoned in Hyperscale computing, in place of a more stripped-down...

Thumb spectre meltdown

The procedure of spotting and fixing CPUs after Spectre and Meltdown has been one extensive discussion that microprocessor experts are yet to agree on. It requires a lot more research and talks among experts to come up with the ultimate solution. Before exploring the suggested solutions so far, it is essential to understand what happens for a CPU to be considered as having Spectre and Meltdown. 

Meltdown and Spectre are flaws that cause attacks that exploit the speculative execution feature of microprocessors where the processor assumes which instruction branch to take and execute....
