In this episode, we talk about non-x86 architecture in the datacenter.
Just the Tip
- Paden’s Fable reminds you to full-disk encrypt your portable devices wherever/whenever possible and make sure your device’s runtime is also password-protected.
- Also don’t just hit the power button to turn your laptop off probably.
Starts at 19m11s.
I was drinking water. Paden was drinking water. Jthan was drinking water.
- Alternative Hardware Architectures in the Datacenter
- A big discussion point about e.g. ARM is the power (as in, electricity) consumption.
- We talk about RISC, MIPS (which probably already exists in your datacenter in some iteration), and ARM a LOT.
- ARM is not end-all, be-all. Reduced electricity consumption, sure, but its performance is inferior.
- Jthan thinks ARM would be good for firewall appliances, but… we have MIPS for that. ARM is overkill for a network appliance.
- I also mention FPGA, which is analogous to what RISC was originally created for.
- We also mention POWER/PPC.
- Jthan mentions Graviton and Graviton Challenge.
In this segment, Jthan shares with you a little slice of life. The title is a reference to this video. (2m16s in)
Starts at 55m08s.
Jthan rants about a 2-hour T-Mobile sales call. (He called them.)
- If you’re unfamiliar with the All Your Base Are Belong to Us meme, you are in for a TREAT.
- Jthan, the M1 absolutely has a GPU. An octocore one at that.
- If you’re unfamiliar, the cold boot attack.
