Summit Forum auf der Computex Taipei 2014 geht zu Ende

Das Summit Forum der Computex Taipei 2014 wurde vom taiwanesischen Außenhandelsbüro organisiert und dem Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) ausgerichtet. Es fand im Rahmen der 2014-Auflage der jährlichen Computex Taipei Expo statt, eine international beachtete Fachmesse für Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologie (ICT). Am Summit Forum beteiligten sich Branchengrößen wie Stan Shih, der Chairman von Acer Chairman, Tsai Ming-kai, der Chairman von Mediatek, Simon Segars, CEO von ARM Holdings und Shane Owenby, APAC Managing Director von Amazon Web Services. Die vier Führungspersönlichkeiten waren eingeladen, ihre Einsichten zum Internet der Dinge (Internet of Things, IoT) und Cloud-Services zu erörtern und sich zum Thema: „Integration von Hardware und Software für ein intelligentes Internet der Dinge“ zu äußern, um den Besuchern aus allen Teilen der Welt ein Bild der neuesten Entwicklungen der Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologie aus einer globalen Perspektive zu vermitteln.

In seinem Vortrag stellte TAITRA-Generalsekretär Huang Wen-jung fest, dass die vielen bahnbrechenden Neuerungen, die mobile Computer und Cloud-Technologien während der vergangenen Jahre ausgelöst haben, eine brandneue Phase für die globale ITC-Branche einläuteten. In diesem Zusammenhang erklärten sogar die internationale Marktforschungsgesellschaft McKinsey und US-Präsident Barack Obama, dass mobile Computertechnologien und Cloud-Systeme als die Grundlage des sogenannten „Internet der Dinge“ im Begriff seien, die Lebensweisen der Menschheit radikal zu verändern.

Auf der Veranstaltung erklärte Stan Shih, wie Acer seine Erfahrung in der Bereitstellung von Hardware und Softwarediensten zur beschleunigten Einführung seines BYOC-Service („Build Your Own Cloud“) nutzte, um Acer als einen ausgereiften Anbieter von „Hardware+ Software + Services“ zu etablieren. Darüber hinaus erklärte er wie Acer beabsichtigt, mit seinen Zulieferern und Vertriebspartnern als Partner zusammenzuarbeiten, um eine neue Wertschöpfungskette aufzubauen. Shih bat außerdem Tsai Ming-kai von Mediatek für ein Foto auf die Bühne und äußerte seine Zuversicht, dass die zukünftigen Beziehungen zwischen ihren beiden Unternehmen eine bessere IoT-Erfahrung für die Verbraucher schaffen werden.

Tsai betonte die entscheidende Rolle, die Taiwan mit seiner starken Wettbewerbsposition in Bereichen wie der Hardwareherstellung, der Produktentwicklung und dem Servicegeschäft während der vergangenen drei Jahrzehnte in der Entwicklung der globalen ICT-Branche gespielt hat. Während die Welt von Cloud 1.0 auf Cloud 2.0 übergeht, müssen taiwanesische Akteure zusammenarbeiten, um den positiven Kreislauf des Mooreschen Gesetzes aufrechtzuerhalten und den technologischen Fortschritt der Halbleiterbranche weiterzuführen.

Simon Segars ging in seinem Redebeitrag ausführlich auf die Wichtigkeit der Innovation ein. Angefangen mit dem jahrhundertealten Hersteller der ikonischen Jelly Bean erläuterte er, wie die Innovation in den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen, von der Autoindustrie bis hin zur Elektronikbranche, der Schlüssel für den Gewinn von Kunden ist. Am Beispiel der Fernüberwachung von Hunden zuhause sprach Segar außerdem über verschiedene IoT-Anwendungen und Möglichkeiten für deren Kommerzialisierung.

Laut Shane Owenby liegt der Schlüssel für den spektakulären Erfolg, den Amazon Web Services (AWS) in nur fünf Jahren erzielte, in der Größenordnung. Dank seiner Größenordnung war AWS in der Lage, seinen Kunden gewaltige Kapazitäten zu erschwinglichen Preisen zur Verfügung zu stellen. Darüber hinaus erklärte Owenby, wie AWS Privatpersonen, Unternehmen, Behörden, Schulen etc. hochgradig maßgeschneiderte Cloud-Lösungen anbieten kann.

Auf dem Summit Forum untersuchte Simon Chang, der Minister für Wissenschaft und Technologie gemeinsam mit den vier anderen Referenten die Gelegenheiten, die für Taiwan bestehen. Im Hinblick auf die Entstehung des IoT sollten Großunternehmen nach Ansicht von Shih Plattformen einrichten, die jungen Taiwanern helfen, ihre Fähigkeiten zu entwickeln und zu präsentieren. Andererseits unterstrich Tsai, dass sich Unternehmen aus Taiwans Produktketten eingehend überlegen müssen, wie sie ihre Wettbewerbsfähigkeit durch verschiedene Arten von Konsolidierungen steigern könnten. Segars empfahl, dass Taiwan seine Talente im Bereich der Halbleitertechnologie auf den IoT-Sektor ausrichten sollte. Tatsächlich war dies einer der Gründe, die RAM veranlassten, sein CPU-Entwicklungszentrum in Taiwan anzusiedeln. Owenby hingegen forderte Taiwan auf, seine Innovationskapazität weiter zu fördern, um auf globaler Ebene wettbewerbsfähig zu bleiben.

Die vier Referenten sprachen nahezu fünf Stunden auf der Veranstaltung. Sie umrissen nicht nur ein informatives Bild, wie das menschliche Leben in fünf bis zehn Jahren aussehen könnte, sondern gaben auch faszinierende Einblicke in Möglichkeiten, auf welche die globale IT-Branche Cloud-Technologien in ihre Geschäftsstrategien einbinden könnte. Das Summit Forum auf der Computex Taipei 2014 war mit Sicherheit eines der zukunftsrelevantesten Technologieereignisse dieses Jahres.

Every healthy ecosystem is diverse. This is especially true in cloud ecosystems, where portability and interoperability are more important than old enterprise models of proprietary ownership. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Baker, Server Product Manager at Canonical/Ubuntu, will discuss how single vendors used to take the lead in creating and delivering technology, but in a cloud economy, where users want tools of their preference, when and where they need them, it makes no sense.

Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore’s Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g., Hadoop, OpenStack) tends to be significant capital expenses. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mason Katz, CTO and co-founder of StackIQ, to discuss how infrastructure teams should be aware of the capitalization and depreciation model of these expenses to fully understand when and where automation is critical.
Over the last few years the healthcare ecosystem has revolved around innovations in Electronic Health Record (HER) based systems. This evolution has helped us achieve much desired interoperability. Now the focus is shifting to other equally important aspects – scalability and performance. While applying cloud computing environments to the EHR systems, a special consideration needs to be given to the cloud enablement of Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA), i.e., the largest single medical system in the United States.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
