    Intel buying out AMD rumors

    The whole RISC vs CISC thing is more a misnomer now days. What we think or understand RISC to be as actually at odds with how actual RISC CPUs are today. It's becoming harder and harder to label CPU/architectures as RISC or CISC as all of them push for performance and power efficiency and create instruction sets to accelerate common tasks or ones that would greatly benefit from it.

    Well of course not, because that's just as illogical as the sale ever actually getting approved. Silly ideas get silly answers

    Intel buying out AMD rumors

    They do because any acquisition of business assets and operations being conducted in the UE have to be approved by the EU, the EU can also deny access in to the EU market if by some magic you could get around that. Losing over half your market isn't exactly a good business option to buy out a competing company just to have some nice tech they have. And even then shareholders of either company could block the sale, there are so many different ways the sale could (would) be blocked it's just never going to happen. Buying out RTG and making it a subsidiary of Intel with agreement of supply to AMD as part of the sale is the only likely, however small that is, buyout that could happen.
  4. For MS clusters, honestly not really.
  5. The Ubiquiti US-16-XG-US @Windows7ge mentioned is probably the best mixed port type many 10Gbps port switch in the lower price range though I think it maybe be over what you are wanting to spend.

    Nvidia Attempting to Censor Critical Reviews?

    I've hardly ever used TV guides, proper TV schedule helps with that. I just often don't need/want to watch a new Youtube video as soon as it comes out, I just check the ones I care about when I feel like it and if there is a new video I watch it if not then I don't.
  7. Currently single virtual host but I still have a need for multiple VLANs for different VMs etc. Also have a wireless VLAN, one for iLO/IPMI etc. Just generally setup my network how I would for a corp network.
  8. Virtual host with multiple VLANs which means, or typically, multiple subnets so routing is required to go between those VLANs/subnets. My home network has something like 12 VLANs and 14 subnets.
  9. Function, like it can switch 10Gbps fine but if you use L3 routing it goes through the very weak CPU and it can't route at 10Gbps. Stuff like that, may not be the case but that's the stuff I test for.
  10. https://mikrotik.com/product/crs305_1g_4s_in On paper sounds awesome, would like to actually try it though. Most of these cheap switches, like the Ubnt US16-XG, have strings attached for quirks to them.
  11. Yep can do, most hypervisors can do all the things others can they just call them different names but all work the same.

    Because if I actually like your videos and want to watch them I will remember you and will look for them when I want to, you know just like how I remember the TV shows I like and when they are on. Shock horror people have memories and can prioritize their time, rare thing now days I guess lol.
  13. You don't need to, it's just a diagram showing the general structure. It wouldn't convey the correct information if it only had a single virtual machine per server shown because then you might think you can only have one per server. You can run multiple applications per VM, a VM is no different to your desktop computer. It's just a virtual instance of the same thing. Generally you do not want to install multiple applications on a single OS because that is making the failure domain larger, more things break if it fails or you need to reboot it. Security wise you should not also run a web server exposed to the internet and also host secure files on that same server OS. On smaller scales it's harder to see the benefits or the point but in a example of a service you need to deliver to your users that needs 4 web servers, 4 application processing servers and a database cluster that is where things make more logical sense. You want/need multiple web servers so the service does not go down if one were to fail and you also need more than one to handle the load of many users, the same is true of the application processing servers. The database cluster is application clustering aware but there is still two OS's involved. Ideally you would have 6 total servers here, 4 servers running 8 virtual machines (1 web server and 1 application processing server each) and 2 servers for the database cluster (could be virtual machines or physical OS install). Not on a Type 1 bare metal hypervisor. It's very rare to see more than 1% performance loss due to virtual machine overhead. You can get resource contention from multiple virtual machines running on a single server but you aren't losing performance due to virtual machines. Very rarely is a server utilized fully by a single OS or application, you can have 15-30 virtual machines running on a single server and still only average 50% CPU utilization.
