Should be easy to win the rights to .tv when you're name-checked in the contract's tech reqs – right, Afilias?
Wednesday, 24 November 2021 10:40

References to Afilias have been spotted in the technical requirements for the contract to run the trendy top-level domain .tv, suggesting the process is in one way or another stacked in the internet registry operator's favor.

If you're having déjà vu, it's because we blew the lid off the exact same thing in the battle over Colombia's .co.

In a story last Thursday , we reported that the tiny island nation of Tuvalu, which owns .tv, has invited companies to bid on the right to sell .tv domains.

Crucially, we revealed the unusual and illogical prerequisites to win this lucrative

When digital transformation is the goal, network renovation isn’t good enough
Thursday, 25 November 2021 19:30

Paid Feature Networks are supposed to make the world smaller. But in many ways, the traditional MPLS-based enterprise network created a galaxy of atomised, walled-off worlds.

This was fine when the applications and data most users needed for their day-to-day work lived inside their organisation’s network – as indeed were all, or nearly all, of the users. If that meant that staff working from home (or just in a smaller, branch office), were stuck with broadband and a VPN, well so be it.

But cloud-based services and applications are a fundamental part of the “digital transformation” that most organisations are

SmartNICs, IPUs, DPUs de-hyped: Why and how cloud giants are offloading work from server CPUs
Thursday, 25 November 2021 08:09

Systems Approach The recent announcements from Intel about Infrastructure Processing Units (IPUs) have prompted us to revisit the topic of how functionality is partitioned in a computing system.

As we noted in an earlier piece, The Accidental SmartNIC , there is at least thirty years’ history of trying to decide how much one should offload from a general purpose CPU to a more specialized NIC, and an equally long tussle between more highly specialized offload engines versus more general-purpose ones.

The IPU represents just the latest entry in a long series of general-purpose offload engines, and we’re now seeing quite
