(Bloomberg) — Qualcomm Inc., trying to break Intel Corp.'s lucrative stranglehold on server chips, said it began selling a new processor that will outperform its rivals and has support from some of the industry's biggest buyers of the technology.
The Centriq 2400 processor, which uses ARM Holdings technology, is now on sale, Qualcomm said Wednesday at an event in San Jose, California. The chips, which are manufactured by Samsung Electronics Co., offer better results than an Intel Xeon Platinum 8180 processor, based on energy efficiency and cost, Qualcomm said.
The world's biggest maker of chips for phones is kicking off the public phase of its attempt to get into new markets just as it has become the target of what would be the largest technology takeover ever. Broadcom Ltd. is offering to buy it for about $105 billion in a proposal that Qualcomm views as a low-ball bid, which may precipitate a lengthy proxy battle demanding attention from the company's management.
Qualcomm's server chip push, led by former Intel executive Anand Chandrasekher, is part of Chief Executive Officer Steve Mollenkopf's attempt to diversify the company' sources of revenue. He's also targeting personal computers and is in the middle of trying to close a more than $40 billion acquisition of NXP Semiconductors NV, to kick-start Qualcomm's move into the growing market for chips used in cars.

PORTLAND – Infomart Data Centers, a national wholesale data center provider, announces today that its Portland data center has achieved LEED Platinum® certification, the highest rating offered by the U.S. Green Building Council® (USGBC). Infomart Portland is the first data center in Oregon and among a select few in the nation to become LEED Platinum certified by the USGBC‘s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design™) rating system, the foremost program for the design, construction, maintenance and operations of high-performance green buildings.

“Achieving the highest LEED distinction reinforces Infomart’s leadership in building and operating sustainable data centers, including one of the most efficient facilities in the world in Infomart Portland,” says John Sheputis, President, Infomart Data Centers. “Every facility we have built since 2008 has been LEED Gold certified. Achieving LEED Platinum certification in Oregon demonstrates our increasing commitment to sustainability and making responsible choices about energy procurement — even when the cost is more than the higher-carbon alternative. We’re proud to continue meeting our customers’ environmental and IT performance goals through choice, openness, data transparency and collaboration.”


LinkedIn is the principle tenant for the latest phase of construction that received the LEED Platinum certification. LinkedIn staff worked with Infomart and the company’s key contractors to design and deliver the award-winning project. DPR Construction served as general contractor and was supported by McKinstry and Rosendin Electric for mechanical and electrical systems, along with Jackson Main as the project architect.

Infomart Portland achieved LEED Platinum certification for implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance in: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. The facility uses Direct Access rights to source power from the leading producer of hydro-electric power in the U.S., the Bonneville Power Administration. As a Direct Access purchaser of power, Infomart chooses the energy mix and suppliers for the data center, achieving a 96 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions when compared to the national utility average and providing customers with low-carbon power at rates below the local utility tariffs.

“Achieving LEED certification is more than implementing sustainable practices. It represents a commitment to making the world a better place and influencing others to do better,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, President and CEO, USGBC. “Given the extraordinary importance of climate protection and the central role of the building industry in that effort, Infomart Data Centers demonstrates their environmentally conscious leadership through their LEED certification of Infomart Portland.”

Infomart Portland is one of the most efficient data centers in the United States, boasting a 99 percent efficient Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS), a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.16 in full economization mode, 100 percent aisle containment, and natural cooling methods to run the facility at least 70 percent of the year. Infomart Portland was also the first data center environment in which the user and landlord collaborated to achieve Uptime Institute’s Efficient IT Certification, which certifies sustainable leadership in IT operation, evidencing better control of how resources are both consumed and allocated. Additionally, the facility holds the Uptime Institute Management & Operations (M&O) “Stamp of Approval,” which verifies that Infomart’s critical facilities management continues to be among the best in the world.

SAN MATEO, CA – Nlyte Software, the leading data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software company, today announced the release of Nlyte Discovery. The new full-solution application set automatically collects and provides detailed information about all devices connected to an organization’s network. Nlyte Discovery includes the tools and technology necessary to visualize and manage the results of discovered hardware, configuration, services/processes and applications/software information.

Nlyte Discovery improves the operational efficiency of organizations by providing more accurate and timely information about all the assets within their computing infrastructure. IT personnel using the discovered information can identify zombie servers and/or “unknown” assets operating on the network as well as capture critical information about firmware patches and software, to help identify potential cybersecurity vulnerabilities.


“Nlyte Discovery is a comprehensive solution that scans across all major protocols and operating systems, including Linux and Microsoft, to provide a single application, holistic view of all data center and colocation infrastructure assets,” said Doug Sabella, CEO and President, Nlyte. “This not only helps personnel to perform their jobs more easily, but alerts them of security issues in their hardware, firmware and software patches so they can quickly mitigate the risks of these vulnerabilities – which as seen in recent news coverage, can be detrimental and brand-damaging to organizations when hacked.”

New Nlyte Discovery provides:
• Comprehensive scanning across major protocols and operations systems
• Built in robust reporting and data normalization capabilities across varying file structures
• Automated discovery and reporting of all networked assets (hardware, software, configuration, networking devices)
• Integration with Nlyte Suite of DCIM Solutions, bolstering the “system of record” for automated data center asset normalization
• Reconciliation with connected Infrastructure – CMDB, Asset Management, Service Desk
• Asset reconciliation of current vs. historical information

Nlyte Discovery is available immediately and can be purchased as a standalone solution or as part of Nlyte’s leading DCIM solution. Organizations have the option of launching the Discovery capabilities and later adding Nlyte’s full set of DCIM solutions. Current Nlyte customers can augment existing deployment to provide these new Discovery capabilities to ensure information within the Nlyte solution matches with current network operations.
