Wanted – GTX 1070Ti & Intel i7-3770K

As title, I’m after a Geforce GTX 1070Ti

Thought I bought one on here already, but the seller decided to ignore my asking price offer and sell it to someone else instead and not even tell me until I found the archived thread..

So I still have the money set aside for a good GTX 1070Ti if you have one for sale. It must still be under warranty (preferably transferable to me), ideally less than a year old.

Not a noisy blower model either please as I’m trying to make my PC quieter than it is now…

Added a wanted ad for an Intel Core i7-3770K Ivybridge CPU..

Looking at extending the life of my system which currently has an i5-2500K CPU, if you have one lying around that you’ve upgraded from I’m definitely interested for the right price. Clearly must be fully working, and not overclocked too much!

Cheers..

HiveIO seeks to create buzz in HCI market

Newcomer HiveIO Inc. is trying to make it in the already crowded hyper-converged infrastructure market by touting a software-only application that it claims uses AI for resource management.

HiveIO this week released Hive Fabric 7.0, its hyper-converged application. The vendor, based in Hoboken, N.J., has actually been around since 2015 and shipped its first version of Hive Fabric that same year, but has kept a low profile until now. HiveIO’s co-founders Kevin McNamara and Ofer Bezalel came out of JP Morgan Chase’s engineering team. HiveIO CTO McNamara said the goal was to create an infrastructure that consisted of one platform, was simple to use and was inexpensive.

“They thought about a single product, single vendor, hyper-converged fabric out of the box that just deploys and just works and reduces the complexity of the data center,” said HiveIO CEO Dan Newton, who joined HiveIO last April from Rackspace. “Our team comes from an operational background, and we’re focused on making our product operationally very easy, yet very stable. We try to make the technology work for the customers. We don’t want the customers to have to work to make it work.”

Newton said HiveIO has about 400 customers, including those it picked up by acquiring the assets of HCI software vendor Atlantis Computing in July 2017. HiveIO also inherited Atlantis’ OEM deal with Lenovo, which packaged Atlantis’ HCI software on its servers. However, HiveIO has no other hardware partnerships for Hive Fabric.

Newton said the goal is to provide HCI software that can deploy in 20 minutes on three nodes and requires little training to use.

We put the Message Bus into appliances and use machine learning to manage the appliances.
Kevin McNamaraCTO, HiveIO

HiveIO describes Hive Fabric as a “zero-layer, hardware-agnostic” hyper-converged platform that runs on any x86 server or in the cloud. Hive Fabric includes a free kernel-based virtual machine hypervisor, although it can also run with VMware and Microsoft hypervisors. Hive Fabric manages storage, compute, virtualization and networking across HCI clusters through its Message Bus. It includes a REST API and Universal Rest Interface to support third-party and customer applications.

McNamara called the artificial intelligence-driven Hive Fabric Message Bus “unique to the industry.” he said the Message Bus relies on AI and metadata to format data in real-time and provide predictive analytics to prevent potential performance and capacity problems.

“It’s all integrated into the stack,” McNamara said. “We can see everything in the hardware, everything in the stack, everything in the guest server and everything in the application layers. We put the Message Bus into appliances and use machine learning to manage the appliances. You can move workloads across appliances.”

Newton added, “Every piece of data point all comes through the Message Bus.”

HiveIO released Hive Fabric 7.0 this week, simplifying resource management through a Cluster Resource Scheduler (CRS). The CRS uses AI to monitor resource allocation across the cluster, and moves guest virtual machines between servers to improve operational efficiency. Hive Fabric 7.0 also allows customers to run multiple mixed-application workloads.

Forrester Research senior analyst Naveen Chhabra said HiveIO will need to prove its AI capabilities to make it in an HCI field that includes at least 15 vendors.

“A number of companies already have proven technology — including Nutanix, Cisco, Dell EMC, VMWare,” Chhabra said. “HiveIO can do the same, but they must deliver at least table stakes technology, and then find out what innovations they can come up with. They talk about the interconnect fabric with artificial intelligence. It’s a transport layer for sending bits and bytes from one node to another. What kind of artificial intelligence does it have? Is it artificial intelligence or just AI washing like you hear from other vendors? And they have to find a strong use case for that artificial intelligence, even if it’s just one use case.”

HiveIO executives claim their early customers’ workloads include general server virtualization, virtual desktops, databases, log analysis and test/dev.

Hive Fabric is sold as a monthly subscription based on the number of physical servers with no restrictions on memory, storage or cores.

HiveIO promises to support Atlantis Computing hyper-converged and virtual desktop infrastructure software through 2022. Newton said HiveIO will offer Atlantis customers an upgrade path to Hive Fabric. He said HiveIO hired some Atlantis employees but is not using its technology in Hive Fabric.

HiveIO has 30 employees in the U.S. and U.K. It has completed two funding rounds and lists El Dorado Ventures, Rally Ventures, Osage Venture Partners and Citrix as investors but does not disclose its total funding.

BP Logix BPM tool packs AI features in latest release

Low-code BPM development tools today already help developers simplify and speed up business process application development. The next step is to make those apps smarter.

To that end, BP Logix, a business process management (BPM) company in Vista, Calif., recently introduced version 5.0 of its Process Director that adds AI features to enable predictive analysis, enhanced UIs and journals for configurable collaboration.

Rather than present complex AI features, Process Director 5.0 offers a set of basic machine learning tools that the average app developer can use, such as a point-and-click graphical interfaces that guide configuration processes and display results of analytics, with no coding required.

Embedding intelligence into business applications requires specialized knowledge and teams of data scientists, said Charles Araujo, principal analyst for Intellyx, a consulting firm in Glens Falls, N.Y. Process Director 5.0’s blend of AI and low-code features brings predictive application processes to nontechnical users.

“The value Process Director 5.0 delivers is less about features, per se, and more about accessibility,” Araujo said.

AI inside

The AI tools inside Process Director 5.0 enable machine learning, sentiment analysis, capture and expression of dissimilar events and conditions in a single state and configurable collaboration. The company also added UI features for iterative list search, calendar views, and inline HTML and text editing.

“AI and machine learning create prediction models that have been missing from BPM,” said Neil Ward-Dutton, research director for MWD Advisors, a U.K.-based IT consulting firm. With AI, the application learns from past history, identifies trends and makes recommendations for decisions.

As an example, Ward-Dutton pointed to how AI capabilities can help with a loan request by identifying factors that make the applicant and the loan’s purpose a low or high risk. Combined data mining and machine learning tools aggregate information about previous loan applications and current market conditions to help the loan officer make a decision.

Araujo said he sees businesses with reliable data on actions and outcomes adopt AI-enabled, predictive-type applications quickly and with good results. Developers can use that legacy data to build models that predict behavior of application users who meet certain criteria and perform specific actions. With these functions, the tool recommends a best action and prioritizes options that are presented to the user, so the application feels more intuitive or takes actions automatically.

Applying AI for nontechnical users, even with accessible tools, requires a change in traditional BPM project approaches. Araujo said project teams will have to think like a data scientist.

“Applying intelligence to applications requires imagination,” he said. “Developers need to think about application usage patterns and imagine ways to use predictive capabilities to meet users’ needs.”

“That’s not the way we’ve historically approached applications, particularly business-process-based ones,” Araujo added.

Process Director 5.0 is generally available, with versions for both cloud and on premises. In addition to AI and low-code/no-code development tools, the platform includes traditional BPM capabilities for compliance automation, process modeling, multifactor authentication and other standard BPM features.

For Trade – 2017 27” iMac 3.4Ghz i5 5k retina – 16GB RAM / 1TB FusionDrive

** Already posted this in desktop classifieds, but my brother is favouring an MBP; so putting this in here too **

Posting this on behalf of my brother. Feel free to communicate with me and if there’s serious interest, I can send you his details via PM

For trade or possible straight sale: 2017 27” iMac bought March 2018 with email receipt to show outright purchase

I’m seriously considering either selling this or swapping it out for a decent spec’d Mac mini (must have a min of 16GB RAM and either a 256GB SSD or above) OR a 15.4″ MBP with decent RAM and an SSD

Really would need them to have warranty (either normal Apple or AppleCare etc) ideally and they need to be in superb condition

We’ve just put pen to paper, so to speak, to get an extension done as we feel it’d be the right time now and before, if we’re lucky enough, to start a family…! So, my office needs to be small and fluid, rather than a huge office desk and 27″ iMac and hifi stuff, as it is currently, as it’s going to get knocked down, so I may end up working from the living room…!

iMac spec: 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display

Bought March 2018, so well within warranty and within the AppleCare addition period. In absolute pristine condition/as new, fully boxed with power cable (no mouse or keyboard though – can be picked up easy enough and I feel these are a personal preference too (ie. I use a trackpad and fully wired, full-size keyboard)

I paid full price for it and would be after £1450 with no offers

As for the swap; it’d be the Mac Mini plus cash my way, or the same with the MBP and cash on top to equate the value of my iMac

I’d consider an MBP with the value of £1k maximum, ideally less, or a Mac mini with the value of £500 or less. But feel free to drop me a line with what you’ve got if you’re interested in this

I’m in Preston, Lancs and would rather this be sorted in person. But happy to send the iMac at a 50/50 split of the cost. If the Mac mini/MBP seller isn’t local; I’d need to have that sent to me first, so I can shift everything across correctly and then fully wipe/reinstall the iMac, should take a day at max

Let me know if this could be of interest, or feel free to drop me a PM

Price and currency: 1450
Delivery: Goods must be exchanged in person
