UGA picks up top wideout

first_imgRandrecous DavisRandrecous DavisATHENS, Ga. – One of Georgia’s bigger goals for the Class of 2016 has been to improve its depth at wide receiver.Monday, the Bulldogs were able to do just that, earning a verbal commitment from four-star receiver Randrecous Davis out of Mays High School.“I have officially committed to Georgia and I’m proud to be a Bulldog,” the 5-foot-11, 180-pound prospect said. “I was going to do at Dawg Night but he said he didn’t have my grades on file yet so my coach had to email it over today and I had to send them my ACT score. They just needed that for me to commit and I went on and did it.”A strong performance at Dawg Night last Saturday helped Davis cement his standing in the eyes of Georgia coaches.“They just really wanted me to come out there and work out and do what I do regularly,” Davis said of the camp. “What I do all the time and that’s it. I did good, making people fall, getting open, making plays, I did all that and then I held it down.”One of the state’s more highly recruited wide receivers, Davis holds over 18 offers and chose the Bulldogs over such schools as Alabama and Florida.He credits his longtime friendship with another Bulldog commitment and a number of friends currently playing for the Bulldogs for making his decision an easy one.“A lot of it had to do with Julian Rochester, we played middle school together on the same team so we’re like brothers and he had a big part in it,” Davis said. “My former teammate Natrez Patrick is up there, so are other guys I’ve known forever like D’Andre Walker, Jayson Stanley, Aaron Dowdell, they all had a part in it. We’re all close and we all want to play together again.”More stories from the UGA InsiderLIKE 11Alive’s Facebook page to get the latest breaking news and weather alerts, plus discuss trending topics!Download the 11Alive News app to get the latest news while you’re on the go!

Roadblock to Virtualization: “Virtual Stall” Strikes Again

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market No, that’s not a typo in the headline. You’ve heard of virtual sprawl already, no doubt, and you may have experienced it in your own company. But virtual stall or VM stall refers to a concept coined by CA Technologies, from a landmark white paper published in August 2010.Essentially, the idea is this: Many enterprises have launched their boats already, and are heading toward a virtualized data center or a reputable hybrid cloud solution. The problem is, they’re not halfway there yet, and the reasons are often more political than technological.The broader topic of virtualizing large business workloads is the topic of a panel I’ll be moderating today at 1:00 pm ET / 10:00 am PT, with VMware Senior Systems Engineer Stephen Shultz and Intel Mission-Critical Data Center Strategist Mitchell Shults. (You read right, Shultz and Shults.) It’s a live chat, and I’d like to have you join in, especially with respect to this very topic: how to realign the organization around retooled, virtualized resources.Yesterday, I talked about the problem of departmental silos that fail to align with the resource pools and shared servers that are the by-products of the virtual data center. Whereas a few years ago, certain managers were in charge of particular boxes, today those boxes don’t physically exist. But their jobs do.“Virtual stall” is a bigger problem, which I discussed in greater detail in a story earlier in the summer. It’s more of a political/technological mashup, or what we used to call in the 20th century “sociology,” where issues that crop up in the business of migrating or transitioning systems lead to breakdowns in communication, which lead to the inevitable problems of whom to blame.Here’s an excerpt from the CA white paper from Mason Bradbury and Andi Mann:“Even some IT departments are skeptical of moving key systems to virtual environments for fear of the ‘guilty until proven innocent’ phenomenon – in which the virtualization infrastructure is blamed for problems until it is definitively shown otherwise. As resources are delivered to applications in pools, application specialists and others outside of the systems management department have far less visibility than in a traditional physical environment into the systems on which their applications run. When problems arise, employees are far more likely to blame the virtual infrastructure, as they cannot troubleshoot it themselves. Even if the problem has to do with the operating system or application itself, virtualization administrators worry that application owners will blame them until they can locate the problem and show that it is not a fault in the virtual infrastructure.”Since that white paper was published, other firms including Symantec have followed up with new research. For example, take the case of the admin who happens to be the script writing expert in the IT shop. This is the go-to person for ad hoc issues that crop up, and who eventually becomes credited with finding the whirlwind solutions to every virtualization transition issue that admins fail to address. If the need for solutions were to, say, go away, then the level of appreciation they receive as a result would also subside. As the Symantec report published last June relates, some IT shops get hung up on never-ending remedial projects that require one-time script writing — for example, “root cause analysis.” There may or may not be actual analysis involved, but the process becomes self-sustaining, taking on a life of its own. And Symantec has started measuring the side-effects in terms of dollars.As Symantec’s Jennifer Ellard put it, “The admins simply delay virtualization which costs them increased operational complexity and inability to consolidate physical servers and end up having to pay for the energy and space utilization.”So here’s the problem: In environments where virtualization deployment takes place in stages, the workloads that businesses would most readily classify as mission critical – the big databases, the e-mail servers, messaging, collaboration, ERP — get pushed to the bottom of the agenda. And there they sit, waiting for the political issues to resolve themselves further up the ladder.We’ll be discussing the entire topic of mission critical workload virtualization this afternoon in the RWW live chat. I hope to see you there.

Arm releases free CortexM processor cores for FPGAs includes measures to combat

first_imgAt the Xilinx Developer Forum in San Jose, Arm announced its collaboration with Xilinx, the market leader in FPGAs. The collaboration plans to bring the benefits of Arm Cortex-M processors to FPGA through the Arm DesignStart program, thus providing scalability and a standardized processor architecture across the Xilinx portfolio. Users can expect a fast, completely no-cost access to soft processor IP, while taking advantage of the easy design integration with Xilinx tools and comprehensive software development solutions to accelerate success on FPGA. These processors will enable embedded developers to design and innovate confidently, while benefiting from simplified software development and superior code density. In addition, products can be easily scaled on these processors, thanks to the support of the broadest technology ecosystem of software, tools, and services provided by the team. Arm for FPGA comes with the following benefits: #1 Maximum choice and flexibility Users can obtain an easy and instant access to Cortex-M1 and Cortex-M3 soft processor IP for FPGA integration with Xilinx products. They will not be charged any license fee or royalties for this access. #2 Reduced software costs The processor focuses on reducing software costs while obtaining maximum reuse of software across an entire OEM’s product portfolio on a standardized CPU architecture, scaling from single board computers through to FPGAs. #3 Ease of design The team has ensured an easy integration with Xilinx system and peripheral IP through Vivado Design Suite. They use a drag-and-drop design approach to create FPGA systems with Cortex-M processors. The extensive software ecosystem and knowledge base of others designing on Arm, will ultimately result in reducing the time to market for these processors #4 Measures to Combat FOSSi (free and open source silicon) threat Arm Cortex-M1 includes a mandatory license agreement, which contains clauses against reverse-engineering. The clause also prevents the use of these cores for comparative benchmarking. These clauses will assist Arm to enable IP holds up against the latest and greatest FOSSi equivalents (like RISC-V) when running on the same FPGAs. This is not the first time that Arm has raised its voice against FOSSi threats. Earlier this year, they had also launched an aggressive marketing campaign specifically targeting RISC-V. The Arm and Xilinx collaboration will enable developers to take advantage of the benefits of heterogeneous computing on a single processor architecture.
