VMware Fusion factors in Collider computing

VMware reports that its Fusion software for Macintoshes is being used by scientists at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, creators of the Large Hadron Collider.

VMware Fusion enables Intel-based Macs to run non-Mac OS X based operating systems without having to reboot first. CERN scientists are using Fusion to share Linux-based computer code on Fusion "virtual machines" running on Macs. The software links the computers to the LHC Computing Grid -- a network of about 40,000 CPUs.

Located underground in Geneva, Switzerland, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest particle accelerator, and physicists will use the LHC to study the origin of matter by colliding protons together. Scientists hope to produce subatomic particles that will help prove or disprove current theories about the birth of the Universe.

The LHC went online with its first proton beam Wednesday, with high-energy collisions expected to start on October 21, 2008.

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

Malwarebytes shoots the breeze with channel, prospects

A Kumeu, Auckland, winery was the venue for a Malwarebytes event for partner and prospect MSPs - with some straight shooting on the side. The half-day getaway, which featured an archery competition, lunch and wine-tasting aimed at bringing Malwarebytes' local New Zealand and top and prospective MSP partners together to celebrate recent local successes, and discuss the current state of malware in New Zealand. This was also a unique opportunity for local MSPs to learn about how they can get the most out of Malwarebytes' MSP program and offering, as more Kiwi businesses are targeted by malware.

EDGE 2019: Channel forges new partnerships during evening networking

Partners, vendors and distributors reconnected during a number of social gatherings during EDGE 2019. The first evening saw the channel congregate for a welcome party at the Hamilton Island yacht club, while the main poolside proved to be the perfect stop for a barbecue on the final night.
