07:09 EDTFB, CSCOFacebook introduces Wedge, FBOSS
Facebook posted on its engineering blog that "Over the last three years, we’ve been working within the Open Compute Project to apply this principle to open designs for racks, servers, storage boxes, and motherboards. And last year, we kicked off a new networking project within OCP, with a goal of developing designs for OS-agnostic top-of-rack switches. This was the first step toward disaggregating the network – separating hardware from software, so we can spur the development of more choices for each – and our progress so far has exceeded our expectations... Today we’re pleased to unveil the next step: a new top-of-rack network switch, code-named 'Wedge,' and a new Linux-based operating system for that switch, code-named 'FBOSS.' These projects break down the hardware and software components of the network stack even further, to provide a new level of visibility, automation, and control in the operation of the network. By combining the hardware and software modules together in new ways, 'Wedge' and 'FBOSS' depart from current networking design paradigms to leverage our experience in operating hundreds of thousands of servers in our data centers. In other words, our goal with these projects was to make our network look, feel, and operate more like the OCP servers we've already deployed, both in terms of hardware and software." Reference Link

07:24 EDTFBTech leaders concede need to address privacy, security concerns, FT says
Prominent start-up investor and Facebook (FB) director Peter Thiel said a "crescendo of concern is building up in Europe" about the U.S. tech industry's record on online privacy and security, which Silicon Valley is underestimating "badly,” though Google (GOOG) chairman Eric Schmidt tech companies "are way sensitive" to the concerns, reported Financial Times. The same report noted that Brad Smith, general counsel of Microsoft (MSFT), said some in the industry have "underestimated the degree to which people care about privacy,” while Salesforce.com (CRM) CEO Marc Benioff said consumer Internet companies have “paid a terrible price” for imposing a U.S.-centric view of their technology.

11:17 EDTCSCOEMC seen as potential target after said to mull VMware stake sale
EMC (EMC) is considering selling its 80% stake in cloud computing infrastructure provider VMware (VMW), The New York Post reported today, citing unnamed sources. Calling The New York Post "surprisingly accurate" on M&A news, UBS said the likelihood of change at EMC has increased and it has become a potential takeover target. WHAT'S NEW: EMC is exploring the possibility of selling its stake in VMware, which could be acquired by HP (HPQ), according to one source, The Post reported. EMC could also look to sell other assets, the newspaper quoted a second unnamed source as saying. ANALYST REACTION: UBS analyst Steven Milunovich wrote that he is more convinced in the wake of the Post story that "something is up" at EMC. Although EMC has denied in the past that it would consider selling or spinning off VMware, the company could change its tune, the analyst stated. HP could buy VMware or all of EMC, while Oracle (ORCL) and Cisco (CSCO) are also potential buyers of EMC, Milunovich believes.The analyst kept a $33 price target and Buy rating on shares of EMC. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Activist investor Elliott Management, a hedge fund, has taken a $1B stake in EMC and wants the company to spin off VMware, The Wall Street Journal reported in July. Early last month, research firm FBR Capital wrote that an EMC spin-off of VMware could enhance shareholder value for both companies and make VMware a top acquisition candidate by a larger technology company. The firm kept an Outperform rating on EMC at that time. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, EMC was little changed at $29.50, down from its earlier high of $29.89. VMware fell 0.7% to $96.75, down from its earlier daily high of $97.86.
