Week 2017/8/7 Top 5 Hosting Industry News

Google launched that it is now cutting the cloud virtual machines’ high-speed storage by up to 63%. This is good news for its customers and they can pay 63% less for the Local SSD storage acctached to Google Cloud Platform’s virtual machines. Also, this pricing discount shows the fiercer competition among the cloud providers such as Google, AWS and Microsoft Azure. This price cut is not first time, and we believe it will come gradually and regularly from those participants in cloud market.

Early this week, IBM Research launched its latest achievement in distributed deep learning, also called DDL, allowing to build software scaling up DDL across hundreds of learners (refer to GPUs) at near-ideal efficiency. It is a new milestone in the deep learning performance. It tackles a major issue when deploying deep learning, which is that if the GPUs are becoming faster, the learning or communication of GPUs with each other will get worse. 

Amazon Web Service this week announced that it has joined Cloud Native Computing Foundation and becomes a platinum member of the Foundation. Both organizations have confirmed the reports. This major move is to support AWS open source projects which help developers to build those modern applications. Meanwhile, vice president of AWS cloud architecture, Adrian Cockcroft, would join the CNCF to govern board.

Microsoft joined Apple, Mozilla, and Google this week in disabling security certificates offered by Chinese company WoSign and its subsidiary StartCom. The company said that it has had enough of the CAs WoSign and StartCom, one of its subsidiary’s poor security. And, neither Edge nor Internet Explore would trust any new security certificates from the notorious company and its subsidiary. Actually, the reputation corruption should traced back to last year, when SSL Labs said WoSign's SSL performance has lost browser vendors’ trust and been accused of persistent deception and dishonesty.  

According to China’s watchdog, three Chinese media giants Tencent, Weibo, and Baidu are reported that they are under the investigation by China’s Cyberspace Administration, which is concerned about the disruptive content. The Cyberspace Administration of China has instructed its branches in Beijing and Guangdong to check the three companies’ user-generated content laden with “rumors, violence, porn” disruptive to the social order. This move shows that Chinese government continues to tighten scrutiny over the internet content.
