HOBOKEN, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/DataCenterManagement?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#DataCenterManagementlt;/agt;–HiveIO,
Inc., a company that transforms commodity data center equipment into
an intelligent virtualization platform, today released version 7.3 of
Hive Fabric, an Artificial Intelligence-ready fabric solution that
enables organizations to deploy virtualization technology without the
need for vendor complexity or specialists. The latest software release
provides Hive Fabric users with increased operational capabilities to
further reduce the time needed to support a virtualization environment
while also maximizing the performance, capacity, and spend on existing
“Hive Fabric was developed with IT professionals in mind, helping them
withstand common industry pain points like flexibility and usability,”
said Dan Newton, CEO of HiveIO. “The solution has helped IT in a variety
of industries exceed their business goals by creating a virtualization
solution that works with users, not against them. We’re continuing to
grow with a user-first mindset, and the launch of 7.3 delivers the new
capabilities based directly on feedback and needs of current Hive Fabric
Hive Fabric combines KVM hypervisor, software-defined storage (SDS) and
networking, and virtual desktop management, into an all-in-one
virtualization solution, eliminating the need for a multi-vendor,
multi-contract approach. The new features within the 7.3 solution
Graphics Acceleration: The rise in augmented and virtual
reality has increased the need for graphics acceleration. To
seamlessly improve the performance of virtual machines (VMs),
administrators can now install graphics processing units (GPUs) inside
of Hive Fabric-enabled servers and then simply turn the acceleration
on or off with a single click. Graphics acceleration is available via
GPU Sharing or GPU Passthrough and supports NVIDIA, ATI, and Intel.
Software-Defined Networking (SDN): Flexible networking is key
to delivering a fully virtualized data center. With ethernet
consolidating and the speed increasing, a need for IT Administrators
to separate traffic and guarantee bandwidth for desktops and
applications is becoming a necessity. Administrators can now add
multiple physical and virtual SDNs giving them the flexibility to fit
with any network architecture.
Configurable In-Memory Storage: Balancing business requirements
and the cost of infrastructure is challenging for any IT team. Memory
is the most scarce, highest-cost resource in the data center and a key
to meeting competing business objectives. The SDS capability extends
to managing server memory, allowing it to be allocated to either
storage or memory for virtual machines, with differing allocations
possible on every server.
Hive Sense: The comprehensive simplicity of setting up and
running Hive Fabric extends to HiveIO Support. Introduced in 7.3, Hive
Sense will allow HiveIO to proactively support customers by sending
logs, metrics, and configuration information back to the company. This
reduces the time needed to collect logs or understand how the
infrastructure is deployed, so support engineers can resolve issues
faster and remove the burden from your IT administrators.
Unlike legacy platforms that require specialists to operate overly
complicated systems, Hive Fabric utilizes an Intelligent Message Bus and
intuitive user interface (UI) to show an all-encompassing view of a data
center and its connected components in real time. This makes it easy for
administrators to find and act upon vital information and reduce
“The Hive Fabric UI, coupled with the easy-to-use enhancements in 7.3,
empowers administrators of all skill levels to manage the entire data
center,” said Toby Coleridge, Vice President of Product at HiveIO.
“Organizations can reallocate their highly-skilled specialists to other
areas of the business to drive innovation rather than be bogged down
with daily administrative tasks.”

Loyalist College to launch Canada’s first Technology Access Centre for natural products and cannabis
Loyalist College is the recipient of a $1,750,000 Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) College and Community Innovation (CCI) Program grant over five years to launch Canada’s first Technology Access Centre (TAC) for natural products and cannabis. In addition, Loyalist received $1Mthrough the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s (CFI) College-Industry Innovation Fund (CIIF) to add specialized equipment to the TAC.
Loyalist was one of 90 recipients at colleges, cégeps and polytechnics across the country to receive part of the $73M in funding, announced today by the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Sport, at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario. Through the CCI Program and the CIIF, this investment will help post-secondary institutions partner directly with local employers to facilitate commercialization and transform the results of research and development into new technologies to help businesses expand and grow.
The rapid growth of Canada’s cannabis, hops and natural products sectors positions Loyalist’s Applied Research Centre for Natural Products and Medical Cannabis (ARC) as a national innovation hub for small- to medium-sized enterprises. As a TAC, Loyalist will build on the ARC’s 15 years of natural product extraction expertise and analysis-based applied research. In transitioning to a TAC, Loyalist’s ARC will significantly increase the College’s capacity to lead applied research of commercially relevant natural products and cannabis, and to support innovation by enhancing industries’ access to sector-relevant expertise and technology.
The TAC initiative will cultivate an environment for College-industry partnerships to thrive while providing students with unparalleled opportunities for work-integrated learning; investigating extraction, isolation, and formulation; and product development. In partnership with the Quinte Economic Development Commission (QEDC), Loyalist will support the Bay of Quinte’s burgeoning natural products and cannabis sectors to generate regional socioeconomic benefits, and to provide opportunities for a new generation of innovators. Loyalist will also offer companies across Canada a supportive, community-oriented platform from which to enhance their productivity, expand their reach and augment their competitiveness in the global market.
“We are very grateful for NSERC’s continued support and proud to be Canada’s first TAC for natural products and cannabis. Loyalist currently has more than 25 companies interested in applied research, and as our ARC transitions into a TAC, we will be able to meet their requirements while significantly extending our network to help more companies to innovate. Our Biosciences and Cannabis Applied Science students will have the advantage of being involved in ground-breaking research that propels Canada forward as the world leader in cannabis and natural product developments.” – Dr. Ann Marie Vaughan, Loyalist College President & CEO
“It’s great to see this NSERC and CFI funding come through for Loyalist College’s launch of Canada’s first TAC for research in natural products and cannabis. Being able to conduct research in a state-of-the-art facility means that students working in the College’s ARC will be able to build up their expertise in product analysis; which can then be applied directly to commercial development. This is just the beginning of seeing a new series of natural products being designed, assessed, made and delivered from our region.” – Neil R. Ellis, Member of Parliament for Bay of Quinte
“I am so proud to see the innovation that is driving research and economic development in our rural community through Loyalist College’s ARC. Innovation is key to Rural Sustainability and this investment will ensure that we are training the next generation in the latest technological advances. I congratulate them on their NSERC and CFI grant, and wish them all the best of success.” – Mike Bossio, Member of Parliament for Hastings—Lennox and Addington
“The Quinte Economic Development Commission is proud to be a supporting partner with Loyalist College on this important initiative that is aligned with economic development opportunities and priorities in the region. The TAC will support industry research and innovation for companies in key industry sectors as well as helping students develop in-demand skills and experience. Congratulations to the team at Loyalist on launching this important project.” – Chris King, Chief Executive Officer, Quinte Economic Development Commission
