Product Update:
PLX today offers an industry-leading 18 PCI Express (PCIe) Gen3 switches now in production and expects to release next generation PCIe Gen3 feature-rich technology in the coming quarters to enable its ExpressFabric® initiative. ExpressFabric was demonstrated live at the Intel Developers Forum (IDF) and SuperComputing (SC13) conferences in 2013. PLX is working closely with market leaders who are planning to deploy ExpressFabric technology in data centers to replace box-to-box connectivity currently using Ethernet and InfiniBand within individual racks. ExpressFabric eliminates power hungry and costly protocol translation adapter cards and retains native PCIe within the rack while seamlessly connecting to Ethernet for rack-to-rack connectivity.

Business Outlook:
The following statements are based on current expectations. The company does not intend to update, confirm or change this guidance until its first quarter 2014 earnings release, although it may provide additional details regarding its guidance during today's scheduled conference call.

  • Net revenues for the first quarter ending March 31, 2014, are expected to be between $24 million and $27 million
  • Non-GAAP gross margins are expected to be approximately 56 percent with GAAP margins at approximately 55 percent. The GAAP number includes an accrual for royalties associated with the Internet Machines litigation and share-based compensation.
  • Operating expenses are expected to be approximately $14.0 million. Included in operating expenses are share-based compensation charges of approximately $0.6 million. The first quarter also includes a 40nm tape-out and beginning of the year higher payroll taxes. For the year, operating expenses net of share-based compensation are expected to be about $52 million.

Conference Call:
PLX management plans to conduct a conference call and webcast today at 2:00 p.m. (PT) to discuss its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2013 financial results, as well as its first quarter 2014 outlook.

@ThingsExpo Stories
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo, June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
