Today's topics include EMC and VMware forming a new hybrid cloud company, HP announces it will be shutting down its Helion Public Cloud, Apple updates OS X and iOS in order to Patch Security flaws, and AMD’s new embedded processors are aimed at 4k video uses.

EMC and VMware are creating a new jointly owned hybrid cloud company that will be based on the Virtustream business that EMC acquired earlier this year. EMC and VMware officials announced the new company—which will carry the Virtustream brand—Oct. 20 during the releases of their respective quarterly earnings. The new business will be added to the list of companies that make up EMC's federation. EMC and VMware each will own a 50 percent share of Virtustream.

Hewlett-Packard has given up competing against the likes of Amazon Web Services and announced that it will shut down its Helion public cloud early next year and focus its efforts on helping customers with their hybrid cloud ambitions. In a post on the company blog Oct. 21, Bill Hilf, senior vice president and general manager of HP's cloud business, said the company will shutter its public cloud Jan. 31, 2016, and will work with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft and other public cloud providers in creating hybrid cloud environments for businesses.

Apple is out with its first security update for its OS X El Capitan 10.11 desktop and iOS 9 mobile operating systems. The OS X 10.11.1 and iOS 9.1 security updates debut barely a month after the initial releases of OS X 10.11 and iOS 9. The security fixes in the new updates benefit from the efforts of researchers working at multiple vendors, including Yahoo and Google, that responsibly disclosed vulnerabilities to Apple.

AMD on Oct. 21 put forth a new embedded processor line that is sort of versatile, to say the least: It can run everything from medical imaging applications to 4K video slot machines—and plenty of other things in between. The Gen 2 R-series chips, introduced at a media event in San Francisco, can also be used for portable ultrasound devices, video arcade machines, digital and retail signage, media storage and communications and networking—among many other use cases.
