It's another episode of El Reg's weekly tech podcast, stuffed with news and views on everything that's happened in our world this week.

In this episode, regular host Greg Knieriemen heads a panel discussion at the OpenStack Summit in Paris earlier this month. The panel discusses some of the challenges with OpenStack Storage. We've got an All Star panel in the form of Mark Twomey (aka Storagezilla), technical director in the EMC CTO team; Alex McDonald, NetApp CTO Office; Manju Ramanathpura, CTO, Intelligent Platforms, Hitachi Data Systems; Neil Levine, director of product management at Red Hat; and Aaron Delp, cloud solutions architect at SolidFire.

This week we discuss...

  • OpenStack storage: Open but not neutral (2:30)
  • Vendor-added value to OpenStack (6:30)
  • Embracing neutrality in Open Source (9:05)
  • The missing parts (10:55)
  • Challenges of policy management (18:40)
  • Is SAN an equal citizen to NAS in OpenStack? (23:20)
  • Software-defined storage and legacy vendors (28:20)
  • The role of Fibre Channel in OpenStack (34:35)

  • Robotics and 5G to spur growth of SoC industry – report
    Big OEMs hogging production and COVID causing supply issues

    The system-on-chip (SoC) side of the semiconductor industry is poised for growth between now and 2026, when it's predicted to be worth $6.85 billion, according to an analyst's report. 

    Chances are good that there's an SoC-powered device within arm's reach of you: the tiny integrated circuits contain everything needed for a basic computer, leading to their proliferation in mobile, IoT and smart devices. 

    The report predicting the growth comes from advisory biz Technavio, which looked at a long list of companies in the SoC market. Vendors it analyzed include Apple, Broadcom, Intel, Nvidia, TSMC, Toshiba, and more. The company predicts that much of the growth between now and 2026 will stem primarily from robotics and 5G.

  • Deepfake attacks can easily trick live facial recognition systems online
    Plus: Next PyTorch release will support Apple GPUs so devs can train neural networks on their own laptops

    In brief Miscreants can easily steal someone else's identity by tricking live facial recognition software using deepfakes, according to a new report.

    Sensity AI, a startup focused on tackling identity fraud, carried out a series of pretend attacks. Engineers scanned the image of someone from an ID card, and mapped their likeness onto another person's face. Sensity then tested whether they could breach live facial recognition systems by tricking them into believing the pretend attacker is a real user.

    So-called "liveness tests" try to authenticate identities in real-time, relying on images or video streams from cameras like face recognition used to unlock mobile phones, for example. Nine out of ten vendors failed Sensity's live deepfake attacks.

  • Lonestar plans to put datacenters in the Moon's lava tubes
    How? Founder tells The Register 'Robots… lots of robots'

    Imagine a future where racks of computer servers hum quietly in darkness below the surface of the Moon.

    Here is where some of the most important data is stored, to be left untouched for as long as can be. The idea sounds like something from science-fiction, but one startup that recently emerged from stealth is trying to turn it into a reality. Lonestar Data Holdings has a unique mission unlike any other cloud provider: to build datacenters on the Moon backing up the world's data.

    "It's inconceivable to me that we are keeping our most precious assets, our knowledge and our data, on Earth, where we're setting off bombs and burning things," Christopher Stott, founder and CEO of Lonestar, told The Register. "We need to put our assets in place off our planet, where we can keep it safe."
