The Latino Economic Development Center is doing what it can to help Latinx and Black business owners reach their full potential despite the setbacks the COVID-19 pandemic has caused. 

The District has a robust and diverse Latinx population. Nearly 80,000 people or 11.3 percent of the city’s population identify as “Hispanic or Latino,” according to 2019 Census data.

Intel and Lightbits Labs have entered into a strategic collaboration to improve the performance and profitability of data centers. 

On Tuesday, the chip giant said both parties will develop disaggregated storage solutions suitable for data centers; in particular, systems that will reduce total-cost-of-ownership (TCO) issues caused by stranded disk capacity and performance problems.

Cost-reducing investments in the data center usually pursued relate to reducing waste, labor time, and reclaiming or recovering stranded disk capacity — allocated but unused storage that would otherwise not be available for use by applications.
