US Air Force picks HP for five-year computer contract

Filed under
Hardware

The Air Force has awarded a five-year contract to Hewlett Packard Co. of Palo Alto, Calif., to provide desktop PCs, notebooks and servers as part of the service's strategy to reshape asset management and reduce total cost of technology ownership.

The Desktops, Laptops, Servers Blanket Purchase Agreement allows the company direct bidding through the AFWay system or the Air Force's large quarterly enterprise buys for desktop and notebook PCs. The policy of the Air Force Office of the CIO is that planned desktop and notebook purchases must be bought through one of these two channels.

Under the terms of the BPA, Air Force customers can buy HP client computing devices, departmental servers, additional storage for existing storage area networks, peripherals, replacement parts, and associated services and accessories from the company's General Services Administration schedule.

The agreement covers all non-ruggedized HP desktops, notebooks and tablet PCs. The BPA places no order limitations and open market micro-purchases are allowed.

The BPA is being managed by the Standard Systems Group at Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala.

  • AMDGPU DC Code Lands For Linux 4.15 Kernel
    Linus Torvalds has accepted the AMDGPU DC display code pull request for the Linux 4.15 kernel. AMD Linux users can now rejoice! Overnight David Airlie sent in the AMDGPU DC pull request for Linux 4.15 and since then Linus Torvalds was active on the kernel mailing list ranting about AMD header files and other unrelated to DC code. He was also pulling in other PRs... It was getting a bit worrisome, given the DC code not being in pristine shape, but it was exciting as heck to see this evening that he did go ahead and pull in the 132 thousand lines of new kernel code to land this AMDGPU DC. Linus hasn't provided any commentary about DC on the kernel mailing list as of writing.
  • Radeon VCN Encode Support Lands In Mesa 17.4 Git
    It's an exciting day for open-source Radeon Linux users today as besides the AMDGPU DC pull request (albeit still unmerged as of writing), Radeon VCN encoding support has landed in Mesa Git.
  • The - Hopefully - Final Stab At Intel Fastboot Support
    Intel's Maarten Lankhorst has sent out what could be the final patches for enabling "fastboot" support by default within their DRM graphics driver.

Raspberry Digital Signage 10

It shows web pages from Internet, LAN or internal sources (a WordPress installation comes already installed by default on the SD card); there is no way to escape this view but rebooting the machine. Marco Buratto has released Raspberry Digital Signage 10.0 today, which comes with the latest and greatest Chromium build (featuring advanced HTML5 capabilities, Adobe Flash support and H264/AVC video acceleration), so you can display more attractive resources, more easily.
