Do you think that the new hardware-level security in Cascade Lake will be a selling point for partners?

I would think so. What has been proven is that the best way to remain secure is to remain consistent with patches and consistently just stay current. New threats and new things are determined all the time, and we have placed the highest priority in terms of securing at the silicon level as much as we can. I think it's important to constantly stay aware of what we're doing in security, as well the broad ecosystem and just continue to keep your infrastructure current.

Do you plan to have any specific messaging that talks about security benefits of Cascade Lake?

I don't know. We have historically talked about the security benefits of our platform. I just don't know one way or the other.

Do you think Cascade Lake's new hardware security capabilities will create a new refresh opportunity?

I don't know. I think, again, the most important thing is for customers to stay current both with software and their hardware platforms. We're not going to slow down in terms of the way we come to market with those, but … what I can say is the data center business is strong, and it's strong. The [second] quarter -- we just put up 26 percent -- was a record for us, so data center business continues to be strong.
