Data Awareness and Operational Intelligence - IT Can Step Up By Automatically Adding Value to Data

This is a big title deserving a full blown report, maybe even evolving market landscape research, but here are a few teasers to get your juices flowing -
1. IT should be constantly striving to provide more value and return back to the business
2. Data is too valuable to just persist, protect, backup, and archive.  ...

What if IT could deploy a “data service” that auto-magically on ingest turned all kinds of data into a big coherent linked data set?  A giant Facebook for the business and all it’s data entitites? With that service, business users and operationally focused apps could immediately query across all data (think data lake and externally linked in data too), not looking for specific records as in SQL or certain terms as in search (although these are powerful paradigms too), but to find inherent patterns and relationships between business objects and entities.

Massive IOPS with Drops In Price-Performance - Early 2015 SPC-2 Standings

There is something quite interesting happening on the SPC-2 top 10 results page. Right now, HP (with XP7) and Kaminario, a hot all-flash solution, are leading the performance list. But the next three entries belong to Oracle’s ZFS Storage ZS3 and ZS4 lineup. And when you scroll down a bit, the biggest surprise is that the top 10 price/performance storage leader is now Oracle! ... when you start to dig into the Oracle ZS series, you find a number of really attractive built-in features and capabilities including auto-tiering, multi-tenancy, and automated QoS…

InfiniBand Updates Specs Preparing for 10000 Node Exascale Clusters

We’ve long been fans of InfiniBand, watching as new generations of enterprise class scale-out clusters and storage solutions learn from the HPC world how to achieve really high-speed interconnection. InfiniBand itself may never win the popular market race against Ethernet, but newer generations of Ethernet are looking more and more like InfiniBand. And parts of the IB world, namely RDMA and RoCE, have swept into datacenters almost unaware (e.g. look under the hood of SMB 3.0).

Compressing Data for Performance: Pernix’s Latest Release Squeezes Into RAM

As machines are available with ever more memory in them, we’ve been seeing that memory put to a lot of good uses lately. Today Pernix Data released FVP 2.5 which updates their big 2.0 release that brought memory into their server-side storage acceleration solution along with the use of flash. Imagine if you could pool server memory across the virtual cluster and use it for a very fast, and protected persistent storage tier. That’s pretty much what Pernix FVP does with their Distributed Fault Tolerant Memory (DFTM) design.
