App-Aware Storage Evolves: Oracle ZS4-4 NAS Sees 10,000+ DB Containers

We’ve been following Oracle closely with their recent FS1 launch and now the roll-out a newly upgraded ZS4-4 NAS appliance. ... The performance improvements here alone make the ZS4-4 a heavy weight storage contender. Even without the amazing performance stats, the ZS4-4 is worth looking at in depth to understand the evolution of how storage in our book is going to increasingly get smarter about how to best serve downstream applications. In this case, the ZS4-4 now has direct support and visibility into how Oracle 12c “containers” are deployed within it. This pluggable database approach shares key database server overhead and can scale 5x more than just aggregating separate database instances next to each other, using much less memory as it scales. ...

IoT Goes Real-Time, Gets Predictive - Glassbeam Launches Spark-based Machine Learning

In-Memory processing was all the rage at Strata 2014 NY last month, and the hottest word was Spark! Spark is big data scale-out cluster solution that provides a way to speedily analyze large data sets in-memory using a “resilient distributed data” design for fault-tolerance.  It can deploy into its own optimized cluster, or ride on top of Hadoop 2.0 using YARN… I haven’t done justice to Spark itself and perhaps its biggest onrushing use case - taming the real-time data from from the Internet of Things (IoT)...

GridGain Turns Over In-Memory Platform To Apache As Ignite Project

Recently I wrapped up a report on GridGain’s In Memory Hadoop acceleration in which I explored how leveraging memory can vastly improve the production performance of many Hadoop MapReduce jobs, and even tackle streaming use cases without re-writing them or implementing newer streaming paradigms. GridGain drops into existing Hadoop environments without much fuss, so it’s an easy add-on/upgrade. Now GridGain has just transferred the core in-memory platform over to Apache Software Foundation as the newly accepted Apache incubator Ignite project, completely contributed to the community at large.

A Shift To Enterprise Features For Big Data Solutions: Notes from Strata/Hadoop World NY 2014

I had a blast last week at Strata/Hadoop World NY 2014. I got a real sense that the mass of big data sponsors/vendors are finally focusing on what it takes to get big data solutions into production operations. In fact, in one of the early keynotes it was noted that the majority of the attendees were implementing software engineers and not necessarily analytical data scientists. Certainly there was no shortage of high profile use cases bandied about and impressive sessions on advanced data science, but on the show floor much of the talk was about making big data work in real world data centers… I’ll certainly be diving into many of these topics more deeply, but here is a not-so-brief roundup of major themes culled from the 20+ sponsors I met with at the show:...
