What’s a Multi-cloud Really?  Some Insider Notes from VMworld 2017

As comfortable 65-70 degree weather blankets New England here as we near end of summer, flying into Las Vegas for VMworld at 110 degrees seemed like dropping into hell…. as everyone still able to breathe immediately says -“at least it’s a dry heat.”... Anyway, VMworld inside was much nicer - ... For us analysts, VMworld is work after all! We had a great set of meetings with a number of our past (and hopefully future) clients at the show, and got some great inside scoop on VMware plans during their analyst sessions. Past the top line news and keynote announcements, here are a few deeper notes of interest.,,,

IBM Spectrum Protect Plus Simplifies Data Protection for Virtual Environments

Modern organizations want simple data protection that is easily accessible to VM and application administrators. This fact was highlighted in a recent Taneja Group Survey, where over 40% of participants indicated “simple to manage” is the most critical data protection factor when selecting a data protection solution.

HPE Welcomes You To The Machine!

HPE has publicly rolled out their “The Machine” prototype, carrying 160TB of fabric-attached memory, 1280 ARM cores and 100Gb/s fiber interconnects.  Ok, so this is a whole lot of memory!  But it’s not just about memory.

In both HPC and big data analytics, and in increasingly converged applications that combine analytics with operational processes at scale, the game is all about increasing data locality to compute. Ten years ago we Hadoop unlocked massive data scale processing for certain classes of problems by “mapping/reducing” compute and big data across a cluster of commodity servers.  We might look at that as the “airy” and “cloudy” kind of approach.  Then Spark came about and showed how we really need to tackle big data sets in memory, though still across a cluster architecture.

Here today we see the bleeding edge of what aggressive hardware engineering can do to practically cram massive memory and large numbers of cores all together - compressing and converging compute and big data as densely as possible - in some ways a throwback nod to the old mainframe. Folks with highly-interconnected HPC-style modeling and simulation application needs that haven’t been well served by commodity scale-out (i.e. affordable) big data analytic architectures are going to want to look closely at this development. (and in fact, HPE has modified a Spark version to make different internal assumptions to match this new architecture to great affect (15x at least)).....
