We Can No Longer Contain Containers!

Depsite naysayers (you know who you are!) I’ve been saying this is the year for containers, and half way into 2016 it’s looking like I’m right. The container community is maturing enterprise grade functionality, perhaps modeled on virtualization predecessors, extremely rapidly. ContainerX is one of those interesting solutions that fills in a lot of gaps for enterprises looking to stand up containers in production. In fact, they claim to be the “vSphere for Containers”.

Unifying Big Data Through Virtualized Data Services - Rewrites the Storage Stack

One of the more interesting new companies to arrive on the big data storage scene is The team has designed a whole new, purpose-built storage stack that can store and serve the same master data in multiple formats, at high performance and in parallel streaming speeds to multiple different kinds of big data applications. This promises to obliterate the current spaghetti data flows with many moving parts, numerous transformation and copy steps, and Frankenstein architectures required to currently stitch together increasingly complex big data workflows. We’ve seen enterprises need to build environments that commonly span from streaming ingest and real time processing through interactive query and into larger data lake and historical archive based analysis, and end up making multiple data copies in multiple storage formats in multiple storage services.

Diamanti Reveals Hyperconverged Scale-out Appliances for Containers

Diamanti has recently rolled out their brand new hyperconverged “container” appliances. Why would containers, supposedly able to be fluidly hosted just about anywhere, need a specially built host? Kubernetes might take care of CPU allotment, but there are still big obstacles for naked containers in a production data center, especially as containers are now being lined up to host far more than simple stateless micro-services.  Now their real-world storage and networking needs have to be matched, aligned, and managed or the whole efficiency opportunity can be easily lost….Diamanti has charged in here with a clustering host node design…
