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.

Agile Big Data Clusters: DriveScale Enables Bare Metal Cloud

We’ve been writing recently about the hot, potentially inevitable, trend, towards a dense IT infrastructure in which components like CPU cores and disks are not only commoditized, but deployed in massive stacks or pools (with fast matrixing switches between them). Then a layered provisioning solution can dynamically compose any desired “physical” server or cluster out of those components. Conceptually this becomes the foundation for a bare-metal cloud. DriveScale today announces their agile architecture with this approach, aimed first at solving big data multi-cluster operational challenges.

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…
