Research Areas

Cloud Platforms and Apps

Includes Cloud Platforms; IaaS, PaaS and SaaS; enabling infrastructure technologies; deployment types; and cloud development technologies and approaches.

This category covers all types of cloud platforms, including IaaS, PaaS and SaaS, along with all types of cloud deployments, such as private, public, hybrid and multi cloud. We cover enabling cloud infrastructure technologies in areas such as compute, storage and networking. This practice spans cloud apps development and deployment, including containers and microservices architectures, and the DevOps functions to manage them. We look at cloud platforms in the context of displacing traditional on-premises IT infrastructure and enabling new on-demand apps and services, providing customers with greater flexibility and agility. Though cloud is growing rapidly, we believe that cloud and traditional datacenter infrastructure will co-exist for many years to come, with companies electing to maintain some of their IT workloads and processes on-premises for reasons such as security, control and/or cost. We address the pain points and opportunities resulting from this transformation, to help vendors and end users optimize their cloud investments.

ExaGrid Debuts Grid Protected Storage - Product Profile

ExaGrid, a startup located in Westborough, MA, announced on November 17, 2003 an architecture for storing and managing files that combines a variety of technologies to essentially create a self managing, self healing NAS product that scales simultaneously in the dimensions of capacity and performance and offers built in data protection. The product based on this architecture will be delivered in Q1, 2004. We think the architecture has considerable merit and the product will have a serious positive impact on the customer.

NAS Market Research - Technology In Depth

In 2003, if one trend is emerging in NAS, it is that it has become a diverse, increasingly robust technology platform for enterprise storage. We believe the NAS market is at the early stages of several broad-based pushes in functionality that will bring this technology base into every corner of the data center, from easily deployed and manageable departmental filers to enterprise class appliances and file services atop SANs.

MaXXan ships MVX320 - Company Profile

MaXXan this month became the first vendor to actually GA an intelligent director class product. While the architecture is sound and the product has most of the required features for such a product, and the use of standard OTS network processors, rather than custom designed ASICs gives them the ability to upgrade and ship faster than others, MaXXan finds itself in a very interesting position.

Voltaire Announces iSCSI on Steroids - Product Profile

InfiniBand is becoming the unquestioned interconnect for high performance computing and clustered databases. It will be used extensively in the datacenters of tomorrow. To complete the picture, InfiniBand needs connectivity to shared storage. While several protocols are viable for carrying block storage traffic over the InfiniBand fabric, Voltaire’s choice of iSCSI RDMA has very interesting implications.
