A SQL Sequel Called TED - the Distributed TransLattice Elastic Database

While the focus in databases recently has been on NoSQL most enterprise applications still have mandatory requirements for relational databases. However, businesses are feeling pressured to evolve their transactional databases to enable highly available, "local" application access to globally consistent data. The TransLattice Elastic Database (TED) is a fully ACID/SQL relational implementation is designed to be logically and geographically distributed...as appliances, vm's, and in the cloud...

In Memory Big Data Heats Up With Apache Ignite

Recently we posted about GridGain contributing their core in-memory solution to the Apache Ignite project. While this is still incubating, it's clear that this was a good move for GridGrain, and a win for the big data/BI community in general. Today Apache Ignite drops its v1.0 release candidate with some new features added in like built-in support for jCache and an autoloader to help migrate data and schema in from existing SQL databases (e.g. Oracle, MySQL, Postgres, DB2, Microsoft SQL, etc.).

Nutanix XCP For Demanding Enterprise Workloads: Making Infrastructure Invisible for Tier-1 Ent. Apps

Virtualization has matured and become widely adopted in the enterprise market. Approximately three in every five physical servers are deployed in a virtualized environment. After two waves of virtualization, it is safe to assume that a high percentage of business applications are running in virtualized environments. The applications last to deploy into the virtualized environment were considered the tier-1 apps. Examples of these include CRM and ERP environments running SAP NetWeaver, Oracle database and applications, and Microsoft SQL Server. In many 24X7 service industries, Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint are also considered tier-1 applications.

The initial approach to building virtualized environments that can handle these tier-1 applications was to build highly tuned infrastructure using best of breed three-tier architectures where compute, storage and networking were selected and customized for each type of workload. Newer shared storage systems have increasingly adopted virtualized all flash and hybrid architectures, which has allowed organizations to mix a few tier-1 workloads within the same traditional infrastructure and still meet stringent SLA requirements.

Enter now the new product category of enterprise-capable HyperConverged Infrastructure (HCI). With HCI, the traditional three-tier architecture has been collapsed into a single software-based system that is purpose-built for virtualization. In these solutions, the hypervisor, compute, storage, and advanced data services are integrated into an x86 industry-standard building block. These modern scale-out hyperconverged systems combine a flash-first software-defined storage architecture with VM-centric ease-of-use that far exceeds any three-tier approach on the market today. These attributes have made HCI very popular and one of the fastest growing product segments in the market today.

HCI products have been very popular with medium sized companies and specific workloads such as VDI or test and development. After a few years of hardening and maturity, are these products ready to tackle enterprise tier-1 applications?  In this paper we will take a closer look at Nutanix Xtreme Computing Platform (XCP) and explore how its capabilities stack up to tier-1 application workload requirements.

Nutanix was a pioneer in HCI and is widely considered the market and visionary leader of this rapidly growing segment. Nutanix has recently announced the next step - a vision of the product beyond HCI. With this concept they plan to make the entire virtualized infrastructure invisible to IT consumers. This will encompass all three of the popular hypervisors: VMware, Hyper-V and their own Acropolis Hypervisor. Nutanix has enabled app mobility between different hypervisors, a unique concept across the converged system and HCI alike. This Solution Profile will focus on the Nutanix XCP platform and key capabilities that make it suitable for teir-1 enterprise applications. With the most recent release, we have found compelling features appropriate for most tier-1 application workloads. Combined with the value proposition of web-scale modular architecture this provides an easy pathway to data-center transformation that businesses of all sizes should take advantage of.

The Hyperconverged Data Center: Nutanix Customers Explain Why They Replaced Their EMC SANS

Taneja Group spoke with several Nutanix customers in order to understand why they switched from EMC storage to the Nutanix platform. All of the respondent’s articulated key architectural benefits of hyperconvergence versus a traditional 3-tier solutions. In addition, specific Nutanix features for mission-critical production environments were often cited.

Hyperconverged systems have become a mainstream alternative to traditional 3-tier architecture consisting of separate compute, storage and networking products. Nutanix collapses this complex environment into software-based infrastructure optimized for virtual environments. Hypervisor, compute, storage, networking, and data services run on scalable nodes that seamlessly scale across massive virtual assets. Hyperconvergence offers a key value proposition over 3-tier architecture:  instead of deploying, managing and integrating separate components – storage, servers, networking, data services, and hypervisors – these components are combined into a modular high performance system.

The customers we interviewed operate in very different industries. In common, they all maintained data centers undergoing fundamental changes, typically involving an opportunity to refresh some portion of their 3-tier infrastructure. This enabled the evaluation of hyperconvergence in supporting those changes. Customers interviewed found that Nutanix hyperconvergence delivered benefits in the areas of scalability, simplicity, value, performance, and support. If we could use one phrase to explain why Nutanix’ is winning over EMC customers in the enterprise market it would be “Ease of Everything.” Nutanix works, and works consistently with small and large clusters, in single and multiple datacenters, with specialist or generalist IT support, and across hypervisors.

The five generations of Nutanix products span many years of product innovation. Web-scale architecture has been the key to Nutanix platform’s enterprise capable performance, simplicity and scalability. Building technology like this requires years of innovation and focus and is not an add-on for existing products and architectures.

The modern data center is quickly changing. Extreme data growth and complexity are driving data center directors toward innovative technology that will grow with them. Given the benefits of Nutanix web-scale architecture – and the Ease of Everything – data center directors can confidently adopt Nutanix as their partner in data center transformation just as the following EMC customers did.
