“Collaboretition” – a new paradigm for sustainability

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) blogs and newswires in the tech sector have recently been abuzz with the news that Tim Mohin (formerly with AMD, Intel & Apple) has been named the new Chief Executive of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the leading global framework for sustainability reporting. Equally interesting is the attention given to his most recent comments around the term “collaboretition.”

New server architectures will speed NVMe adoption

NVMe is breaking the storage bottleneck. You’ve likely heard the tales of its huge bandwidth and latency measured in microseconds instead of milliseconds. It’s close to your computing power and lightning-fast. You’ve heard about how it’s dramatically changing applications and performance expectations. But you may have also caught whispers about needing something new to support NVMe – something about next-gen servers, or a kind of special slot for NVMe drives. Does this mean you can’t get the benefits of NVMe today?

Need More From Your OLTP Platform?

An OLTP workload is one of the most demanding in the Enterprise. With OLTP, it seems that everything matters. Order processing rates matter. Average response time matters. Response consistency matters. Moreover, with changing datacenter economics and value metrics, the amount of space in the rack also matters. If OLTP matters to you, you probably know that SSDs can help.

You need a storage strategy. Here’s how to get started.

Having been around the IT block a few times in my career, it strikes me that the industry in general, and storage specifically, are cyclical in nature. From centralized mainframes, to distributed client/server implementations and back again, much of the forward motion depends on the technology available to support what are sometimes not new ideas, but better ways to innovate on their implementation. We’ve got to maximize the value of what we already have, while always keeping that watchful eye for what’s leading and bleeding, both technically and culturally.

How to give your big data the big performance it requires

We have a problem. A data problem. We have too much of it. Estimates are 163 zettabytes of data created by 2025. Zettabytes. Whoa. Data is not going anywhere, so now we are faced with the challenge of rethinking how we store it, manage it and deliver it.

Flashy OLTP: Amazing, Consistent Performance (and more power efficient, too!)

When I think about what matters in OLTP, the first thing that leaps to my head (and maybe some of yours too) is performance – raw performance. There’s nothing like super-speedy Orders Per Minute (OPM) to get some attention. The faster they go, the more we get, the better.

Release the Kraken!

How fast can a Ceph implementation go? As a Principal Storage Solutions Engineer with Micron, I am tasked with figuring that out. I was proud to announce Micron’s All-NVMe Ceph® reference architecture at the OpenStack Summit 2017 in Boston. It’s based on Red Hat® Ceph Storage 2.1 (Jewel 10.2) and it is crazy fast.
