Designing Shared Storage for Hadoop, Elastic, Kafka, TensorFlow. As analytics environments like Hadoop, Elastic, Kafka and TensorFlow continue to scale, organizations need to find a way to create a shared infrastructure that can deliver the bandwidth, flexibility, and efficiency that these environments need. In a recent Storage Intensity podcast, Tom Lyon, founder and chief scientist of DriveScale and George Crump, Lead Analyst of Storage Switzerland, sat down to discuss a wide range of subjects including Non-Volatile Memory express, (NVMe), Non-Volatile Memory express over Fabric (NVMe-oF), and Composable Infrastructures.
Predictions for 2020 from DriveScale included in the Storage Newsletter online publication, featuring Private Cloud, Smart Nic and Kubernetes.
Kubernetes is rapidly emerging as the standard for application management in the data center.
What if you could create an automated, elastic, cloud-like experience in your own data center for a fraction of the cost of the public cloud?
Toshiba’s CD5 and CM5 NVMe data centre SSDs are certified for use with DriveScale composable infrastructure. This infrastructure composes servers on demand from pools of available driveless servers and storage resources.
Modern workloads such as Hadoop, Kafka and machine learning are demanding in terms of the volume of data that must be processed, the speed at which that data much be processed, and the fact that their capacity and performance requirements are both variable and unpredictable. Read how DriveScale can help solve for this.
Hyperscale architectures typically sacrifice resource efficiency for performance by using direct attached storage instead of a shared storage solution. That lost efficiency though, means the organization is spending money on excess compute, graphics processing units (GPUs) and storage capacity that it doesn’t need.
Why composable infrastructure goes hand in hand with private cloud. Some companies are opting out of SAN upgrades or costly converged systems in favor of composable architecture to build server and storage on the fly.
Data Center Knowledge shares an industry perspective titled Introducing the Composable Data Center.
Storage Review DriveScale, Inc. announced the next evolution of its Composable Platform, which includes support for NVMe over TCP.
