Podcast: Composing Infrastructure for Elastic, Hadoop, Kafka and Cassandra

May 29, 2019 | 1:00pm PT/ 3:00pm CT

Hyperscale applications like Elastic, Hadoop, Kafka and Cassandra typically use a shared nothing design where each node in the compute cluster operates on its data. Hyperscale architectures, to maximize storage IO performance, keep data local to the compute node processing the job. The problem is that the organization loses the efficiency of shared storage infrastructure. As the hyperscale architecture scales, overprovisioned and underutilized compute, GPU and storage resources cost the organization money!

Join us and Storage Switzerland for a 15 minute webinar to learn how composable infrastructure can provide both high performance and high efficiency.

In 15 minutes learn:
– The challenges facing hyperscale architectures
– The true cost of underutilized compute and storage
– Why fast Ethernet networks are good for your data
– How a composable architecture brings scale, performance and cost efficiency to your data center

Vault 19

Vault ’19 (co-located with Fast ’19)

February 25-26, 2019 | Boston, MA

Come hear Brian Pawlowski, CTO, speak at this year’s Vault ’19. His talk titled “Design of a Composable Infrastructure Platform” will be on February 26th, 1:30pm.  Register Today! 

Details of his talk:

Composable Infrastructure in this talk is a method for the dynamic creation of secure application clusters from disaggregated compute, storage and networking. The problems facing such a solution are ones of availability, durability, scalability, performance and most importantly correctness.

The target applications are widely deployed data analytics and NoSQL database applications that can consist of 100’s to 1,000’s of compute nodes with 10,000’s of disk for each application in a secure cluster instance.

The talk consists of five parts. We present a very brief description to the user view of creating virtual clusters on a composable infrastructure platform. We follow this with a short description of the problems and requirements for the platform. That motivates the bulk of the presentation describing the state machine design for a correct and durable orchestration platform that scales to 100,000’s of managed elements. Select code and data structures are used to point out implementation details. The fourth part of the talk describes how standard Linux networking and storage subsystems are managed and used to create virtual clusters (including NVME over Fabric), and the open source components used by the platform to achieve scale, availability, and security. The final part of the talk details key failure scenarios and the recovery mechanisms that maintain correctness and availability.
