Echostreams Innovative Solutions, LLC today announced the proof-of-concept demo for an all-SSD-flash storage solution for high-performance-computing at International Supercomputing Conference 2014, reaching 2 million transactions per minute running Oracle RAC 12c Performance test. The benchmark test at Orange Silicon Valley consists of five commodity servers running Oracle 12c Real Application Cluster software, CacheIO FlashCache Appliance based on Echostreams patented FlacheSAN2 flash server, and commodity iSCSI array. For detailed configuration and test results, please visit http://www.cacheio.com/osv_benchmark. Besides high IOPs and tpmC, FlacheSAN2 also provides up to 170 Gbit/s throughput sustained random read.

“Many enterprises are looking to increase the performance of their mission critical databases to accelerate their business processes. The emerging all-flash storage arrays require a complete replacement of existing disk arrays, incurring high capital and data migration costs, as well as lacking in mature storage management features that customers have depended on for years. Server-side flash does not scale to cache all active data, making its latency and throughput profile more similar to that of spinning disks than flash memory,” said Bang Change, CEO of CacheIO. “CacheIO network cache scales to 23TB flash capacity per RU (Rack Unit) at one-fifth the cost of all-flash arrays, servicing all active data at sub millisecond latency while increasing disk array utilization from 30% to 80%. As a shared network resource, CacheIO flash cache allows service providers and enterprise customers to monetize performance by provisioning performance dynamically based on service level agreements.”
“We are always looking for emerging technology that can accelerate database performance and help us increase disk utilization and also preserve existing legacy storage investments to serve the ever increasing need for capacity. CacheIO has demonstrated one of the top Transactions-Per-Minute benchmark results accelerating low cost iSCSI SATA storage. To a service provider like Orange, it has the important benefit of provisioning performance based on SLAs, allowing us to monetize performance as a utility,” said Jérome Laudouar, VP, IT Infrastructure Technologies & Engineering of Orange.
“Storage used to be the bottleneck in supercomputing environment and is being neglected due to the limitation of rotating drives’ performance. With flash SSD technology maturing and the abundance of I/O bandwidth offered by the Intel Xeon server platforms, we are able to create unique and purpose-built solutions to improve and push the storage performance envelope to a new high. The FlacheSAN2 solution is designed specifically for SSD flash to address the performance bottleneck while increasing energy efficiency and storage density,” said Gene Lee, President and CEO of Echostreams Innovative Solutions. “Our FlacheSAN2 solution provides users twice the storage capacity and twice the performance while being able to maintain less CapEx and OpEx costs compared to any competing solution.”

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
