There are two forces that are fundamentally remaking the technology landscape today. One is Kubernetes and the other is high performance Object Storage. They are powering (or are shaped by, depending on your perspective) modern, data-rich applications that include AI/ML and application logs. Either way, modern applications need Kubernetes and Object Storage and Kubernetes and Object Storage owe their rise in part to these same modern applications.
They are symbiotic and they are…Continue

JSON has established itself as the "lingua franca" of the web. As such the parsing performance of JSON is hugely important for many applications. Despite the simple and human-friendly nature of JSON, it is not a technically trivial format to parse at high speeds.
Recently some new designs have been presented one of which is …Continue

Kubernetes has fundamentally altered the traditional application development and deployment patterns. Application development teams can now develop, test and deploy their apps in days, across different environments, all within their Kubernetes clusters. Previous generations of technology typically took weeks if not months.
This acceleration is possible due to the abstraction that Kubernetes brings to the table, i.e. it deals with underlying details of…Continue

At the time of its inception, it had a meaningful role to play as a high-throughput, fault-tolerant distributed file system. The secret sauce was data locality.
By co-locating compute and data on the same nodes, HDFS overcame the limitations of slow network access to data. The…Continue
