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

Enabling cost-effective terabyte main memory along with third-party observations of a “profound” change in storage, Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory modules change the way we think about memory capacity, tiered memory, out-of-core algorithms, storage speed, and essentially what we can do on a computational “fat node” and with persistent storage.
With a growing ecosystem of more than 50 OEMs, ISVs and cloud service providers are exploring what is possible given the touted three-fold…Continue

Pooled, also referred to as “converged”, clusters in a unified data environment support disparate workload better than separate, siloed clusters. Vendors now provide direct support for converged clusters to run key HPC-AI-HPDA (AI, HPC, and High Performance Data Analytic) workloads.
The success of workload optimized compute servers has created the need for converged clusters as organizations have generally added workload optimized clusters piecemeal to support their disparate AI, HPC,…Continue

In my previous blog on the Hopscotch and Robots simulation environment, I discussed the use of structural data extracted from hypothetical and real-life organizational events. In the current blog, I will be briefly covering conceptual issues more focused on the nature of the structural data itself including its theoretical significance.
Structural data holds information about the relationship between events.…Continue
