To repeat a commonly used adage, today every company is a technology company. Regardless of whether you are making computer chips or paper pulp, you are using technology, software and IT infrastructure to bring your…Continue

Over the last decade or so, object storage use cases have evolved considerably as they replace traditional file and block use cases. Specifically the need to work with small data objects is becoming commonplace. Yes, there’s still plenty of large objects but small objects are becoming more prevalent than large for specific workloads and application environments.
Traditional object storage systems were designed for large objects that were infrequently accessed. With today’s…Continue

Milvus is an open-source vector similarity search engine powered by approximate nearest neighbor search (ANNS) algorithms such as Faiss, NMSLIB, and Annoy.
To make a vector search more intuitive and easy to use, we introduced TableFile and metadata in Milvus.
In this article, we will mainly describe how vector data are recorded in the memory of Milvus, and how these records are maintained.
Below are our main design goals:

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
