Flash is coming to the data center. Contrary to perception 18 months ago, now this seems to be accepted as ‘common knowledge.’ There is still much discussion around what that flash will look like and in what form it will be consumed. I plan to write a series of blogs describing the unique challenges involved in building large flash Memory Arrays and some of the decisions made along the road. A good place to start with is the “let’s build it myself” group of folks and the challenges they will encounter. Continue reading Flash in the Data Center
As a company that leverages our expertise of Virtualization in order to help our customers achieve efficiencies in mission centric applications and accelerate their path towards cloud computing, it made sense for us to dive deep into Flash Memory Arrays. We think the following information from a company who we continue to be impressed with is something our customers and followers need to know about. Continue reading Violin speeds up Cloud Applications
Having just landed a DoD contract that focuses on the acceleration and optimum performance of MYSQL, the following information was of great interest to us at RTGX Storage. With our focus on Big Data Analytics and Cloud solutions such as those from Violin are always at the top of our list. Continue reading Making MYSQL Faster
Analysis based on timely, relevant, and high quality data unlocks the business value of big data. Businesses know that analyzing more data in a shorter amount of time results in a competitive advantage. Violin Memory Arrays provide the combination of consistent low latency and scalability to ensure that storage performance accelerates the process of extracting information from vast volumes of data. Continue reading Violin Memory — benefits of Big Data Analytics
Enterprise Flash drives are up to 30x faster than hard disk drives
EMC® Enterprise Flash drives (EFDs) store data using Flash memory and contain no moving parts. As a result, retrieving Oracle application data from EFDs is dramatically faster as seek times associated with traditional, spinning Fibre Channel disk are drastically reduced. Continue reading Increase Oracle Database performance with EMC Enterprise Flash drives
We had the best intentions at RTGX and were all set to attend the Supercomputing conference in Seattle but – Thanksgiving and several other priorities diverted us. Fortunately for us EMC was present and posted this most excellent Blog entry. RTGX is an EMC Reseller and Integrator. Continue reading Supercomputing Conference
CloudSigma has become the first established cloud provider to add solid-state-drive storage to its public cloud computing service. SSDs (aka flash memory) are well known for their ability to significantly increase storage I/O performance and decrease power consumption when...
MapReduce was invented by Google in 2004, made into the Hadoop open source project by Yahoo! in 2007, and now is being used increasingly as a massively parallel data processing engine for Big Data. MapReduce allows programmers to express...
