Satellite-based data centers with room for petabytes of data may start orbiting Earth as early as 2019. But when it comes to keeping secrets safe from the long arm of the law, the black void may not be far enough.
We’ve been writing recently about the hot, potentially inevitable, trend, towards a dense IT infrastructure in which components like CPU cores and disks are not only commoditized, but deployed in massive stacks or pools (with fast matrixing switches between them). Then a layered provisioning solution can dynamically compose any desired “physical” server or cluster out of those components. Conceptually this becomes the foundation for a bare-metal cloud. DriveScale today announces their agile architecture with this approach, aimed first at solving big data multi-cluster operational challenges.Read More
All you storage geeks and science fiction fans rejoice! If Cloud Constellation gets its way, you’ll soon be able to directly hybridize your dreary earthbound data center storage with actually above-the-clouds storage. Yep, protect your sensitive data by replicating it to true satellite storage. Only James Bond with a spare Shuttle would be able to hack those things. Just how far fetched is this idea? ... Actually not that far fetched. As audacious as the plan is for an individual startup, the actual tech involved is not that hard to fathom - laser uplinks/crosslinks and satellites full of solid state….Read More
Innovative approach revolutionizes the way IT users visualize data center performance, configuration and capacity issues.
It’s time to start thinking about massive amounts of flash in the enterprise data center. I mean PBs of flash for the biggest, baddest, fastest data-driven applications out there. This amount of flash requires an HPC-capable storage solution brought down and packaged for enterprise IT management. Which is where Data Domain Networks (aka DDN) is stepping up. Perhaps too quietly, they have been hard at work pivoting their high-end HPC portfolio into the enterprise space. Today they are rolling out a massively scalable new flash-centric Flashscale 14KXi storage array that will help them offer complete, comprehensive single-vendor big data workflow solutions - from the fastest scratch through the biggest throughput parallel file systems into the largest distributed object storage archives.Read More
Iron Mountain was one of the first players in cloud storage, but exited the market early on. Now, it’s back with a resurrected archive service based on EMC’s ECS.
