A new gen for NexGen?

NexGen was one of the first real flash/hybrid with QoS storage solutions, and it leveraged PCIe flash (i.e. Fusion-IO cards) to great effect. Which we suppose had something to do with why Fusion-IO bought them up a couple of years ago. But whatever plans were in the works were likely messed up when SanDisk in-turn bought Fusion-IO because we haven’t heard form NexGen folks in awhile - not a good sign for a storage solution. Well, SanDisk has now spun NexGen back out on its own. While it may be sink or swim time for the NexGen team, we think it’s a good opportunity for all involved.

App-Aware Storage Evolves: Oracle ZS4-4 NAS Sees 10,000+ DB Containers

We’ve been following Oracle closely with their recent FS1 launch and now the roll-out a newly upgraded ZS4-4 NAS appliance. ... The performance improvements here alone make the ZS4-4 a heavy weight storage contender. Even without the amazing performance stats, the ZS4-4 is worth looking at in depth to understand the evolution of how storage in our book is going to increasingly get smarter about how to best serve downstream applications. In this case, the ZS4-4 now has direct support and visibility into how Oracle 12c “containers” are deployed within it. This pluggable database approach shares key database server overhead and can scale 5x more than just aggregating separate database instances next to each other, using much less memory as it scales. ...

IoT Goes Real-Time, Gets Predictive - Glassbeam Launches Spark-based Machine Learning

In-Memory processing was all the rage at Strata 2014 NY last month, and the hottest word was Spark! Spark is big data scale-out cluster solution that provides a way to speedily analyze large data sets in-memory using a “resilient distributed data” design for fault-tolerance.  It can deploy into its own optimized cluster, or ride on top of Hadoop 2.0 using YARN… I haven’t done justice to Spark itself and perhaps its biggest onrushing use case - taming the real-time data from from the Internet of Things (IoT)...
