What do these three topics have in common? Read on… This story started for me 4 years ago when I found myself in Barcelona during the 2006 World Cup, where I had the opportunity to hang out in a cool local Spanish pub while Spain was playing France in the first game of the “Round [...]

With the hype in the market around cloud, it’s no wonder customers don’t know where to begin or which road to follow. That is exactly why Hitachi Data Systems is introducing new cloud solutions to help customers take a low risk approach to adopting cloud at their own pace.

Okay now that I have grabbed your attention, I want to open up the discussion on this topic.  Specifically, I’ve been watching as IB has been put into several appliances of late: Oracle Exadata, Clusterix KVS, etc.  There are a series of well oiled uses too such as RDMA for HPC, NetApp’s usage for internode [...]

When Congress promised physicians and hospitals last year billions of dollars in incentive payments if they adopted electronic health record (EHR) systems, it attached some proverbial strings called “meaningful use.”

Just gave my short talk titled “Scale-up/Scale/out.”  Started the discussion on where the HPC world was 8 years ago: scale out only architectures ruled until the NEC Earth simulator changed the game reminding people about scaling in multiple dimensions.  I further tied that into how Hitachi is attacking three dimensions of scaling: up, deep/virtual, and [...]

In case you missed it the second fastest super computer in the world is based on hybrid compute technology.   It incorporates Intel and NVidia processors to achieve extreme scale and performance.  If you look at the number of cores, 120640,  you will see that it has a little more than half of the number [...]

During the week of June 14th, I’ll be in Santa Clara as a part of HDS Day or HDS Blogger Day or what we are calling it formally “HDS Geek Day 0.9.”  We’ve invited several bloggers to attend in person so that we can cover Hitachi’s capabilities and prowess (take a look at the screenshot [...]
