I can’t help but enjoy reading some of the comments, debates and other various blog articles on optical storage technologies, especially on technology durability and media longevity, even more when compared to tape storage for long-term digital archiving or as a slightly active data repository. Back in November 2011, I wrote a blog on the [...]

Horizontal-UVM – Step 1: Setup and Copy-less Data Distribution So it’s been about a month since my last post, sorry about that, but I’ve been working on several exciting projects that has me quite booked up as far as time goes.

McBlu-ray I have a soft spot for disruptive innovation or game-changing technology. I like to see the establishment tossed around and turned upside-down a bit. Not from an anarchist point-of-view, but from a change-is-good perspective.

The challengers are the  dynamic duo of FC/SAS interfaced Solid State Disks and high capacity – good enough performance – SATA interfaced [...]

YAAA! – Yet Another Automobile Analogy It’s dangerous for me to own one which is why I drive a truck, but I love fast cars. Whether production, stock, or home made, fast cars are always intriguing, challenging and sexy. I especially enjoy reading facts like this from Car and Driver, “…the Veyron’s fuel consumption at [...]

Makes about as much sense as IP over avian carriers.  Seriously if I look on the Top500 super computer list I can see an emerging trend towards hybrid/many core computing with the combination of vertical and horizontal scaling — sometimes called Cartesian scaling or scale-up and scale-out.  There is still a lingering hangover in the [...]

  Storage Fusion – StoraFgUeSION – SfTuOsRiAoGnE “HybridStorage” refers to the mix of flash and magnetic storage medias blended together to increase performance and efficiency. This particular effort is part of the HybridStorage Alliance to promote and educate the industry on the benefits and advantages of this approach. While I’m not personally involved in this [...]
