Wikibon is updating its research on storage integration with VMware. Thank you for taking a few minutes to share your experiences with your peers. All participants are kept anonymous and results will be shared freely on the Wikibon site in August.
Today I am extremely excited to announce VMware’s acquisition of Nicira, a 5-year-old company that has pioneered software-defined networking (SDN) and is the leader in networking virtualization for heterogeneous infrastructure environments and clouds. When combined with the outstanding networking team and technologies already at VMware, I believe we have the same opportunity to do for networking what we’ve already done for servers and many other parts of the datacenter. In fact, the people, passions, ecosystem, and industry-transforming opportunity reminds me very much of the early days of VMware’s server virtualization efforts!
There’s no question that the amount of value being extracted from data is increasing – almost every customer I speak with is building new technology to gain new or competitive insights from tapping large volumes or rates of data. In the last few posts, I have introduced VMware technologies and products that provide data services to new applications.
We see four major axes along which data requirements are stretching the limits of traditional approaches to data analysis:
The amount of data being stored is growing at an unprecedented rate, and much of this data is either unstructured or semi-structured. Database systems often have
We have all had to wait in a line or two in our life, whether it is the dreaded TSA checkpoint line at the airport or the equally dreaded DMV registration line, waiting in line is just a fact of life. This is true in the storage world too; storage I/O’s have plenty of lines that they have to wait in. In this article, we examine the various queues in the virtualized storage stack and discuss the when, how, and why of modifying them.
Queues are necessary for several reasons but primary they are used to allow for sharing of a resource and to allow for concurrency. By using queues, vSphere is able to allow for multiple
