In this slidecast, Peter ffoulkes from TheInfoPro presents results from a recent study on Servers and Virtualization markets. As an analyst with a deep background in HPC, ffoulkes does a great job of bringing this research into perspective with high performance computing markets.
TheInfoPro’s latest report focusing on Servers and Virtualization is set to be released on 1/8. I am writing to see if you would be interested in a pre-interview with Peter ffoulkes, lead analyst on the report. Conducted during the second half of 2012, TheInfoPro study identifies key initiatives of senior server infrastructure managers and examines market factors and major players. This annual study is based on extensive live interviews with server professionals and primary decision-makers at large and midsize enterprises in North America and Europe.”

The Globus Toolkit is a fundamental enabling technology for building grids that allow distributed computing power, storage resources, scientific instruments, and other tools to be shared securely across corporate, institutional, and geographic boundaries.
In this slidecast, ProfitBricks USA CEO Bob Rizika describes how the world has changed since the first generation of Clouds and that high performance computing today can be a viable Infrastructure as a Service.
What’s different now in Cloud computing? It’s not first generation difficult-to-use, costly, slow and limiting – but second-generation Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). We now live in a world where instances can be connected at 80Gb/s, and instances can have 196GB of RAM and 48 cores. The real clouds are arriving. And despite what some might think, they are priced and packaged for the masses.

In this slidecast, Loggly CEO Charlie Oppenheimer describes why the company is the world’s most popular cloud-based Log Management Service.
Loggly has a rich set of features that makes log management fun and easy, and being 100% cloud-based means our focus in on scale and speed so you can focus on your application not hosting and hardware. While demand for storing all those logs is accelerating along with all the data being generated, the technology behind the storage and processing of data also continues to accelerate. Within a few months time, the technology we are developing at Loggly will provide companies a way to peek into these large volumes of log data – where they couldn’t before – and allow them to see exactly what their users are doing with all that big data.
In this video, Samplify CEO Alan Evans presents: APAX: Lowering the Cost of Big Science, Big Data, and Cloud Computing.
Multi-core CPUs are hitting the memory wall,” said Al Wegener, CTO and founder of Samplify. “With each new process node, the number of processor cores on a die can double with Moore’s Law, but the throughput of memory, I/O, and storage fails to keep up with this growth. Hence, the performance of multi-core applications is increasingly memory, I/O, and storage bound. APAX is the only solution that accelerates the throughput DDRx, SAS/SATA, SSD, PCIe, Ethernet, and Infiniband, by up to six times.”
Samplify will demonstrate the APAX profiler and hardware IP at the SC12 conference in booth #4151.
Amazon is pitching Glacier as a solution for customers who don’t need frequent access to their data and can handle retrieval times of several hours. The big enticements are low, low cost — as little as a penny per gigabyte per month — and durability. Dan and Henry weed through each facet of Amazon’s marketing claims and — well — rip each one to shreds. Henry thinks this is aimed at the unsuspecting/unfortunate home or small business consumer, as anyone with technology expertise will run far, far away from Glacier. Dan compares it to the “Roach Motel” of storage: once you’re in, you can never get out. And don’t even get them started on the definition of “durable.”
Viewer tip: keep an eye on the “consecutive hours awake” timer at the bottom of the screen.
In this video, Connection Cloud COO Neil Blumenfield describes how the company makes make connecting to SaaS-based data easy.
The Connection Cloud shields the end-user or application developers from needing to understand all the different authentication methods, APIs and query languages of each SaaS application by literally translating the incoming SQL statements into each SaaS applications specific dialect.
In this slidecast, Ofer Bengal from Garantia Data presents an overview of the company’s fully-automated cloud service for hosting Memcached and Redis.
The Garantia Data Memcached Cloud was built from the ground up over a true Memcached cluster architecture and with a highly reliable infrastructure. We distribute your dataset across multiple shards in multiple nodes of our Memcached cluster and constantly monitor your shards to ensure optimal performance. When needed, we add more shards and nodes to your dataset so it can continuously and limitlessly scale. We have also added to our Memcached cluster replication, data persistence, backup and auto-failover capabilities that guarantee your dataset is always up and running.
