An architecture trying to respond a least 10000 concurrent connections per second, is trying to solve the C10K problem, even if this is so last decade is still breaking servers, architectures and configurations, giving to sysadmins real headaches and not always because of real connections, also for basic DDoS attacks (pretty much is the same concept: lots and lots of new… Continue reading The real problem behind highly transactional applications

Beyond a datacenter and hardware fault tolerant strategy (part 3/3)

Finally, we are in the last part. My previous note has almost finished with the sentence: “Most of the customers defines their application instances based on this non-redundant logical architecture”. The next picture illustrate the exact meaning of this. All the redundancy at the facility/hardware means nothing when you lose a virtual instance cause to a human mistake. You will have to recover it from the last … Continue reading Beyond a datacenter and hardware fault tolerant strategy (part 3/3)

#EMCWorld14: Totally Simple HyperVisor-Converged Cloud Experience with VMWare Virtual SAN

EMC is changing the way to eat storage through ScaleIO as It has been exposed in my last note.  There are also companies like Nutanix that has been shaken the market with this new trend of Full Cloud Converged Stack for a while. However,  VMWare has started to show out its Virtual SAN since the last VMWorld as its response to this so mentioned Software Define Storage (SDS) … Continue reading #EMCWorld14: Totally Simple HyperVisor-Converged Cloud Experience with VMWare Virtual SAN
