DSSD: Don’t try to attach a horse hitch to a Tesla

@sakacc shared a glance at what DSSD is doing during the last EMC World: DSSD Tech Preview (EMC World Day 3). This post is named based on the post’s lines”.. and if you REALLY need it to dress up as a storage target (a LUN/filesystem) that’s possible too… but frankly that’s like attaching a horse hitch to a Tesla.” DSSD is optimized to get the best performance through a direct … Continue reading DSSD: Don’t try to attach a horse hitch to a Tesla

#Ceph 0.87 earlier perf results KVM 2.0 & libvirt1.2.2 #Openstack Icehouse

Hello, after almost a year working with Ceph in our cloud solution koolfit.mx … we are pleased to share some earlier test performance results, we are on the way to prepare something nicer, however, I’ve got a not so weird impulse to publish it despite those numbers could change later – We’ve concluded to do some adjustments to the platform, based on this first round of results… we are sure … Continue reading #Ceph 0.87 earlier perf results KVM 2.0 & libvirt1.2.2 #Openstack Icehouse

Public “Infrastructure as a Service” has got commodity (revisited)

After revisiting one of my first post: “IaaS has got commodity“, I must to say that I was so damn RIGHT! – excuse my incredible lack of modesty -. Weeks ago my boss has told to the KIO’s board that I have two daemons – or maybe angels, I don’t see the difference… Ups! I will burn in hell – over my shoulders fighting about who will bring me the best advice: … Continue reading Public “Infrastructure as a Service” has got commodity (revisited)

Would Bitcoin break the foreseen cloud’s adoption paradigm?

Now let’s go for some future-logistic (or maybe some tech-apocalypses) Based on the note “These Are the Hottest New Open Source Projects Right Now” and specifically in the section “Beyond Bitcoin”, I have to say projects like Storj, IPFS and OpenBazaar make my mind rolls. Bitcoin is a beautiful concept – some kind of altruist-  and I can think there millions, including myself, expecting what will … Continue reading Would Bitcoin break the foreseen cloud’s adoption paradigm?

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)

Beyond a datacenter and hardware fault tolerant strategy (part 2/3)

Ok, I’ve brought in my previous note a short overview how Tier IV datacenter are designed to deliver the best in class technology to take care of your IT stuff against any electrical or physical failure into the facility. Later on, I’ve mentioned if you want to get instances from any of our clouds, you bet that any of our configurations has got the required redundancy to support any … Continue reading Beyond a datacenter and hardware fault tolerant strategy (part 2/3)

Cutting-edge cloud tech is not based exclusively on #OpenStack

#OpenStack is a bunch of software’s pieces, right? Besides of #OpenStack brings so much resources to cover most of your needs to get a really enhanced cloud experience. You need to add more pieces and coding to fully fit your performance needs. Choose the right Hyper-Visor Let’s start choosing the Hyper-Visor. You can get KVM, Xen, Hyper-V or VMWare. Any of these options are OK. However, if you … Continue reading Cutting-edge cloud tech is not based exclusively on #OpenStack

OpenStack. Data protection (Racksha) | CHANGE as a Service

“However, it does not cover Ceph in this case and we all know that Ceph is the performance leader in Openstack. Racksha team! This is a request. Lets add Ceph into this project” Julio, thanks for sharing this note, Are you share Racksha is not independent on what storage you have below Cinder? via OpenStack. Data protection (Racksha) | CHANGE as a Service. Continue reading OpenStack. Data protection (Racksha) | CHANGE as a Service

What do I have to choose to efficiently store, protect and manage my private cloud’s data?

The amount of available storage systems in the market have increased in my radar during the last months therefore the complexity to choose one of them – I am personally afraid of choosing one now and regret it later, aren´t you? –  The storage ecosystem is changing so fast that probably if you select something now, the criterion that you have just used won’t work few months later. This new trend of software defined something that has blessed the storage field and now … Continue reading What do I have to choose to efficiently store, protect and manage my private cloud’s data?
