Links of the day 18/05/2015: NVM biblio , Author of Pegasus and Heracles PhD dissertation, Container for #apple #OSX
  • Pegasus and Heracles : PhD defense of David Lo presenting his result in data-center orchestration system. He developed the Pegasus and Heracles platform for Google which resulted in significant power consumption reduction as well as resources usage efficiency increase. My guess is that Google is probably running between 13x and 15x more efficient than classic data-center and the gap is growing. I m not really sure that the whole container craze is actually improving the efficiency side as fragmentation often mean more complex and difficult orchestration. Ha almost forgot the PhD defense slides are here
  • NVMDB : comprehensive survey of the (at last count) 340 non-volatile memory technology papers published between 2000 and 2014 in International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits (VLSI Technology, VLSI Circuits), and International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM). The resulting data set provides a clear picture of how these memory technologies have evolved over time. [ Online Biblio ]
  • xhyve : Mac fanatic rejoice, you thought you avoided the container craze so far. But fear no more here comes the lightweight virtualization solution for OS X in all its glory. CoreOS is already talking about supporting it
