Links of the day 19/11/2015: #ARM rack scale infrastructure fabric, Canonical ByoHW #Cloud software and Next Gen #Bigdata Storage

  • X-Tend : Applied micro get into the rack scale computing market with its ARM server and now the fabric to enable and support dis-aggregation of the resources. What is interesting there is since the ARM processor are more nimble in a certain sens it might make them more suitable for this paradigm than the big Intel processor. And if you throw into the mix hybrid and heterogeneous processors might end up having a better fit as you can more easily tailor the resource to your need as well as the power consumption coupled with it.
  • Autopilot : canonical private ByoHW cloud solution (more about that in another post).
  • Pyro: A Spatial-Temporal Big-Data Storage System for high resolution geometry queries and dynamic hotspots.
