Links of the day 15/12/2015 : GCHQ graph DB, Cloud Benchmark and racetrack memory

  • Gaffer : GHCQ graph engine , note that they release v1 and work on v2. This give you an idea of the technical gap between what we see and what they use.
  • Racetrack Memory : this technology has been promised for more than 15 years. It might need 15 more years before it comes to fruition and probably at that time be already obsolete. Lets hope not.
  • PerfKit Benchmarker : cloud benchmarker which supports 9 cloud providers, including AliCloud, Amazon Web Services, CloudStack, DigitalOcean, Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes, Microsoft Azure, OpenStack, Rackspace, as well as the machine under your desk or in your datacenter. It fully automates 26 benchmarks covering compute, network and storage primitives, common applications like Tomcat and Cassandra, as well as cloud-specific services like object storage and managed MySQL.
