[Links of the day] 29/04/2016 : End of numerical error, 504 Eth Drive Ceph Cluster, Modern Storage architecture

  • End of Numerical Error : Really cool concept of encoding of floating point number. It seems really promising , faster, lighter and significantly reduce error rate.. Unums should probably the net default encoding of the future [Julia implementation]. Ps : the non associative property for floats is really scary.
  • Ceph cluster with 504 ethernet drives : Well, its start to happen, and it might quickly take over all these pesky storage cluster out there. 
  • Modern Storage Architectures : Intel devloper forum slide deck looking at the future of storage class memory and its impact on storage architecture.
