[Links of the Day] 14/04/2016 : OpenFabric Workshop , Docker's Containerd , Category Theory

  • OpenFabrics Workshop 2017 : Some interesting talk this year at the open fabric conference:
    • uRDMA : Userspace RDMA using DPDK. This opens up a certain amount of possibility, especially for object storage solution. [Video , Slides, github]
    • Crail : Using urdma above to deliver accelerated storage solution for Apache big data projects [Slides, github]
    • Remote Persistent Memory: I think this is the next killer app for RDMA. If Intel doesn't jump onto it and deliver a dpdk like solution. [Video, Slides]
    • On Demand paging: slowly the tech is crawling its way up to upstream acceptance. While on-demand paging introduces a certain performance cost. It also allows a greater flexibility in consuming RDMA. One of the interesting aspects that nobody mentioned yet is how this feature could be used with persistent memory. I think that there is some good potential for p2p NVM storage solution.[Video, Slides]
  • Containerd : Containerd move to github, the docker "industry standard" container runtime is also reaching its v.0.2.x release.  [github]
  • Category Theory : If you are into functional programming and Haskell. This is a must read book for you.
