[Links of the Day] 11/05/2017 : Google - Push on green , Tensor flow in Datacenter , TCP congestion protocol

  • In-Datacenter Performance Analysis of a Tensor Processing Unit : How custom deep learning hardware behave in real datacenter, implication and gain associated with the use of such custom solution.
  • Push on Green : Great article on google roll out policy and process. A lot of common sense, and also some less common but as important. This is a great read for anybody involved in software delivery and especially if you are aiming at having an efficient CI/DI system. 
  • BBR : google congestion protocol for maximising bandwidth usage. It's new TCP scheduling algorithm to fight buffer-bloat at the TCP level. Since the majority of internet traffic is TCP, wide adoption would cause a big improvement. TCP scheduling only affects outgoing packets

[Links of the Day] 09/05/2017 : Serverless Design Patterns, Paper Reading How-to, HPE's The Machine

  • Serverless Design Patterns : Basic serverless pattern, nothing fancy but useful to keep in mind. 
  • How to Read a Paper : the short version is quite simple: Abstract -> conclusion ->figure, then start iterating through the paper, one layer at a time. 
  • Billion node graph inference: iterative processing on The Machine : I still believe that the machine is vaporware. It was promised for years. Still at the stage of nice plastic prototype and everybody developing/designing for it use simulator/emulator. But hey, it's nice to see what you can theoretically achieve on "the machine" even if it's a Superdome X in reality.
