sqrrl Co-Founder and CTO Adam Fuchs explains in this whiteboard session how Accumulo provides granular and scaleable security to noSQL database environments in this session with Wikibon's Dave Vellante Hybrid flash/disk storage systems, in which data is written first to a flash cache in the server and then later peculated to a traditional storage array, can provide significant direct savings in environments supporting more than 700 IOPs per Tbyte. And hybrid arrays can benefit SMBs as well as large enterprises. Those are the primary conclusions of an in-depth Wikibon research project into performance differences between true hybrid storage and traditional arrays with read-only cache, presented in David Floyer's latest report, "Hybrid Storage Poised to Disrupt Traditional Arrays." The savings comes partly from the order-of-magnitude read-write speeds of flash-first hybrid storage, in which data is written directly to the flash cache, as contrasted by the traditional array architecture in which data is first written to disk and then copied to the flash cache. This advantage is magnified in virtualized environments where control of reads and writes rests in the virtualization layer, and traffic from multiple applications is combined. This traffic appears to the storage layer as random. Flash is optimized for such random traffic while disk by nature is much more efficient handling long consecutive reads and writes. The result of this huge performance advantage is that the number of cores in a typical high-performance database can be reduced while still meeting QoS requirements for the database. For instance, Floyer writes, a planned eight core traditional database infastructure can be reduced to five cores by using a hybrid system. Given that licenses for SQL Server and Oracle databases cost $15,000 to $20,000 per processor core, this can save $45,000 to $60,000 in licensing. A VM-aware hybrid storage architecture also greatly simplifies database management because VM storage objects are mapped directly to objects held in the storage array. The software-layer management can provide detailed response-time performance measurements to the DBA. The study found that this reduced the time required to manage these systems to about five hours per week, compared to 10-to-20 hours per week for traditional systems running similar loads. Databases under 700 IOPS per Tbyte, and lower performance systems in general, however, probably will not benefit sufficiently to justify the higher purchase cost of flash systems. They are better off, Floyer writes, on lower-cost all disk systems. Adding read-only flash cache to traditional storage arrays will increase performance. "However, Wikibon does not believe that this implementation will provide the same cost and performance advantages of a full implementation of a flash-first VM-Aware hybrid architecture." Floyer concludes that over time flash costs will continue to decrease, and flash-first arrays, either hybrid or pure flash, will become the standard for high-performance storage. As a result, he recommends strongly that CIOs, including those of SMBs and corporate divisions, specify low-latency flash or hybrid arrays in the RFPs for all high-performance storage systems where the anticipated performance characteristics exceed the minimum 700 IOPS per Tbyte.

What is Console Connect Live 2015 All About?. (15:30) Track List created with http://www.vinjavideo.com. --- --- Data centers positioned to reduce vulnerability | #CCL2015 by Nelson Williams | Sep 9, 2015 Networking is a game of connections, forever seeking out the quickest way to move data from one point to another. In the modern digital world, data jumps between nodes and systems on its way from a server to the consumer. The best way to shorten that journey is to serve up the information from right next door. To gain some insight into how data centers position themselves to serve customer demand, John Furrier and Jeff Frick, cohosts of theCUBE, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, joined Randy Brouckman, CEO of EdgeConneX, Inc., at the Console Connect Live 2015 conference. Brouckman explained that his company was invested in bringing content to the customers instead of leaving the customer to chase after content. In a networking sense, that means building data centers close to the consumers in high-demand areas all across the country. Letting demand lead The basic plan, Brouckman said, was to locate the areas with the highest demand for content and then build a data center close by. From there, they would connect into the local broadband provider and begin to serve the networking ecosystem in the area. Originally, that meant working with a mobile-centric vision, but now it also includes content, streaming media and Cloud services. Giving data a home near the consumer also means paying attention to security. The goal is to stop attacks far out in the network, away from the core data servers, to reduce vulnerability. Economies of scale and presence As the need for data servers and networking grows, traditional solutions won’t be able to keep up. Brouckman pointed to how his company was moving toward automated systems with a smaller footprint. The company offered a new sort of support system involving automated information and control applications that the customers can use without involving network technicians. The addition of a console node to these systems has also given the company an on-ramp to the console ecosystem. This has allowed it to provide a point of presence and Cloud services in a direct, secure manner. @theCUBE #ccl2015

Deepak Malhotra, Harvard Business School professor and Board of Advisors at Nutanix, Inc., would argue there are plenty of lessons to be found in such an ancient document. 3,000 years old, the Treaty of Kadesh was between the Egyptians and the Hittites. When comparing the Hittite copy of the treaty and the Egyptian copy of the treaty, you may find items standard of a peace treaty, but you’ll also find one stark difference. The Egyptian treaty claims that the Hittites came asking for peace first; the Hittites say it was just the opposite. This, Malhotra said, is key. Malhotra spoke to Stu Miniman (@stu) and Dave Vellante (@dvellante), cohosts of theCUBE, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, during the Nutanix .NEXT Conference. The key in successful negotiation in business is understanding how humans function. No one wants to lose face. Both sides need to declare victory. “When you recognize they want to save face, you can change how you do things,” and it changes the way you approach making a deal, said Malhotra. Knowing this, you can figure out a way to show how both sides are winning. The deal doesn’t have to be lose-lose, he added. Negotiate value instead of price It’s also important to get the economics right and have a reasonable price. But you often have to face some psychological hurdles that businesses often don’t prepare for. If you’re doing something entirely new, no matter the genius behind it, it can be hard to convince people it’s worth the investment. If they don’t use something similar now, why do they need it? The business needs to show why it’s worth it, and that can often be done through testimonials. “The worst mistake salesmen make is to apologize about a high price,” Malhotra said. Instead, show them the value and the list of people who have already decided to buy in. It will show faith in your product and confidence in the value you’re providing. Changing the world Malhotra is looking to continue utilizing his negotiation expertise to research and work toward solutions for ethnic conflict, improve doctor-patient relationships, and find out whether or not mass shootings have impact on gun laws.

(19:27) Track List created with http://www.vinjavideo.com. --- --- Why Snowflake is better than Amazon Redshift: Reimagining data | #VMWorld 2015 by Heather Johnson | Oct 14, 2015 Snowflake Computing Inc.’s cloud data warehouse differentiates itself in two ways: elasticity and simplicity. “We’re a SaaS,” says CEO Bob Muglia. “We’re fully turnkey. You load data, you run queries. There’s no administration, no keys that need to be built to do distribution across different nodes. We handle all of that. That’s different than other cloud data warehouses, and certainly different than getting a data warehouse appliance or software that’s installed in a set of machines within a data center.” Muglia, formerly president of Microsoft’s Server and Tools business, discussed with theCUBE cohosts Jeff Frick and George Gilbert from the SiliconANGLE Media team, the architecture behind Snowflake’s services, and the pros and cons of its rival Amazon RedShift, which is getting lots of attention in the startup community. Muglia says that much remains exposed in terms of admin knobs. “Amazon acquired rights to ParAccel [technology] and hosted it in the AWS cloud environment,” says Muglia. “They’ve done a very good job. It’s easy in Amazon to instantiate a Redshift cluster. But that’s where it ends. You still have to do all of the administrative tasks. You still have to vacuum it, manage it, determine your distribution keys, all of the things that you had to do with ParAccel or with any shared nothing database, you have to do with Redshift. “That’s one of the differentiators that SnowFlake has,” Muglia continues. “All of those tasks don’t exist. We don’t use a traditional architecture. We have a new architecture that has never existed before that we call multiclustered shared data that essentially makes this administrative work go away and provides us with an incredible degree of elasticity.” Muglia is enthusiastic about his company’s product for the problems it solves. “It’s a modern data warehouse that was built to solve the problems that today’s customers have,” he says. “Those problems include a fully functional structured relational data warehouse that’s super competitive against Oracle and TerraData. But it’s also a product that seamlessly solves problems for customers that work with machine-generated data and blows the socks off of alternative solutions.” @theCUBE #VMworld

Networking is seeing as much change and innovation as any other part of the digital revolution, and smart businesses are keeping an eye on this market. To gain some insight into these changes, John Furrier and Dave Vellante of theCUBE, from the SilconANGLE Media team, spoke with Jayshree Ullal, president and CEO of Arista Networks, Inc. at the VMworld 2015 conference. The interview opened up with a question about Software-Defined Networking (SDN). Ullal replied that SDN had gone from marketing hype to a reality that offered openness and programmability to clients. It was seeing use not only in traditional networking roles, but also in the area of workloads and workflows. Uptime and the Cloud Modern networks can no longer afford downtime, Ullal said, and traditional means of ensuring uptime are no longer sufficient or desired by the customer. To achieve the goal of high availability, companies need a system that can perform smart upgrades in real time. Networking also has to follow trends in the tech world, such as supporting the Cloud and partnering with the major players in the tech industry. One of these trends involves going Cloud-native, that is, bringing the Cloud experience to public, private and hybrid applications. Opportunities for the next generation The conversation turned toward the next generation and what they could do to be part of the future of technology. Ullal agreed there are opportunities for the younger generation, which they can find by building on the foundation of a solid education. She suggested the best way to reach the future was for young people to follow their dreams, but go one step at a time. @theCUBE #VMworld

Adam Fuchs, CTO and Co-Founder of sqrrl, discusses how to bring structure to noSQL database environments in this whiteboard session hosted by Wikibon's Dave Vellante. NoSQL continues to gain adoption, primarily due to the need for it in corporate daily operations and the freedom it provides compared to the rigid schemas associated with relational technologies. That's the big picture from Coucbbase, which today announced the results of a survey it did with 1,300 practitioners. Couchbase is one of the leading vendors in the NoSQL market so it's not a big surprise to see them publish these rosy results. But the finding do speak to the overall transformation of the database market and the roaring plume of data that is shaping a new tech landscape. I agree that NoSQL has moved beyond the experimentation phase. In part, you can thank Oracle for that. The fact they jumped into the market has given customers more reason to invest more capital into the technology. It's a validation point. Here are some of the results from the survey: Nearly half of the more than 1,300 respondents indicated they have funded NoSQL projects in the first half of this year. In companies with more than 250 developers, nearly 70% will fund NoSQL projects over the course of 2012. 49% cited rigid schemas as the primary driver for their migration from relational to NoSQL database technology. Lack of scalability and high latency/low performance also ranked highly among the reasons given for migrating to NoSQL (see chart below for more details). 40% overall say that NoSQL is very important or critical to their daily operations, with another 37% indicating it is becoming more important. Couchbase asked how companies are using NoSQL Some interesting answers included that go beyond the traditional use cases: real-time tracking and segmentation of users for ad targeting disaster recovery inventory tracking manufacturing automation insurance underwriting multi-call center operations (with replication of production data) Twitter stream analysis Respondents were also asked about what they expect and hope for out of NoSQL in 2012. Couchbase breaks down what they say into four boxes: schemas; replacing RDMS/making it default database; scalability/performance and speed/agility in app development. Answers included: Gaining freedoms from inflexible schemas that do not adapt well to changing business requirements. Making NoSQL an integral part of daily operations and handle at least 30% of transaction load. Allowing the capability to share billions of documents across multiple commodity servers. Help in deploying new features faster without having to manage SQL patch scripts and migrations. ServicesAngle NoSQL -- it fits with so much that we write about. It's a huge factor in the transformation of the enterprise and a necessary focus for any services provider looking to provide a level of value added services.

An increasing number of companies are watching their central databases grow through the multi-petabytes towards the exabyte category writes Wikibon Analyst John McArthur in "Hyperscale Storage: Not if, When." The Wikibon alert headlines the latest Peer Incite newsletter triggered by the January 22 Wikibon Peer Incite meeting on hyperscaling with Cleversafe VP Russ Kennedy. Databases at this scale have been the province of large government agencies and dominant cloud companies like Facebook, YouTube, and Shutterfly. However, McArthur predicts, increasing numbers of more traditional companies are going to see their data grow to the multi-petabyte range as video, still images, and audio recording become more common parts of business communications. Databases of this size make traditional RAID and replication data protection strategies impractical. It is just too expensive to maintain multiple copies of a multi-petabyte database. Traditional customized hardware becomes impractically expensive, and with huge numbers of disk spinning, failures become increasingly common. This reality has driven Facebook and other online companies to develop a new IT infrastructure, including storage through the Open Compute Project, he writes. As a result, writes Wikibon Analyst Scott Lowe, "CIOS must watch hyperscale trends and jump when ready." "CIOs must maintain and open mind as times change and new opportunities and offerings make their way to market." Lessons from the hyperscale experience can help CIOs improve their services, decrease costs, increase availability and increase capacity and capability as demands grow, even if those demands do not reach the petabyte range. "In 1999 who would have thought that we could run 100 servers worth of workload on just five physical hosts with room to spare?" Hyperscale databases demand a new approach to data protection, adds Wikibon CTO David Floyer in Software-led Storage: Hyperscale Storage Requirements. "The only technology available to address these issues is erasure coding, the ability to use compute cycles to split up and transform the data into n slices with the ability to restore it with only m slices." These slices can be distributed geographically or locally. Metadata becomes vital in this approach as it is the key to finding the slices and rebuilding the file correctly. Cleversafe's information dispersal system uses a REST protocol-based approach, explains Wikibon Analyst Gary McFadden. In such systems, object-based storage has several advantages. However, erasure coding and information dispersal comes with a performance tax. It takes time to reassemble an object. Under ideal conditions this means a millisecond-scale response time, rather than the microsecond response required by high-performance, transactional systems. This means that vendors need to determine the vertical markets in which they wish to compete and examine the requirements of specific applications in these markets before deciding on the architecture on which they will build their systems. And users need to be conscious of the trade-offs when matching an application to a technology. So what does the the hyperscale architecture eliminate? For a start, maintenance contracts and repair expenses and detailed vendor management. But one of the biggest savings, writes Wikibon Analyst John McArthur, is "Eliminating Backup and Replication in Hyper-Scale Storage." This is absolutely necessary. Companies simply cannot afford to maintain multiple copies of multi-petabyte databases.
