The QUIC transport protocol: design and Internet-scale deployment Langley et al., SIGCOMM’17
QUIC is a transport protocol designed from the ground up by Google improve the performance of HTTPS traffic. The chances are you’ve already used it – QUIC is deployed in Chrome, in the YouTube mobile app, and in the Google Search app on Android. It’s also used at Google’s front-end servers, handling billions of requests a day. All told, about 7% of global Internet traffic is now flowing over QUIC. There are three interesting aspects to the paper, that we can essentially divide into the Why, the What, and the How. How QUIC was built and evolved over time is an integral part of the story.

Why build a new protocol

Two forces combined to create the pressures that eventually led to QUIC. On the one hand, the use of the web as a platform for applications, and the latency sensitivity of those applications (and…

I made a presentation at the recent Storage Visions conference which gave me an opportunity to think about how rapidly Software-Defined Servers are evolving and how perfectly they fit with software defined storage architectures.

Big Data undoubtedly is a major trend changing business ecosystems in a rapid manner. Although analysts estimate the Big Data market to be about $100 billion in 2020, it is currently quite fragmented with many providers tackling different aspects of the Big Data spectrum. From our perspective, the integration of Big Data into the SAP world is missing in the current offerings.
Although a significant impact of Big Data on enterprises already exists, we see several inhibitors which cause the associated business models to be still quite immature at this point, hence the major transformation that the economy will face from Big Data is still to come. These inhibitors are from our experience and discussions with customers:

  • Missing link between Big Data and Enterprise Data: Even in the Big Data world, Data is kept in silos (files, Hadoop, Data Warehouses) across the enterprise…

Exploring the performance of Redis Enterprise with Flash memory extension.

With Redis Enterprise, we recently enabled the ability to extend your RAM based storage into Flash memory. Don’t confuse this with some form of persistence– this is a way to let Redis break out of the bounds of the server RAM and into Flash storage as needed. With the advances in Flash memory (NVMe-based SSD storage), the performance becomes very viable, although not quite as quick as RAM alone. This allows you to have hybrid storage -in which data moves between fast RAM and Flash as needed, all managed by Redis Enterprise and without changes to your code.
Let’s take a look at the performance characteristics of Redis Enterprise on Flash and how you can test the performance yourself. We suggest installing Redis Enterprise directly as described in our documentation. While we offer instructions on how to…

This past week I made the trip down the major Colorado arterial highway that runs north – south from Wyoming to New Mexico. Striim was giving a presentation in the Denver Technical Center and Striim CTO, Steve Wilkes, was the keynote presenter. Organized by Radiant Advisers, an independent research and advisory firm that “delivers practical, innovative research and thought-leadership to transform today’s organizations into tomorrow’s data-centric industry leaders,” this was too close to my office to miss. I have known Steve for more than a decade and to have an opportunity to hear Steve always proves stimulating and as much as he has presented of late, he confided to me, his enthusiasm and interaction with the audience made the fast trip down to Denver worthwhile.
The presentation centered on “Modernizing Data Platforms with…

Even though predictive analytics has been around for quite some time, interest around this topic has increased over the last couple of years. It is no longer enough for a company to accurately record what has happened. Today, an organization’s success depends on its ability to reliably predict what will happen – be it predictions about what a customer is likely to buy next, an asset that could require maintenance, or the best action to take next in a business process.
Predictive analytics uses (big) data, statistical algorithms, and machine learning techniques to identify the likelihood of future outcomes based on historical data, enabling both optimization and innovation. Existing processes can be improved – for example by forecasting sales and spikes in demand and enabling the required adjustments to the production planning. Also, new insights can uncover new business opportunities or even make new products and services possible – just think of cross- and…

Original post by Eli Skeggs ([email protected])
We’re excited to announce the v1.0 release of Bee-Queue: a fast, lightweight, robust Redis-backed job queue for Node.js. With the help of Bee-Queue’s original author, Lewis Ellis, we revived the project to make it the fastest and most robust Redis-based distributed queue in the Node ecosystem. Mixmax is using Bee-Queue in production to process tens of millions of jobs each day.
Bee-Queue is meant to power a distributed worker pool and was built with short, real-time jobs in mind. Scaling is as simple as running more workers, and Bee-Queue even has a useful interactive dashboard that we use to visually monitor job processing.
Here is how Bee-Queue v1.0…

As industries of all types and sizes embrace IoT, digital companies are gaining efficiencies, increasing productivity, and improving the customer experience. Organizations can further drive significant business process improvements and dramatically improve their decision-making capabilities by investing in IoT analytics.
To reap these benefits, companies must be able to ingest real-time streaming data from multiple sources, in both structured and unstructured formats, and easily combine it with business process data. In tandem, they must have an in-memory analytics data platform so they can quickly process and gain insights from IoT data. A combination of online…
