Where I have been has shaped where I am today. So, I’m grateful and blessed for all previous opportunities, as it’s led me to this announcement today. It’s an extreme privilege and honor to serve at VMware as a new Global Sr. Solutions Engineer. My main focus will be around vSAN (HCI) solutions for some of the best organizations in the world. I look forward to working with Frank Denneman, Pete Koehler and many others again. I also count it as a bonus to be in the same VMware business unit (SABU) as Duncan Epping! :)

I also look forward to exemplifying VMware values: “EPIC2” Execution, Passion, Integrity, Customers, and Community. I have noticed from the outside looking in that VMware has a great culture…

The state-of-the-art hardware platforms for training deep neural networks (DNNs) are moving from traditional single precision (32-bit) computations towards 16-bit precision, in large part due to the high energy efficiency and smaller bit storage associated with using reduced-precision representations. In the Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) paper “Training Deep Neural Networks with 8-bit […]

Interpretability and performance of a system are usually at odds with each other, as many of the best-performing models (viz. deep neural networks) are black box in nature. In our work, improving simple models, we try to bridge this gap by proposing a method to transfer information from a high-performing neural network to another model […]

You can take advantage of a free download of key chapters from the exciting e-book, Designing Data-Intensive Applications. The chapters included in the free download cover two areas of vital concern to most MemSQL users, and indeed most developers and architects: transactions and streaming data. Designing Data-Intensive Applications, as a complete book, is more than 500 pages long. It takes as its premise that data is at the center of many of the challenges in system design today. (This is not a premise that is a surprise to us at MemSQL.) Author Martin Kleppman is an expert on this topic. …

AWS re:Invent, which ended yesterday, was a very busy and energetic trade show, with an estimated 50,000-plus people in attendance. There were a few highlights and some new news that I can share from spending the week at the show. AWS spent a lot of time on AI and machine learning. The main focus was on tooling for delivering advanced analytics easily. While most of the tooling is software, Amazon also announced hardware: a new processor, Inferentia, that is promised to run AI applications with high performance and at low cost. This follows a similar move into AI processors by …

Hazelcast is well integrated with the Kubernetes environment. Using Hazelcast Kubernetes Plugin, Hazelcast members discover themselves automatically. Using Hazelcast Helm Charts, you can deploy a fully functional Hazelcast cluster with a single command. Now, it's time to focus on the operational part and describe what to do if you want to scale up or down the number of Hazelcast members in a cluster.
