Part 2: Composable Infrastructure for the Modern Data Center

The Role of Software-Defined Resources
Last week, I explored some of the key issues and core benefits that are prompting enterprises to move to more flexible and cost-effective composable infrastructures.  As I pointed out in Part 1 of this blog, composable infrastructure technologies from vendors like TidalScale are designed to address many of the most pressing issues in today’s data centers,

In-memory databases, data grids and computing platforms just cannot put aside the existence -- and necessity -- of good old-fashioned disk drives. The performance boost given by RAM is tempting and promising but almost nobody wants to lose data. Services and applications call for durability unless the data is of no value to them or floods into the system at such a rate that you can sacrifice periodic data loss.

Upwards of 50% of VoltDB customers deploy in public and private clouds, so we get queries regularly on how to set up interfaces for cloud instances. One question that’s come up a few times is, ‘How do I configure VoltDB to be secure but still allow me to monitor through the web interface from my office?’
VoltDB allows this by letting you bind particular functions to network interfaces.  In most deployments, most of the client traffic is also from within the cloud.
VoltDB users can set both an external interface and a public interface in their VoltDB network configuration. The difference between these, however, is confusing to some; external usually means public. In VoltDB, the public interface is useful for cloud systems where the address used from outside the cloud is not actually an interface that is visible within the instances. For example, with AWS, you get a public interface that you can’t bind to from the host. That is where you set a public…

Meetups are a great opportunity for community members to learn more about unfamiliar features in Redis and new releases such as Redis 4.0.  Here at Redis Labs we love to support burgeoning Redis community events and wanted to say welcome to the newest Redis meetups.
Spain
Last month, Carlos I. Peña launched the Barcelona Redis Meetup to bring local Redis enthusiasts together.  Although still in its early stages, the Barcelona Meetup has attracted 50 community members and is in the planning stages for their first meetup.
Carlos is looking for other community members to help organize, host and speak at future meetups.  If you’re a Redis Geek in the Barcelona area, please join up and if you would be interested in helping with the meetup or speaking at a future event, please let Carlos know.

The SAP blog team recently sat down with David Chaiken, the CTO of SAP Cloud Platform Big Data Services (BDS), to talk about the challenges that data fragmentation poses to enterprise customers. David Chaiken was the CTO of Altiscale, a fully-managed Big Data-as-a-Service provider, that was acquired by SAP in September of 2016. David previously served as the Chief Architect of Yahoo!, where he worked on several projects related to Hadoop and big data.
Data fragmentation is a critical challenge facing companies today. It occurs when conceptually-related data sets originate in different places in a company. The general problem with data fragmentation is that it limits the ability of a company to benefit from business intelligence across the enterprise. This issue is particularly complicated in the case of large, unstructured data sets. We went to David Chaiken to get his viewpoint on the fragmentation-related challenges that enterprises are struggling to overcome, and what can…

Editor’s Note: This piece originally appeared in DBTA
More companies are realizing that leveraging real-time data is the key to success in modern applications, which means that more people are searching for the right in-memory database technology. However, with many options, comparing in-memory databases for your use case can be challenging.
Regardless of use case and which database you choose, there are three essential components that any in-memory database of quality must fulfill: being cloud-ready, Internet of Things (IoT)-ready, and ACID-compliant.
