Fear Not the Data Tsunami—Object Storage is Here

In this sponsored post, Michael St-Jean from Red Hat advises that there’s no need to fear the data tsunami we’ve long been approaching. Today’s new tools and architectures will help you tame the ebb and flow of object data and weather the storm. As a recent analyst study shows, object data is not only highly scalable, it can deliver deterministic performance at massive scale—more than 10 billion objects.

OpenIO Achieves Record 1 Tbps Write Speed

French startup OpenIO recently announced record performance with Criteo, the advertising platform for the open Internet. OpenIO demonstrated the performance and scalability of their object storage solution by deploying their technology on a cluster of more than 350 physica.l servers provided by Criteo. The benchmark made it possible to cross the symbolic threshold of writing up to one terabit of data per second

A Scalable Object Store for Meteorological and Climate Data

Simon D. Smart gave this talk at the PASC17 conference. “Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) and Climate simulations sit in the intersection between classically understood HPC and the Big Data communities. Driven by ever more ambitious scientific goals, both the size and number of output data elements generated as part of NWP operations has grown by several orders of magnitude, and will continue to grow into the future. This poses significant scalability challenges for the data processing pipeline, and the movement of data through and between stages is one of the most significant factors in this.”
