GigaOm Radar for Evaluating Data Warehouse Platforms

examined the leading platforms in the data warehouse marketplace, described the
fundamentals of the technology, identified key criteria and evaluation metrics by which organizations
can evaluate competing platforms, described some potential technology developments to look out for
in the future, and classified platforms across those criteria and metrics.

Modernizing and Future-Proofing Your Storage Infrastructure

In this insideHPC Special Research Report sponsored by Seagate, “Modernizing and Future-Proofing Your Storage Infrastructure,” we take a look at the importance of modernizing your HPC storage infrastructure.

Is Your Storage Infrastructure Ready for the Coming AI Wave?

In this new whitepaper from our friends over at Panasas, we take a look at whether your storage infrastructure is ready for the robust requirements in support of AI workloads. AI promises to not only create entirely new industries, but it will also fundamentally change the way organizations large and small conduct business. IT planners need to start revising their storage infrastructure now to prepare the organization for the coming AI wave.

Magseis Fairfield Uses a Sea of Data to Support Environmentally Responsible Energy Exploration

This whitepaper contains a compelling HPC data storage solution case study highlighting the use of Panasas ActivStor by Magseis Fairfield, a geophysics firm that specializes in providing seismic 3D and 4D data acquisition services to exploration and production (E&P) companies.

Panasas ActiveStor Solution: Architectural Overview

Our friends over at Panasas have released this timely new white paper “Panasas ActiveStor Solution: Architectural Overview.” The Panasas ActiveStor architecture running the PanFS storage operating system breaks through the performance constraints of other parallel file systems.

The GigaIO™ FabreX™ Network – New Frontiers in Networking For Big Data

In order to derive meaning from big data, via implementing the capabilities of big data analytics, and create new opportunities and new value, organizations must find a way to obtain radically increased overall system throughput. This whitepaper describes how the GigaIO FabreX network makes such accelerated functionalities possible by achieving exceptionally low latency and high-bandwidth performance across an organization’s entire network.

Improving Speed, Scalability and the Customer Experience with In-Memory Data Grids

Over the last decade, the new anytime, anywhere, personalized experience has driven query and transaction volumes up 10 to 1000x. It has created 50x more data about customers, products, and interactions. It has also shrunk the response times customers expect from days or hours to seconds or less. Download the new report from GridGain to learn how in-memory computing and in-memory data grids are tackling today’s data storage challenges.
