Machine Learning Infrastructures Require Scale to Spare
Used across a wide range of processes to improve or replace human input, machine learning is attractive because it is able to addresses problems never before tackled due to the prohibitively large volumes of data involved. But when it comes to managing these often massive data sets, it’s important to think big from the start to ensure long term success. In fact, the larger the data set, the more potential value that machine learning brings...

Building for exascale – lessons learned from the data center
It’s often said that there are two types of forecasts – lucky or wrong. Predictions remain that supercomputing systems will not reach exascale level for another five years or so. But, this is not the case when you are talking about the readiness of storage systems that can support exascale. The kind of storage architectures that will support these environments are already here; and being utilized in the high-end cloud and supercomputing world...

The best emerging storage tech of 2017
But the knock on object storage has long been performance. But as the active archiveconcept gains steam, people are realizing that a well-designed object store can ben plenty fast enough for many applications, especially considering the cost. The big storage companies aren't leading the charge, so check out companies such as Avere, DDN, HGST, Panzura, Quantum, and SpectraLogic to see if object storage is fast enough for your file storage needs...
