This paper examines how business needs translate to infrastructure considerations for infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) when building out or enhancing an OpenStack* cloud environment. The paper looks at these requirements and the foundational platform technologies that can support a wide range of service level agreement (SLA) requirements.
This paper describes the key architectural advancements of the latest Intel Xeon processors and Intel Atom
processor C2000s that are beneficial to Java applications. It also describes some of the techniques and
strategies used to optimize JVM software and the benefits those optimizations bring to Java applications.
New benchmark test results update this This Configuration and Deployment Guide which explores designing and building a Memcached infrastructure that is scalable, reliable, manageable and secure. Benchmark tests included the latest Intel Atom and Intel Xeon processor-based microservers and dual-socket servers to explore differing business scenarios and tradeoffs for different Service Level Agreement (SLA) requirements and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) objectives.
Solid-state drives (SSD) have rapidly evolved over the last few years, resulting in devices with more space and greater reliability. SSDs are used for caching in data centers and in larger system applications including computing massive data sets (big data: volume, variety, and velocity). This blog shares some features of Intel® SSD, illustrates the potential uses of SSDs in the cloud, and provides some general Linux guidelines to fully utilize Intel SSDs.
Some key features of Intel SSDs
This is the 2nd post about Ceph RBD performance. In part1, we go talk about random IO perforamnce on Ceph. This time we share the sequential read/write testing data. In case you forget our hardware configurations, we use 40x 1TB SATA disks for data disk plus 12 SSD as journal. And 4x 10Gb links are used to connect the storage clusters with clients together, which provides enough network bandwidth.
