Software Defined Storage with Intel® Enabling Technologies

Software-Defined Storage (SDS) is a software layer that manages storage infrastructure.  Software developers have the flexibility to use a variety of hardware, such as processors, network cards, and hard drives with their storage managing software to develop their own SDS solutions.  In this blog, I share some examples of developers using Intel enabling technologies (features of the hardware and/or software) to develop their SDS solutions.

Submissions open: High Performance Parallelism Gems

We have all had our little discoveries and triumphs in identifying new and innovative approaches that increased the performance of our applications. Occasionally we find something more, something that could also help others, an innovative gem. You now have an opportunity to broadcast your successes more widely to the benefit of our community. You are invited to submit a proposal to a contribution-based book, working title, “High Performance Parallelism Gems – Successful Approaches for Multicore and Many-core Programming” that will focus on practical techniques for Intel® Xeon® processor and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor parallel computing. Submissions are due by May 29, 2014.

Power Management: So what is this policy thing?

Unlike a lot of previous recent blogs, this series is about power management in general. At the very end of the series, I’ll write specifically about the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor.

I have talked incessantly over the years about power states (e.g. P-states and C-states), and how the processor transitions from one state to another. For a list of previous blogs in this series, and well as other related blogs on power and power management, see the article at [List0]. But I have left out an important component of power management, namely the policy.

Performance BKMs: Introduction and Super-secret Intel Tools

At SC13 (Super Computing 2013)*, someone commented that Intel seems to have some super-secret set of tricks in its pocket, allowing us to optimize “far beyond those of mortal man”+. We don’t really have any super-secret tricks. Even if we did, we wouldn’t use them. We want mortal man (you) to be able to reproduce whatever we do. It is also in our business interest to insure that you can optimize on Intel hardware to the fullest extent possible.

Resource Guide for People Investigating the Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor

This article identifies resources for anyone investigating the value to their organization of the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor, which is based on the Intel® Many Integrated Core (Intel® MIC) architecture. It is one of three such guides, each for people in one of the following specific roles:

  • Resources for Software Developers: Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT)

    There are many resources related to Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) that are available on the internet today. My attempt in this blog is to provide you with a list of the resources that may provide some insights throughout your development cycle.
