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.

How Intel® AVX Improves Performance on Server Application

The latest Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family includes a feature called Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX), which can potentially improve application performance. Here we will explain the context, and provide an example of how using Intel® AVX improved performance for a commonly known benchmark.

For existing vectorized code that uses floating point operations, you can gain a potential performance boost when running on newer platforms such as the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family, by doing one of the following:

Use Cases That Take Advantage Of The Enhanced Communications Features Of the Intel® AtomTM Processor C2000 Product Family

The Intel® AtomTM processor C2000 product1 family has a subset of server products that include enhanced communications features.  This communications focused product line codenamed “Rangeley” extends the base Intel® AtomTM processor C2000 product family with greater communications reliability, longer product lifecycle, enhanced thermal profiles, and Intel® QuickAssist Technology to accelerate cryptographic workloa

The Benefits of Solid-State Storage Technologies in the Cloud

Summary

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.

IDF2013 - Arrived in San Francisco!

Just a quick note to say that I arrived this morning in San Francisco to participate in IDF 2013! I find it all very exciting... I am speaking on the tomorrow afternoon on Intel Platform technologies and the cloud, going to use Meshcentral.com as an example of how anyone can leverage Intel technologies to make cloud services better.
