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.

Some key features of Intel SSDs

Measure Ceph RBD performance in a quantitative way (part II)

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.

GA Tech 2013 Code for Good Student Hackathon

For 24 hours in early November, we held the 2nd GA Tech Code for Good Student Hackathon.  In continuation of last year's event here, we retained the theme of teaching healthy lifestyle choices to combat childhood obesity.  From edutainment to exercise games, we seek to create worthwhile projects that can help an at-risk demographic: our future.
