Thinking About Intel Rack-Scale Architecture

Scott Lowe

You may have heard of Intel Rack-Scale Architecture (RSA), a new approach to designing data center hardware. Some software that combines disaggregated hardware capacity over a rack-scale fabric to create “pooled systems” When you look at Intel RSA this way—and this is the way that it is typically positioned and described—it just doesn’t seem to make sense. Why should they buy this architecture instead of just buying servers?

Cloud-Based Data Lakes: Healthcare Enterprise Architecture Zones

Perficient Financial Servies

This is why cloud-based data lakes have replaced the enterprise data warehouse (EDW) as the core of a modern healthcare data architecture. However, it’s no longer the centerpiece of an enterprise’s data architecture strategy. The EDW remains a mission-critical component in a company’s overall information technology architecture, but it should now be viewed as a “downstream application” — a destination, but not the center of your data universe.

Sony confirms PS5 will have exclusive games playable only on next-gen hardware

The Verge

The PlayStation 5 will have one selling point Sony thinks might be important to fans who are on the fence about upgrading to a new generation of gaming console: exclusive titles, playable only on the new hardware. But it’s notable now because Sony and its primary competitor, Microsoft, have gone to great lengths over the last few years to create new system architectures that bridge current and future generations of gaming hardware.

How To Transform An IT Architecture

The Accidental Successful CIO

Just exactly how does one go about transforming an IT architecture? The first of these questions is whether or not the new architecture is going to be flexible enough. Once you’ve made the switch, are you going to find yourself ending up with a rigid architecture? Or will you find yourself with an architecture that will be able to to grow and change with the business? Next you’ll have to determine just how secure the new architecture is going to be.

Hardware In An Era Of Software-Defined Storage

Chuck's Blog - EMC

While many of us are enamored by the vision of a software-defined data center (SDDC), we also know that hardware will still be a very important consideration: how much, how efficient, how fast, etc.   The thinking around how we best assemble into architectures: servers, arrays, fabrics -- is also evolving at a blistering pace. And it''s hard to have a meaningful point-of-view on SDS unless you also have a clear point-of-view on the hardware it will inevitably use.

Did you want a side of SLBS (server less BS) with your software or hardware FUD?

Storage IO Blog

It turns out, serverless BS (SLBS) and hardware less are still trendy, and while some might view the cloud or software-defined data center (SDDC) virtualization, or IoT folks as the culprits, it is more widespread with plenty of bandwagon riders. To me what’s ironic is that many purveyors of of SLBS also like to talk about hardware. The post Did you want a side of SLBS (server less BS) with your software or hardware FUD?

IDF 2013: Rack Scale Architecture for Cloud

Scott Lowe

This is IDF 2013 session CLDS001, titled “Rack Scale Architecture for Cloud.” Kumar mentions that Krzanich mentions rack-scale architecture (RSA, not to be confused with a security company of the same name) as one of three pillars of accelerating the data center, and this session will be diving a bit deeper on rack-scale architecture. However, the current architectures aren’t sufficient. Reference architectures and orchestration software.

Hardware In An Era Of Software-Defined Everything.   While that's quite true, there's a much smaller group who sees something far more impactful -- a complete re-thinking of cloud-scale IT infrastructures: both software and hardware.   But, in this new world, we start thinking about hardware differently as well -- especially at scale. The architectural focus quickly shifts to the network controller as the prime orchestrator of IT service delivery. 

Apple WWDC 2020: iOS 14, ARM Macs, hardware rumors, and what else to expect

The company is still expected to unveil the first look at the future of iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS — the various suites of software that power all of Apple’s hardware. The perennial rumor for the Apple Watch — the addition of sleep tracking — has popped up again this year in rumors for watchOS 7 , although it’s not clear whether Apple will hold off on that announcement for when it releases a new Apple Watch this fall (given that sleep tracking may have additional hardware demands).

Using Accelerators to Close the Real-Time Intelligence Gap


You can download a white paper showing how this can be accomplished, complete with reference architecture, here. An excerpt from the paper discusses how to combine Napatech accelerators, a messaging system like Apache Kafka, and a streams processing system like Apache Storm to accomplish this: Napatech accelerators use hardware, FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays), to perform in-line event processing and line rate packet analysis at 1/10/40/100 Gbps speeds.
