In this episode Chris gets an update on new announcements from Infinidat, including SSA Express and higher-capacity SSA II systems. SSA Express is a new feature of the InfiniBox “classic” platform that allows customers to implement what looks like a virtual SSA (all-flash array) within a hybrid InfiniBox. The solution effectively pins volumes in SSD rather than allowing the data to cascade to the HDD layer, with the benefit of SSA performance for no additional cost on 95% of hardware in the field. Infinidat has also introduced a new SSA II, the F4316T with up …
In this episode, Chris talks to Derek Dicker, CEO at Nyriad about the UltraIO storage array. Nyriad has developed a new storage architecture using GPUs that accelerate the calculations needed to store data using erasure coding. This enables UltraIO to implement system-wide data protection using erasure coding at the block level. In contrast to most storage vendors in the market today, the UltraIO platform uses hard disk drives, with a GPU to process data ingested by the system, while data is presented back through the CPU route. This dual processor architecture enables Nyriad to deliver …

In this episode, Chris chats to Anurag Gupta, co-founder at Calyptia about the requirements for system observability, specifically using Fluentd and Fluent Bit. Fluentd is a data collection tool, written in Ruby and C and used to collect data from multiple system types. Fluent Bit is a log collection tool written in C with an emphasis on efficiently collecting data from embedded Linux systems, including the IoT market. In this discussion Anurag explains the background to observability versus monitoring and how modern SaaS applications also need data to be collected and analysed. Data collection needs …
