All-flash array maker Violin Memory has beefed up its all-flash arrays with much-needed inline deduplication and compression features. While both of these features have been around for years with disk-based arrays, adding them to flash arrays is a bit trickier given the high I/O rates of flash devices. But both dedupe and compression are absolutely necessary if the cost ...

The list of Things-as-a-Service keeps growing. Zadara Storage has rolled out the latest entry with the introduction of On-Premise-as-a-Service (OPaaS), targeting private clouds that include managed storage area network and network-attached storage. The twist here is a flexible “pay-as-you-go” pricing model similar to other cloud-based options, eliminating upfront costs while allowing on-demand storage purchases. The non-lease scheme allows customers ...

Like most large enterprises, chip maker AMD has some big central systems that it uses to run its core business, and on top of that, it has a cluster of many thousands of systems with over 100,000 cores running its electronic design automation (EDA) software, which is used to create its CPU, GPU, and APU chips. The company no ...
