The ability to read from shared storage and write to flash on the server subsequently delivered to flash all without the SAN even knowing is a major advantage. This kind of software will shape the server and storage markets in the coming months as more companies scramble to find ways to integrate and distribute their technology.
There are many FlashCaching products available from multiple manufacturers, but what one pays is for a better protocol implementation that will improve the overall performance of networks, databases and storage systems as a whole.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
