[san-tech][03181] NetApp Mercury: host-side flash caching for the datacenterへのコメント, The Register, 2011/06/17

Date: Sat, 18 Jun 2011 08:30:31 +0900
The Registerで、FAST '11のポスターセッションで発表された NetAppの
Project Mercuryについてコメントしています:

"Welcome to the server flash cache sofa"
 17th June 2011

  "Comment NetApp is involved with storage array management of
   flash caches in app servers - witness its Project Mercury
   presentation at the FAST '11 conference at San Jose in February."
  "The idea was to link a flash cache in the server to a shared,
   centrally-managed storage array so that virtual machines (VMs)
   and their storage could be moved between physical servers in
   a shared-pool datacentre without losing any I/O speed-up
   benefits from having a local flash cache."

   develop a new generation of engineers. OpSIS will provide university
   students with the ability to build their own silicon photonics
   experiments - a necessary capability that doesn't exist today.
   These students of today will become the innovators and leaders of
   tomorrow that grow this nascent industry into one that touches

Data Center TCP

  "DCTCP is an enhancement to the TCP congestion control algorithm
   for data center networks. It leverages Explicit Congestion
   Notification (ECN), a feature which is increasingly becoming
   available in modern data center switches. DCTCP sources extract
   multi-bit feedback on congestion from the single-bit stream of
   ECN marks by estimating the fraction of marked packets. In doing so,
   DCTCP sources react to the extent of congestion, not just the
   presence of congestion as in TCP.  This finer level of control
   allows DCTCP to operate with very low buffer occupancies while
   simultaneously achieving high throughput.

   the baseline temperature inside the data center - known as a set

  "As the world's climate heats up and more people become concerned
   about the environment, a new spotlight appears on information technology.
   IT affects our environment in many ways, but most people — including
   many IT professionals — don't realize this. Each stage of a computer's
   life, from production and use to disposal, presents environmental
   challenges. As businesses and governments try to balance growth with
   environmental risks, we're called upon to make IT systems and their use
   greener and, more importantly, to apply IT in innovative ways to address
   environmental problems.”
