MesosCon Europe kicks off October 8 and we’re proud to be part of the news and new technology announced at the show. In collaboration with Mesosphere, creators of the Datacenter Operating System (DCOS), we’re announcing two new open source projects for external storage volume support within Apache Mesos architectures that will be available as common services in the Mesosphere DCOS. Mesos has been getting increased traction in the “DevOps” community as an open source data center management platform that, among other things, supports container technology such as Docker.
DevOps is a broad term used in the tech industry today. Chances are, if you’ve read about DevOps, or just followed tech news, you’ve encountered the concept of containers. Containers are a technology that encapsulates software with everything it needs to run (code, runtime, system tools, system libraries and more). Since all the essentials are “contained,” the software will run the same no matter what platform it is used on. Containers tend to lean into a large focus area for customers of EMC’s Emerging Technologies Division, where infrastructure is frictionless, portable, and run as software.
The companies that are winning in their industries and driving innovation in our world are those that find ways to extract value from data. Splunk has emerged as the most widely-used and one of the fastest-growing platforms for extracting value from machine-generated data. Some have called it the “easy button” for analytics…whether it’s Big Data, Fast Data, IoT, cyber-security, or sentiment analysis, Splunk has a compelling story and we (at EMC) like it. The industry also seems to like it, and customers are voting in approval with their dollars.
With declining revenues from recorded music, road tours are becoming more and more important. Historically, artists could expect up to 25% of their revenue to come from album sales; today they typically receive little more than a penny for 20 plays on YouTube. As a result, a t-shirt sale can generate as much profit as 25,000 plays. For big acts, the figures can be huge. In the first 11 nights of their iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE tour, U2 grossed $22 million and the band has recently embarked upon its European leg.
The staging of musical events is continually getting bigger and more complex, and no one has embraced this more than U2. Between 2009-2011, U2 travelled four continents with their unique 400-ton 360-degree stage and the world’s largest video screen. For U2’s current world tour, the band is pushing the live performance envelope once again with a combination of dazzling sets and special effects, all driven by increasingly sophisticated technology, which now includes flash storage and back-up systems from EMC.
There was a time when September rolled around and you were very enthusiastic about choosing a new metal lunch box. It came emblazoned with your favorite movie or cartoon character, and if you were lucky, contained a matching Thermos! Once you had your new lunch box, maybe you were allowed to choose a few special treats, and every day you eagerly anticipated the fabulous options waiting inside. Well, September is here once again, and it’s time to get excited about the box—only this time it holds something more thrilling than cream-filled Hostess cupcakes: it holds the new EMC ScaleIO Node.
What’s the ScaleIO Node?
Unlike previous, software-only offerings, ScaleIO Node takes all the superior capabilities of ScaleIO software, bundles them on EMC commodity servers and delivers them to customers as a packaged offering. This enables customers to quickly deploy a fully architected software-defined, scale-out, server SAN in a pre-validated, tested and configured solution. ScaleIO Node delivers high performance from commodity hardware and is fully supported by one vendor: EMC. (more…)
