  • Does the brain store information in discrete or analog form?

    Article Topper: Standard (text only topper) Rewriting Life Does the brain store information in discrete or analog form? New evidence in favor of a discrete form of data storage could change the way we understand the brain and the devices we build to interface with it. For engineers, the question of whether to store information in analog or discrete form is easy to answer. Discrete data storage has clear advantages, not least of which is that it is much more…

  • Why Hyperconverged Storage is Gaining Adoption

    Why Hyperconverged Storage is Gaining Adoption Hyperconverged storage has become a key factor in enterprise data storage. The trend toward hyperconverged storage is causing technology leaders to rethink their data storage strategies. It enables enterprises to support agile development cycles, streamline IT management and bring their storage, compute, virtualization and networking initiatives into tighter alignment. Its growing popularity also spells good news for vendors that have hopped on the bandwagon early. Shifting to a hyperconverged infrastructure from a traditional server…

  • 10 hot storage companies to watch

    Innovations such as software-defined storage (SDS), hyper-converged infrastructures (HCI), and blockchain have investors flocking to enterprise storage startups, and this market shows no signs of slowing down. Collectively, the 10 startups featured in this roundup have raised more than $736 million in VC funding. This total is even more impressive when you factor in two startups not included in that calculation. One of them is entirely self-funded, while the other has a unique business model and an equally unique source…

  • What is composable infrastructure?

    Composable infrastructure treats compute, storage, and network devices as pools of resources that can be provisioned as needed, depending on what different workloads require for optimum performance. It’s an emerging category of infrastructure that’s aimed at optimizing IT resources and improving business agility.The approach is like a public cloud in that resource capacity is requested and provisioned from shared capacity – except composable infrastructure sits on-premises in an enterprise data center. IT resources are treated as services, and the composable…

  • Can Supercomputers Break Down Data Silos?

    The Iridis Supercomputer. Credit: University of Southampton The race to build ever-more powerful supercomputers often seems somewhat superficial, a simple game of one-upmanship between research institutes and universities where academic performance and potential is measured in cores and petaflops. The announcements heralding a new supercomputer are often quite drab, focusing in on just the raw numbers involved, rather than how the computer actually benefits their academic homes, which spend lofty sums of cash on buying and maintaining them. The University…
