The other day one of our partners asked if he could have a single Linux virtual machine running OpenIO Object Storage for functionality tests, so I wanted to be sure to have this option available to everybody.
A step by step guide
The short answer is "less than you may think”. A step by step guide.
The cloud and other modern computing models are great, but they are not the solution to all problems. Pay-as-you-go or Pay-it-less?
Most modern enterprises are trying to become data-driven, but what does this really mean? What are the benefits of being data-driven, and what steps are needed to make it happen?
Two years ago the team started developing GridForApps. A serverless computing framework integrated with the object store. Originally designed take advantage of unused resources, it enables to build a future-proof cloud-edge solution.
When small really means small.
OpenIO can automatically select the appropriate data protection mechanism on the fly. We call it dynamic data protection.
If you look at modern compute infrastructure and computing models you can see how object, serverless and even scale-out can easily solve most of the challenges posed by edge computing ad its integration with the cloud. Even more so, having the ability to deploy the same…
Many people still think that object storage is only applicable to a limited number of use cases. Traditional object storage is usually…
When Steve Jobs launched the iPhone in 2007, the device was cool, but it was just a nice piece of hardware with a fancy OS. What really changed the market happened later with the introduction of standard API sets enabling developers to build applications. iOS and Android…
This week I came across three interesting IoT projects, and, even though they are totally different from each other, they present the same challenges: data storage. This isn’t news, but things are a bit more complicated than they appear. Edge computing comes from the…
