Quick diag. of what the CAStore does?



AUSTIN, Texas, January 28th, 2008 – Caringo Inc., a leading provider of content storage software that delivers a clustered storage infrastructure for storing both active and archive content, today released a comprehensive white paper detailing the performance characteristics of its CAStor™ software. The paper provides IT managers with valuable information for understanding what’s needed to design and deploy a performance-optimized content storage solution to meet the speed and budget requirements of competitive business operations.

The white paper titled “Performance Considerations and Metrics” and authored by Caringo co-founder and President Jonathan Ring, provides potential customers an understanding of the environmental and technical considerations to be addressed such as application and client workloads as well as CPU and RAM configurations. The performance numbers in this paper demonstrate CAStor’s unique ability to provide the speed of primary storage and the affordability for long term content archiving. Readers will be delighted to find that these excellent performance metrics apply to both small and large files.

“With the vast amount of data overload that IT managers are challenged with today, it is critical to provide a performance-optimized content storage environment or be crushed with a series of data bottlenecks that can cripple application performance,” said Ring. “Whether the application is storing lots of small e-mail messages or larger files such as images or video, CAStor enables organizations to address both and seamlessly scale performance and capacity as their business evolves.”

The Caringo performance white paper explores issues related to high-performance clusters, cluster size, network fabric, client loads and more. In addition it illustrates how CAStor provides customers the ability to take advantage of hardware improvements in processing power, energy efficiency and capacity to seamlessly enhance cluster performance, scale and reduce power consumption. It delivers these capabilities while also mitigating issues of “hot spots,” storage capacity, number of files and file size limitations encountered by traditional file system approaches to storing unstructured content.

CAStor is scalable, high-performance and extremely cost-effective software that runs on standard, commodity server hardware for a fraction of the price of other storage systems focused on unstructured content. CAStor is self-healing, managing and configuring, uses no proprietary APIs, and requires no provisioning or downtime to add storage capacity in real time. With CAStor, an organization can store all of its active and archive content with guaranteed integrity in a single tier storage environment that scales from 1 terabyte to petabytes – all while requiring minimal administration and management. Customers have implemented CAStor clusters as content archives for long-term preservation as well as general content storage to support other applications such as online media services and Web 2.0 applications.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…

A Collection of Threnodies : Part 1

Whale Fall
-----------------

Dress me up in my new threads
clasp my greasy palms
grease my hair
I'm ready for the fall


Watch at all the decadence
watching the avalanche
I'm slipping down
losing my buoyancy


What's become of us
where have we come
this far, this close
close to the doors


I hear them, sublimal chants
I'm on the run
I race through the human sea
I am the king!


I'm the slave
to my own undoings
I'm the jester in my courtyard
We jest as we run


We're strolling on that thin rope
we grope as we rope
we're true heros
we're the survivors


we're the scavengers
we're the friends
we're the lovers
we're the unbred


Soon awaiting the fall
we're lurking on us
we're osedaxing us
we're soon going to be done
we'll soon be arrested




*osedax(bone devourer, newly discovered marine genus) feeds on a fallen(sunken) whale carcass(which is also called a whale fall). Read more here
