NetApp Uses Kubernetes for Storageless Infrastructure – Container Journal

netapp uses kubernetes for storageless infrastructure – container journal

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

NetApp today at its online NetApp Insights 2020 conference announced it has added a storageless computing service that extends an existing Spot Ocean serverless computing framework for containers to make storage resources available on-demand in Kubernetes environments.
Ronen Schwartz, senior vice president and general manager for cloud volumes at NetApp, said as Spot Storage by NetApp continues to evolve, IT organizations will be able to leverage a storageless computing framework across hybrid cloud computing environments without having to administer storage infrastructure.
Spot Ocean already provides real-time analysis of pod and task requirements to predict compute resource requirements. It then makes spot, reserved or on-demand instances of compute resources available based on the cost-sensitivity of the IT budget when needed. That capability is now being extended to also apply to storage infrastructure using Kubernetes clusters that enable Spot Storage NetApp to programmatically orchestrate storage resources.

NetApp today also launched NetApp Cloud Manager, which makes it possible to manage data synchronization, data backup, data tiering, file caching and compliance across storage volumes residing in public clouds and on-premises IT environments. At the same time, NetApp unfurled a fully managed, cloud-based NetApp Virtual Desktop Management Service (VDMS) intended to make it easier for organizations …

Edge computing creates the opportunity for new approaches to IT challenges. One of the startups applying new ideas and technology is EDJX, which is building an intelligent network to support “serverless” computing along with established edge uses like content delivery and DNS routing. The company recently announced new funding and the launch of three network nodes in data centers operated by Cyxtera.
The EDJX delivery platform offers several form factors for placing distributed edge servers in offices and stores, ranging from micro servers the size of a credit card to full racks of Open Compute hardware. It enters the data center sector using hardware from ITRenew that is repurposed from hyperscale operators, and integrating a software-defined power solution from Virtual Power Systems (VPS) that brings new efficiencies to power management.
EDJX CEO John Cowan says it expects to “dramatically lower the cost of edge computing while delivering at planet-scale and giving developers complete freedom and control with no lock-in.” Cowan was previously CEO of 6fusion, which led the initial $2 million funding round for EDJX. In October, the company announced $3 million in new …

Anyscale adds $40M to bring its Ray-based distributed computing tech to the enterprise masses

anyscale adds $40m to bring its ray-based distributed computing tech to the enterprise masses

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The world of distributed computing took on a new profile this year when Folding@home, a 20-year-old distributed computing project, found itself picking up thousands of new volunteers to help Covid-19 researchers generate more computing power to fold proteins and run other calculations needed for screening potential drug compounds to fight the novel coronavirus. Today, a startup that is also tapping the potential and opportunity in distributed computing is announcing a round of growth funding to continue its own work.
Anyscale, a startup founded by a team out of UC Berkeley who created the Ray open-source Python framework for running distributed computing projects, has raised $40 million.
It plans to use the capital to continue developing Anyscale, a platform built on Ray that will make Ray usable not just by high-level developers and computing specialists, but any technical people who are looking to run projects that require large amounts of computing power.
Ion Stoica, Anyscale’s executive chairman who co-founded the company with Robert Nishihara, Philipp Moritz and Berkeley professor Michael I. Jordan, said in an interview that the company is tapping into a moment spurred not just by the events of 2020 but by the bigger demand from companies — spurred by …

Anyscale raises $40 million to launch a managed service for distributed computing workloads

anyscale raises $40 million to launch a managed service for distributed computing workloads

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Anyscale, the startup behind the open source project Ray, today closed a $40 million funding round. A company spokesperson says the capital will be put toward growing the ecosystem around Ray and promoting Anyscale’s first commercial offering, a managed Ray platform.
The types of distributed computing involved with AI and machine learning are often fraught with challenges. That’s because distributed systems vary in terms of how difficult they are to implement. Engineers working with distributed computing must test for all aspects of device and network failure, considering all the permutations of failures and bugs that a distributed system can encounter.
That’s where Anyscale comes in. Its solution enables developers to share and run distributed projects using a no-frills set of tools. The company was founded by the creators of Ray, which was developed at the University of California, Berkeley’s RISELab, a five-year intensive computer science research lab.
Ion Stoica, a professor of computer science at UC Berkeley, where he co-directs the RISELab, founded Anyscale last June with CEO Robert Nishihara, CTO Philipp Moritz, and UC Berkeley professor Michael Jordan. Stoica played a significant role in the creation of Apache Spark and other big data frameworks and tools. …

He brings more than 20 years of experience helping companies leverage technology for strategic advantage, as well as leading technology organisations as they scale for growth. Before joining Alteryx, Knudsen was a partner with Credera, focused on technology and business strategy. What was your first job? My first IT job was doing basic Windows NT administration in support of a ten-person development team. Not only did I know zero about things like DNS, DHCP, and WINS but this is 1995 when Windows NT was emerging so not a lot was available in terms of education but that’s what made it so interesting. Luckily the team I was on was really supportive of my learning which not only encourage me to learn and explore but also tolerated my mistakes which were plenty.Did you always want to work in IT? Like many young adults in college I wasn’t too sure about what I specifically wanted to do but after attending an information session with Anderson …
