  • newBack to Tech Field Day
    I’m very proud and honored to be invited at the 13rd edition of Tech Field Day (#TFD13) that will be in Austin the first week of February (February 1–3, 2017). After some Virtualization Field Day, one Data Field Day and some Tech Field Day Extra, I’m back for the first time in Austin and for the first time at a Tech Field Day (TFD) event format. The TFD event format replaced the Virtualization Field Day (VFD) event format more than one year ago (maybe because the buzzword virtualization is no more attractive). But to be […]The post Back to Tech Field Day appeared first on vInfrastructure Blog.

    In this post, I’d like to share a script I wrote to help with converting Outline Processor Markup Language (OPML) documents to Markdown. If you read the recent update on my Linux migration plans, you may recall that I identified OPML files (created in OmniOutliner) as an area where some work was going to be required. This script is the result of my efforts in this area.

  • Some Reading on Application Containers
    One aspect of my pending migration to Ubuntu Linux on my primary laptop has been the opportunity to explore “non-traditional” uses for Linux containers. In particular, the idea of using Docker (or systemd-nspawn or rkt) to serve as a sandbox (of sorts) for GUI applications really intrigues me. This isn’t a use case that many of the container mechanisms are aiming to solve, but it’s an interesting use case nevertheless (to me, anyway).

  • Looking Back: 2016 Project Report Card
    As I’ve done for the last few years, in early 2016 I published a list of my planned personal projects for the year. In this post, I’d like to look back on that list of projects and grade myself on my progress (or lack of progress, if that is the case). Even though 2016 isn’t over yet, it’s close enough to the end of the year that things won’t change that much before 2017 is upon us.

  • newThe Devil’s in the DRAM with Diablo Technologies
    Diablo Technologies doesn't think RAM is bad. Quite the opposite, they think we don't have access to enough of it. As everyone from the Fortune 500 enterprise to Hyperscale corporations turn increasingly to Big Data, RAM is at a premium. Diablo's solution to this is called Memory1. This takes abundant flash storage and make it byte addressable. With this, they are able to provide 128GB DDR4 flash memory DIMMs, with the implication being that a standard dual-socket x86 server now has system memory in the terabyte range.You might also be interested in...Diablo Technologies is shaking up the flash market, again#TFDx report — Really fast host side flash with Diablo…IBM Launches Flash DIMMsSSD Storage Closer to CPU – That’s Memory…NVMe for Absolute BeginnersThe post The Devil’s in the DRAM with Diablo Technologies appeared first on Gestalt IT.
