Stuff The Internet Says On Scalability For August 31st, 2018

Hey, it’s HighScalability time:

This mind blowing creation is from John Williamson. It’s the first million integers, represented as binary vectors indicating their prime factors, laid out with UMAP. No, I really have no idea what that means either, but it did make me consider that our universe could be created by an algorithm. What are the wiggly cycles on the periphery? Groups of numbers that share a minimum amount of prime factors, further out groups are numbers that have increasing amounts of shared prime factors. So the primes are at the core, ungrouped as they have no prime factors to use to join…

Public Cloud Postcentralization is the Thin Edge of the Wedge into the Enterprise

 
Like an amoeba the public cloud is extending fingerlike projections to the edge in a new kind of architecture that creates a world spanning distributed infrastructure under one centralized management, billing, and security domain.

Centralization can refer to the locus of computation, but it also refers to a boundary, to a domain of control.

The Anna Key-Value Store Now Has 355x the Performance of DynamoDB for the Dollar

 

New databases used to be announced seemingly every week. While database neogenesis has slowed down considerably, it has not gone necrotic.
RISELabs, those wonderfully innovative folks over at Berkeley, have uplifted their Anna datatabase—a shared-nothing, thread-per-core architecture to achieve lightning-fast speeds by avoiding all coordination mechanisms—to become cloud-aware.
What’s changed?

Anna is not only incredibly fast, it’s incredibly efficient and elastic too: an autoscaling, multi-tier, selectively-replicating cloud service. All that adaptivity means that Anna ramps down resource consumption for cold things, and ramps up consumption for hot things. You get all the multicore Anna performance you want, but you don’t pay for what you…
