IoT Infrastructure: Stepping Ever Closer to the Edge

Cloud computing, data mobility and the Internet of Things (IoT) are pushing more of the enterprise workload onto the Internet, which naturally leads to increased latency, service interruptions and general frustration over the state of modern digital communications. But while telcos and other carriers have done a good job at maintaining available bandwidth, satisfying the […] Read More

Edge Computing Becomes ‘Wild West’ of IT World

Among other benefits, edge computing — a critical component for many IoT applications — can boost performance and enhance security. But it isn’t without its challenges. End users don’t necessarily care where and how data is stored and processed. They just want to know the job will get done quickly, securely and with as few […] Read More

Ryft: Bringing High Performance Analytics to Every Enterprise

In this video from the HPC User Forum in Tucson, Pat McGarry from Ryft presents: Bringing High Performance Analytics to Every Enterprise – Making Big Data Instantly Relevant. “Any search tool can match an exact query to structured data—but only after all of the data is indexed. What happens when there are variations? What if the data […] Read More

Lessons Learned at IoT Slam

By Françoise von Trapp, Editor-at-Large, IPSO Alliance This was my first IoT Slam, as well as my first-ever virtual event. I spent eight-straight hours attending as many real-time events as I could fit into my schedule (some overlapped), and came away with an abundance of information that I will attempt to boil down into what […] Read More

The Future of the Data Center: Heterogeneous Computing

    “The whole point of Heterogeneous Computing is to have the right tools available, so you can use the right processor, in the right place, at the right time,” said Pat McGarry, the VP of Engineering at Ryft in a recent DATAVERSITY® interview. Such a statement certainly sounds both pertinent and beneficial, but in […] Read More

Ryft says its new fuzzy search engine is 600x faster than traditional alternatives

Even though organizations are replacing more and more of their proprietary infrastructure with commodity gear, not every workload is better served by x86-based servers. According to the Maryland-based Ryft Systems Inc., data search is one such use case. The vendor claims that its namesake appliance can help improve query performance by up to 600 times […] Read More

Perfecting Sensor Data Analytics with Cyberforaging

One of the most significant points of evolution in the modern data landscape is the inexorable transition of a centralized model of data management to a decentralized, distributed one. The harbingers of this change include: Big Data: The sheer amounts of data, and speeds at which they are generated today, result in frequently occurring situations […] Read More
