NVMe Poised To Revolutionize Solid-State Storage

02 May 2014, Posted by Rayboy Insider Search in News

File I/O stacks in operating systems are a great example for schools to teach Parkinson’s Law, which says that software expands to use the resources available. Last time I counted, the current Linux stack with an attached SSD has a total of six or seven address translations. That’s a huge software overhead, and you might be forgiven for wondering if the objective of the fastest I/O got lost in translation!PCIe-SSD-M2

Fortunately, relief is at hand. The industry has created a new standard that enterprise SSD vendors are aggressively picking up: NVMe. The idea seems so simple that you wonder why we didn’t go there before, but IT is often very conservative, and this is a radical change.

NVMe stands for “Non-Volatile Memory express.” The hardware part of the solution takes away the disk interface chip that used to plug into PCIe on the motherboard, and this allows the drive to talk directly to the PCIe bus and so to system memory. This idea isn’t quite as radical as it sounds. Electrically, PCIe and SAS/SATA are very similar, so it’s more a protocol change than a completely new concept.

Can Facebook Bring Back Optical Storage?

05 Mar 2014, Posted by Rayboy Insider Search in News

Facebook-LogoLike most in the storage business, I haven’t paid a lot of attention to optical disks since Plasmon went into receivership in 2009. Sure, 9GB magneto-optical WORM disks were the medium of choice for compliance archives at the turn of the century, but software-based WORM systems such as EMC Centera and NetApp SnapLock could store more data and access it faster. As magnetic disk and tape capacities steadily increased and optical capacity stalled at 60GB in Plasmon’s UDO2, I figured optical storage’s day had come and gone.

However, at last week’s Open Compute Summit, Facebook Vice President of Infrastructure Engineering Jay Parikh demonstrated a prototype Blu-ray library for cold data storage. Does this mean optical storage due for a comeback? Or is this a solution only Facebook could love?

While most organizations have a constantly growing pool of data that needs to be retained but isn’t actively accessed, Facebook’s endless collection of frat boy selfies and kitty photos dwarfs pretty much anyone else’s. Parikh said the company just brought up its first cold storage facility holding 30PB of data and expects to have 150PB of cold data in just a few months.

Moral and ethical concerns aside, workplace experts agree that lying on a resume or cover letter is always a bad idea, especially because it’s so easy for employers to uncover the truth.

Apart from the easy access to information that Google alone will provide, many companies have become much more proactive about conducting formal background checks, even enlisting the help of burgeoning software programs that determine the level of common ground between what job candidates say about themselves and what their former employers/references have to say about them.

“In today’s information age of social networks and other technology advancements, it’s much easier for companies and prospective employers to do due diligence on candidates,” says Jordan Rayboy, president and CEO of Rayboy Insider Search. “Being less than truthful on a resume is more likely than ever to come out.”

Radio: Jordan Rayboy’s Open Road – Season 1, Episode 3

12 Sep 2011, Posted by Rayboy Insider Search in News

By Jim Shaki on 05 September 2011

On this episode of Jordan Rayboy’s Open Road, I get to be in the drivers seat asking the questions to… you guessed it, Jordan himself. What makes this interview interesting is Jordan’s perspective on how corporations around the world are investing heavily on their social media foot prints: Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn and even internal job boards designed to gather candidates in a social environment where they can get to know each other by playing “sticky” tactical games with employees and invited friends, all the while being a single degree of separation from their HR division.

The digital architecture is readily available and any good recruiter worth their weight in gold knows that innovations in technology have leveled the playing field from a researchers point-of-view. Is this truly the end of executive recruiting as we know it? Who will survive Web 3.0?

Business conventions, trade shows and conferences hold a place in the public imagination as events where careers can be ruined by an untimely rendezvous with a co-worker, a hooker or a bottle of Jack Daniel’s. But if approached strategically, conventions can offer a prime opportunity for career advancement. With a bit of discipline, conventioneers can mix fun with landing contacts, learning the latest industry developments and getting the wheels turning on new deals.

“In these events, the playing field is leveled. There’s no one you should not or could not be speaking to,” says Amy Ogden, p.r. director at Gable Public Relations and a longtime convention goer.

“Go for the high-hanging fruit. They’re in the same room as you are. And people are a little less on guard.”

To help you make the most of the opportunity, @work interviewed convention veterans for tips on how to successfully navigate the floor. Read on for their advice about which presenters to talk to, how eating habits can lose you a job and when a trip to a strip club could enrich more than just the onstage talent.

* Be PREPARED Your convention experience will be much more efficient with a few minutes of preparation.

Get a list of attendees — most conventions are more than willing to share it to help juice attendance — and select the people you want to meet. Then schedule time with them before the big event, says Ogden.

“You’ve got to get bold and reach out in advance and say, ‘Hey, so you’re going to be at this conference. I’m going to be there, too. We should get together.’ Look at it as a relationship-building opportunity,” she says.

And do some prep work on the speakers you’d like to hear and meet, says communications trainer Matt Eventoff, adding that you can research most speakers using a smartphone while waiting at the airport. When your time comes to make an impression after the presentation, you’ll come across as knowledgeable rather than as a fanboy at a sci-fi convention accosting the guy who played Chewbacca in “Star Wars.”

* Overdress. Attending a convention doesn’t require you to dress conventionally. Suit it up to make a good impression.

“Sixty to 80 percent of the people are probably going to be dressed in company golf shirts and slacks or khakis,” says Jordan Rayboy, head of the IT executive recruiting firm Rayboy Insider Search. “If you wear a suit, you’ll be standing out, probably in a good way.”
