Over the last two decades, commodity hardware has changed
dramatically. In parallel, Big Data, NOSQL and other non-relational
stores are becoming mainstream. Yet these applications access hardware
via a legacy storage stack – FS, buffer cache, LVM, RAID – built for
the hardware and applications of the 80s. Acunu is rewriting the
storage stack for these applications and today's hardware, and at the
same time deploying some very new algorithms and techniques.
We'll give some background to Acunu, a bit about our algorithms, and
discuss how developers can make use of it, and why you should want if
you're dealing with enterprise deployments.
