How do the cloud offerings from Amazon, Google and Microsoft compare?
Fundamentally, Project Denali standardizes the SSD firmware interfaces by disaggregating the functionality for software defined data layout and media management. With Project Denali, customers can achieve greater levels of performance, while leveraging the cost-reduction economics that come at cloud scale. Media management, error correction, mapping of bad blocks and other functionality specific to the flash generation stays on the device while the host receives random writes, transmits streams of sequential writes, maintains the address map, and performs garbage collection. Denali allows for support of FPGAs or microcontrollers on the host side. This provides an architectural framework that is truly cloud first.

Big data and cloud technology go hand-in-hand. Big data needs clusters of servers for processing, which clouds can readily provide. So goes the marketing message, but what does that look like in reality? You buy time on these services, and install and configure your own software, such as a Hadoop cluster or NoSQL database. You can use orchestration frameworks, which handle the management of resources, and automated infrastructure tools, which handle server installation and configuration.
