VMware hires key developer for Redis

Derek_collison Posted by Derek Collison
Cloud Service Division

I am pleased to announce that Salvatore Sanfilippo, the key developer for Redis, has decided to join the VMware engineering team. Redis is a high performance and scalable advanced key-value store where values can be data structures such as lists, sets, and hashmaps, as well as strings and blobs. Redis supports atomic operations on these data structures, allowing extremely high performance with consistent state to many client applications.

As VMware continues its investments in the context of cloud computing, technologies such as Redis become key for future cloud based apps, whether private or public cloud, and the cloud infrastructure itself. Large scale systems benefit greatly when there are alternatives to storing state within a centralized relational store (RDBMS). Many Redis customers have already experienced the tremendous benefit of storing select pieces of data within Redis for fast access, customized layout and access patterns. Some have used Redis exclusively, forgoing a relational database all together, since Redis offers several ways to persist the data it manages.

As cloud computing continues to push the bounds of how we define a cloud application, many exciting and new technologies will join the relational database as a means to store and retrieve data. Cloud based infrastructure itself has led the way in this regard, pushing the envelope for scale, performance, and access to large distributed data. This is most evident in Google's App Engine, utilizing several pieces of key technologies like BigTable to store data at scale.

VMware believes these technologies should be beneficial to all. The openness of the cloud computing community matches well with the open source nature of Redis and joins our open source efforts that currently include Spring and Zimbra.  VMware is committed to Redis and the open source community, and therefore in having Salvatore continue his valuable work with Redis. Everyone is encouraged to learn more about Redis and use it within their systems.

There are several places on the internet to find information regarding Redis. If you do not already know about Redis, I encourage you to learn more from some of the links listed below.

  • Redis Project Home
  • Redis Intro - Zen and the Art of Programming
  • Mountain West Ruby Conference Presentation by Ezra Zygmuntowicz
  • Redis: Data Cheeseburgers
  • Try Redis 
  • Welcome Salvatore and Redis to VMware!

    Top 5 Planet V12n blog posts week 10

    Busy week coming up. A full week of VCDX defenses again. This time we will conduct VCDX Defense interviews in Munich. I think we have over 10 candidates from 6 different countries and I am confident it is going to be fun again. Well at least for the people on the panel :-). No pressure guys... Anyway, before I pack my stuff to fly to Munich I wanted to give you this weeks Top 5. 

    • Jason Boche - vpxd.cfg Advanced Configuration
      vpxd.cfg is an XML formatted file which can be modified to alter the native behavior of the VMware vCenter Server. Sparse references on the internet document the changes that can be made in this environment. Inspired by Ulli Hankeln, the purpose of this blog post is to collect and document all known, unknown, supported, and unsupported vpxd.cfg modifications in a centralized location.
    • Duncan Epping - Reclaiming idle memory
      By default the balloon driver is used to reclaim idle memory. The balloon driver is in fact used as some operating systems only update there internal free memory map. Basically what I am saying is that the hypervisor is unaware of the fact that specific pages are unused as they might still contain data and the GOS(Guest Operating System) will not report to the hypervisor that the pages are not being used anymore. The balloon driver is used to notify the GOS that there is a lack of memory.
    • Dave Convery - vShield Zones – Some Serious Gotchas
      vShield Zones seems to be the perfect solution for this. It works almost seamlessly with vCenter and the underlying ESXi hosts. It provides hardened Linux Virtual Appliances (vShield Agents) to provide the firewalling. It provides a fairly nice management interface to create the firewall rules and distribute them to the vShield Agents. Best of all, IT’S FREE! At least for vSphere Advanced versions and above. Keep in mind, that this is still considered a 1.x release and some things need to be worked out.
    • Frank Denneman - Removing an orphaned Nexus DVS
      When installing the Cisco Nexus 1000V VSM, the VSM uses an extension-key for identification. During the configuration process the VSM spawns a DVS and will configure it with the same extension-key. Due to the matching extension keys (extension session) the VSM owns the DVS essentially. And only the VSM with the same extension-key as the DVS can delete the DVS.
    • Eric Sloof - The vmClient 4.0 is released
      The vmClient is a lightweight tool which enables you to control the power of your virtual machines, it’s also capable of presenting the MKS console of your virtual machines. Before you can use the vmClient, you have to install the vSphere client on the same system. After starting the vmClient, you can logon to your vCenter server or individual ESX4 or ESX4i host. A list with available virtual machines will be presented after choosing the Virtual Machines menu item, you can also easily identify the power state of the virtual machines. Grey is powered off, green is powered on, yellow is suspended and red indicates that the virtual machine has an alarm. When you’re working in an RDP session there’s a menu item which can generate a Ctrl-Alt-Del in the guest OS instead of pressing Ctrl-Alt-Ins. The vmClient can run without borders in borderless mode. The menu bar has an option to search for virtual machines, just type in the first characters of your virtual machine name and the list will be filtered.
