The Complexity of Clusters and Why Clusters are So Different

Blog-post by,

I've been building clusters for my entire professional career and I've known that clusters are different, but never could quite articulate why. Until now.

After having many conversations with operations team members from a broad cross-section of enterprises, I now have a handle on why clusters are so different from farms of single-purpose servers that reside in traditional data centers.

We had a very robust Twitter chat about which emerging technologies and which ones aren't. Such an open ended question always sparks debate, but the answers are pretty obvious - Big Data and then cloud and are most important while the value of wearables and Internet of Things are less well understood. There was almost no mention of mobile and we had at least four CIO types in the chat!

We also danced around the issue with many Tweets talking about what would make an emerging technology important - supporting the business strategy and end users, good governance and so forth.

Quite simply, it is one whose IT foundation is based on cloud, Big Data/analytics, Mobile and social/collaboration - all in support of business goals. That is the digital enterprise and to get there you must pass through something called digital transformation. When you actually arrive is anyone's guess, but the CIO should know when he or she sees or feels it.

This is one of those posts that basically wrote itself as the result of an internal e-mail discussion. My nonsense detector was loudly going off.
