This competitive review between Red Hat and TIBCO integration technologies has presented multiple differences between the products.
A notable difference is that only Red Hat JBoss Fuse is a 100% open source product. Red Hat is committed to leveraging existing open source projects and using open standards whenever possible for both product implementation and integration communication. This includes Camel, the de-facto integration standard included with Red Hat JBoss Fuse. Red Hat’s open source commitment extends to Active MQ, the upstream messaging technology used with JBoss A-MQ and included with Red Hat JBoss Fuse.
Another difference is that Red Hat JBoss Fuse clustering is based on the upstream Fabric8 community project and offers much more functionality than TIBCO clustering options.

The evolution of genomics in recent decades has seen the volume of sequencing rise dramatically as a result of lower costs. Massive growth in the quantities of data created by sequencing has greatly increased analytical challenges, and placed ever-increasing demands on compute and storage infrastructure. Researchers have leveraged high-performance computing environments and cluster computing to meet demands, but today even the fastest compute environments are constrained by the lagging performance of underlying storage.

Today’s data volume, variety, and velocity has made relational database nearly obsolete for handling certain types of workloads. But it’s also put incredible strain on regular NoSQL databases. The key is to find one that can deliver the infinite scale and high availability required to support high volume, web-scale applications in clustered environments. This white paper details the capabilities and uses case of an Active Everywhere database
Headquartered in Chicago, Bean Suntory owns over 70 premium spirit brands from whiskey and rum, to vodka, cognac, tequila, and gin. Beam Suntory generates $4 billion in annual revenues.
But that revenue was in danger.
The company’s production software, Wonderware, which controls embedded systems driving almost every critical production process, was underpinned by ageing hardware. If it failed, production would come to a grinding—and expensive—halt.Every hour of downtime results in lost production, which can amount to millions of dollars in losses,” says Sanjay Kirtikar, Director Digital Technologies, Beam Suntory.
To ensure Wonderware never failed, Beam Suntory implemented hyperconverged clusters integrated with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform software
The results were instant and outstanding. Beam Suntory expects a 25-35% cost benefit from lower support and maintenance efforts, and a 50% reduction in power usage.

In this report we’ll explore comparing the cost of an on-site hyperconverged solution with a comparable set up in the cloud. The on-site infrastructure is a Dell EMC VxRailTM hyperconverged appliance cluster and the cloud solution is Amazon Web Services (AWS).
This white paper discusses the concept of shared data scale-out clusters, as well as how they deliver continuous availability and why they are important for delivering scalable transaction processing support.
"Storage system architectures are shifting from large scale-up approaches to scale-out of clustered storage approaches. The need to increase the levels of storage and application availability, performance, and scalability while eliminating infrastructure or application downtime has necessitated such an architectural shift.
This paper looks at the adoption and benefits of clustered storage among firms of different sizes and geographic locations. Access this paper now to discover how clustered storage offerings meet firms’ key requirements for clustered storage solutions and the benefits including:
Scalability and availability
"Storage system architectures are moving away from monolithic scale-up approaches and adopting scale-out storage – providing a powerful and flexible way to respond to the inevitable data growth and data management challenges in today’s environments. With extensive data growth demands, there needs to be an increase in the levels of storage and application availability, performance, and scalability.
Access this technical report that provides an overview of NetApp clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 and shows how it incorporates industry-leading unified architecture, non-disruptive operations, proven storage efficiency, and seamless scalability."
"As IT continues to implement advanced capabilities, as well as traditional services such as server virtualization, storage systems become more complex. The complexity only increases because of the rapid growth of data that needs to be managed.
View this resource to learn the results of ESG Lab hands-on evaluation of NetApp storage systems with a focus on those enterprise-class capabilities required to manage increasingly large and complex storage environments."
"Today, IT’s customers are more mobile and global than ever before and as such expect their applications and data to be available 24x7. Interruptions, whether planned or unplanned, can have a major impact to the bottom line of the business.
ESG Lab tested the ability of clustered Data ONTAP to provide continuous application availability and evaluated performance for both SAN and NAS configurations while running an Oracle OLTP workload. Check out this report to see the results."
"Today’s data centers are being asked to do more at less expense and with little or no disruption to company operations. They’re also expected to run 24x7, handle numerous new application deployments and manage explosive data growth. Data storage limitations can make it difficult to meet these stringent demands.
Faced with these challenges, CIOs are discovering that the “rip and replace” disruptive migration method of improving storage capacity and IO performance no longer works. Access this white paper to discover a new version of NetApps storage operating environment. Find out how this software update eliminates many of the problems associated with typical monolithic or legacy storage systems."
IT teams are working harder than ever in the face of massive data growth, complex operations, and time and budget constraints. Access this white paper to discover an operating system that addresses the limitations of traditional approaches to IT, removing IT constraints and allowing you to respond to business demands more readily.
As business requirements drive the need for a hybrid cloud strategy, companies must determine how best to run their applications and manage their data—whether in their private data center, near the cloud, or in the cloud. Hyperscale cloud providers offer excellent flexibility by allowing customers to buy raw resources in a consumption model by the hour. NetApp® has released a new way of deploying the cluster Data ONTAP® operating system that runs on hyperscale resources, that when combined with NetApp Private Storage for Cloud, offers customers superior choice in how they manage their cloud storage.
NetApp Flash Pool is a storage cache option within the NetApp Virtual Storage Tier product family, available for NetApp FAS storage systems. A Flash Pool configures solid state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs) into a single storage pool, known as an “aggregate” in NetApp parlance, with the SSDs providing a fast response time cache for volumes that are provisioned on the Flash Pool aggregate.
In this lab evaluation, NetApp commissioned Demartek to evaluate the effectiveness of Flash Pool with different types and numbers of hard disk drives using an online transaction processing (OLTP) database workload, and to evaluate the performance of Flash Pool in a clustered Data ONTAP environment during a cluster storage node failover scenario.
In the report, you’ll dis cover how Demartek test engineers documented a 283% gain in IOPS and a reduction in latency by a factor of 66x after incorporating NetApp Flash Pool technology.
This white paper discusses a new active/active stretched cluster technology that allows companies of all sizes to achieve the highest levels of business continuity without the costs and complexities that have typically marked this type of deployment in the past.
Pure Storage® Purity ActiveCluster is a fully symmetric active/active bidirectional replication solution that provides synchronous replication for RPO zero and automatic transparent failover for RTO zero. ActiveCluster spans multiple sites enabling clustered arrays and clustered hosts to be used to deploy flexible active/active datacenter configurations.
IBM's recently released DB2 version 11.1 for Linux, Unix and Windows (LUW) is a hybrid database that IBM says can handle transactional and analytic workloads thanks to its BLU Acceleration technology, which features an in-memory column store for analytical workloads that can scale across a massively parallel cluster.
DB2 is a proven database for handling the most demanding transactional workloads. But the trend as of
late is to enable relational databases to handle analytic queries more efficiently by adding an inmemory
column store alongside to aggregate data and provide faster results. IBM's BLU Acceleration
technology does exactly that. While BLU isn't brand new, the ability to spread the column store across
a massively parallel processing (MPP) cluster of up to 1,000 nodes is a new addition to the technology.
That, along with simpler monthly pricing options and integration with dashDB data warehousing in the
cloud, makes DB2 for LUW, a very versatile database.
Emerging information technologies like composite and multi-tier applications, service oriented architectures (SOA), virtualization, grid and cluster computing, and Web Service-based application delivery create an extraordinary opportunity for IT managers. With these dynamic technologies, they can provide business owners with IT services that are extremely flexible and agile, driving a more dynamic and competitive business.

CA's vision is to unify and simplify the management of enterprise-wide IT. The rapidly growing use of virtualization and clustering in enterprise infrastructures provides a rich environment for increasing complexity. Unlike physically bounded infrastructures, the logical entities in virtualized and clustered environments are not visually apparent. Nevertheless, one needs to know what resources one has and if one is using those resources to their fullest capacity.
