It has been over 50 years since Gordon Moore saw that transistor density doubles every two years.  Over the decades, the interpretation of “Moore’s Law” has evolved to represent that the performance of microprocessors, and computers in general, is doubling every 18 months.

Why Two Tech Legends Changed Their Minds About The Future of Computers

In 1984, Ike Nassi, now an accomplished technologist and entrepreneur, was vice president of research at Encore Computer.  He and his colleagues, along with Encore co-founder Gordon Bell, the legendary engineering vice president at Digital Equipment Corp. and originator of Bell’s Law of computer classes, submitted a proposal to DARPA. They hoped the defense-focused research agency would fund the development of a distributed approach to strongly coherent shared memory.  The work was founded on the notion that applications are more easily written, and deliver results sooner, when the data is entirely resident in memory.

TidalScale’s WaveRunner – the point-and-click control panel that makes creating a right-sized Software-Defined Server fast, flexible and easy – isn’t just about creating one or more virtual servers from multiple commodity systems. It also puts you in control of all the software-defined pieces in the data center. So in addition to cores and memory, WaveRunner allows you to monitor and manage storage and networks. You simply pick the software-defined resources you need and plug them together.

A new report projects that the global Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) market will grow at a 22 percent compound annual growth rate through 2021. The authors, an India-based outfit called Wise Guy Consultants, estimate that the total market size for SDDC goods and services will reach $81.4 billion in the same period.
