Multiboard Database Appliance For Cloud Computing
Developer Abdul Ibrahim and his team are developing a database appliance using multiple Gizmo boards as micro-servers. Each micro-server has direct-attached hard-disc and flash memory storage.
Multiple Gizmo Boards As Micro-servers
The eight micro-servers operate in parallel, appearing on the network as a single logical database server. In addition, an application server and a custom web-server are integrated.
This setup allows web applications to be deployed on the database appliance with access from any mobile device. A very secure encryption algorithm is in place.
Thus Abdul and his team have created the means for a scalable, secure, self-managed cloud infrastructure that can be accessed securely from any device. They are currently developing this into a product that will provide database solutions, extending systems and capabilities to support new emerging workloads, provide access via mobile devices, handle usage growth, accomplish virtual consolidation of existing databases, and enable greater access (only to the right people, of course) with better security.
