First distributed file system for STAC M3 benchmarks

But, of course

So I ran out of space on my travel laptops small SSD. I wanted to update to a larger SSD, and I figured I’d move my partitions over and resize. But the gods would not allow for such an operation as they have in the past. Oh no. Upon switching out the 120 GB Intel […]

Starting to build the Tiburon Data Store

This is fun, basically something that I’ve wanted to do, and it gets me closer to the point where I’ve wanted to be for a while … building TREDS (Tiburon REliable Data Store). Code is up in the IDE, and I am building the CRUD and metadata portions now. If all goes well (it never […]
