and in a parallel universe NetApp announce NUCSP.

Today NetApp announce their Unified Compute and Storage Platform (NUCSP)

NetApp have taken their OnTap 8.x platform and advantage of the many cores that are now available within their scale up and out clusters to provide general purpose compute services that are located close to storage.

OnTap 8.x (based on an open source Unix derivative) is now pre-loaded with a hypervisor that allows them to run both their native storage software and also general purpose operating systems.

This is rumoured to also allow them to complete their Bycast integration, not by integrating into the OnTap suite of software, but running as a separate OS instance within the hypervisor
