2021 is going to be a launchpad for change, and here’s what’s coming

2020 was a year unlike any other. Businesses large and small, governments new and old all had to completely change what they do and how they operate. Helping us to manage this dramatic change was technology. Whether it was Blackboard continuing our children’s education, Zoom becoming our business boardroom (and our pub), or Netflix being our night out at the movies, we relied on technology to help feed our families, teach our children, collaborate with co-workers, even entertain ourselves after yet another day in the house. Rather than slow us down, 2020 accelerated our shift to a digital world and I anticipate we won’t go back any time soon. Thanks to this acceleration, from my vantage point, 2021 is going to be a launchpad for all kinds of change,…

The pandemic has been devastating for many, but it has also presented opportunities for us to advance the way we live work and play. We are accelerating the use of technology in ways we have never seen, and while we have lost many things, we also have many things to be thankful for.

SingleStore Universal Storage technology is a dramatic evolution of our columnstore data format that allows it to support both operational and analytical workloads with low total cost of ownership (TCO). People love our rowstores for OLTP-style access patterns because of our great performance based on memory-optimized data structures and compilation of queries to machine code. But for users with large data sets, the cost of providing servers with enough RAM to hold all the data started to be significant. Universal Storage solves this cost problem, while also providing even better analytical performance via query execution that takes advantage of columnar …

In this article, we look at how transactions work in Apache Ignite. We begin with an overview of Ignite’s transaction architecture and then illustrate how tracing can be used to inspect transaction logic. Finally, we review a few simple examples that show how transactions work (and why they might not work).

Our customers never stop building. And because they never stop, their need for security, availability, performance, scalability, and flexibility over how they choose to run their workloads never stop. At AWS, we are customer obsessed, so we never stop building either. That is why we have created more than 175 services, which we offer from 24 AWS Regions around the world to give our customers the best possible cloud experience, no matter where they are. We are excited to be announcing plans to launch a second infrastructure region in Australia in the second half of 2022. The new AWS Asia Pacific Region will be located in the Australian city of Melbourne and will deliver even lower latency to customers and their end users in Asia Pacific.

Abstract Many organizations today are looking for ways to run Machine Learning (ML) models in operational systems at scale. Data Scientists can now take models that they build in SageMaker and deploy them as user-defined functions within our general purpose, relational database. Read more about how you can accelerate the execution of your models against real time data. You can also find in-depth notebooks detailing how to implement this on GitHub. Setting the Stage AWS SageMaker has quickly become one of the most widely used data science platforms in the market today. Evidence suggests that even though there has been …

We can’t listen to Newton walk us through the early days of physics, or Darwin chatting about the origins of his “Origins of Species” work. However, we can hear about the early years of artificial intelligence (AI) from one of its creators—Yann LeCun. Yann is a distinguished professor at NYU, the Chief AI Scientist at ...continue reading The Oral History of AI

I once heard that a “book worth reading is worth reading twice”, and I’ve found this to be true about other things as well. There’s a documentation page that’s been with me for the majority of my professional career; a page that I keep coming back to and that I’ve read from start to finish, without skipping a word, more than a few times in the last few years. This document is GitLab’s Embracing Asynchronous Communication guide, a section of GitLab’s public handbook that goes over their approach to asynchronous communication as a business. To provide you with some context, …

Imagine that we need to build a monitoring infrastructure for a distributed database, such as Apache Ignite. Let’s put metrics into Prometheus. And, let’s draw charts in Grafana. Let’s not forget about the notification system—we’ll set up Zabbix for that. Let’s use Jaeger for traces analysis. For state management, the CLI will do. As for SQL queries, let’s use a free JDBC client, such as DBeaver.
