TidalScale Open APIs Improve Data Center Utilization by Orders of Magnitude

How the WaveRunner API Enables Tomorrow’s SDDC Innovation, Today

Guest blog post by Chris Busse, CTO at APIvista

In my consulting work, I encourage enterprises of many sizes to use standardized APIs across their business areas. This means I’m often called upon to explain what an application programming interface is to non-technical stakeholders. Many technologists say, "APIs are like LEGO bricks," but I prefer a more complete description: "They’re a way developers can make their software available to future developers to integrate with, but without having to know today what those future developers want to do with the software." Put yet…

Ignite is the in-memory computing platformthat is durable, strongly consistent, and highly availablewith powerful SQL, key-value and processing APIsStarting with 2.1 release, Apache Ignite has become one of a very few in-memory computing systems that provides its own distributed persistence layer. Essentially, users do not have to integrate Ignite with any type of 3rd party databases (although such integration is still supported), and start using Ignite as a primary storage of their data on disk and in memory.So, what makes Ignite data storage unique? Let us look at a few important features provided by Ignite. You will probably notice that some of these features can also be seen in other data storage systems. However, it is the combination of these features in one cohesive platform that makes Ignite stand out among others. 

1. Durable Memory

Ignite durable memory component treats RAM not just a caching layer, but…

I trust you’ve already heard or read about SAP Digital Boardroom. Or maybe you’ve even seen one of the many demo showcases we’ve been running at customer events across the globe (always, with fantastic feedback on this amazing solution)? In case you missed it, you can easily enjoy a glimpse of this awesome experience with an overview of how Northern Gas Networks monitors operations with SAP Digital Boardroom in this video or see how it enables the SAP board to run the business in real time (you can watch a…

Introduction
Decision Trees are a type of Supervised Machine Learning (that is you explain what the input is and what the corresponding output is in the training data) where the data is continuously split according to a certain parameter. The tree can be explained by two entities, namely decision nodes and leaves. The leaves are the decisions or the final outcomes. And the decision nodes are where the data is split.
Decision Trees modified
An example of a decision tree can be explained using above binary tree. Let’s say you want to predict whether a person is fit given their information like age, eating habit, and physical activity, etc. The decision nodes here are questions like ‘What’s the age?’, ‘Does he exercise?’, ‘Does he eat a lot…

Spatial Analytics, Predictive Analytics, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning and More.
As you have seen in our previous blog postings in this series, SAP HANA is more than a database technology; it is a platform for digital transformation. In this series, Karl-Heinz Hoffman introduced you to SAP HANA  (Why ISVs should consider SAP HANA) , explained the benefits of the underlying core technology and explained how ISVs can adopt SAP HANA (SAP HANA Adoption Strategies for ISVs). In my previous post, I described the benefits of…

There are significant innovations in the offering of SAP in the SQL Data Warehouse* (SQL DW) space. These innovations have taken place over the past few years, but together provide a solution with which you can build an SQL DW in a different way then you did before. I’m going to write a series of blogs about this. (See the end of the blog for my definition of SQL DW)
To be clear, for Data Warehousing, SAP offers two flavors: SAP Business Warehouse  and SAP HANA SQL DW. You can also perfectly combine the two. However, in this blog I’m treating only the SQL DW topic.
The “Classic” SQL DW
SAP has been supporting the SQL DW for a quite a while already – mostly through products acquired in the past decade. SAP products like Data Services, Information Steward, and PowerDesigner served thousands of SAP Data Warehouse  implementations for decades, and still do.
How does such a data warehouse work? Pick any supported database to run these standalone…

This article will focus on how to create an Apache Ignite cluster that can support the reading and writing of user-defined objects in a common storage format. This is particularly useful in situations where applications need to work with objects but these objects will be accessed by different programming languages and frameworks. Apache Ignite supports a binary format that is particularly useful for this task. We will look at how to achieve the goal of interoperability using some short programming examples.
