Apache Spark is a distributed computing framework with implicit parallelism and fault-tolerance. The Ampool ADS is distributed in-memory store with built-in fault-tolerance. Typically Apache Spark caches data into its executor memory for faster processing and then uses the underlying disk based stores as and when needed. The data fetched is immutable and typically it is […]

Continuing from our previous post on mutable tables, Introducing MTable, we now see how we can interact with this data abstraction through REST API’s. The Ampool developer REST interface runs as an embedded HTTP or HTTPS service (Jetty server) within an Ampool ADS server. For the purpose of documentation, the developer REST API’s are also integrated with […]

After reflecting on my career path over the last couple of years, I have come to a decision point where it’s important for me to exercise my passion to it’s fullest potential. Yes, this does involve a job change. I’m happy to announce that I am joining the Nutanix field team as a Sr. Systems Engineer in Atlanta. 

This decision really came down to recognizing the importance of humanizing solutions and technology where a positive impact can be realized. If one humanizes a product or service, it can break down barriers and allow a solution to become more relatable. This to me means being on the front lines where you hear and see first hand how technologies can have a true positive impact. So, job title, status, salary, how many twitter followers one has etc.… are not really at the top of the list of importance.

Nutanix is a company that has some…

The previous post discussed about the mutable data in Ampool Active Data Store (ADS). Here we will discuss about how Ampool ADS enables you to deal with very large volume of immutable data. The FTable stands for “flow-table” and it enables fast ingestion of very large amount of immutable data (aka facts data). The data is internally […]
