“Sociotechnical education is our way of talking about how to help students recognize the complex interconnection of the social and the technical. We bring students together from different majors, give them real problems to tackle, and then challenge them with reading and discussions that force them to face their own assumptions.” —Gordon Hoople “As we […]

This is the second blog post derived from the recent DZone webinar given by Rob Richardson, technical evangelist at MemSQL. (From the link, you can easily download the slides and stream the webinar.) Kubernetes was originally developed to manage containers running stateless workloads, such as computation-intensive processing tasks and web servers. It was then extended to allow you to manage stateful workloads, such as data tables and e-commerce sessions, but doing so is not easy. Rob is one of the relatively few people who have figured out how to do this well.  The webinar was well-attended, with a solid Q&A …

Kubernetes was originally developed to manage containers running stateless workloads, such as computation-intensive processing tasks and webservers. It was then extended to stateful workloads, such as data tables and e-commerce sessions. One of the people who has figured out how to do this well is our own Rob Richardson, technical evangelist at MemSQL. In a recent DZone webinar, this three-part webinar series, Rob shows you how to build stateful workloads in Kubernetes. (From the link, you can easily download the slides and stream the webinar.)  The blog post was well-attended, with a solid Q&A session at the end. There’s so …

Once one starts their journey in data streaming, one starts to discover a lot of applications beyond just the standard Extract-Transform-Load pattern. The traditional model to deliver a new version of a Java application is to stop the process, deploy the new JAR/WAR, and start the process again. This directly results in downtime: in this […]

Kafka with Debezium and GridGain connectors allows synchronizing data between third party Databases and a GridGain cluster. This change data capture based synchronization can be done without any coding; all it requires is to prepare configuration files for each of the points. Developers and architects who can’t yet fully move from a legacy system can deploy this solution to give a performance boost to their applications or allow applications to access data from multiple data silos into one place.

On March 16, 2020, at 9:26 PM, I received an urgent email from my friend DJ Patil, former White House Chief Data Scientist, Head of Technology for Devoted Health, a Senior Fellow at the Belfer Center at the Harvard Kennedy School, and Advisor to Venrock Partners. You don’t get that many titles after your name unless you’re pretty good at something. For DJ, that “something” is math and computer science.

DJ was writing to me from the California crisis command center. He explained that he was working with governors from across the country to model the potential impact of COVID-19 for scenario planning. He wanted to help them answer critical questions, like “How many hospital beds will we need?” and “Can we reduce the spread if we temporarily close places where people gather?” and “Should we issue a shelter-in-place order and for how long?” While nobody can predict the future, modeling the virus with all the…

Analyst firm 451 Research has come up with new research that sees a bright future for HOAP – hybrid operational and analytical processing. The report is titled 451 Perspective: A HOAP-ful future for hybrid operational and analytical processing. This new type of processing has received several different names, from different analyst firms and consultancies: HTAP (Gartner’s name for it) Translytical processing (from Forrester) Operational analytics (the favorite amongst consultancies) By any of these names, this new style of data processing – which unifies transactions and operational analytics, including many data warehousing-type functions – is widely believed to have a bright …
