For many interactive applications, responsiveness is key to engaging and fluid experiences. However, RAM is expensive. Keeping a large amount of data with Redis can be costly. Given the infrastructure cost, you end up choosing between the following 2 options;
#1: Pay a premium for storing sizable datasets in RAM with Redis OR
#2: Limit Redis database use to the most valuable data and augment Redis with disk-based relational or NoSQL databases.
Redis Enterprise Flash provides a better option #3: Redis Enterprise Flash technology combines RAM and flash to store large data sets in Redis with much lower cost per GB. With Redis Enterprise Flash, you can extend RAM onto Flash devices like NVMe and SATA based SSD drives and keep larger data sets in Redis, all without losing Redis’ performance advantage.
Let’s dig deeper into Redis Enterprise architecture to see how combining flash based SSD drives into the mix work…

Data is flowing and the volume is growing. In recent years, it became fashionable to dump so many numbers about big data in every key note, email and blog post, that I’d need a big data solution just to count that. The bigger the numbers, the more intimidating they become, with the only goal to awe the reader and boast about the insurmountable complexity of the data. Maybe it’s time to stop mentioning how much data is out there and just start understanding it.
Companies that are able to tap into the potential of all this data can unlock the value and find ways to win and drive market disruption. But for some organizations, this surge can be overwhelming, and managing this rapidly growing heterogeneous and distributed data of all sizes, formats, and shapes is even more challenging.
Two weeks ago, we launched the DataOps management solution

The following is a blog by Carl Dubler, Sr. Director, SAP S/4HANA Product Marketing.
 
S/4HANA momentum continues with 4 major releases and over 1,000 live customers. Still, one of the top questions I get is, “Why doesn’t S/4HANA run on Oracle (or any other database besides HANA)?” This is a natural question, especially since SAP partnered with database vendors for our products prior to S/4HANA. Sometimes there is even speculation of an “S/4Oracle.” It’s not going to happen. Continue reading to learn what makes S/4HANA unique, and why ERP running on legacy database…

Use Web Components with Jupyter Notebooks

If you are a Data Scientist, you ought to have worked on a Jupyter Notebook. Notebooks are the simplest form of interface to Python, especially if you want to do some Data Science analytics. Notebooks have clearly become one of the most popular tools for Data Scientists. With continuous improvements, more features and enhanced abilities to ingest data from variety of data sources, this tool is here to stay.
At the same time, interactivity of web applications, using impressive JavaScript visualization libraries, is reaching newer heights by the day. Inspired by some of the recent developments in the area of Web Components, we came up with an idea to combine these two technologies, and enable Data Scientists to work more efficiently with Jupyter Notebooks, thus getting the best of both tools.
So, let’s dive deep in.

Setting the stage

In my previous post, Hitchhiker’s guide to Big Data, we explored the differences and similarities of Big Data versus Business Intelligence and why both are orthogonal to each other.
Based on this knowledge, this post proposes developing an architecture which suits the majority of the use cases. It puts emphasis on flexibility, but also considers cost of development and operations.
The hallmark diagram of the Big Data space is FirstMark’s “Big Data Landscape” (below). It lists all the major players in the various aspects of the Big Data space. (Full text is found here)

The Database In-Memory team would like to thank everyone for attending the In-Memory sessions and Hands On Labs. The response was great and we were able to meet lots of new friends and re-connect with old ones.

I was asked about the HOL lab guide and it is now available in the OOW Session Catalog so you can download it directly from there:

Other presentations are also available in their respective schedule listings.
