Big Data and Fast Data are solving IT challenges long thought to be unreachable. Think of Big Data as an amount of data so large and complex that traditional database management tools are useless. Fast Data, on the other hand, is when that data is put into motion to quickly gather and mine structured and unstructured data so that action can be taken.

Together, Big Data and Fast Data are opening up exciting opportunities. At the same time, this "Big and Fast" wave is pushing the boundaries of the technologies and frameworks we've tended to use for awhile.

In case you didn’t hear,
There’s no way to overstate the importance of this technology. For nearly any use case you can think of, hierarchies are required to know where everything is. SAP Vora enables that organization.
For this reason, SAP Vora was groundbreaking when we first announced it. But this latest version is a critical milestone in the development of the SAP distributed computing platform. Initial SAP Vora versions were primarily SQL on Hadoop, but the vision was to develop a multi-data type and multi-language data processing engine on Hadoop.  Although Hadoop is highly scalable, it is a challenging infrastructure to manage, as…

LINQ has many benefits over SQL, but at what cost?

Benchmark Results

Let’s get straight to the results!

Method | Median | StdDev | ------------------ |------------ |---------- | QueryLinq | 175.8261 us | 9.9202 us | QuerySql | 62.2791 us | 5.4908 us | QueryLinqCompiled | 57.9274 us | 3.1307 us |

Code is at github.com/ptupitsyn/IgniteNetBenchmarks.

This is a comparison of equivalent queries via SQL, LINQ and Compiled LINQ. Query is very simple (select Age from SqlPerson where (SqlPerson.Id < ?)), data set is very small (40 items, 20 returned): this exposes LINQ overhead better.

We can see right away that LINQ is a lot slower than raw SQL, but compiled LINQ is a bit faster. Note that results are in microseconds: real-world queries may take tens or even hundreds of milliseconds, so LINQ overhead will…

As 2017 kicks into high gear, I want to focus attention on the SAP Cloud Platform, formerly known as SAP HANA Cloud Platform, which was officially rebranded last month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Having HANA in the platform offering’s name posited a necessity to run the SAP HANA database service when adopting the SAP Cloud Platform which is not the case. Although SAP HANA can be leveraged when using the SAP Cloud Platform, it is by no means the only service that companies adopt when deploying this SAP PaaS offering. So to avoid any confusion going forward, SAP decided to remove the HANA name from the SAP Cloud Platform. The platform’s emphasis is as an enterprise cloud platform that covers for a wide range of use cases to help organizations navigate their digital…

As a marketer, I’ve often heard comments like “You sound like you’re in marketing” made with a disparaging undertone. The implication is that anything that comes out of a marketer’s consciousness— verbally, written or heard—must be about sales and promotions and can therefore be dismissed as lacking any depth or substance.  Luckily, I have the opportunity to set the record straight and create content that is compelling, educational, authentic, and relevant. And more than anything else, my goal is to create content that my audience would care to learn about.
Hence, with the support of my social team, we set out to create the SAP Cloud Platform C.A.R.E. video series. The goal of these interview-style videos is to introduce topics, customers, partners and demos that are cloud related, authentic in our discussions, relevant for the audience watching, and educational (…C.A.R.E.).

Last month, the Linux Foundation announced the fusion of its two flagship open networking projects. Open-O (launched a year ago at Mobile World Congress by China Mobile and Huawei) will join with open source ECOMP (Enhanced Control, Orchestration, Management and Policy, led by AT&T) to form the ONAP (Open Network Automation Platform) project. Here’s why ONAP is a game changer not just for NFV, but also for the next iteration of hyperscale cloud.…

The recent Apache Ignite 1.9 release provided an integration with Kubernetes that automates deployment, scalability, and management of an Apache Ignite cluster running under its supervision. The whole idea of the integration is to enable Apache Ignite nodes auto-discovery in Kubernetes so that they can interconnect with each other to form a distributed cluster.
