Ecosystem business models have the potential to generate and deliver much greater value than traditional business models. It’s not a question of whether companies will make the shift anymore. The question now is about the role they will play.
We’ve written about building platforms and how platform companies are more likely to succeed. However, there are many companies in many industries in the world, and not all will be able or willing to build a platform of their own. Nor will they need to. They can still succeed, provided they have the right strategy, choosing their own ecosystem niche, as a leader or a participant.
There are many ways to be an ecosystem leader. In this article we will point out three main categories that stand to profit from ecosystem business models.

  1. The Aggregator.

The aggregators connect supply and demand. They do this through their own transactional marketplaces. For this strategy to work, the volume of users is…

Microsoft is pleased to announce availability of SQL Server 2017 Release Candidate 2 (RC2), which is now available for download.
The release candidate represents an important milestone for SQL Server.  Development of the new version of SQL Server along most dimensions needed to bring the industry-leading performance and security of SQL Server to Windows, Linux, and Docker containers is complete.  We are continuing to work on performance and stress testing of SQL Server 2017 to get it ready for your most demanding Tier 1 workloads, as well as some final bug fixes.
We invite you to test out RC2 today, and to let us know how it’s working for you.  If you have questions, you can join the discussion of SQL Server 2017 at MSDN. If you run into an issue or would like to make a suggestion, you can let us know through…

VoltDB V7.5 is now available, with a fine set of features sure to excite our customers, including:

  • Kafka updates (most requested by customers)
    1. Kafka 0.10.2 an upgrade from our previous Kafka 0.8 support. King was interested in doing this upgrade. For now, we support both versions.
    2. SSL in Kafka. The Kafka 0.10 upgrade enabled us to get SSL support – which enhances our security story even more
    3. Kafka messages going to two or more tables
  • SQL features and improvements
    1. INSERT INTO..SELECT now takes way less temp memory, enabling it to be used on very large partitioned tables (customers have wanted this for a while)
    2. More flexible placement of COUNT(*) in views
    3. Unary minus
    4. SQL functions to calculate RADIANS() and DEGREES()
  • New @Statistics QUEUE selector, to help customers and support diagnose performance issues.
  • Bug fixes and a bunch more features.

When building applications, developers aim for them to be both consistent in performance and also highly available under every imaginable scenario.

Doing so has always been a challenge because there’s always been a tradeoff between data consistency and high availability

Until now.

1. One Thread To Rule Them All

Redis has been, from its inception, single threaded – and will remain so at least in 4.0. This is a reality that Redis apps, and more recently Redis Modules such as RediSearch , have to work with.
While keeping things single-threaded makes Redis simple and fast, the downside is that long running commands block the entire server for the duration of query execution. Most Redis commands are fast so that is not a problem, but commands like ZUNIONSTORE, LRANGE, SINTER and of course, the infamous KEYS, can block Redis for seconds or minutes, depending on the size of data they are handling.

2. RediSearch and the Single Thread Issue

RediSearch is a new search engine…
