Today, Redis applications can take advantage of a few types of replication –

  • LAN Based Replication: Tuned for LAN characteristics – Low latency and high bandwidth networks with only few retransmissions.
  • WAN Based Replication: Tuned for WAN characteristics – High latency and low bandwidth networks with high network “noise” ratio.

In the upcoming version of Redis Enterprise 5.0, we are delivering a new flexible, multi master replication technology built for WAN. The new capability allows active-active geo-distributed Redis deployments using the magic of  CRDTs (conflict free replicated data types). CRDTs simplify development of active-active systems and automatically resolve conflicting writes. Combined with Redis datatypes, CRDTs provide a mechanism that can easily help you develop active-active geo-distributed systems that can intelligently handle conflicting writes.
If you’d like to know more about Redis CRDTs and visit “…

Big Data marketing versus reality

When reading current publications, the IT world seems to have moved to Big Data. Forget about databases, with Big Data tools you can do everything, in no-time and on large volumes in addition. For every problem there is a Big Data tool: Hadoop, Spark, Hive, HBase, Kafka,…The reality is slightly different. This post should explain why Big Data technology does complement databases – OLTP and OLAP alike. And that Big Data use-cases are orthogonal to Business Intelligence questions. In the next post a future-proof architecture is presented, meeting the business needs by combining various technologies in a way to get all advantages and none of the disadvantages…

Today marks the 10 year anniversary of Amazon's Dynamo whitepaper, a milestone that made me reflect on how much innovation has occurred in the area of databases over the last decade and a good reminder on why taking a customer obsessed approach to solving hard problems can have lasting impact beyond your original expectations.

It all started in 2004 when Amazon was running Oracle's enterprise edition with clustering and replication. We had an advanced team of database administrators and access to top experts within Oracle. We were pushing the limits of what was a leading commercial database at the time and were unable to sustain the availability, scalability and performance needs that our growing Amazon business demanded.

Our straining database infrastructure on Oracle led us to evaluate if we could develop a purpose-built database that would support our business needs for the…

SAP HANA provides a single in-memory data platform that supports both transactions and analytics on diverse data, a key requirement for applications supporting a modern, real-time digital business. In today’s digital economy, businesses cannot take action on stale insights, thus a true in-memory data platform should support real-time processing for transactions and analytics for all of a company’s data. This is a key differentiator of the SAP HANA platform against other traditional database vendors.
So what really makes SAP HANA different?
Run Simple with SAP HANA
In-Memory First
SAP achieved a true transaction and analytical (i.e. translytical) platform by designing SAP HANA from the ground up with a new data processing architecture in mind.  This architecture greatly simplifies applications built on this platform removing many of the legacy overhead required to optimize applications on traditional disk-based database solutions.

In our previous two posts on In-Memory Expressions (IM expressions) we discussed the two types of IM expressions, user-defined In-Memory virtual columns and automatically detected In-Memory expressions. Now let's visit some of the details of IM expressions.

Probably the first thing to note is that since IM expressions are stored in the IM column store, their use is going to require more memory to store the IM expressions. We can see this when we populate IM expressions. In Part 1 of our series, we populated a user-defined IM virtual column for an expression in the LINEORDER table. Let's take a look at the space this required. Prior to creating the virtual column, the IM column store had these…

In the previous blog post ‘Swagger Specification and Code Generation one-o-one’, we learned about Swagger specification and its power to speed up web application development by code generator tool swagger-codegen.
In this article, we will explore second approach of development using Swagger i.e. Bottom up approach where in services (REST Controllers) are first created and then Swagger core is used to generate definitions automatically.
To understand Swagger configuration better, let’s take an example of Spring REST application which facilitates user to book doctor’s appointment.
Steps to configure
We will use the Springfox implementation of the Swagger specification.
1.  Adding maven dependency in pom.xml
