Confidential computing is an emerging paradigm in today’s data-centric era that helps maintain privacy and confidentiality regardless of where data is processed. Intel is working to make it possible for customers to maintain control of their data, even when it’s in the cloud. That is why I’m very excited that Microsoft has announced the general ...continue reading Intel Enables Azure Confidential Computing

Why? Our blog already contains numerous articles about running Hazelcast in containers, but they mainly focus on orchestrated platforms (Kubernetes, ECS, GCP, …). According to a 2018 Docker adoption report, half of the deployments did run in non-orchestrated environments 2 years ago. I didn’t find a similar report from 2020, but I expect the proportion […]

As COVID-19 has disrupted life as we know it, I have been inspired by the stories of organizations around the world using AWS in very important ways to help combat the virus and its impact. Whether it is supporting the medical relief effort, advancing scientific research, spinning up remote learning programs, or standing-up remote working platforms, we have seen how providing access to scalable, dependable, and highly secure computing power is vital to keep organizations moving forward. This is why, today, we are announcing the AWS Africa (Cape Town) Region is now open.

MemSQL is a state of the art, distributed, scale-out, transaction processing and query execution engine. In the same system, we can do kickass large-scale analytical queries and ultra-low-latency key-value workloads. With the release of MemSQL 7.0 at the end of 2019, our new replication protocol, which is something I am personally very proud of, means we only lose data if there has been catastrophic damage to the cluster. I don’t think there’s any other system in the world that can do what we can do, and you can check our TPC-H, TPC-DS and TPC-C benchmark results to prove it.  Yet, …

We are globally faced with a unique set of circumstances at the moment. This virus is keeping us physically apart, and related business results are impacting all of us. But we can still come together virtually to build a sense of hope and global community. Building Community & Camaraderie  MemSQL is working to do that by reaching out to its employees and the community to put humans – and humanity – back into business.  In an effort to create human connectedness in a time of physical distancing, we have created the ‘Virtual Hug’ movement to instill positivity for all of …

“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.

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…
