Why Redis Needs Enterprise Developers

Oct 6, 2015 |

It sounds strange now, but it was at least a couple of years from the moment I released the first open source version of Redis, to the moment I started to hear “enterprise” in the context of Redis. I first realized how important Redis had become in the context of big companies when I was in Cologne at the NoSQL Matters conference in 2012. Within hours I was approached by a number of important companies, including ones operating in the Read more…

Cutting: Spark an ‘All-Around Win’ for Hadoop

Sep 24, 2015 |

Hadoop co-creator Doug Cutting said today that Apache Spark is “very clever” and is “pretty much an all-around win” for Hadoop, adding that it will enable developers to build better and faster data-oriented applications than MapReduce ever could. Cutting talked at length about Spark during today’s Cloudera webinar, titled “Uniting Spark and Hadoop: The One Platform Initiative.” The Hadoop distributor, which employs Cutting as its chief architect, has ramped up the pro-Spark messaging since the launch of the One Platform Read more…

The Data of Things: How Edge Analytics and IoT Go Hand In Hand

Sep 22, 2015 |

In the next five years, 15 to 40 billion additional connected devices are expected to hit the market. By some estimates, it will be a 285 percent increase from the number of connected devices currently available. With a magnified number of connected devices anticipated, a flood of data deriving from “things,” whether a smart video camera or a smart traffic light, will likely raise a new set of challenges for enterprises. Those that understand that IoT data’s real value will Read more…

What’s Driving the Rise of Real-Time Analytics

Sep 15, 2015 |

Hadoop gave us a taste of the types of insights big data analytics can deliver, and provided a competitive advantage to early adopters. But as data volumes grow, as the time-to-insight window shrinks, and as technology continues to improve, companies who wish to remain competitive will have no choice but to adopt real-time analytics. We’re on the cusp of a period of rapid growth in real-time analytics, according to industry experts.  While real-time analytic systems and complex event processing (CEP) Read more…

Data ‘Assimilation’ Seen as Weak Link in U.S. Weather Forecasts

Oct 5, 2015 |

Second-guessing over the relative accuracy of the U.S. weather forecasting model compared to its European counterparts resumed last week as early predictions that Hurricane Joaquin would strike the U.S. east coast proved inaccurate. With the exception of the sodden residents of some southeastern coastal states, others were mostly spared after the hurricane drifted out into the Atlantic Ocean after pounding the Bahamas. Early models from the U.S. National Weather Service had the Category 4 storm hitting the east coast anywhere Read more…

A Big Data Superhighway?

Sep 25, 2015 |

Internet pioneer Larry Smarr once had a vision of bringing connected computers out of academia and into the consumer world. Today, he envisions a second virtual highway, one capable of delivering on the promise of big data by leveraging fiber optic networks to transmit data at speeds of 10 gigabits to 100 gigabits per second. The idea is similar to NSFnet, which became the backbone of the Internet in the 1980s. Like NSFnet, Smarr hopes this new network – the Pacific Research Platform – Read more…
