Disaster Recovery and Big Data

Big data applications are not usually considered mission-critical: while they support sales and marketing decisions, they do not significantly affect core operations such as customer accounts, orders, inventory, and shipping. Why, then, are major IT organizations moving quickly to incorporating big data in their disaster recovery plans?  Read more...

Another Look at Tuning Big Data Queries

Most large organizations have implemented one or more big data applications. As more data accumulates internal users and analysts execute more reports and forecasts, which leads to additional queries and analysis, and more reporting. The cycle continues: data growth leads to better analysis, which generates more reporting. Eventually the big data application swells with so much data and querying that performance suffers.   Read more...

Preparing Your Enterprise for Big Data

Big data applications are now fairly commonplace in large organizations. It is, however, difficult to simply ‘drop’ these applications into an existing IT infrastructure and expect to run smoothly. In addition to energy and cooling requirements for new hardware to support the new big data application, other IT areas need to prepare.  Read more...

Integrating Big Data into the Enterprise Data Warehouse

Big Data implementations are more than just lots of data. Of equal importance is the analytics software used to query the data. Analyzing business data using advanced analytics is common, especially in companies that already have an enterprise data warehouse. It is therefore only natural that your big data application must be integrated with the existing warehouse.  Read more...

Do We Still Need Database Design in the Era of Big Data?

Many big data application implementations seem to begin with an existing data warehouse, one or more new high-volume data streams, and some specialized hardware and software. The data storage issue is often accommodated by installing a proprietary hardware appliance that can store huge amounts of data while providing extremely fast data access. In these cases, do we really need to worry about database design?  Read more...

Big Data Basics - Introduction to HDFS

One of the core components of the Hadoop framework and responsible for the storage aspect is HDFS. Unlike the usual storage available on our computers, HDFS is a Distributed File System and parts of a single large file can be stored on different nodes across the cluster. Here are some of the key concepts related to HDFS.  Read more...
