Some of the Interesting links i have read in the last couple of weeks around Data, In-Memory Databases, Pipeline Development and Analytics.
In Search of Database Nirvana
An excellent post providing an in-depth look at the possibilities and the challenges for companies that long for a single query engine to rule them all.
Aerospike Vs Cassandra Comparison
Comparison on Aerospike with Apache Cassandra. Cassandra is a columnar NoSQL database that is great for ingesting and analyzing hundreds of terabytes of data stored on rotational disks. Aerospike is an in-memory, NoSQL database, a key-value store that can run purely in RAM and is also optimized for storing data in Flash (SSDs).
An overview of Apache Streaming Technologies
A very good comparison comparing technologies around simple event processors, stream processors, and complex event processors.
Flow based Programming
Flow-Based Programming defines applications using the metaphor of a “data factory”. It views an application not as a single, sequential process, which starts at a point in time, and then does one thing at a time until it is finished, but as a network of asynchronous processes communicating by means of streams of structured data chunks, called “information packets” (IPs).
