IBM - Open Cloud Architecture

Cloud computing is changing the way we think about technology, and it’s no passing fad. Consumers are using the cloud to store music. Startups are turning to cloud to get up and running without huge investments. Big businesses and governments are relying on clouds to make more data more accessible.

Cloud computing is changing how business and society run, and it's opening up huge avenues of innovation. We are looking at how developers are now combining systems of record with systems of engagement, and we see a new style of cloud-based application emerging. These are systems of interaction.
For these applications to be sustainable, cloud computing needs to be built on open source and standards. Wide adoption of open source software and open standards should be everyone's goal. It means customers won’t have to fear vendor lock-in, and organizations can participate in a growing market that welcomes a wide variety of cloud technology and service providers.
We've learned through our experience that open source and standards allow developers to share information more quickly and easily, and at lower costs. This leads to greater innovation. We are at an inflection point. We're focusing the industry on important standards for interoperability, and their open source reference implementations will:
  • Ensure that end users have a strong voice in establishing and adopting cloud computing paradigms
  • Reduce barriers of entry into cloud computing, such as development skills and freedom of choice
  • Increase the long-term viability of today’s cloud investments
  • Prevent unnecessary architectural complexity and fragmentation
Openstack is a software to control your cloud
OpenStack software controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, managed through a dashboard or via the OpenStack API. OpenStack works with popular enterprise and open source technologies making it ideal for heterogeneous infrastructure.
Hundreds of the world’s largest brands rely on OpenStack to run their businesses every day, reducing costs and helping them move faster. OpenStack has a strong ecosystem, and users seeking commercial support can choose from different OpenStack-powered products and services in the

Top 20 ultimate ETL Questions really good for interviews

How to print/display the first line of a file?  there are many ways to do this. However the easiest way to display the first line of a file is using the [head] command.  $> head -1 file. Txt no prize in guessing that if you specify [head -2] then it would print first 2 records of the file.  another way can be by using [sed] command. [sed] is a very powerful text editor which can be used for various text manipulation purposes like this.  $> sed '2,$ d' file. Txt how does the above command work?  The 'd' parameter basically tells [sed] to delete all the records from display from line 2 to last line of the file (last line is represented by $ symbol). Of course it does not actually delete those lines from the file, it just does not display those lines in standard output screen. So you only see the remaining line which is the 1st line.  how to print/display the last line of a file?  the easiest way is to use the [tail] command.  $> tail -1 file. Txt if you want to do it using…

The unique helpful SAN architecture simplified one

Storage Area Networks (SANs)

A SAN is connected behind the servers. SANs provide block-level access to shared data storage. Block level access refers to the specific blocks of data on a storage device as opposed to file level access. One file will contain several blocks. 

SANs provide high availability and robust business continuity for critical data environments. SANs are typically switched fabric architectures using Fibre Channel (FC) for connectivity. The term switched fabric refers to each storage unit being connected to each server via multiple SAN switches also called SAN directors which provide redundancy within the paths to the storage units. This provides additional paths for communications and eliminates one central switch as a single point of failure.Ethernet has many advantages similar to Fibre Channel for supporting SANs. Some of these include high speed, support of a switched fabric topology, widespread interoperability, and a large set of management tools. In a storage ne…

Four Tableau products a quick review and explanation

I want to share you what are the Products most popular.

Total four products. Read the details below.

Tableau desktop-(Business analytics anyone can use) - Tableau  Desktop  is  based  on  breakthrough technology  from  Stanford  University  that  lets  you drag & drop to analyze data. You can connect to  data in a few clicks, then visualize and create interactive dashboards with a few more.
