Cloud Integration-New Role in IT

ITaaS is the most recent entrant to the IT landscape; it is an efficient delivery method. With the meteoric and mesmerizing rise of service orientation principles, every single IT element is being viewed and visualized as a service that sets the tone for the service era

Integration as a service (IaaS): is a budding and distinctive capability of clouds that helps in fulfilling internal as well as external business integration requirements. Increasingly, business applications are deployed in clouds to reap the manifold business and technical benefits of using clouds.
  • On the other hand, innumerable mission-critical applications and data sources still remain locally stationed and sustained primarily due to the expressed security concerns associated with hosting them in clouds. The question here is how to create seamless data flow between hosted and on-premise applications so that they work together.

The IaaS overcomes these challenges by smartly utilizing the time-tested B2B integration technology as the value-added bridge between SaaS solutions and in-house business applications. The B2B systems are capable of driving this new on-demand integration model because they are traditionally used to automate business processes between manufacturers and their trading partners.

  • This means they provide application-to-application connectivity along with the functionality that is crucial for linking internal and external software securely. 
  • Unlike the conventional EAI solutions designed only for internal data sharing, B2B platforms have the ability to encrypt files for safe passage across the public network, manage large data volumes, transfer batch files, convert disparate file formats, and guarantee data delivery across multiple enterprises. 
  • The IaaS just imitates this established communication and collaboration model to create reliable and durable linkage for ensuring smooth data passage between traditional and cloud systems over the web infrastructure.

The use of hub-and-spoke (H&S) architecture further simplifies the implementation and avoids placing an excessive processing burden on the customer side.The hub is installed at the SaaS provider's cloud center to do the heavy lifting, such as reformatting of files.

  • A spoke unit at each user site typically acts as a basic data transfer utility. With these pieces in place, SaaS providers can offer integration services under the same subscription/ usage-based pricing model as their core offerings. As IT resources are becoming more distributed and decentralized every day, linking and leveraging them for multiple purposes need a multifaceted infrastructure.

Clouds, being web-based infrastructures, are the best fit for hosting scores of unified and utility-like platforms to take care of all sorts of brokering needs among connected ICT systems.

The best 5 differences of AWS EMR and Hadoop

With Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) you can analyze and process vast amounts of data. It does this by distributing the computational work across a cluster of virtual servers running in the Amazon cloud. The cluster is managed using an open-source framework called Hadoop.

Amazon EMR has made enhancements to Hadoop and other open-source applications to work seamlessly with AWS. For example, Hadoop clusters running on Amazon EMR use EC2 instances as virtual Linux servers for the master and slave nodes, Amazon S3 for bulk storage of input and output data, and CloudWatch to monitor cluster performance and raise alarms.

You can also move data into and out of DynamoDB using Amazon EMR and Hive. All of this is orchestrated by Amazon EMR control software that launches and manages the Hadoop cluster. This process is called an Amazon EMR cluster.

Hadoop uses a distributed processing architecture called MapReduce in which a task is mapped to a set of servers for proce…

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…

5 Things About AWS EC2 You Need to Focus!

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) - is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.
Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction.

The basic functions of EC2... 
It provides you with complete control of your computing resources and lets you run on Amazon’s proven computing environment.Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing you to quickly scale capacity, both up and down, as your computing requirements change.Amazon EC2 changes the economics of computing by allowing you to pay only for capacity that you actually use. Amazon EC2 provides developers the tools to build failure resilient applications and isolate themselves from common failure scenarios. 
Key Points for Interviews:
EC2 is the basic fundamental block around which the AWS are structured.EC2 provides remote ope…
