Big Data: Top NoSQL Interview Questions (2 of 5)

Oracle+NoSQL+JOBS
1) What is most important character of NoSQL?
High Availability

2)Different types of NoSQL databases?
Key-Value stores
Column Stores
Graph Stores
Document Stores

3)What is oracle NoSQL database?
Oracle NoSQL Database is a distributed key-value database designed to provide highly reliable, scalable, and available data storage across a configurable set of systems.

4)What is the DB engine being used in Oracle NoSQL database?
Oracle NoSQL Database uses Oracle Berkeley DB Java Edition as the underlying data storage engine.

5)What is oracle NoSQL database?
Oracle NoSQL Database is a shared-nothing system designed to run and scale on commodity hardware. Key-value pairs are hash partitioned across server groups known as shards. At any point in time, a single key-value pair is always associated with a unique shard in the system.

6) What are unique features of Oracle NoSQL?
Oracle NoSQL Database leverages the high availability features in Berkeley DB in order to provide resiliency, fault tolerance, and read scalability.

7)What is the concept of shared nothing in Oracle NoSQL database?
A shared-nothing system partitions the data into disjoint subsets (called shards), each shard managed by a node (along with replicas for providing high availability).

8) How oracle NoSQL acheives high availablity?
Availability is achieved by adding redundancy to the system. In NoSQL systems, redundancy is commonly achieved by maintaining multiple copies of the data on multiple nodes. Each shard comprises two or more nodes (called replicas) that have identical copies of the data.

9) What is ACID in Oracle NoSQL?
Atomicity, consistency, isolation, and durability (ACID) are the key characteristics provided by transactions. Oracle NoSQL Database leverages the transaction capabilities of the underlying Berkeley DB storage engine.

10)How data will be modeled in No SQL Database?
Oracle NoSQL Database provides a key-value paradigm to the application developer. Every entity (record) is a set of key-value pairs. A key has multiple components, specified as an ordered list. The major key identifies the entity and consists of the leading components of the key. The subsequent components are called minor keys.
This organization is similar to a directory path specification in a file system (for example, /Major/minor1/minor2/). The "value" part of the key-value pair is simply an uninterpreted string of bytes of arbitrary length.

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.

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…
