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

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.

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…
