15 Awesome Features Should Present in Big Data System

Really good post. I have given useful points on the features of big data system. If there are no right features, you will miss the benefits that you get from big data.

What does traditional BI tools....

Read next step...

Traditional tools quickly can become overwhelmed by the large volume of big data. Latency—the time it takes to access the data—is as an important a consideration as volume.

A little difference is there...

Suppose you might need to run an ad hoc query against the large data set or a predefined report.

A large data storage system is not a data warehouse, however, and it may not respond to queries in a few seconds. It is, rather, the organization-wide repository that stores all of its data and is the system that feeds into the data warehouses for management reporting.

Big data needs to be considered in terms of how the data will be manipulated. The size of the data set will impact data capture, movement, storage, processing, presentation, analytics, reporting, and latency.

Key features of Big data system
  1. A method of collecting and categorizing data
  2. A method of moving data into the system safely and without data loss
  3. A storage system that is distributed across many servers
  4. Is scalable to thousands of servers
  5. Will offer data redundancy and backup
  6. Will offer redundancy in case of hardware failure
  7. Will be cost-effective
  8. A rich tool set and community support
  9. A method of distributed system configuration
  10. Parallel data processing
  11. System-monitoring tools
  12. Reporting tools: ETL-like tools (preferably with a graphic interface) that can be used to build tasks that process the data and monitor their progress
  13. Scheduling tools to determine when tasks will run and show task status
  14. The ability to monitor data trends in real time
  15. Local processing where the data is stored to reduce network bandwidth usage

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.
