Top key points about Matlab Software Package (1 of 2)

Mainframe Vs Cloud computing
[Mainframe Vs Cloud Computing]
Matlab is probably the world's most successful commercial numerical analysis software package, and its name is derived from the term "matrix laboratory." It provides an interactive development tool for scientific and engineering problems and more generally for those areas where significant numeric computations have to be performed.

The package can be used to evaluate single statements directly or a list of statements called a script can be prepared. Once named and saved, a script can be executed as an entity. The package was originally based on software produced by the LINPACK and EISPACK projects but currently includes LAPACK and BLAS libraries which represent the current "state-of-the-art" numerical software for matrix computations. Matlab provides the user with

  • Easy manipulation of matrix structures
  • A vast number of powerful built-in routines that are constantly growing and developing
  • Powerful two- and three-dimensional graphing facilities
  • A scripting system that allows users to develop and modify the software for their own needs
  • Collections of functions, called toolboxes, that may be added to the facilities of the core Matlab. These are designed for specific applications, for example, neural networks, optimization, digital signal processing, and higher-order spectral analysis.
It is not difficult to use Matlab, although to use it with maximum efficiency for complex tasks requires experience. Generally Matlab works with rectangular or square arrays of data (matrices), the elements of which may be real or complex. A scalar quantity is thus a matrix containing a single element. This is an elegant and powerful notion but it can present the user with an initial conceptual difficulty. A user schooled in such languages as C++ or Python is familiar with a pseudo-statement of the form A = B + C and can immediately interpret it as an instruction that A is assigned the sum of values of the numbers stored in B and C.

In Matlab the variables B and C may represent arrays so that each element of the array A will become the sum of the values of corresponding elements of B and C.

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.


What does Hadoop do...

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…
