6 Advantages of Columnar Databases over Traditional RDBMS

In traditional RDBMS, when a data source is accessed by multi users at single time, then database will go into deadlock state.

One of the advantages of a columnar model is that if two or more users want to use a different subset of columns, they do not have to lock out each other.

This design is made easier because of a disk storage method known as RAID (redundant array of independent disks, originally redundant array of inexpensive disks), which combines multiple disk drives into a logical unit. Data is stored in several patterns called levels that have different amounts of redundancy. The idea of the redundancy is that when one drive fails, the other drives can take over. When a replacement disk drive in put in the array, the data is replicated from the other disks in the array and the system is restored.

The following are the various levels of RAID:

RAID 0 (block-level striping without parity or mirroring) has no (or zero) redundancy. It provides improved performance and additional storage but no fault tolerance. It is a starting point for discussion.

In RAID 1 (mirroring without parity or striping) data is written identically to two drives, thereby producing a mirrored set; the read request is serviced by either of the two drives containing the requested data, whichever one involves the least seek time plus rotational latency.

In RAID 10 (mirroring and striping) data is written in stripes across primary disks that have been mirrored to the secondary disks.

In RAID 2 (bit-level striping with dedicated Hamming-code parity) all disk spindle rotation is synchronized, and data is striped such that each sequential bit is on a different drive. Hamming-code parity is calculated across corresponding bits and stored on at least one parity drive. This theoretical RAID level is not used in practice.

In RAID 3 (byte-level striping with dedicated parity) all disk spindle rotation is synchronized, and data is striped so each sequential byte is on a different drive.

RAID 4 (block-level striping with dedicated parity) is equivalent to RAID 5 except that all parity data is stored on a single drive. In this arrangement, files may be distributed between multiple drives.

RAID 5, RAID 6, and other patterns exist; many of them are marketing terms more than technology. The goal is to provide fault tolerance of drive failures, up to n disk drive failures or removals from the array. This makes larger RAID arrays practical, especially for high-availability systems. While this is nice for database people, we get more benefit from parallelism for queries.

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.

Tableau desktop-(Business analytics anyone can use) - Tableau  Desktop  is  based  on  breakthrough technology  from  Stanford  University  that  lets  you drag & drop to analyze data. You can connect to  data in a few clicks, then visualize and create interactive dashboards with a few more.

We’ve done years of research to build a system that supports people’s natural  ability  to  think visually. Shift fluidly between views, following your natural train of thought. You’re not stuck in wizards or bogged down writing scripts. You just create beautiful, rich data visualizations.  It's so easy to use that any Excel user can learn it. Get more results for less effort. And it’s 10 –100x faster than existing solutions.

Different Types Of Payment Cards

The Credit Card (Shopping): The purpose o this card is to buy any item withing the limit prescribed by banks to cardholder. These cards can have both Magnetic stripe and Chip cards. 
Now a days all banks are issuing credit cards with CHIP and PIN. After entering the PIN by cardholder, then transaction starts for further processing.

The debit (ATM, Cash) card is a relatively new method of payment. It is different from a credit card because the debit cardholder pays with the money available in their bank account, which is debited immediately in real time. A debit card seems to be more dangerous compared to a credit card because the debit card is directly linked to the bank checking account and usually allows ATM cash withdrawals.

On the other hand, it is more protected by the required two-factor authentication (PIN number plus card itself). The real dangerous element of many branded debit cards is that they can be processed as credit cards, without entering the PIN.

The Gift card

The Sqoop in Hadoop story to process structural data

Why Sqoop you need while working on Hadoop-The Sqoop and its primary reason is to import data from structural data sources such as Oracle/DB2 into HDFS(also called Hadoop file system).
To our readers, I have collected a good video from Edureka which helps you to understand the functionality of Sqoop.

The comparison between Sqoop and Flume

The Sqoop the word came from SQL+Hadoop Sqoop word came from SQL+HADOOP=SQOOP. And Sqoop is a data transfer tool. The main use of Sqoop is to import and export the large amount of data from RDBMS to HDFS and vice versa. List of basic Sqoop commands Codegen- It helps to generate code to interact with database records.Create-hive-table- It helps to Import a table definition into a hiveEval- It helps to evaluateSQL statement and display the resultsExport-It helps to export an HDFS directory into a database tableHelp- It helps to list the available commandsImport- It helps to import a table from a database to HDFSImport-all-tables- It helps to import tables …
