5 Different Bigdata Storage Patterns

Data is now more than just plain text, it can exist in various persistence-storage mechanisms, with Hadoop distributed file system (HDFS) being one of them. The way data is ingested or the sources from which data is ingested affects the way data is stored. On the other hand, how the data is pushed further into the downstream systems or accessed by the data access layer decides how the data is to be stored.

The need to store huge volumes of data has forced databases to follow new rules of data relationships and integrity that are different from those of relational database management systems (RDBMS). RDBMS follow the ACID rules of atomicity, consistency, isolation and durability. These rules make the database reliable to any user of the database. However, searching huge volumes of big data and retrieving data from them would take large amounts of time if all the ACID rules were enforced.

A typical scenario is when we search for a certain topic using Google. The search returns innumerable pages of data; however, only one page is visible or basically available (BA). The rest of the data is in a soft state (S) and is still being assembled by Google, though the user is not aware of it. By the time the user looks at the data on the first page, the rest of the data becomes eventually consistent (E). This phenomenon—basically available soft state and eventually consistent—is the rule followed by the big data databases, which are generally NoSQL databases following BASE properties.

Database theory suggests that any distributed NoSQL big database can satisfy only two properties predominantly and will have to relax standards on the third. The three properties are consistency, availability, and partition tolerance (CAP). This is the CAP theorem.

  • Polyglot pattern: Multiple types of storage mechanisms—like RDBMS, file storage, CMS, OODBMS, NoSQL and HDFS—co-exist in an enterprise to solve the big data problem.
  • The aforementioned paradigms of ACID, BASE, and CAP give rise to new big data storage patterns like below:
  • Façade pattern: HDFS serves as the intermittent Façade for the traditional DW systems.
  • Lean pattern: HBase is indexed using only one column-family and only one column and unique row-key.
  • NoSQL pattern: Traditional RDBMS systems are replaced by NoSQL alternatives to facilitate faster access and querying of big data.

Three popular RPA tools functional differences

Robotic process automation is growing area and many IT developers across the board started up-skill in this popular area. I have written this post for the benefit of Software developers who are interested in RPA also called Robotic Process Automation.

In my previous post, I have described that total 12 tools are available in the market. Out of those 3 tools are most popular. Those are Automation anywhere, BluePrism and Uipath. Many programmers asked what are the differences between these tools. I have given differences of all these three RPA tools.

BluePrismBlue Prism has taken a simple concept, replicating user activity on the desktop, and made it enterprise strength. The technology is scalable, secure, resilient, and flexible and is supported by a comprehensive methodology, operational framework and provided as packaged software.The technology is developed and deployed within a “corridor of IT governance” and has sophisticated error handling and process modelling capabilities to ensu…

HBASE hadoop database really new features to handle growing data volumes

Hbase is Java implementation of Google's Big table. The data stored in HABSE is as shown below. Which is actually two parts.
Row Key : 00001 Column  : (Column Qualifier:Version:Value)Features or key points of HBASE...
HBase data stores consist of one or more tables, which are indexed by row keys.Data is stored in rows with columns, and rows can have multiple versions.By default, data versioning for rows is implemented with time stamps.Columns are grouped into column families, which must be defined up front during table creation. Column families are stored together on disk, which is why HBase is referred to as a column-oriented data storeIn addition...
HBASE is distributed data store,which leverages a network attached cluster of low-cost commodity servers to store and persist data.HBASE architecture is littel trick to know.

Region Servers...
RegionServers are the software processes (often called daemons) you activate to store and retrieve data in HBase.
