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.

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.

Different Types Of Payment Cards you need to know

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 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 …
