Overview Of Cloud Standards

Cloud computing slowly becoming realty. So it has to address many concerns such as security, interoperability, portability and governance at the earliest opportunity.This can be accelerated by compliance to guidelines and standards defined in consensus by the cloud providers. Without addressing these concerns, users would be wary to tread this path in spite of its powerful economic model for business computing.

Interoperability/integration - interoperability enables products/software components to work with or integrate with each other seamlessly, in order to achieve a desired result. Thus, it provides flexibility and choice to use multiple products to achieve our need. This is enabled by either integrating through standard interfaces or by means of a broker that converts one product interface to another.

Security - security involves the protection of information assets through various policies, procedures and technologies, which need to adhere to standards and best practices in order to achieve the desired level of security.

    For example, Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security standards from PCI SSC define ways to secure credit card data to avoid fraud. This is applicable to all organisations that hold, process or pass credit cardholder information.

Portability - A software is said to be portable when the cost of porting the same from an existing platform for which it was originally developed, to a new platform, is less than the cost of re-writing it for the new platform. Software with good portability thus avoids vendor lock-in.

      This is typically achieved by adhering to standard interfaces defined between the software              component and vendor platforms. For example, Java programs are set to be portable across operating systems (OS) that adhere to standard interfaces defined between the Java runtime environment and the OS.

Governance - Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) - governance focuses on ensuring that the enterprise adheres to defined policies and processes. Risk management puts in controls to manage and mitigate risks as defined by the enterprise.

      Compliance ensures that the enterprise adheres to various legal/legislative as well as internal policies. Standards have been defined for IT systems to adhere to certain industry as well as legal standards such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) [4], Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), etc.

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.

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.
