Role of Networking in the age of Cloud Computing (Part 1 of 2)

Role of Networking in the age of Cloud Computing
#Role of Networking in the age of Cloud Computing:

Data Center (DC)-based services are emerging as relevant source of network capacity demand for service providers and telecom operators. Cloud computing services, Content Distribution Networks (CDNs), and, generally, th
e networked applications have a huge impact on the telecom operator infrastructure.

Cloud computing paradigm provides a new model for service delivery where computing resources can be provided on-demand across the network. This elasticity permits the sharing of resources among users, thus reducing costs and maximizing utilization, while posing a challenge towards an efficient cloud-aware network.

The computing resources can be provided on-demand depending on the user requests. Such resources can be allocated on distinct servers into a data center, or through data centers distributed in the network. Under this new model, the users access their assigned resources, as well as the applications and services using them, through telecom operator networks.

Tradition telecom networks

Traditional telecom networks have been built on the concept of totally managed services, with an end-to-end approach, where the telco operator is in charge, not only, of providing the necessary connectivity to the end user and the final service itself, but also of providing total control of the service provision, including tasks such as subscription management, billing, network operation and troubleshooting, quality of service guarantee, customer care, etc.

Such approach mandates a tight control of the service path, and a comprehensive understanding of the service and its implications. The telco operator offers those services to its customers, which merely consume them (even, in some cases, composing some of them) in a controlled manner, within the limits provided by the telco operator. These services can be seen as building blocks, which at the same time are supported by network building blocks, both at transport and control level, monolithically. The telco services are typically provided by centralized nodes located deep in the network.

These service nodes are under the solely control of the network operator. Such controlled environment tends to remain stable where the innovation in technology and services is gradual and modulated by the network operator.

However, during the last decades, the technology fundamentals of the computer networking have been influencing the telecom networks, mainly due to the hegemony of the Internet Protocol (IP), which has been emerged as the technology substrate for every kind of service, also for the traditional services offered by telco operators.

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 …
