Object Storage:

Object storage provides the ability to store, well, objects — which are essentially collections of digital bits. Those bits may represent a digital photo, an MRI scan, a structured document such as an XML file — or the video of your cousin's embarrassing attempt to ride a skateboard down the steps at the public library (the one you premiered at his wedding).

Object storage offers the reliable (and highly scalable) storage of collections of bits, but imposes no structure on the bits.

The structure is chosen by the user, who needs to know, for example, whether an object is a photo (which can be edited), or an MRI scan (which requires a special application for viewing it). The user has to know both the format as well as the manipulation methods of the object. The object storage service simply provides reliable storage of the bits.

Difference between Object storage and File storage

Object storage differs from file storage, which you may be more familiar with from using a PC. File storage offers update functionality, and object storage does not. For example, suppose you are storing logging output from a program.

The program constantly adds new logging entries as events occur; creating a new object each time an additional log record is created would be incredibly inconvenient. By contrast, using file storage allows you to continuously update the file by appending new information to it — in other words, you update the file as the program creates new log records.

Object storage offers no such update ability. You can insert or retrieve an object, but you can't change it. Instead, you update the object in the local application and then insert the object into the object store. To let the new version retain the same name as the old version, delete the original object before inserting the new object with the same name. The difference may seem minor, but it requires different approaches to managing stored objects.

Topologies in Apache Storm the concept you need to know

There are two main reasons why Apache Storm is so popular. The number one is it can connect to many sources. The number two is scalable. The other advantage is fault tolerant. That means, guaranteed data processing.
The map-reduce jobs process the data analytics in Hadoop. The topology in Storm is the real data processor. The co-ordination between Nimbus and Supervisor carried by Zookeeper What are topologiesThe jobs in Hadoop are similar to topology. The jobs run as per schedule defined.In Storm, the topology runs forever.A topology consists of many worker processes spread across many machines. A topology is a pre-defined design to get end product using your data.A topology comprises of 2 parts. These are Spout and bolts.The Spout is a funnel for topology Two nodes in StormMaster Node: similar to Hadoop job tracker. It runs on a daemon called Nimbus.Worker Node: It runs on a daemon called Supervisor. The Supervisor listens to the work assigned to each machine.Master NodeNimbus is re…

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…
