June 4, 2011 A major driver of Hadoop adoption is the “big bit bucket” use case. Users take a whole lot of data, often machine-generated data in logs of different kinds, and dump it into one place, managed by Hadoop, at open-source pricing. Hadoop hardware doesn’t need to be that costly either. And once you get that data into Hadoop, there are a whole lot of things you can do with it . Of course, there are various outfits who’d like to sell you not-so-cheap bit buckets.
June 4, 2011 After suggesting that there’s little point to Hadoop appliances , it occurred to me to look into what kinds of hardware actually are used with Hadoop. So far as I can tell: Hadoop nodes today tend to run on fairly standard boxes. Hadoop nodes in the past have tended to run on boxes that were light with respect to RAM. The number of spindles per core on Hadoop node boxes is going up even as disks get bigger.
If you’re writing a serious application, on the web or otherwise, you’ve got to have good logging. In the context of application development, reading logs is my personal favorite method for tracking bugs and rooting them out. A service like Loggly is perfect for programmers like me. It provides an easy to use web interface with searching capabilities that allows you to see what your application is logging at any time that you’d like to check in. Debugging with Loggly is nice, but it’s just the tip of the iceberg, thanks in part to its Loggly API .
The most audacious start-up pitches are those that propose changing people's communications habits. No matter how clever a company's technology or gorgeous an app's interface, getting users to adopt new modalities of communication is perhaps the hardest job in tech. It's a social challenge as much as a technological one, which means that if you get it right, your technology spreads from person to person--virally, as the overused term calls it.

eXtremeDB is a high performance, low-latency, ACID -compliant embedded database management system using an in-memory database system (IMDS) architecture and designed to be linked into C / C++ based programs. It works on Windows , Linux , and other real-time and embedded operating systems. Building on this core IMDS, there are several editions supporting high availability , database clustering, hybrid (in-memory and disk-based) data storage, columnar layout of time series data (such as financial market data) and other specialized abilities.
