Light a fire under Cassandra with Apache Ignite

Nikita Ivanov is co-founder and CTO of GridGain Systems. Apache Cassandra is a popular database for several reasons.

The open source, distributed, NoSQL database has no single point of failure, so it’s well suited for high-availability applications.
It supports multi-datacenter replication, allowing organizations to achieve greater resiliency by, for example, storing data across multiple Amazon Web Services availability zones.
It also offers massive and linear scalability, so any number of nodes can easily be added to any Cassandra cluster in any datacenter.

For these reasons, companies such as Netflix, eBay, Expedia, and several others have been using Cassandra for key parts of their businesses for many years.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Apache Eagle keeps an eye on big data usage

Apache Eagle, originally developed at eBay and then donated to the Apache Software Foundation, fills big data security niche that remains thinly populated, if not bare: It sniffs out possible security and performance issues with big data frameworks. To do this, Eagle uses other Apache open source components, such as Kafka, Spark, and Storm, to generate and analyze machine learning models from the behavioral data of big data clusters.[ Docker, Amazon, TensorFlow, Windows 10, and more: See InfoWorld's 2017 Technology of the Year Award winners. | Cut to the key news in technology trends and IT breakthroughs with the InfoWorld Daily newsletter, our summary of the top tech happenings. ]Looking in from the inside Data for Eagle can come from activity logs for various data source (HDFS, Hive, MapR FS, Cassandra, etc.) or from performance metrics harvested directly from frameworks like Spark.

The data can then be piped by the Kafka streaming framework into a real-time detection system that's built with Apache Storm, or into a model-training system built on Apache Spark.

The former's for generating alerts and reports based on existing policies; the latter is for creating machine learning models to drive new policies.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
