Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Related Posts VMware’s acquisition of Zimbra from Yahoo points to a new form of partnership in the tech word. It’s one that could define the big winners in the battle for a major piece of the enterprise market.The acquisition shows how VMware is seeking to do more than provide virtualization technology. By packaging Zimbra’s popular, open-source collaboration software, VMware can provide a more enhanced service, one that combines virtualization technology with email and calendar applications.It rings similar to Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard’s alliance announced today that will package Microsoft technology on HP servers.These new alliances point to the undeniable trend that the enterprise is moving full-throttle into cloud computing and virtualization.It could not be more exemplified than in the news from Gartner, which predicts that by 2012, 20% of businesses will not own any IT assets at all, relying entirely on cloud computing services. The shift will cause a major change in how an IT group is managed, what hardware is purchased and the type of staff a company will require to manage its cloud environment.With virtualization, the enterprise can be more efficient in how it doles out IT resources. For example, an IT manager can define with much greater precision what software is used in the enterprise. Server loads can be reduced as one server can be partitioned into multiple virtual ones.By itself, VMWare provides a robust service, and Zimbra has an established market position in the Linux and Mac OS communities. With the acquisition, VMWare can provide customers an alternative to Microsoft Exchange. For Microsoft’s part, the partnership with HP means that Microsoft Office can be packaged with Windows Azure, the cloud service offering from Microsoft. That can provide a reason for enterprise customers to stay with Microsoft and its ever-popular productivity software.VMWare and Microsoft are becoming major competitors. With such a huge market at stake, we expect that more services will be packaged into cloud computing and virtualization environments. alex williams IT + Project Management: A Love Affair 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Tags:#enterprise#news Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…
Big Data may be the poster child for NoSQL databases and date warehouses, but one industry veteran isn’t giving up on SQL databases for Big Data just yet. As most IT watchers know, Big Data is perceived as so large that it’s difficult to process using relational databases and software techniques. Of course, the relational model and SQL dominate today’s database landscape. But on the other side there are databases built without relations, made for higher scalability. We asked the expert in the database area, Monty Widenius, about the current and future state of SQL, NoSQL and Big Data. As the author of the original version of the open-source MySQL database, and one of the founders of the community-developed branch of the MySQL database, MariaDB, his take on Big Data bucks the conventional wisdom that large-scale data must abandon SQL databases.Monty WideniusWould you please tell us a little about the history of NoSQL and Big Data? What are the main reasons that this has become such a topic of interest?The whole thing with the “new NoSQL movement” started with a blog post from a Twitter employee that said MySQL was not good enough and they needed “something better,” like Cassandra.The main reason Twitter had problems with MySQL back then, was that they were using it incorrectly. The strange thing was that the solution they suggested for solving their problems could be done just as easily in MySQL as in Cassandra.I can’t find the original article, but I did find a follow up a bit later where it was said MySQL would be dropped for Cassandra.The current state is that now, three years later, Twitter is still using MySQL as their main storage for tweets. Cassandra was, in the end, not able to replace MySQL.The main reason NoSQL became popular is that, in contrast to SQL, you can start using it without having to design anything. This makes it easier to start with NoSQL, but you pay for this later when you find that you don’t have control of your data (if you are not very careful).So, the main benefits (at least before MariaDB) of most NoSQL solutions are:Fast access to data (as long as you can keep everything in memory)Fast replication/data spread over many nodes.Flexible schema (you can add new columns instantly).What problems can be solved (or do people think they can solve) with the help of Big Data?More performance and more flexible schemas are the two biggest drivers of NoSQL.What do you personally think about the future of Big Data? Your predictions?I think that most of the people who are looking for NoSQL are doing it mostly because it’s still ‘hype’. Most companies don’t have massive amounts of data, like Facebook and Google, and they will not be able to afford to have experts to tune and constantly develop the database.SQL is not going away. NoSQL can’t replace it. Almost everyone will need relations (i.e., joins) to utilize their data.Still, there are places where NoSQL makes sense. I think, in the future, you will see more combined SQL and NoSQL usage.This is why we are extending MariaDB to be able to access NoSQL databases like Cassandra and LevelDB.Why do people still use NoSQL? What are the main reasons?Because it’s easier to get started with a NoSQL database. You don’t have to learn SQL and define your database schema before you start using it. A few are using it because they believe it can scale better than SQL.Can SQL outperform NoSQL? What are some unique advantages that make SQL better than NoSQL?As soon as data can’t fit into memory, SQL generally outperforms NoSQL.The same goes for things that NoSQL can’t do. Most NoSQL solutions are optimized for single key access. For anything else, you have to write a program and it’s very hard to beat a SQL optimizer for complex things, especially things that are automatically generated based on user requests (required for most web sites).SQL can also beat NoSQL on most single machines. In a cluster, where everything is in memory, NoSQL usually outperforms SQL for key lookups.What do you think about this Cloudera announcement?The problem with Hadoop is that there is no known business model around it that ensures that the investors will get back 10X money that they expect. Because of that, I have a hard time understanding how Cloudera can survive in the long run.It’s not enough to have a good product. You also have to be able to make money with it.Who are the primary proponents of Big Data and NoSQL?All the NoSQL vendors of course. 😉If this is all just hype, why are they talking about it?It’s not just hype for everyone. There are many big companies and projects that can benefit from Big Data.However, my point is that most don’t need and should not use NoSQL, because it will become more expensive in the long run when you finally discover that NoSQL can’t solve all your business needs.Finally, how does MariaDB fit into all of this?One of the goals of MariaDB is to be a bridge between NoSQL and SQL. That’s why we have added support first for Cassandra and are now working on adding support for LevelDB.We also recognize some of the needs that NoSQL is trying to solve, which is why we added dynamic columns (which makes your SQL schemas as flexible as most NoSQL schemas) and much faster replication. We are working in MariaDB 10.0 to make the replication even faster, more fault tolerant and flexible. We are also working closely with Galera to provide a multi-master solution of MariaDB.All of this is to better adapt to a changing world and satisfy the needs people have – or think they have;)Please tell us about the new MariaDB foundation! What does this mean for developers worldwide?The MariaDB foundation was created to ensure that it’s not anymore just one person or one company that is driving MariaDB/MySQL development. It’s only by having a set of independent companies working together with the common goal of keeping MariaDB as an actively developed open source project that MariaDB and the MySQL ecosystem will truly be free and future proof.What the MariaDB foundation is doing in practice, is ensuring that the MariaDB project is actively developed as an open source project. The foundation is hiring developers to do all the builds, QA, merges, reviews of patches, etc, that is needed for a project to go forward.Lead image courtesy of Shutterstock, Widenius photo courtesy of Jelastic.

Pune: Ambedkarite parties have expressed concern over the allegedly tardy progress of the two-member commission set up by the State government to probe the Bhima-Koregaon clash that occurred on January 1. The outfits, including the RPI (A), said the statements of only a handful of people were recorded during the conclusion of the first phase of the hearings in Pune, which lasted four days from October 3 to October 6.They have demanded that the commission consisting of Justice Jai Narayan Patel, former Chief Justice of the Calcutta High Court, and State chief secretary Sumit Mullick, submit their report by the end of December.On Wednesday, freelance journalist and researcher Chandrakant Patil deposed before the commission and submitted documents concerning the historical aspects leading to, and the vague nature of, the outcome of the 1818 battle between a regiment of the East India Company and the forces of the Peshwa.Mr. Patil said caste or religion had played no part in the events leading up to the engagement. In his affidavit, Mr. Patil said the battle was the result of a sequence of events arising from the assassination of a senior court member of the rulers of Baroda (Vadodara) in 1815 by a trusted lieutenant of the Peshwas. The British saw a chance to supplant the Peshwas.“There is no evidence to suggest that the Mahars had approached the British with an offer to help them against the Peshwas as they had been insulted by the latter or that they sought freedom from any sort of caste discrimination,” Mr. Patil said.Objecting to Mr. Patil’s claims, RPI (A) leader Siddharth Dhende said time is being wasted on the submission of a self-styled researcher whose deposition is irrelevant to the immediate question of the riots.“While I don’t wish to point fingers, the commission ideally ought to have recorded the statements of those directly affected by the clashes in the first phase of the hearings. Why is so much precious time being wasted on the testimony of someone like Mr. Patil? The materials that he has submitted to support his contention are already present in the public domain,” Dr. Dhende told The Hindu. The objective behind the judicial commission, Dr. Dhende said, is to probe who instigated the January 1 clash. “If only four or five persons have been examined by the commission so far, then the hearings could well drag on for another six months. By that time, the elections will be round the corner and the issue will be hanging fire,” Dr. Dhende, who was a member of an unofficial coordination committee set up by the police in the aftermath of the clashes, said.On Saturday, the sarpanch of Vadhu Budruk, Rekha Shivale, told the commission that the gram panchayat office has no record of the samadhi of Govind Ganapat Gaikwad, a Mahar who is claimed by the Dalit community to have performed the last rites of the slain Maratha King Sambhaji (Shivaji’s son).Ms. Shivale said while the panchayat has records of the samadhis of Chhatrapati Sambhaji, his aide, the poet Kavi Kalash, and the documents of historical shrines in the area, there is no such record of Gaikwad’s samadhi which might have come up in the last two years.Two days before the Bhima-Koregaon clash, a dispute broke out between upper caste Marathas and Dalits in Vadhu Budruk on December 29 last year over a rudimentary plaque erected near the tomb of Gaikwad.Dalits believe Gaikwad had defied Mughal emperor Aurangzeb to perform the last rites of Sambhaji after the latter was tortured and murdered by Aurangzeb in 1689, and had paid with his life for this deed.However, Marathas of Vadhu-Budruk claim the Mahars’ account is a distortion of history and that it was their ancestors — Shivale Deshmukh alias Bapuji Buva and his wife Padmavati — who performed Sambhaji’s final rites.Dr. Dhende said, “The Vadhu Budruk gram panchayat, which is dominated by Marathas, has tampered with documents Prahlad Gaikwad, who owns the land on which the samadhi is situated. The tomb of Govind Ganpat, along with those of other Mahar soldiers who had fought the Bhima-Koregaon battle, has been present in the village for nearly 150 years. The gram panchayat members are attempting to distort history through such [Ms. Shivale’s] testimonies.”Meanwhile, the Republican Yuva Morcha’s State president, Rahul Dambale, has moved an application before the commission demanding that it complete its work before December 25.

(AP Photo/Tim Ireland)LONDON — Bothered by what he called a “hole” at Centre Court, Novak Djokovic complained about the condition of the grass at Wimbledon on Tuesday.Djokovic, who defeated Adrian Mannarino in the fourth round, said the courts are among the worst he’s played on in his 13 years at the All England Club.ADVERTISEMENT Pagasa: Kammuri now a typhoon, may enter PAR by weekend Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ LATEST STORIES “He wanted me to show him, so I showed him,” Djokovic said at a news conference. “His reaction wasn’t that great.”Mannarino, who had not played on Centre Court until he faced Djokovic, said his only concern about the surface was that he had to make sure he didn’t slip during the match.“To me, the Centre Court (was) really good, actually,” Mannarino said. “Maybe he was complaining a little bit, but compared to the other courts I’ve been playing on before, it was good.”Tuesday was the first day persistent rain moved over southwest London since Wimbledon started. Because of the dry conditions, the 18 courts saw nearly uninterrupted play over the first seven days of the tournament, which led to consistent wear.Neil Stubley, the club’s head of courts and horticulture, said on Saturday that the measurements his staff had taken over the first week of play showed that the grass was considered to be healthy and within the acceptable standards of use.ADVERTISEMENT Another vape smoker nabbed in Lucena Pacquiao: Until passion is gone, I’ll continue to fight El Nido residents told to vacate beach homes View comments He also expressed confidence that the surface at Centre Court would be able to hold up over the second week.Simona Halep, whose quarterfinal loss to Johanna Konta was the third match on Centre Court on Tuesday, said she didn’t notice the hole Djokovic had mentioned.And Djokovic said the issue wasn’t one of safety as much as it was about fair play.“Grass is probably the most demanding and complex surface for maintenance,” he said. “The more you play on it, the worse it actually gets, unfortunately.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next China furious as Trump signs bills in support of Hong Kong Pagasa: Storm intensifies as it nears PAR Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
