2013-11 : Why You Should Never Use MongoDB | Sarah Mei, blog post - 10 views

  • I’ve heard many people talk about dropping MongoDB in to their web application as a replacement for MySQL or PostgreSQL. There are no circumstances under which that is a good idea.
  • Schema flexibility sounds like a great idea, but the only time it’s actually useful is when the structure of your data has no value.
  • When you’re picking a data store, the most important thing to understand is where in your data — and where in its connections — the business value lies.

STXXL : Standard Template Library for Extra Large Data Sets - 4 views

    • The key features of STXXL are:

  • Transparent support of parallel disks. The library provides implementations of basic parallel disk algorithms. STXXL is the only external memory algorithm library supporting parallel disks.
  • The library is able to handle problems of very large size (tested to up to dozens of terabytes).
  • ...4 more annotations...
    • Improved utilization of computer resources. STXXL implementations of external memory algorithms and data structures benefit from overlapping of I/O and computation.
    • Small constant factors in I/O volume. A unique library feature called "pipelining" can save more than half the number of I/Os, by streaming data between algorithmic components, instead of temporarily storing them on disk. A development branch supports asynchronous execution of the algorithmic components, enabling high-level task parallelism.
    • Shorter development times due to well known STL-compatible interfaces for external memory algorithms and data structures.
      • For internal computation, parallel algorithms from the MCSTL or the libstdc++ parallel mode are optionally utilized, making the algorithms inherently benefit from multi-core parallelism.

    « The core of STXXL is an implementation of the C++ standard template library STL for external memory (out-of-core) computations, i. e., STXXL implements containers and algorithms that can process huge volumes of data that only fit on disks. »

Open Data Protocol Q&A - 1 views

  •  
    "The Open Data Protocol (OData) is a web protocol for querying and updating data. OData applies web technologies such as HTTP, Atom Publishing Protocol (AtomPub) and JSON to provide access to information from a variety of applications, services, and stores. OData emerged organically based on the experiences implementing AtomPub clients and servers in a variety of products over the past several years."

Open Data Protocol - 2 views

  •  
    "Microsoft has released OData under the Open Specification Promise (OSP) to allow anyone to freely interoperate with OData implementations. We intend on working with the community to move the features of OData into future version of AtomPub or other appropriate standards. "

A Really Gentle Introduction to Data Mining | Regular Geek - 0 views

  •  
    Excerpt: "Data mining is the process of extracting hidden patterns from data. As more data is gathered data mining is becoming an increasingly important tool to transform this data into information. It is commonly used in a wide range of profiling practices, such as marketing, surveillance, fraud detection and scientific discovery."

M - The modelling language - 0 views

  •  
    M seems to be like LINQ for data structure generation: a simple template language with assemblers for different back-end technologies.
  •  
    The Microsoft code name "M" language is a declarative language for working with data and building domain models. "M" lets users write down how they want to structure and query their data using a textual syntax that is convenient to both author and reader.

Microsoft Sync Framework - Download - 0 views

  • The Microsoft Sync Framework provides a platform for taking web services and databases offline. In addition, it provides optimized P2P sync of any type of file including contacts, music, videos, images and settings. The extensible framework includes built-in support for synchronizing databases, NTFS/FAT file systems, FeedSync compliant feeds (formerly known as Simple Sharing Extensions), devices and web services.
  • Developers can build sync ecosystems that integrate any application, any type of data, using any protocol over any network.
