Interesting Stuff - Week 13

Posted by nielsb on Saturday, March 31, 2018

Throughout the week, I read a lot of blog-posts, articles, and so forth, that has to do with things that interest me:

  • data science
  • data in general
  • distributed computing
  • SQL Server
  • transactions (both db as well as non db)
  • and other “stuff”

This blog-post is the “roundup” of the things that have been most interesting to me, for the week just ending.

Azure Cloud

  • Implementation patterns for big data and data warehouse on Azure. A blog post which lists some patterns and tools for big data as well as data warehouses in the Azure world. When I read it, I was surprised to see no mention of Azure Data Lake in the different patterns. I wrote a comment and asked about it, and received the answer that Azure Data Lake was a possibility instead of Azure Blob Store.



  • Anna: A KVS for any scale. A dissection, done by Adrian of a white-paper about a new key-value store system: Anna. Anna is a partitioned and multi-mastered system, which achieves high performance and elasticity via wait-free execution and coordination-free consistency. Very exciting stuff!

Data Science & AI

That’s all for this week. I hope you enjoy what I did put together. If you have ideas for what to cover, please comment on this post or ping me.
