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.


Distributed Computing

  • The FuzzyLog: a partially ordered shared log. Another white-paper dissected by Adrian. This time it is about FuzzyLog and the FuzzyLog abstraction which extends the shared log approach to partial orders, allowing applications to scale linearly without sacrificing transactional guarantees, and switch seamlessly between these guarantees when the network partitions and heals.

WIND (What Is Niels Doing)

I am still trying to get to grips with SQL Server 2019 Big Data Cluster, and now I better sort it out as I on Wednesday (November 7), is supposed to give a presentation about Building a SQL 2019 Big Data Cluster on Azure Kubernetes Service. If you are in Durban, please come by and say Hi!
