Where The Cloud Meets The Grid

Posted on November 24, 2014 at 4:35am 0 Comments

Companies build or rent grid machines when data length doesn't fit into HDFS, or the latency of parallel interconnects is too slow in the cloud. This review explores the overlap of the two paradigms at the ends of the parallel processing latency spectrum. The comparison is almost poetic and leads to many other comparisons in languages, interfaces, formats, and hardware, but there is amazingly little overlap.

In the drive towards the semantic web, mailing lists are ripe, low hanging fruit. They are full of wisdom totally inaccessible to the casual user. To unlock this wealth of knowledge for our apps, we need it in a format like the Stack Exchange data dump.



This data dump format is to Stack Exchange what JSON is to JavaScript: an exchange format that spawns growth in ecosystems…
