How to Cross Link Data and Why You Should Do So

The 3Vs model is the foundation of big data - Volume, Velocity, and Variety. It is used to express the key features of big data problems - for me, this is about to change. Big Data is not just about size, speed, or formats, the contextual enrichment is the most critical factor of how we unmask the best value out of data. How well you bring seemingly unrelated data together and identify the valuable connections determines how much power you unleash from your…

The assumptions on which the RDBMS is based has changed: data and code

In general, computer scientists treats code and data in two very different ways. Virtual memory was originally developed to run big programs (code) in small memory, while data are entities kept in external storage and must be retrieved into memory before computing. As a result, today’s application developers think by instinct the programming model based on storage and explicit data retrieval. This model, referred to as storage-based computing, plays an important role and has done a great job…

What is the difference between in-memory and in-place computing approach?

To be short, in-memory computing takes advantage of physical memory, which is expected to process data much faster than disk. In-place, on the other hand, fully utilizes the address space of 64bit architecture. Both are gifts from the modern computer science; both are essences of the BigObject. 

In-place computing only becomes possible upon the introduction of 64bit architecture, whose address space is big enough to hold the entire data set for most of cases we are dealing with today.…

The BigObject - an Agile Analytic Engine for Big Data

Hi all,

This is my first post here. I'm glad to introduce this newly launched big data analytic engine, the BigObject. In the past 2 years we have been working on an optimal approach to handle big data for analytic purposes and challenging the existed models, some assumptions of which are no longer valid. For example, as the data size grows so rapidly, is it still practical that we stick to the relational models neglecting the time spending in data retrievals? What impact did…
