Apache Hadoop ecosystem - March 2013

Apache Hadoop ecosystem continues to evolve at a rapid pace with newer projects that are being added as incubators while those currently under incubation are getting ready to graduate out. Let’s visit the current state of open source Apache Hadoop ecosystem.

About the categorization:
(1)   Core Layers – this category comprises the core components which are required in part or as a whole to optimally leverage Apache Hadoop
(2)  Atmospheric Layers – this category comprises the additional components which provide advanced capabilities and insights for the composite use cases.

The nomenclature adopted for categories (core/atmospheric) and layers does not constitute official lingo and are being introduced to demarcate the basic use case versus advanced use cases of Apache Hadoop. As Hadoop distribution matures out along with technology stacks built up by organizations, we expect components and probably even layers to move around from one category to other.

Other open source projects/components like Cloudera Impala, Kerberos, Protocol Buffer etc. are not included in this ecosystem diagram since they are not Apache Software Foundation (ASF) projects.

In-memory data model with Apache Gora

Open source in-memory data model and persistence for big data framework Apache Gora™ version 0.3, was released in May 2013. The 0.3 release offers significant improvements and changes to a number of modules including a number of bug fixes. However, what may be of significant interest to the DynamoDB community will be the addition of a gora-dynamodb datastore for mapping and persisting objects to Amazon's DynamoDB. Additionally the release includes various improvements to the gora-core and gora-cassandra modules as well as a new Web Services API implementation which enables users to extend Gora to any cloud storage platform of their choice. This 2-part post provides commentary on all of the above and a whole lot more, expanding to cover where Gora fits in within the NoSQL and Big Data space, the development challenges and features which have been baked into Gora 0.3 and finally what we have on the road map for the 0.4 development drive.

Top Big Data Influencers of 2015

2015 was an exciting year for big data and hadoop ecosystem. We saw hadoop becoming an essential part of data management strategy of almost all major enterprise organizations. There is cut throat competition among IT vendors now to help realize the vision of data hub, data lake and data warehouse with Hadoop and Spark.
As part of its annual assessment of big data and hadoop ecosystem, HadoopSphere publishes a list of top big data influencers each year. The list is derived based on a scientific methodology which involves assessing various parameters in each category of influencers. HadoopSphere Top Big Data Influencers list reflects the people, products, organizations and portals that exercised the most influence on big data and ecosystem in a particular year. The influencers have been listed in the following categories:

5 online tools in data visualization playground

While building up an analytics dashboard, one of the major decision points is regarding the type of charts and graphs that would provide better insight into the data. To avoid a lot of re-work later, it makes sense to try the various chart options during the requirement and design phase. It is probably a well known myth that existing tool options in any product can serve all the user requirements with just minor configuration changes. We all know and realize that code needs to be written to serve each customer’s individual needs.
To that effect, here are 5 tools that could empower your technical and business teams to decide on visualization options during the requirement phase. Listed below are online tools for you to add data and use as playground.
