Top 5 Emerging Big Data Open-Source Technologies 2013

Big Data is in and of itself a new phenomenon, and keeping track of all the emergent technologies in the field can be dizzying. With that in mind, here are a few technologies to keep an eye on as they mature and evolve throughout 2013! 1. Cloudera Impala While Impala isn’t the newest on this list, it’s definitely one to watch out for in 2013. Cloudera’s implementation of real-time data processing in Hadoop is inspired- Hadoop’s disk-based storage format isn’t normally known for real-time ad-hoc query capability, but Impala uses some great open-source technologies to implement it. It uses the same metadata… View full post »

The Open-source Development Culture and Why Linux Doesn't Work Like the Others

To developers moving from a relatively closed system, such as Windows or OSX environment, to the open Linux architecture, the learning curve involves far more than adding a new language or architecture to your repertoire. It usually means fundamentally changing how things are done from an engineering perspective. Coding in a restricted or closed environment, where access to the source code for related apps and the core platform itself is limited, often means making guesses as to how things will interact and spending a lot of time (and lines of code) working around those interactions or restrictions. … View full post »

6 Open Source Big Data Technologies to Keep Tabs On

It’s safe to say that ‘big data’ is the big buzzword de jour, and that is unlikely to change. Many of the major players in the tech industry are leveraging big data to spectacular and varied effect, and though it may be used a little too much as a buzzword, it is one of the most important developments in the tech industry. What’s more, the cotemporaneous rise of open source software means that many of the most exciting big data technologies are open source, with strong communities developing around many big data tools. In this article, we’ll run through a… View full post »

HP Releases WebOS to Open Source

As recently announced, HP has began the process that will release webOS to the open-source community. This is great news for developers that have been wanting to create software for these devices and probably the best outcome that HP could have made since they were no longer going to develop the platform. This is also an opportunity to bring together Linux and other open-source mobile platforms together to join forces in a meaningful way. webOS’s open-source license is thought to be similar to the Apache foundation. HP has also consulted with Red Hat to possibly create a license… View full post »

Open Source Network Management Tools

Computer networks today have grown in size and complexity. Monitoring and managing the various servers, routers, switches and other devices that make up a modern network is a daunting task. In the enterprise space, several vendors have created robust suites of tools to simplify this process such as HP OpenView and IBM Tivoli. However, what many do not realize is that there are many capable and robust suites of open source networking tools available to simplify network management and monitoring at the fraction of the cost of those expensive enterprise solutions. These open source networking suites… View full post »
