Building a Low Latency Highly Scalable Data Serialization Protocol

At the heart of every big data solution, such as XAP, is data synchronization. While there are a number of solutions and approaches available today, they are either overly complex or incredibly inefficient. Fortunately, we have been able to combine

Availability and Consistency in the Presence of Partitions

The CAP theorem provides system designers with a choice between three guarantees: consistency, availability, and partition tolerance. While partitions are rare, there is an incredible range of flexibility for handling partitions and recovering from them. Thus, our goal is to

REST Data Service Over In-Memory Data Grid

Applications are written in diverse and often remote environments. Storing and accessing data needs to be simple and portable, which is why REST (representational state transfer) is often the go-to protocol for web services. And yet, using REST for data

Building a dynamic high-speed data-hub with multi-semantic querying capabilities

After having the opportunity to present this topic at the recent Big Data Expo in Utrecht, Netherlands (and a few other expos) I thought it would also be a good time to share my thinking with the online community. Data storage &
