The rise of open source software has brought a shift in data storage methods. However, it directly doesn’t interfere in any of the data storage methods but open source technologies can establish easy and simple data connection methods which make open source more powerful and popular to be used with almost all the platforms. The wide scope of incorporating the code of different languages together makes the platform even more useful in comparison to other platforms.
Our experts of PHP development evaluate open source projects by looking closely at five aspects of the project:
Responsible Nature — the open source technology fully adopts responsive nature and supports it.
Accessible commit process — Open source ensures that there is a clearly defined process for making contributions that use outside contributors.
Diverse ecosystem — Multiple vendors support open source community.
Participative community — Active community to explore new innovations to stay with competition.
Open governance — Ensure the main essence of open source technology remains as it is.
With these considerations in place, Open source projects managed in this manner will flourish to the benefit of all. Now let’s come to the Analytics part of open source projects.
Big Data and open source
Big data have been heavily involved in many open source software components. The figure approach shows the breadth of involvement in data/analytics related activities ranging from data movement through, to tools for the big data developers.
Let’s see below that how some of the components work with big data.
Hadoop has emerged as a standard platform for storing data in a wide variety of formats. HDFS and map reduce have been seen as the ‘analytics tool’ but of course one size doesn’t fit all! Often inappropriate analytic workloads have been applied to map reduce models. Hadoop can be seen as one platform in a set of platforms that are required to handle all analytic requirements from traditional BI workloads to large exploratory queries to things like text analytics. This to memakes much more sense where a combination of tools is used to manage a combination of very different problems.
Wrapped around Hadoop are a whole set of tools that enables data to be transformed, managed secured and so on.
Apache Atlas is an open source metadata engine that is based on the Titan Graph db. It is a standard for metadata management in the Hadoop environment and can also be used to import metadata from a variety of other sources. However, it is still early days for Atlas and needs wider adoption. IBM is working with the open source community, other vendors and clients to accelerate Atlas’s capabilities. The advantage of open source is it’s just that – an open solution is driven by the OS community to meet the demands of clients – all others who wish to use this software may add it to their own tooling and develop an open ecosystem that allows metadata to be easily shared across such platforms.
Apache HBase Solutions
A columnar db that is modeled on googles Big Table. Its highly scalable can work across distributed nodes (using Hadoop file system), and it is subject to the CAP theorem (Consistent, Available, Partition-tolerant) which says you can only actually satisfy two of these properties. HBase is run over HDFS so of course is partitionable and exhibits strong consistency at the expense of availability sometimes. In other words, when data is distributed across multiple partitions and copies it can always be relied upon to be consistent across those nodes at the expense of availability in some instances. This normally takes the form of data being locked from users whilst consistency is forced across nodes. Often used as an operational database rather than an analytical one.
Apache Spark Solutions
Apache Spark is fast becoming the analytics platform for the data scientist and beyond.Apache Spark is split into 4 capabilities:
Spark SQL – Allows users to use the familiar SQL language to query all forms of data. There are at least 3 variations to being able to build SQL-like queries, using resilient distributed datasets (RDD), DataFrames or DataSets with differing versions of Spark. Please see the Apache Spark guides for more information.
Spark Streaming – Similar to the streaming mentioned above but is actually ‘micro batches’ which enable streaming like functions until data becomes very fast flowing
Machine Learning – A set of machine learning libraries that can also exploit ‘R’ which offers Data Scientists a very rich set of analytical functions to work with (Classification models, regression, clustering, decision trees and much more)
For several years, open technologies have managed themselves and found to be more successful, and are less risky than proprietary projects. And the time really is now, analytics tooling is viewed very favorably by analysts in the. The capabilities within the broad range of analytic tooling provide can satisfy clients’ needs in any of the Hybrid cloud scenarios that are developed.
Big data development companies are committed to using Open Source in enabling it to create a new, sophisticated set of tools that can be used smoothly and simply against its existing cloud-based analytics.
