John McPherson, Distinguished Engineer from IBM research introduces the Big Data ecosystem and use cases for Big Data such as financial fraud detection.
Disney faces data scale and latency requirements across various business segments that have outpaced the ability of traditional relational data stores to keep up. At Disney Technology and Shared Services, we are tasked with providing cross-company solutions. In order to address this problem we have developed a Data-as-a-Service platform that encompasses several NoSQL Technologies, including Cassandra, to enable different developer groups at Disney to meet those scale and latency requirements without having to ramp up and acquire deep domain knowledge of the underlying storage platforms.
In this video, Marco Cantu speaks about the best practices and approaches to develop Firebird and Delphi applications with dbExpress framework.
SQL Injection is a vulnerability that is often missed by web application security scanners, and it’s a vulnerability that is often rated as NOT exploitable by security testers when it actually can be exploited. Advanced SQL Injection is a presentation geared toward showing security professionals advanced exploitation techniques for situations when you must prove to the customer the extent of compromise that is possible.
Learn how StackOverflow.com can serve 12-14 million web pages per day with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2. They’re passionate about performance, and we’ll share the scalability lessons they learned along the way. This session is aimed at production DBAs who manage SQL Servers that need to go faster and SQL programmers who don’t understand why their database won’t deliver queries quicker. You’ll learn the basic infrastructure behind StackOverflow.com, the decisions made along the way while building the infrastructure, and how to tell when you need to make infrastructure and coding …
This tutorial explains in simple terms what the SQL Injection vulnerability is, and how real threats result from this typical exploitation. It features a sample exploitation scenario illustrating clear steps of what an attacker may do with a website which is vulnerable to error based SQL Injection.
Pinterest.com has grown to 2.5 billion page views per month in just under a year, and the number one question we’re asked at parties is “what’s in your stack?” Sit back while we take you on a tour of our current architecture, the lessons learned along the way, and the successes.
Couchbase Server is a fully memcached API compatible database that solves performance, scaling and querying needs. It relies on proven technologies like memcached and Apache CouchDB along with a chunk of open source components that make the whole thing work. Couchbase developed a PHP extension to work with Couchbase Server.
This talk discusses parallel asynchronous command execution with Redis & ZeroMQ. Redis is an open source, advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets and sorted sets. ZeroMQ or ØMQ is a high-performance asynchronous messaging library aimed at use in scalable distributed or concurrent applications. It provides a message queue, but unlike message-oriented middleware, a ØMQ system can run without a dedicated message broker. The library is designed to have a familiar socket-style API.
This video presents how MTV Networks Online Division is leveraging MongoDB as the database platform for its next-generation CMS. MongoDB is a scalable, high-performance, open source NoSQL database.
