Alluxio: Open Source Tech Making Baidu’s Data Centers Faster

Filed under

Baidu switched to Spark SQL, a query engine that enables you to run SQL queries against Apache Spark, the open source Big Data processing engine that replaces the batch analytics approach of MapReduce and Hadoop with real-time, or stream analytics. It helped, but not to the extent they had hoped.

Events: DebCamp, openSUSE Conference, OSSummit Japan 2018

  • Yes! I am going to...
    Of course, DebCamp is not a vacation, so we expect people that take part of DebCamp to have at least a rough sketch of activities. There are many, many things I want to tackle, and experience shows there's only time for a fraction of what's planned.
  • Dates, Location set for openSUSE Conference 2019
    The openSUSE Project is pleased to announce the location and dates for the 2019 openSUSE Conference. The openSUSE Conference 2019 will return to the Z-Bau in Nuremberg, Germany, and be Friday, May 24, through Sunday, May 26. Planning for the 2019 conference will begin this summer and community members are encouraged to take part in the planning of the conference through the organizing team.

Programming/Development: Math Libraries for Python, Compiler Fuzzing With Prog-Fuzz, Intel MKL and Flutter

  • 10 Best Math Libraries for Python
    Many times, when you write programs you need to use special functions that others have used before you. When this happens, open source comes to the rescue and gives you a library that covers that need. Python calls theirs modules, to use modules you need to import them.Modules for mathematics are especially useful when you have the theory ready but need to use standard math for your particular problem.  The Mathematics module in the Python standard library has many features. It is useful to check if you can solve your problem easily with these functions. If you need to know what functions exist you need to go through the list. However, first realize that the module implements all the C standard functions. The simplest use of Python for math is as a calculator. To do this, start Python on the terminal and use the print function.
  • Compiler Fuzzing With Prog-Fuzz Is Turning Up Bugs In GCC, Clang
    Vegard Nossum of Oracle has been working on fuzzing different open-source compilers for turning up bugs within these code compiler likes GCC and Clang. Vegard ended up writing a new compiler fuzzer from scratch making use of AFL instrumentation. This new fuzzer is dubbed simply Prog-Fuzz and is available on GitHub.
  • Intel MKL in Debian / Ubuntu follow-up
    About two months ago, in the most recent post in the series, #18, we provided a short tutorial about how to add the Intel Math Kernel Library to a Debian or Ubuntu system thanks to the wonderful apt tool -- and the prepackaged binaries by Intel. This made for a simple, reproducible, scriptable, and even reversible (!!) solution---which a few people seem to have appreciated. Good.
