MySQL for the Internet of Things

Posted on, 1st April, 2016 by admin

This book introduces the problems facing Internet of Things developers and explores current technologies and techniques to help you manage, mine, and make sense of the data being collected through the use of the world’s most popular database on the Internet - MySQL. The IoT is poised to change how we interact with and perceive the world around us, and the possibilities are nearly boundless. As more and more connected devices generate data, we will need to solve the problem of how to collect, store, and make sense of IoT data by leveraging the power of database systems. The book begins with an introduction of the MySQL database system and storage of sensor data. Detailed instructions and examples are provided to show how to add database nodes to IoT solutions including how to leverage MySQL high availability, including examples of how to protect data from node outages using advanced features of MySQL. The book closes with a comparison of raw and transformed data showing how transformed data can improve understandability and help you cut through a clutter of superfluous data toward the goal of mining nuggets of useful knowledge. In this book, you'll learn to: Understand the crisis of vast volumes of data from connected devices Transform data to improve reporting and reduce storage volume Store and aggregate your IoT data across multiple database servers Build localized, low-cost MySQL database servers using small and inexpensive computers Connect Arduino boards and other devices directly to MySQL database servers Build high availability MySQL solutions among low-power computing devicesDownload Now..

How do we design for data when traditional design techniques cannot extend to new database technologies? In this era of big data and the Internet of Things, it is essential that we have the tools we need to understand the data coming to us faster than ever before, and to design databases and data processing systems that can adapt easily to ever-changing data schemas and ever-changing business requirements. There must be no intellectual disconnect between data and the software that manages it. It must be possible to extract meaning and knowledge from data to drive artificial intelligence applications. Novel NoSQL data organization techniques must be used side-by-side with traditional SQL databases. Are existing data modeling techniques ready for all of this? The Concept and Object Modeling Notation (COMN) is able to cover the full spectrum of analysis and design. A single COMN model can represent the objects and concepts in the problem space, logical data design, and concrete NoSQL and SQL document, key-value, columnar, and relational database implementations. COMN models enable an unprecedented level of traceability of requirements to implementation. COMN models can also represent the static structure of software and the predicates that represent the patterns of meaning in databases. This book will teach you: the simple and familiar graphical notation of COMN with its three basic shapes and four line styles how to think about objects, concepts, types, and classes in the real world, using the ordinary meanings of English words that aren't tangled with confused techno-speak how to express logical data designs that are freer from implementation considerations than is possible in any other notation how to understand key-value, document, columnar, and table-oriented database designs in logical and physical terms how to use COMN to specify physical database implementations in any NoSQL or SQL database with the precision necessary for model-driven development "I believe that this is a breakthrough modeling technique - and it is technique, not just notation. COMN provides notation to handle all of the constructs that E-R techniques don't do well, and it steps up to the problem of linking physical and conceptual models. . . . I'm convinced that COMN is the future of data modeling." Dave Wells, BI and Analytics Educator and Consultant, Infocentric Download Now..

Real-time Big Data Analytics

Posted on, 1st April, 2016 by admin

If you are a Big Data architect, developer, or a programmer who wants to develop applications/frameworks to implement real-time analytics using open source technologies, then this book is for you. Design, process, and analyze large sets of complex data in real time About This Book Get acquainted with transformations and database-level interactions, and ensure the reliability of messages processed using Storm Implement strategies to solve the challenges of real-time data processing Load datasets, build queries, and make recommendations using Spark SQL What You Will Learn Explore big data technologies and frameworks Work through practical challenges and use cases of real-time analytics versus batch analytics Develop real-word use cases for processing and analyzing data in real-time using the programming paradigm of Apache Storm Handle and process real-time transactional data Optimize and tune Apache Storm for varied workloads and production deployments Process and stream data with Amazon Kinesis and Elastic MapReduce Perform interactive and exploratory data analytics using Spark SQL Develop common enterprise architectures/applications for real-time and batch analytics In Detail Enterprise has been striving hard to deal with the challenges of data arriving in real time or near real time. Although there are technologies such as Storm and Spark (and many more) that solve the challenges of real-time data, using the appropriate technology/framework for the right business use case is the key to success. This book provides you with the skills required to quickly design, implement and deploy your real-time analytics using real-world examples of big data use cases. From the beginning of the book, we will cover the basics of varied real-time data processing frameworks and technologies. We will discuss and explain the differences between batch and real-time processing in detail, and will also explore the techniques and programming concepts using Apache Storm. Moving on, we'll familiarize you with “Amazon Kinesis” for real-time data processing on cloud. We will further develop your understanding of real-time analytics through a comprehensive review of Apache Spark along with the high-level architecture and the building blocks of a Spark program. You will learn how to transform your data, get an output from transformations, and persist your results using Spark RDDs, using an interface called Spark SQL to work with Spark. At the end of this book, we will introduce Spark Streaming, the streaming library of Spark, and will walk you through the emerging Lambda Architecture (LA), which provides a hybrid platform for big data processing by combining real-time and precomputed batch data to provide a near real-time view of incoming data. Style and approach This step-by-step is an easy-to-follow, detailed tutorial, filled with practical examples of basic and advanced features. Each topic is explained sequentially and supported by real-world examples and executable code snippets. Download Now..
