In Madrid, Paris, Munich, Zurich and Geneva we are presenting at JBoss
Forums, talking about the product portfolio and zooming in to the JBoss
Business Rules Management System (BRMS).
I took the time to demo several of our integration products, both BRMS and
the SOA platform as they leverage rules, bpel, bpm and complex event
processing. The demo projects are freely available online so that you too can
rock your own JBoss sessions!
I came across an article discussing NoSQL and partition tolerance.
The NoSQL Partition Tolerance Myth (link)
I may not entirely agree with the author.
But what most NoSQL systems offer is a peculiar behavior that is not
partition tolerant, but partition oblivious instead.
No argument here. While NoSQL implementations are aware that nodes have left,
they are not aware that said nodes have formed a separate partition.
In this case, we would want failure detection and carry out those transfers
where the accounts are both on the same side of the partition, while denying

Last October I published a post that identified the features that both JBoss
Data Grid and Oracle Coherence provide (link). My goal was to establish a
baseline for the features that a data grid should provide. It was not to
state that one data grid was better than the other. Little did I know an
Oracle employee would respond by attacking Red Hat, its engineers, and
It is fear? Is it hostility? I don’t know.
I have engaged in discussions with competitors before. Roman and I engaged in
a competitive discussion in response to one of my posts comparing IBM
WebSphere and JBo... (more)
My working title was Big Data, Storage Dilemma.
They say dilemma. I say dilemna. I'm serious. I spell it dilemna.
Big Data presents something of a storage dilemma. There is no one data store
to rule them all.
Should different data structures be persisted to different storage mediums?
Identifying the appropriate medium is a function of performance, cost, and
Random Access Memory
It's fast. Very. It's expense. Very.
If we are configuring an HP DL980 G7 server, it will cost $3,672 for 128GB of
memory with 8x 16GB modules or $9,996 for 128GB of memory with 4x 3... (more)
