“I think the biggest challenge is that in the rail business we have a very large set of old and country specific regulations that date back many decades. These regulations are meant to protect passengers, but some of them are not anymore fitting to the modern capabilities of technology and instead drive cost and slow innovation down dramatically.” –Gerhard Kress
Artificial intelligence acts as an enabler for many innovations
in the rail industry.

Analyzing transactional data is becoming increasingly common, especially as the data sizes and complexity increase and transactional stores are no longer to keep pace with the ever-increasing storage. Although there are many techniques available for loading data, getting effective data in real-time into your data warehouse store is a more difficult problem. VMware Continuent provides
A few months ago I updated my profile on LinkedIN, and adjusted my position as CTO and
founder of Athoa Ltd, a British company currently active for
translation services and events that in the past hosted a couple
of interesting open source projects. I simply forgot to disable
the email notification to my connections, set by default, and in
2-3 hours I received tens of messages from friends and
ex-colleagues who were curious to hear about my new
Today, I changed my profile on LinkedIN again and have left the email notification set on purpose.
As of today, I join the team at ScaleDB. My role is to define the product and the strategy for the company, working closely with CEO Tom Arthur, CTO …

In my previous post about Hadoop and Impala I benchmarked performance of analytical queries in Impala.
This time I’ve tried InfiniDB for Hadoop (open-source version) on the modern hardware with an 8-node Hadoop cluster. One of the main advantages (at least for me) of InifiniDB for Hadoop is that it stores the data inside the Hadoop cluster but uses the MySQL server to execute queries. This allows for an easy “migration” of existing analytical tools. The results are quite interesting and promising.
The InfiniDB documentation is not very clear on step-by-step instructions so I’ve created this quick guide:
- Install Hadoop cluster (minimum …
Oracle is the most powerful DBMS in the world. However, Oracle's expensive and complex replication makes it difficult to build highly available applications or move data in real-time to data warehouses and popular databases like MySQL. In this webinar-on-demand you will learn how Continuent Tungsten solves problems with Oracle replication at a fraction of the cost of other solutions and with less
