Links of the day 25 - 09 - 2014

Today's links 25/09/2014: #NoSQL , #BigData , #performance , #startup , system analysis
  • Memory System Characterization of Big Data Workloads : characterization of the memory access patterns of various Hadoop and noSQL #bigdata workloads - 2013 IEEE big data conference.
  • NoSQL benchmarks : Virtualization can add  20% to 200% overhead for #nosql workload. Good amount of room for hyper-visor improvement there.
  • StartUp lecture : annotated note, video and audio of "How to Start a Startup Lecture 1 " by Sam Altman - the President of Y Combinator.
  • SysDig : a very nice tool for doing system-level exploration: capture state / activity from a running Linux instance then save, filter, analyze. While it is only for post-mortem analysis this would make a great addition to the continuous integration toolkit.
