Links of the day 26 - 01 - 2015

Today's links 26/01/2015: #compression, text extraction, #cloud message queue comparison and #benchmarking
  • ZSTD : short for Z-Standard ( and not Zombie-STD - dirty mind...), is a new lossless compression algorithm, aiming at providing both great compression ratio andspeed for your standard compression needs. It delivers decompression a rate around ~500 MB/s per core and compressiong rate of 200 MB/s ( so no real time for you).
  • Ocropus : when you need to extract text from an image 
  • Comparison of Message Queue Architecture on AWS : the short version is that if you are not latency sensitive and don't want to spend too much effort use SQS for job management and Kinesis for event stream processing. On the contrary if latency is critical ELB or RabbitMQs (or beanstalkds) for job management and Redis for event stream processing.
  • Flotilla : Automated message queue orchestration for scaled-up benchmarking.
