[Links of the Day] 18/09/2018 : Data transfer project, Observability pipeline, and Operating systems Book

  • Data Transfer Project : open-source, service-to-service data portability platform. Not really sure who would want to transfer data between facebook - google and Microsoft from a privacy point of view... But there is probably a use case. 
  • Veneur : distributed, fault-tolerant pipeline for observability data. This is a really cool project that allows to for aggregate metrics and sends them to downstream storage to one or more supported sinks. It can also act as a global aggregator for histograms, sets and counters. The key advantage of this approach is that you only maintain, store ( and pay for ) the aggregated data rather than the tons of separate data points. 
  • Operating Systems - Three Easy Pieces : free operating system book centred around three conceptual pieces that are fundamental to operating systems: virtualization, concurrency, and persistence
