Cloudera adds data engineering capability to enable DataOps

Big data vendor Cloudera is growing its portfolio with a series of efforts aimed at enabling a DataOps model.

Earlier this month, the company, based in Santa Clara, Calif., announced new and upcoming features for its Cloudera Data Platform, including Cloudera Data Engineering and Cloudera Data Visualization. The Data Engineering service makes use of Apache Spark for data queries and the Apache Airflow platform for workflow monitoring. The Data Visualization offering is based on technology that comes from Cloudera’s 2019 acquisition of Arcadia Data, which provides reporting and charting functionality.

Cloudera Data Engineering is generally available now; Cloudera Data Visualization is in technical preview.

According to Doug Henschen, an analyst at Constellation Research, Cloudera makes a good case for the breadth and depth of capabilities it can deliver without the heavy lifting of knitting together multiple point solutions, like databases, analytics environments and streaming tools. That said, he added that Cloudera also knows it still has work to do on simplifying its platform to lower the cost of ownership and maximize value for customers looking to support data engineering, as well as data science, data warehousing and operational database use cases.

China Sends Nine Satellites Into Space in First Sea-Based Commercial Launch

China has successfully sent nine satellites into orbit in its first commercial launch of a rocket from a platform at sea, state media reported on Wednesday.

The satellites, one of which belonged to video-sharing platform Bilibili, were deployed by a Long March 11 rocket from the Yellow Sea on Tuesday, media reported.

The Long March 11, designed to be deployed quickly and from mobile launch sites such as a ship, is mainly used to carry small satellites. The rocket made its first sea launch in June last year.

“Sea launch platforms will increase the number of China’s launch areas, improve launch efficiency, and make launches safer and more flexible,” the official People’s Daily cited Li Zongli, director of the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center, as saying.

China has three inland space launch centres, where used rocket stages return to earth and sometimes pose a danger to inhabited areas. Sea launches would reduce that risk.

China has made its space programme a top priority in recent years as it races to catch up with the United States and become a major space power by 2030.

Function Of Devices In Our Life

Mobile phone’s omnipotence now remains unquestioned. It might be that in some lecture rooms, the negatives of cell telephones will outweigh the positives. I don’t assume that anyone can deny the fact that a mobile phone can change into a major distraction. If the phone rings, the entire class is disrupted. Extra often, the distraction comes within the type of college students checking their telephones for messages and sending text messages during class. Every so often, I’ve even had a pupil make the try to play a game during class. Instead of being on task, listening and engaging within the lesson, college students find ways to take a look at and focus on their phones as a substitute.

I let the truth that you’d referred to as folks names in the thread and instructed my pal had a incapacity that was making her angry as a result of she tried to explain to you that old individuals and kids use telephones to read get me very upset. She’s a really clever, good, creative, creative, and eloquent lady with a nice head for figures and statistics. She’s incredible at each ordinology and synthesis. She doesn’t should be patronized or handled rudely …

NASA Plans for Return to Moon to Cost $28 Billion

NASA on Monday revealed its latest plan to return astronauts to the Moon in 2024, and estimated the cost of meeting that deadline at $28 billion (roughly Rs. 2,05,787 crores), $16 billion (roughly Rs. 1,17,592 crores) of which would be spent on the lunar landing module.

Congress, which faces elections on November 3, will have to sign off on the financing for a project that has been set by President Donald Trump as a top priority. The $28 billion (roughly Rs. 2,05,787 crores) would cover the budgetary years of 2021-25. 

In a phone briefing with journalists Monday on the Artemis mission to return human beings to the Moon, NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine noted that “political risks” were often the biggest threat to NASA’s work, especially before such a crucial election.

Barack Obama cancelled plans for a manned Mars mission, after his predecessor spent billions of dollars on the project.

If Congress approves the first tranche of $3.2 billion (roughly Rs. 23,515 crores) by Christmas, “we’re still on track for a 2024 moon landing,” Bridenstine said.

“To be clear, we’re going to the South Pole,” he said, ruling out the sites of the Apollo landings on the Moon’s equator

Innovation is still possible while your team is working from home

Despite initial results, are executives and employees growing frustrated with working from home and concerned that it’s killing innovation? Yes, but there are other ways to foster innovation.

Working from home is affecting all teams differently, but some believe it’s stifling innovation. A recent article in The Wall Street Journal featured excerpts from interviews with various CEOs regarding remote work. More than 60% of the comments were negative about the value and sustainability of working from home, and interestingly only one of those negative comments was related to the logistics and infrastructure of working from home, a common complaint among workers.

Also interesting was that concerns about productivity and quality of work only concerned a single CEO of a startup. The other executives who expressed a negative opinion of working from home were concerned with two overarching themes: Innovation and interpersonal interactions. Much has been made of the initial productivity concerns around working from home, and the surprisingly consistent or even increased productivity in the initial wave of home working. However, concerns around innovation and physical proximity are interesting and

This Is Why Electronics Do not Belong In Your Bed room

Gadget insurance supplies cover for items including cell phones, laptops, cameras, tablets, music players, eReaders and GPS devices, which can be extraordinarily costly. Nevertheless there are good reasons for pondering that the latest round of consumerisation is going to have a far greater impact than its predecessors. One is that rising incomes have created an unlimited, international audience of early adopters for devices. Around 8m units of the Kinect, a Microsoft device that attaches to the Xbox and lets individuals control on-screen motion with their body actions, have been sold inside 60 days of its launch in November 2010. No consumer-electronics device has ever offered so quick, in accordance with Guinness World Information. These people will take in new know-how on a scale that is simply quite beautiful,” says Craig Mundie, Microsoft’s head of analysis and strategy.

There are quite a lot of again-to-school gross sales on laptops this weekend. In any case, you may’t actually return to high school with no laptop lately. The most recent Apple MacBook Air is on sale for $1,099, or $300 of its checklist price of $1,399, whereas the Microsoft Floor Book 2 is going for $1,283, or $216 off its retail value of …
