Four and a Half Types of NoSQL Databases

Four and a Half Types of NoSQL Databases | The Rise of the Algorithmic Medium | Scoop.it
Relational database management systems (RDBMSs) have essentially obliterated every other database technology along the way, including object-oriented, Information Management System (IMS) and object-relational.

Summary:  In just the six or seven short years since the first commercial implementation of a Hadoop NoSQL database Machine Learning has come to mean so much more than it did before.
The question often comes up from folks starting to explore data science, just what is Machine Learning?  When I started out it was easy to explain.  Machine Learning (ML) was the category of mathematical algorithms like regression, clustering, decision trees, and neural nets used t

Software-defined data center - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Software-defined data center

Software-defined data center (SDDC) is an architectural approach to IT infrastructure that extends virtualization concepts such as abstraction, pooling, and automation to all of the data center's resources and services to achieve IT as a service.
