Dynamic Cloud Resources and Accountability

I reread this article from time to time just to make sure that I stay within some boundaries – 21 Experts Define Cloud Computing.  Among the 21, there are a couple that I really like; I’m going to cite a few of them over the next few days, and tell you what I like and don’t like about them (Also – remember, the title reads “21 Experts…” – it didn’t say “21 Experts in Cloud Computing…” – details matter).  This article was brought to my attention in a blog post, “Rumblings in the Cloud,” by Louis Lovas at Progress Apama.

Twitter, DarkStar & Telescope – Delivering Sentiment to an Equities Broker

Cloud Event Processing has moved off the white board and into the real world of, ‘hey, we’ve got customers!’ Twitter When building a system like DarkStar, one can always run into difficulties – how does one demo a cloud based, distributed event processing system incorporating streaming map/reduce, complex event processing, and event driven pattern matching agents to prospective customers?  Our background includes very high velocity feeds, like equities and option market data feeds, but using those for demo purposes can be difficult.  So we decided on using Twitter.  We decided ...

Data Mining in Streaming Data

Lately, I’ve been working on some interesting projects involving not just the usual suspects of stream processing, but data mining within high velocity time series.  In conjunction with that effort, I’ve been doing a lot of research in the areas of symbolic representation, dimension reduction, clustering, indexing, classification, and anomaly detection.  A prolific  researcher in this area is Dr. Eamonn Keogh – I’ll be applying some of his team’s ideas so some interesting customer problems and telling you all about it here.  Let’s get started! TOO MUCH DATA In dealing with real... (more)

My Top Five Cloud Predictions for 2011: Colin Clark

Every year, I like to decompress a bit and take a break. Usually, I like to go scuba diving – the dive sites I like are usually far removed from email, Twitter, Facebook, etc. and it gives me a chance to actually unplug, defrag, and think a bit. This year, the family went to Grand Cayman to experience some of the world’s best diving. Within Grand Cayman is Hell, a small township dedicated to tourism and aptly named given the attached photo. We visited Hell in between dives, and rather than make my ex-wife room reservations or send out postcards, I thought I’d amplify a few predic... (more)
