Harness the power of PolyBase data virtualization software to make data from a variety of sources easily accessible through SQL queries while using the T-SQL skills you already know and have mastered.
PolyBase Revealed shows you how to use the PolyBase feature of SQL Server 2019 to integrate SQL Server with Azure Blob Storage, Apache Hadoop, other SQL Server instances, Oracle, Cosmos DB, Apache Spark, and more. You will learn how PolyBase can help you reduce storage and other costs by avoiding the need for ETL processes that duplicate data in order to make it accessible from one source. PolyBase makes SQL Server into that one source, and T-SQL is your golden ticket. The book also covers PolyBase scale-out clusters, allowing you to distribute PolyBase queries among several SQL Server instances, thus improving performance.
With great flexibility comes great complexity, and this book shows you where to look when queries fail, complete with coverage of internals, troubl ...

Designing Event-Driven Systems
Many forces affect software today: larger datasets, geographical disparities, complex company structures, and the growing need to be fast and nimble in the face of change. Proven approaches such as service-oriented and event-driven architectures are joined by newer techniques such as microservices, reactive architectures, DevOps, and stream processing. Many of these patterns are successful by themselves, but as this practical ebook demonstrates, they provide a more holistic and compelling approach when applied together.
Author Ben Stopford explains how service-based architectures and stream processing tools such as Apache Kafka can help you build business-critical systems. You'll learn how to apply patterns including Event Sourcing and CQRS, and how to build multi-team systems with microservices and SOA using patterns such as "inside out databases" and "event streams as a source of truth." These approaches provide a unique foundation for how these large, autonomous service ec ...
Machine Learning with Apache Spark Quick Start Guide
Every person and every organization in the world manages data, whether they realize it or not. Data is used to describe the world around us and can be used for almost any purpose, from analyzing consumer habits to fighting disease and serious organized crime. Ultimately, we manage data in order to derive value from it, and many organizations around the world have traditionally invested in technology to help process their data faster and more efficiently.
But we now live in an interconnected world driven by mass data creation and consumption where data is no longer rows and columns restricted to a spreadsheet, but an organic and evolving asset in its own right. With this realization comes major challenges for organizations: how do we manage the sheer size of data being created every second (think not only spreadsheets and databases, but also social media posts, images, videos, music, blogs and so on)? And once we can manage all of this data, how do we derive real value from it?
