Even though the earliest LANs were of this genre, by 1989 it appeared that they were on the way out. By 1992, however, new life had been breathed into peer-to-peer networking by both Novell and Microsoft, along with the popularity of Artisoft's LANtastic. We will take a close look at peer-to-peer LANs at a deeper level in some future posts

Big Data - Extracting and Loading from Operational Systems

IT Toolbox

In today’s IT world big data applications are common. We have evolved some standard responses to the needs for these applications. One common reaction is that big data requires a “scaling up”: more CPUs, more memory, more resources. Another theme is the availability of special-purpose hardware and software for storing and analyzing big data. However, big
