How-to and Performance Impact of SSL-Encrypted Replication Traffic in Galera Cluster for MySQL

Deploying Galera Clusters across WAN environments might lead to concerns around data privacy and security - especially as more organisations are having to comply with national and international regulations.

Big Data Integration & ETL - Moving Live Clickstream Data from MongoDB to Hadoop for Analytics

MongoDB is great at storing clickstream data, but using it to analyze millions of documents can be challenging. Hadoop provides a way of processing and analyzing data at large scale. Since it is a parallel system, workloads can be split on multiple nodes and computations on large datasets can be done in relatively short timeframes. MongoDB data can be moved into Hadoop using ETL tools like Talend or Pentaho Data Integration (Kettle).
