Most of the papers during this quantity have been offered on the NATO complex learn Workshop excessive functionality Computing: know-how and alertness, held in Cetraro, Italy from 24 to 26 of June, 1996. the most objective of the Workshop used to be to debate a few key medical and technological advancements in excessive functionality computing, determine major traits and defme fascinating examine goals. the amount constitution corresponds, typically, to the description of the workshop technical schedule: basic ideas and rising platforms, software program know-how, algorithms and functions. one of many Workshop suggestions used to be an attempt to increase a little bit the scope of the assembly from scientific/engineering computing to enterprise-wide computing. The papers on functionality and scalability of database servers, and Oracle DBMS replicate this try out we are hoping that when studying this selection of papers the readers can have a good suggestion approximately a few vital study and technological matters in excessive functionality computing. we want to provide our due to the NATO clinical and Environmental Affairs department for being the primary sponsor for the Workshop. additionally we're happy to recognize different associations and firms that supported the Workshop: eu Union: eu fee DGIII-Industry, CNR: nationwide study Council of Italy, college of Calabria, Alenia Spazio, Centro Italiano Ricerche Aerospaziali, ENEA: Italian nationwide organization for brand spanking new know-how, power and the surroundings, Fujitsu, Hewlett Packard-Convex, Hitachi, NEC, Oracle, and Silicon Graphics-Cray learn.

Backup & Recovery: Inexpensive Backup Solutions for Open Systems

Choked with sensible, freely to be had backup and restoration strategies for Unix, Linux, home windows, and Mac OS X structures -- in addition to numerous databases -- this new consultant is a whole overhaul of Unix Backup & restoration by way of an identical writer, now revised and extended with over seventy five% new material.

Backup & restoration starts off with a whole evaluation of backup philosophy and layout, together with the elemental backup utilities of tar, unload, cpio, ntbackup, ditto, and rsync. It then explains a number of open resource backup items that automate backups utilizing these utilities, together with AMANDA, Bacula, BackupPC, rdiff-backup, and rsnapshot. Backup & restoration then explains the best way to practice naked steel restoration of AIX, HP-UX, Linux, Mac OS, Solaris, VMWare, & home windows platforms utilizing freely-available utilities. The publication additionally offers overviews of the present country of the industrial backup software program and industry, together with overviews of CDP, info De-duplication, D2D2T, and VTL know-how. ultimately, it covers the right way to automate the backups of DB2, trade, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQL-Server, and Sybase databases - with out buying a advertisement backup product to do so.

For environments of all sizes and budgets, this distinctive booklet indicates you ways to make sure information safety with no resorting to dear advertisement recommendations. you'll soon research to:

Automate the backup of well known databases with no advertisement utility

practice naked steel restoration of any well known open platforms platform, together with your laptop or laptop

make the most of precious yet usually unknown open resource backup products

comprehend the kingdom of industrial backup software program, together with causes of CDP and knowledge de-duplication software

entry the present nation of backup undefined, together with digital Tape Libraries (VTLs)

Introduction to Cryptography with Coding Theory (2nd Edition)

With its conversational tone and sensible concentration, this article mixes utilized and theoretical facets for an exceptional advent to cryptography and defense, together with the newest major developments within the box. Assumes a minimum historical past. the extent of math sophistication is such as a direction in linear algebra.

High-Performance Big-Data Analytics: Computing Systems and Approaches

This booklet provides an in depth evaluation of high-performance computing infrastructures for next-generation substantial info and speedy info analytics. beneficial properties: comprises case experiences and studying actions in the course of the publication and self-study workouts in each bankruptcy; offers particular case stories on social media analytics for clever companies and on monstrous facts analytics (BDA) within the healthcare region; describes the community infrastructure standards for powerful move of massive facts, and the garage infrastructurerequirements of purposes which generate large facts; examines real-time analytics strategies; introduces in-database processing and in-memory analytics ideas for info mining; discusses using mainframes for dealing with real-time tremendous information and the newest forms of info administration structures for BDA; presents info at the use of cluster, grid and cloud computing structures for BDA; experiences the peer-to-peer suggestions and instruments and the typical info visualization suggestions, utilized in BDA.

Sample text

These machines have been shown to have low remote memory accesses for standard benchmark database workloads [2]. The impact of remote accesses can also be hidden behind local computation and memory accesses. This can either be done with the help of the application and compiler to schedule remote memory accesses much before they are needed or by overlapping it with computation using multi-threading [21] [22]. The main advantage of a NUMA architecture is that by providing a shared-memory image of a distributed memory MPP, it reduces the latency of data access and improves the ease of load-balancing, compared to an MPP.
