Intro to Redis Cluster Sharding โ€“ Advantages, Limitations, Deploying & Client Connections

Intro to Redis Cluster Sharding – Advantages, Limitations, Deploying & Client Connections

Redis Cluster is the native sharding implementation available within Redis that allows you to automatically distribute your data across multiple nodes without having to rely on external tools and utilities. At ScaleGrid, we recently added support for Redis Clusters on our platform through our fully managed Redis hosting plans. In this post, we’re going to introduce you to the advanced Redis Cluster sharding opportunities, discuss its advantages and limitations, when you should deploy, and how to connect to your Redis Cluster.

Stuff The Internet Says On Scalability For February 15th, 2019

Wake up! It's HighScalability time:

 

Opportunity crossed over the rainbow bridge after 15 years of loyal service. "Our beloved Opportunity remains silent." 

 

Do you like this sort of Stuff? I'd greatly appreciate your support on Patreon. Know anyone who needs cloud? I wrote Explain the Cloud Like I'm 10 just for them. It has 39 mostly 5 star reviews. They'll learn a lot and love you forever.

 

  • 200 million: per day YouTube videos recommended on home page; $9.3 billion: 27% increase in AI funding; 70%: Microsoft security bugs are memory safety issues; 11: new version of Perl; 24%: serverless users are new to cloud computing; 1 million: SpaceX satellite uplinks; $500K: ticket to mars; $13 billion: Google's new datacenter construction; 59%: increase in Tesla Autosteer accidents; $.30: reddit per user revenue; 38%: Airbnb bugs preventable by using types; 60K: data breaches reported since GDPR; 350: theoretical max rock stone skips;

  • Quoteable Quotes:
    • @gchaslot: Brian's hyper-engagement slowly biases YouTube: 1/ People who spend their lives on YT affect recommendations more 2/ So the content they watch gets more views 3/ Then youtubers notice and create more of it 4/ And people spend even more time on that content. And back at 1. This vicious circle was also observed with http://tay.ai , and it explains why the bot became racist in less than 24 hours. Example of YT vicious circle: two years ago I found out that many conspiracies were promoted by the AI much more than truth, for instance flat earth videos were promoted ~10x more than round earth ones ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿคฏ I was not the only one to notice AI harms. @tristanharris talked about addiction. @zeynep talked about radicalization. @noUpside, political abuse and conspiracies. @jamesbridle, disgusting kids videos. @google's @fchollet, the danger of AI propaganda. There are 2 ways to fix vicious circles like with "flat earth" 1) make people spend more time on round earth videos 2) change the AI YouTube’s economic incentive is for solution 1). After 13 years, YouTube made the historic choice to go towards 2) Will this fix work?
    • crazyforbytes: Does anyone else not feel so good about a future of computing where everything but the application layer is rented from Jeff Bezos?

Stuff The Internet Says On Scalability For February 8th, 2019

Wake up! It's HighScalability time:

 

Change is always changing. What will the next 5 years look like?

 

Do you like this sort of Stuff? I'd greatly appreciate your support on Patreon. Know anyone who needs cloud? I wrote Explain the Cloud Like I'm 10 just for them. It has 35 mostly 5 star reviews. They'll learn a lot and love you forever.

 

  • 16,000: Chrome bugs found with ClusterFuzz;  $2,000,000: for Apple iOS remote jailbreak; $1 million: think twice when profiting from a bug; 0: clicks to over the air explotation of Marvell Avastar Wi Fi; $300: cost for a bounty hunter to track your phone's location; 321M: Twitter MAUs; 3: years of falling smartphone shipments; 50%: new development uses microservices; 8 inches: big difference in cell phone radiation; ...
  • Quoteable Quotes:
    • @pczarkowski: As I keep telling people, if you have a kubernetes strategy you've already failed. Kubernetes should be an implementation detail at the tactical level to deal with the strategic imperative of solving the problems that are halting the flow of money.
    • EFF: EU countries that do not have zero rating practices enjoyed a double digit drop in the price of wireless data after a year. In comparison, the countries with prevalent zero rating practices from their wireless carriers consistently saw data prices increase. 
    • @samred: Jorgensen didn't mince words: he blamed the drop in the [EA] series' uptake by the developers' focus on a single-player campaign, as opposed to having a promised battle royale mode ready for fans in time for the game's launch.
    • Newzoo: The games market took more than 35 years to grow to a $35 billion business in 2007. This year, that same market is expected to generate $137.9 billion in revenues. In only 11 years, an astounding $100 billion of additional value was created.
    • Mark Fontecchio: we find that more companies are turning to HR software and the data it contains for strategic insights. According to 451 Research’s Voice of the Enterprise: Data & Analytics, 28% of businesses run analytics on their employee behavior data, roughly the same number that analyze IT infrastructure data.
    • Anonymous: it’s hard to compete with the sheer quantity of data that tech firms have, or the scale of their integration into people’s lives. Retail investors have to put their money somewhere. They’re currently putting it into traditional financial firms. But there’s no reason that Google and Facebook shouldn’t be accepting deposits, facilitating payments, making loans, managing assets, running quantitative investment funds.
    • Legogris: Having used ECS quite a bit, I do not recommend anyone building a new stack based on it. Kubernetes solves everything ECS solves, but usually better and without sveral of the issues mentioned here. Last time I checked, AWS was still lagging behind Azure and GCP on Kubernetes, but I have a strong feeling they're prioritizing improving EKS over ECS.

Stuff The Internet Says On Scalability For February 1st, 2019

Wake up! It's HighScalability time:

 

Memory module for the Apollo Guidance Computer (Mike Stewart). The AGC weighed 70 pounds and had 2048 words of RAM in erasable core memory and 36,864 words of ROM in core rope memory. It flew to the moon.

 

Do you like this sort of Stuff? Please go to Patreon and do what comes natural. Need cloud? Stand under Explain the Cloud Like I'm 10 (35 nearly 5 star reviews).

 

  • $10.9B: Apple's Q1 services revenue;  5 million: homes on Airbnb; 2.5-5%: base64 gzipped files close to original; 60MB/s: Dropbox per Kafka broker throughput limit; 12%: Microsoft's increased revenues; 9: new datasets; 900 million: installed iPhones; $5.7B: 2018 game investment; way down: chip growth; 

  • Quotable Quotes:
    • Daniel Lemire: Most importantly, I claim that most people do not care whether they work on important problems or not. My experience is that more than half of researchers are not even trying to produce something useful. They are trying to publish, to get jobs and promotions, to secure grants and so forth, but advancing science is a secondary concern.
    • @da_667: The moral of the story here is that the cloud is NOT revolutionary. There are TRADEOFFS YOU HAVE TO CONSIDER. Glacier is cheap because it isn't "always ready" storage. and if/when you REALLY need the data, you're gonna be waiting a long time.
    • @ludovicc: We spent many years to remove stored procedures and put business logic in an application server, why do you want to go back to that? Nice idea for fast prototyping though.
    • Robert Graham: The most important rule of cybersecurity is that it depends upon the risks/costs. That means if what you want to do is write down the procedures for operating a garden pump, including the passwords, then that's fine. This is because there's not much danger of hackers exploiting this. On the other hand, if the question is passwords for the association's bank account, then DON'T DO THIS.
    • @rbranson: We use SQLite mounted on a shared volume in WAL mode, which uses a shared memory segment. Works great.
    • Fewer quotes than usual this week. People must have been too cold...

A Hybrid Cloud Approach from FraudGuard.io that Handles 50M Requests a Day

This is a guest post from Ryan Averill at FraudGuard.io.

At FraudGuard.io we are a team of just a few developers; all working with our customers to try to make their applications as safe as possible. We have been working on FraudGuard for about 3 years and we’ve had paying customers for more than 2 years now. The main idea behind FraudGuard is for us to get attacked so you don’t have to. In other words; reduce the overall number of attacks your application receives each day by leveraging our threat data. We do this by by taking our attack data from our network of honeypots and share that data via API direct to you. Instead of some businesses just running services like Maxmind, that update occasionally, we actually run the entire process in house so we can immediately share real-time attack data from around the world....

Stuff The Internet Says On Scalability For January 25th, 2019

Wake up! It's HighScalability time:

 

My god, it's full of synapses! (3D map of a fly's brain)

 

Do you like this sort of Stuff? Please go to Patreon and do what comes natural. Need cloud? Stand under Explain the Cloud Like I'm 10 (35 nearly 5 star reviews).

 

  • 10%: Netflix captured screen time in US; 8.3 million: concurrent Fortnite players;  773 Million: Record "Collection #1" Data Breach; 284M+: Reddit monthly views; 1 billion: people impacted by data breaches; 1st: seed germinated on the moon; 4x: k8s api growth from v1 to v1.4; 7x: faster PyPy python; 9B: gallons of water/day for lawns; 2.6 terabytes: largest data leak in history; $14B: serverless market by 2024; 100 million: Alexas sold; 51%: mobile games share of global market; 160 TB: total data transfer during re:Invent 2018; 100+ million: stackoverflow users; 40%: increase in median data usage; 3%: drop in Comcast's network spending; 1 billion: tweets about gaming in 2018; 53%: investment of Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent in China's 190 major AI companies; 104,954: hard drives used by Backblaze to store 750 petabytes of data; 9,100: IBM US patents; 1.4bn: active Apple devices; 

  • Quoteable Quotes:
    • Vincent Deluard: If technology is everywhere, the tech sector no longer exists. If the tech sector no longer exists, its premium is no longer justified. 
    • Brenon Daly: There’s a new exit off Sand Hill Road that’s proving increasingly popular for startups. Rather than following the well-worn path that leads into another venture portfolio, startups are taking an unexpected turn into private equity (PE) holdings at a record rate. For the first time in history, a VC-backed startup in 2018 was more likely to sell to a PE buyer than a fellow VC-backed company
    • Jason Lee:  tech stocks really do look like goners. Publicly traded companies that are classified as “tech” now trade at one of the smallest premiums in history, according to a recent JP Morgan analyst note. The most famous of these companies—the so-called faangs, of Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Google—have seen their price-earnings ratios collapse by more than 60 percent in the past two years
    • Rob Pike (1984): A collection of impressions after doing a week’s work (rather than demo reception) at PARC. Enough is known about the good stuff at PARC that I will concentrate on the bad stuff. The following may therefore leave too negative an impression, and I apologize. Nonetheless...A few years ago, PARC probably had most of the good ideas. But I don’t think they ran far enough with them, and they didn’t take in enough new ones. The Smalltalk group is astonishingly insular, almost childlike, but is just now opening up, looking at other systems with open-eyed curiosity and fascination. The people there are absorbing much, and I think the next generation of Smalltalk will be much more modern, something I would find always comfortable. However, it will probably be another model Earth. 
    • Sascha Segan: The processor in the Samsung Galaxy S10 performs better than the latest iPhones on most measures.
    • George Dyson: The next revolution will be the rise of analog systems that can no longer be mastered by digital programming. For those who sought to control nature through programmable machines, it responds by allowing us to build machines whose nature is that they can no longer be controlled by programs.
    • @TServerless: We sat with a solution architect, apparently they are aware of the latency issue and suggested to ditch api gw and build our own solution. Right now api gw is good enough for our poc, but definitely not for our production load. I'll be more than happy to talk about it in person
    • Rajesh Menon: If machines are going to be seeing these images and video more than humans, then why don’t we think about redesigning the cameras purely for machines? ... Because like a fly’s eye, what matters in the AI world isn’t so much the high-quality of a single data source but rather the proliferation of data sources
