Devops: A Software Architect's Perspective (Addison Wesley)
Wednesday 29 Jul
DevOps promises to accelerate the release of new software features and improve monitoring of systems in production, but its crucial implications for software architects and architecture are often ignored. Here three leading architects address these issues head-on and review the decisions software architects must make in order to achieve DevOps’ goals. They also provide the organizational, technical, and operational context needed to deploy DevOps more efficiently, and review DevOps’ impact on each development phase.
Hadoop Security (O'Reilly)
Monday 27 Jul
As more corporations turn to Hadoop to store and process their most valuable data, the risk of a potential breach of those systems increases exponentially. Authors Ben Spivey and Joey Echeverria provide in-depth information about the security features available in Hadoop, and organize them according to common computer security concepts. With real-world examples thet demonstrate how to protect Hadoop data from unauthorized access and also show how to limit the ability of an attacker to corrupt or modify data in the event of a security breach.
