Skizze: A Probabilistic Data Structure Service and Storage

 Skizze ([ˈskɪt͡sə]: german for sketch) is a sketch data store to deal with all problems around counting and sketching using probabilistic data-structures.

Unlike a Key-Value store, Skizze does not store values, but rather appends values to defined sketches, allowing one to solve frequency and cardinality queries in near O(1) time, with minimal memory footprint.

Current status ==> Alpha (tagged v0.0.2)

Motivation

Statistical analysis and mining of huge multi-terabyte data sets is a common task nowadays, especially in areas like web analytics and Internet advertising. Analysis of such large data sets often requires powerful distributed data stores like Hadoop and heavy data processing with techniques like MapReduce. This approach often leads to heavyweight high-latency analytical processes and poor applicability to realtime use cases. On the other hand, when one is interested only in simple additive metrics like total page views or average price of conversion, it is obvious that raw data can be efficiently summarized, for example, on a daily basis or using simple in-stream counters. Computation of more advanced metrics like a number of unique visitor or most frequent items is more challenging and requires a lot of resources if implemented straightforwardly.

Skizze is a (fire and forget) service that provides a probabilistic data structures (sketches) storage that allows estimation of these and many other metrics, with a trade off in precision of the estimations for the memory consumption. These data structures can be used both as temporary data accumulators in query processing procedures and, perhaps more important, as a compact – sometimes astonishingly compact – replacement of raw data in stream-based computing.

Example use cases (queries)

  • How many distinct elements are in the data set (i.e. what is the cardinality of the data set)?
  • What are the most frequent elements (the terms “heavy hitters” and “top-k elements” are also used)?
  • What are the frequencies of the most frequent elements?
  • How many elements belong to the specified range (range query, in SQL it looks like SELECT count(v) WHERE v >= c1 AND v < c2)?
  • Does the data set contain a particular element (membership query)?

How to build and run

make dist
./bin/skizze

Bindings

Two bindings are currently available:

Go

Node.js

Example usage:

Skizze comes with a CLI to help test and explore the server. It can be run via

./bin/skizze-cli

Commands

Create a new Domain (Collection of Sketches):

#CREATE DOM $name $estCardinality $topk
CREATE DOM demostream 10000000 100

Add values to the domain:

#ADD DOM $name $value1, $value2 ....
ADD DOM demostream zod joker grod zod zod grod

Get the cardinality of the domain:

# GET CARD $name
GET CARD demostream

# returns:
# Cardinality: 9

Get the rankings of the domain:

# GET RANK $name
GET RANK demostream

# returns:
# Rank: 1      Value: zod      Hits: 3
# Rank: 2      Value: grod      Hits: 2
# Rank: 3      Value: joker      Hits: 1

Get the frequencies of values in the domain:

# GET FREQ $name $value1 $value2 ...
GET FREQ demostream zod joker batman grod

# returns
# Value: zod      Hits: 3
# Value: joker      Hits: 1
# Value: batman      Hits: 0
# Value: grod      Hits: 2

Get the membership of values in the domain:

# GET MEMB $name $value1 $value2 ...
GET MEMB demostream zod joker batman grod

# returns
# Value: zod      Member: true
# Value: joker      Member: true
# Value: batman      Member: false
# Value: grod      Member: true

List all available sketches (created by domains):

LIST

# returns
# Name: demostream  Type: CARD
# Name: demostream  Type: FREQ
# Name: demostream  Type: MEMB
# Name: demostream  Type: RANK

Create a new sketch of type $type (CARD, MEMB, FREQ or RANK):

# CREATE CARD $name
CREATE CARD demosketch

Add values to the sketch of type $type (CARD, MEMB, FREQ or RANK):

#ADD $type $name $value1, $value2 ....
ADD CARD demostream zod joker grod zod zod grod

Your Data Architecture: Simple Best Practices for Your Data Strategy

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you should probably think about your data architecture and possible best practices.

If you accumulate data on which you base your decision-making as an organization, you most probably need to think about your data architecture and consider possible best practices. Gaining a competitive edge, remaining customer-centric to the greatest extent possible, and streamlining processes to get on-the-button outcomes can all be traced back to an organization’s capacity to build a future-ready data architecture.

In what follows, we offer a short overview of the overarching capabilities of data architecture. These include user-centricity, elasticity, robustness, and the capacity to ensure the seamless flow of data at all times. Added to these are automation enablement, plus security and data governance considerations. These points from our checklist for what we perceive to be an anticipatory analytics ecosystem.

Getting Started With Data Lakes

Frameworks for Efficient Enterprise Analytics

The opportunities big data offers also come with very real challenges that many organizations are facing today. Often, it’s finding the most cost-effective, scalable way to store and process boundless volumes of data in multiple formats that come from a growing number of sources. Then organizations need the analytical capabilities and flexibility to turn this data into insights that can meet their specific business objectives.

This Refcard dives into how a data lake helps tackle these challenges at both ends — from its enhanced architecture that’s designed for efficient data ingestion, storage, and management to its advanced analytics functionality and performance flexibility. You’ll also explore key benefits and common use cases.

Introduction

As technology continues to evolve with new data sources, such as IoT sensors and social media churning out large volumes of data, there has never been a better time to discuss the possibilities and challenges of managing such data for varying analytical insights. In this Refcard, we dig deep into how data lakes solve the problem of storing and processing enormous amounts of data. While doing so, we also explore the benefits of data lakes, their use cases, and how they differ from data warehouses (DWHs).


This is a preview of the Getting Started With Data Lakes Refcard. To read the entire Refcard, please download the PDF from the link above.

Azure Data Catalog: A Quick Introduction to Data Handling Service Around

What is Azure Data Catalog?

Azure Data Catalog is a Data Catalog cloud service of Microsoft using a crowdsourced approach. It provides an inventory of data used for discovering and understanding the data sources. Microsoft Azure is a Software as a Service (SaaS) application.

Azure Data Catalog enhances old investments’ performance, adding metadata and notation around the Azure environment’s data. It informs about the Data sources which we have discovered or which we already have. It expresses documentation and describes the schema of the data source. The data source location and a copy of the metadata are present in the Azure Data Catalog. The user can access it easily when needed, and the indexing of metadata helps discover data through a search.### What is Azure Data Catalog?
