In interpreted languages, it just takes longer to get stuff done - I earlier gave the example where the Python source code a = b + c would result in a BINARY_ADD byte code which takes 78 machine instructions to do the add, but it's a single native ADD instruction if run in compiled language like C or C++. How can we speed this up? Or as the performance expert would say, how do I decrease...
In-memory computing has become an irreversible trend in big data technology, for which the wide popularity of Spark provides a good evidence. Meanwhile, memory storage and management for large data sets are still posing challenges. Out of numerous solutions, Tachyon, a memory-centric distributed storage, well solves the problems faced by many application scenarios. For example, it avoids severe...
