This two-day seminar is designed to give the student a firm conceptual understanding of the goals and techniques that are used in data warehousing. The seminar explains the concepts and techniques in plain English, and strips away all of the marketing hype to give the student a clear understanding of how to construct a data warehouse using the new technologies. The seminar begins with a historical review of data warehousing and explains the basic construction techniques for data warehousing and contrasts them with traditional online teleprocessing systems....
This is a practical guide for developers working with the Oracle Data Provider for .NET (ODP.NET) using VB.NET. From introducing ODP.NET and programming with ODP.NET to application development using ODP.NET and on to discussing Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2005, this book covers the important aspects of ODP.NET. The book is written for professional .NET developers who need to work with and take full advantage of Oracle Database 10g using Visual Studio 2005. Developers are expected to be familiar with Visual Basic.NET 2005 and have minimum knowledge of Oracle SQL and PL/SQL....
Managing Time in Relational Databases shows how to make the rich information content of bi-temporal data available to business users, while simplifying the design, maintenance and retrieval of that data. Metadata declarations eliminate the need to directly model temporal data. Temporal data maintenance is isolated in code that can be invoked to update bi-temporal data in any database and from any application program, across the enterprise. Anyone who can write queries against conventional data will be able to write queries against the bi-temporal data structures described in this book....
Effective data presentation is an essential skill for anybody wishing to display or publish research results, but when done badly, it can convey a misleading or confusing message. This new addition to the popular “How to” series explains how to present data in journal articles, grant applications or research presentations clearly, accurately and logically, increasing the chances of successful publication.
After completing this lesson, you should be able to do the following:
Describe the factors that affect planned and unplanned downtime
Describe the basic components of Oracle Data Guard
Explain the differences between physical and logical standby databases
Explain the benefits of creating a Data Guard environment
Explain the use of Data Guard in high-availability architectures
The data center is home to the computational power, storage, and applications necessary to support an enterprise business. The data center infrastructure is central to the IT architecture, from which all content is sourced or passes through. Proper planning of the data center infrastructure design is critical, and
performance, resiliency, and scalability need to be carefully considered.
Cisco Data Center Infrastructure Design Guide 2.1 Release Notes. This Release Note highlights the changes in Versions 1, 2 and 2.1 of this guide, and describes the
hardware and software components that have been validated for each version.
This publication provides solution guidelines for enterprises implementing Data Centers with Cisco
devices. The intended audiences for this design guide include network architects, network managers, and
others concerned with the implementation of secure Data Center solutions, including:
• Cisco sales and support engineers
• Cisco partners
• Cisco customers
This book is intended for Information Technology (IT) professionals who
have been hearing about or have been tasked to evaluate, learn or
implement data warehousing technologies.
Far from being just a passing fad, data warehousing technology has grown
much in scale and reputation in the past few years, as evidenced by the
increasing number of products, vendors, organizations, and yes, even
books, devoted to the subject. Enterprises that have successfully
implemented data warehouses find it strategic and often wonder how they
ever managed to survive without it in the past....
AEbook Revit Architecture 2010 helps you explore early design concepts and forms, and more accurately maintain your vision through design, documentation, and construction. Make a change, and it’s automatically updated across the project. Use the essential building information modeling (BIM) data that Autodesk Revit Architecture software provides to support sustainable design, clash detection, construction planning, and fabrication.

Computer organization and architecture Ninth edition - William Stallings is the good book for undergraduates and professionals in computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering courses, learn the fundamentals of processor and computer design from the newest edition of this award-winning text.
Data communications and networking are changing the way we do business and the way
we live. Business decisions have to be made ever more quickly, and the decision makers
require immediate access to accurate information. Why wait a week for that report
from Germany to arrive by mail when it could appear almost instantaneously through
computer networks? Businesses today rely on computer networks and internetworks.
Architecture is those attributes visible to the
Instruction set, number of bits used for data
representation, I/O mechanisms, addressing
e.g. Is there a multiply instruction?
Organization is how features are implemented
Control signals, interfaces, memory technology.
e.g. Is there a hardware multiply unit or is it done by
This document offers guidelines and best practices for implementing Wide Area Application Services
(WAAS) in enterprise data center architecture. Placement of the Cisco Wide Area Engine (WAE), high
availability, and performance are discussed for enterprise data center architectures to form a baseline for
considering a WAAS implementation.
Our goal in writing this book is to expose the inner workings of the modern
digital computer at a level that demystifies what goes on inside the machine.
The only prerequisite to
Principles of Computer Architecture
is a working
knowledge of a high-level programming language. The breadth of material has
been chosen to cover topics normally found in a first course in computer
architecture or computer organization. The breadth and depth of coverage
have been steered to also place the beginning student on a solid track for continuing
studies in computer related disciplines....
The role of Database Administrator (DBA) has become a key to success in
today’s highly complex database systems. The best DBAs work behind the
scenes, but are in the spotlight when critical issues arise. They plan, create,
and maintain databases to ensure that the databases meet the data manage-
ment needs of the business. DBAs also monitor the databases for perfor-
mance issues and work to prevent unscheduled downtime. Being an effective
DBA requires a broad understanding of the architecture of Oracle databases
and expertise in solving system-related problems.
A USB system consists of a host computer, one or more USB devices, and a physical bus. The host consists of two layers: an upper software layer, which includes USB device drivers, and a host controller hardware layer, also known as an adapter layer. The main responsibility of the host computer is to control data transfers to and from USB devices. USB devices are peripherals that use the USB electrical and data format specifications to communicate with the host computer. The physical bus is the set of USB cables that links the controller with the peripherals....
A virtual instruction set architecture (V-ISA) implemented via a processor-specific software translation layer can provide great flexibility to processor designers. Recent examples such as Crusoe and DAISY, however, have used existing hardware instruction sets as virtual ISAs, which complicates translation and optimization. In fact, there has been little research on specific designs for a virtual ISA for processors. This paper proposes a novel virtual ISA (LLVA) and a translation strategy for implementing it on arbitrary hardware.
