Dear Kontext newsletter subscribers, I hope you are doing well. This week's newsletter will feature some articles about Azure, Google Cloud, Spark, .NET, Teradata, etc.
If you have missed out our previous newsletters, you can find them here.
Microsoft Azure provides a number of data analytics related products and services. It allows users to tailor the solutions to meet different requirements, for example, architecture for modern data warehouse, advanced analytics with big data or real time analytics.
When designing the architecture of Kontext platform, Azure SQL Database is chosen as the storage for relational data. TDE and other advanced security features are always enabled to protect the database. Backup plans are also employed to ensure I can always restore the database for as point of time for disaster recovery.
This series collects commonly used SQL queries to retrieve data from Teradata database. It also shows you how to do some basic filters and transformation using SQL statements.
This article talks about reading JSON file from Google Cloud Storage (GCS) directly. You can use similar APIs to read XML or other file format in GCS as data frame in Spark.
System.Drawing package is added back to .NET 5 though it is only supported on Windows machines. It provides common GDI+ graphics to draw images: System.Drawing.Bitmap, System.Drawing.BitmapData, System.Drawing.Brush, System.Drawing.Font, System.Drawing.Graphics, System.Drawing.Icon and etc.
Columns are like blogs which can be used to publish articles on Kontext. Follow three steps to create your columns.
If you have a question about data, programming and cloud computing, you can post it on our Forums.
