I love log data. I did a lot of log analysis early in my career. I see a lot of value added context when you combine parsing log data and allow for rollups and drilldowns. Obviously, not every database schema can deal with the volume, the structure and the ‘unknowns’. I just think that before […]
I have played with Hadoop quite a bit, and especially Docker, HyperV. I have built thousands of VMs over the years. Yes. I focus on data. But I play with a lot of other tools. I mastered Enterprise ETL back in 2000 when I started combining dozens of business sources.
