Reddit: Is mongodb database ACID compliant enough for Inventory/CRM/Accounting systems of small businesses?

Friday 10th of June 2016 02:08:30 PM

I'm a programmer but know very less about the DBA level intricacies of databases. I want to understand the trade-off that one makes to achieve a better performance of mongodb against the robustness of traditional sql databases like mysql/postgresql?

If I were to implement an Accounting/CRM/Inventory system (or even an eCommerce system), how will this ACID compliance of MongoDB affect the correctness of data in each case.

I want to understand that if mongodb was lacking in ACID compliance in any way, why is it so popular choice today among lots of developers?

LXer: How Bitcoin’s Blockchain tech could aid IoT interoperability

Friday 10th of June 2016 01:34:37 PM
Blockchain technology’s qualities of universality and security could be applied to the IoT messaging protocol problem, said Benedikt Herudek at OpenIoT Summit. One of the main themes of this year’s Embedded Linux Conference and OpenIoT Summit was the challenge of bridging the growing number of Internet of Things (IoT) standards.

LXer: Securing the server programs hiding in your Docker containers

Friday 10th of June 2016 12:37:26 PM
People worry about how secure containers are to outside attackers. That's a legitimate fear. I think what's even more of a concern is whether the application within your container is secure, or if it's really what you think it is.

  • OnePlus 3 Camera Samples Released; Smartphone Leaked in Numerous Images

    There is little left to the imagination when it comes to the OnePlus 3. The smartphone has been subjected to numerous leaks ahead of its June 14 unveil, and now, we get treated with camera samples, and some leaked pricing details.

    After releasing camera samples a few days ago, OnePlus has released more images to show what the OnePlus 3 camera can do. The four images are stunning; capturing movement, depth of field, and colours adeptly.


    The company in the meanwhile has also released the kernel and device tree of OxygenOS to the community for further development.

  • No Oxygen Open Source — Personal Apology Regarding Misreporting

    Yesterday, we pushed out an article where we claimed that OnePlus had open sourced OxygenOS. The basis of our claim was the recent activity on OnePlus’s github. Based on the information that we had on hand at that exact moment, and a precursory look at the code that indicated a lot of code pulled over from CAF, we wrongly concluded that OnePlus had open sourced part of OxygenOS.

    What happened in fact was that OnePlus released the device tree and some HALs for the OnePlus 2. This is still big news by itself, as it will be of great use for 3rd party development efforts on the OnePlus 2. However, it is not in any way related to OnePlus open sourcing their OS.

  • open source modular design: the business benefits

    Open source hardware, as defined by the Open source Hardware Association, lowers the barriers to innovation by making reuse and redesign explicitly allowed from day one, without needing to involve a lawyer. You are explicitly allowed to make money from it. That’s expected and encouraged. Open source hardware has one very interesting difference from software. Nobody seriously expects hardware to be free, so the business model for open source hardware is the same as proprietary. People pay for objects.

  • Open access: All human knowledge is there—so why can’t everybody access it?

    He went some way to achieving that goal of providing general access to human knowledge. In 1856, after 20 years of labour as Keeper of Printed Books, he had helped boost the British Museum's collection to over half a million books, making it the largest library in the world at the time. But there was a serious problem: to enjoy the benefits of those volumes, visitors needed to go to the British Museum in London.

    Imagine, for a moment, if it were possible to provide access not just to those books, but to all knowledge for everyone, everywhere—the ultimate realisation of Panizzi's dream. In fact, we don't have to imagine: it is possible today, thanks to the combined technologies of digital texts and the Internet. The former means that we can make as many copies of a work as we want, for vanishingly small cost; the latter provides a way to provide those copies to anyone with an Internet connection. The global rise of low-cost smartphones means that group will soon include even the poorest members of society in every country.

TuxMachines: iTWire shows Linux Australia the right way to host a server

Friday 10th of June 2016 12:26:33 PM

An iTWire article appears to have resulted in Linux Australia seeing the folly of not having proper arrangements in place for hosting its website.

Further, a member of Linux Australia has suggested the office-bearers should resign en masse for not anticipating a breakdown in hosting the organisation's website recently.

Linux Australia secretary, Sae Ra Germaine, posted to the Linux-aus mailing list in April to explain why the organisation experienced server downtime, ultimately because the team charged with managing this task, while recognising a risk of disruption, did not engage with the University hosting the server instead choosing only to liaise with ex-employees, and discontinued searching for a new host between December 2015 and March 2016.

Friday 10th of June 2016 12:15:39 PM

LTFS – the Linear Tape File System – seemed like a great idea when it emerged but not many storage vendors seem to have made much of it. It puts a file system on top of a tape library and turns it into something like a tape-NAS, making it suitable for archive use cases.

  • Open access and Brexit
    The UK research community’s response to the recent referendum – in which a majority of 52% voted for the UK to leave the European Union (or “Brexit”) – has been one of horror and disbelief. This is no surprise, not least because Brexit would have a serious impact on research funding in the UK. Nature reports that UK universities currently get around 16% of their research funding from the EU, and that the UK currently hosts more EU-funded holders of ERC grants than any other member state. Elsewhere, Digital Science has estimated that the UK could lose £1 billion in science funding if the UK government does not make up the shortfall in EU-linked research funds.

Makulu's LinDoz Is a Smooth Windows-Cinnamon Blend

That technical issue aside, The MakuluLinux line is one of my favorites. Unlike typical distros, Makulu strays from some of the mainstream primary applications. It also has a set of the most commonly used software preinstalled regardless of the desktop flavor selected. For example, it uses the WPS office suite. If you fancy the Cinnamon desktop, you will feel right at home with MakuluLinux. If you cut your computing teeth on Microsoft Windows, you will be particularly enamored with the LinDoz Edition.

Hands on with KaOS Linux: Not just another derivative distro

For an application first demonstrated a year ago, GigJam still feels tantalizingly unfinished, with a limited number of services you can connect to, frustrating bugs when connecting to Microsoft's own services, no way to work offline and an interface you're unlikely to figure out without reading the documentation (and even then may find frustrating). It's also a fascinating glimpse into what the Microsoft Graph can unlock. The ability to filter your CRM leads information based on your meetings, or your email based on your unfulfilled orders, or your tasks based on the emails about what you're supposed to be doing -- and share that view with your colleagues -- could make you hugely productive. The ability to see the PowerPoint and the Word document you're going to use in a meeting, along with the emails everyone has had from the people you're meeting with so you know what they care about, could be a great way to prepare for the meeting. And you can do all that without sharing more information than you want (probably). It's a fantastic idea, but Microsoft really needs to improve the execution. Read more
