CodeFutures’ Cory Isaacson Releases New Book

Isaacson’s second book focuses on applying agile data scalability to modern database management systems

CodeFutures, a provider of agile Big Data technologies, on Tuesday announced the release of Cory Isaacson's newest book, "Understanding Big Data Scalability." Isaacson is the CEO/CTO for CodeFutures and an industry-leading innovator of data management software. "Understanding Big Data Scalability" focuses on how to apply Big Data scalability to common applications with the wide selection of database management system engines available today.

"We're very excited about this opportunity to introduce a whole new perspective to Big Data," Isaacson said. "'Understanding Big Data Scalability' is the next step in how we approach data management moving forward. As the sheer amount of data continues to grow exponentially in today's applications, taking an agile, scalable approach to the data tier is a step that simply must be taken."

Big Data management is a challenge that will only continue to become more important. But rather than taking a traditional approach to data management and modeling, Isaacson decided to look at the problem from a different angle, resulting in AgilData, a new Big Data platform designed to remove the complexity and limitations of current databases by leveraging high performance stream processing and dynamic, real-time views. Now, on the heels of this game-changing innovation, "Understanding Big Data Scalability" offers a fresh look at how big data management is changing and how to adapt to those changes. This book, the first in a series, provides the fundamentals of today's Big Data scalability solutions. This foundation is vital for application and database architects, empowering them to cut through marketing hype and truly understand how to best conquer their own Big Data challenges.

"Understanding Big Data Scalability" is available as an eBook, published by Prentice Hall. Isaacson previously authored "Software Pipelines and SOA: Releasing the Power of Multi-Core Processing," which was also released as an eBook in 2009.
