Ce livre est centré sur l'univers du Cloud Computing d'entreprise et de l'Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) avec la solution open-source OpenStack. Il est avant tout destiné à une audience spécialisée en IT (du débutant à l'expert) souhaitant avoir une vision large du monde du cloud computing illustrée par la construction détaillée et les modalités d'installation d'une IaaS basée sur OpenStack. Il s'adresse également, dans ses chapitres plus généralistes, à un public orienté métier (direction générale, marketing, direction financière, direction de production.) qui souhaite comprendre les enjeux de la transformation profonde de l'IT imposée par le cloud et par l'automatisation de la production de services applicatifs. L'auteur a choisi une approche mixant théorie et pratique dans une démarche progressive permettant de réunir le meilleur des deux mondes de l'IT : les Devs et les Ops. Les sujets sont présentés avec de nombreux exemples pratiques qui, pour être implémentés, nécessitent des connaissances sur le système Linux et sur les réseaux TCP/IP. Les trois premiers chapitres, généralistes, permettent d'entrer progressivement dans le monde du cloud computing. Le quatrième chapitre est une transition vers les parties plus techniques avec la présentation des composants majeurs de la solution OpenStack. Les chapitres 5 et 6 rentrent au coeur d'OpenStack avec les processus d'installation, d'administration et d'utilisation et sont naturellement suivis d'un chapitre qui explique les différents types d'architectures OpenStack qu'il est possible d'implémenter. Le huitième chapitre redevient plus généraliste en se positionnant sur la présentation des coûts d'un projet IaaS et les trois derniers chapitres font la transition vers le monde du PaaS (Platform as a Service) : construction des catalogues de services, passage du IaaS au PaaS, culture DevOps.

Doing Math with Python shows you how to use Python to delve into high school–level math topics like statistics, geometry, probability, and calculus. You’ll start with simple projects, like a factoring program and a quadratic-equation solver, and then create more complex projects once you’ve gotten the hang of things. Along the way, you’ll discover new ways to explore math and gain valuable programming skills that you’ll use throughout your study of math and computer science. Learn how to: -Describe your data with statistics, and visualize it with line graphs, bar charts, and scatter plots -Explore set theory and probability with programs for coin flips, dicing, and other games of chance -Solve algebra problems using Python’s symbolic math functions -Draw geometric shapes and explore fractals like the Barnsley fern, the Sierpinski triangle, and the Mandelbrot set -Write programs to find derivatives and integrate functions Creative coding challenges and applied examples help you see how you can put your new math and coding skills into practice. You’ll write an inequality solver, plot gravity’s effect on how far a bullet will travel, shuffle a deck of cards, estimate the area of a circle by throwing 100,000 “darts” at a board, explore the relationship between the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio, and more.

Recent achievements in hardware and software development, such as multi-core CPUs and DRAM capacities of multiple terabytes per server, enabled the introduction of a revolutionary technology: in-memory data management. This technology supports the flexible and extremely fast analysis of massive amounts of enterprise data. Professor Hasso Plattner and his research group at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany, have been investigating and teaching the corresponding concepts and their adoption in the software industry for years. This book is based on an online course that was first launched in autumn 2012 with more than 13,000 enrolled students and marked the successful starting point of the openHPI e-learning platform. The course is mainly designed for students of computer science, software engineering, and IT related subjects, but addresses business experts, software developers, technology experts, and IT analysts alike. Plattner and his group focus on exploring the inner mechanics of a column-oriented dictionary-encoded in-memory database. Covered topics include - amongst others - physical data storage and access, basic database operators, compression mechanisms, and parallel join algorithms. Beyond that, implications for future enterprise applications and their development are discussed. Step by step, readers will understand the radical differences and advantages of the new technology over traditional row-oriented, disk-based databases. In this completely revised 2nd edition, we incorporate the feedback of thousands of course participants on openHPI and take into account latest advancements in hard- and software. Improved figures, explanations, and examples further ease the understanding of the concepts presented. We introduce advanced data management techniques such as transparent aggregate caches and provide new showcases that demonstrate the potential of in-memory databases for two diverse industries: retail and life sciences.

Cryptography has been employed in war and diplomacy from the time of Julius Caesar. In our Internet age, cryptography's most widespread application may be for commerce, from protecting the security of electronic transfers to guarding communication from industrial espionage. This accessible introduction for undergraduates explains the cryptographic protocols for achieving privacy of communication and the use of digital signatures for certifying the validity, integrity, and origin of a message, document, or program. Rather than offering a how-to on configuring web browsers and e-mail programs, the author provides a guide to the principles and elementary mathematics underlying modern cryptography, giving readers a look under the hood for security techniques and the reasons they are thought to be secure.
