Increase a LSI MegaRaid RAID0 array with LVM on top

BIG Data is the new bacon, but to manage the new BIG data driven businesses we need a lot of storage and better than a lot of storage is a lot of super fast storage ;)

To achieve this dream the best solution is a RAID0 (stripping) array with super fast SSD’s. As the storage needs increases with the business, additional disks need to be added to the RAID0 array, making it BIGGER and faster… which is really nice… but not very easy and it may be risky if you mess things up.

SQL Injection. How to prevent it from happening in PHP.

Share

SQL injection as a matter of security can be approached from multiple angles. One must first be sure that the targeted application has a confidential database structure, since this is the main thing that makes SQL injection possible.

Also, it’s important to notice that SQL injection is not something that happens arbitrary or from time to time, it takes place on most known websites. In figure 1 are illustrated the results of a study realized by Ponemon Institute about the intensity at which SQL injection takes place on most websites (year 2013):

Not only that, when null is added, compared to or concatenated with any variable the entire result will become null, but also when given a null parameter most PowerBuilder functions will simply return NULL and perform no action.

What is C3?

C3 [1] is D3js-based reusable chart library. For anyone versed in drawing complex graphs on the web with interaction and animations, there are basically 2 options:

  1. Make a flash application (not so safe, not SEO friendly and requires browser flash plugin working and up to date).
  2. Use a matured animations and charting library. Although there are alternatives (not all of them free) the free and amazing D3js library does it all.

D3js is amazing, but only for someone with high-level programming skills [2] as getting all of its elements to fall into place and show what is needed and in the expected manner will definitely take a lot of skill, creativity and time. And while it comes with a lot of free templates that can be adapted with relative ease, it can still be quite hard to use and integrate.

Why Practise Pairing Testing

Testing a new product, feature software or anything IT related, can, at some point, become a bit repetitive. Sometimes looking at the same line, entry, button, etc. can cause you to miss some things or not be able to see anything new. This is why pairing testing can prove to be a very useful testing method since, as the saying goes, two heads (or more) are better than one.
