    Sometimes you need more than words to illustrate a point. Here is Basho's humble attempt to clarify the difference between "Dynamo-Style" systems (like Riak) that use consistent hashing to achieve fault tolerance and prevent data loss, and systems that use techniques like sharding.

            Data Visualisation is a powerful method for analysing and presenting large quantities of information - and with the continued explosion of "big data" tools to help make better sense of the data are a necessity. Over the last year Daden have been looking at how immersive spaces can be used to provide an alternative to the 2D tools which are so common today. The result is the launch of Datascape. Users can visualise and interact with data from almost any source and from any domain including financial, political, technical, scientific, health and social media. Data can be imported from spreadsheets and databases or even taken from live feeds. Datascape’s 3D environment enables a large volume of data to be displayed, whilst still giving access to individual data points and their rich data – which in the Pro version is over 65,000 points and over 10 dimensions of information. There is also a free Community edition which can plot a maximum of 6,000 data points.

Thanks to Nicholas Felton for the inspiration, and Shannon Vaughan for encouraging us, instead of telling us it's ridiculous. ♫ "Army of Assholes" - Jim Guthrie

                IBM serve data insights with these Wimbledon Championships animated infographics. The Wimbledon Championships, or simply Wimbledon, is the oldest tennis tournament in the world. For the last 25 years, IBM has been the official technology partner; their involvement with Wimbledon has gone from strength to strength, collecting, collating, analysing and presenting huge amounts of data from the event in real time. Wimbledon 2014 is no exception; IBM are using analytics to bring millions of data points vividly to life, giving fans around the world much greater insight into the competition and a richer experience during every match. OgilvyOne Worldwide approached our studio to develop content for the IBM #whoknew social media campaign.

                      An installation by Fred Penelle & Yannick Jacquet Exhibition at LUX - Scène nationale de Valence / F 20 DECEMBER 2014 - 7 March 2015 “While the passage of time seems to accelerate every day, Fred Penelle and Yannick Jacquet offer a pause, a suspension, a breath. A strange mechanism stretches across the wall, populated with shadowy chimeras. They are mysterious and yet somehow familiar. Is this a laboratory experiment or the plan for a future network? Minutely constructed like a fine clock, it traces connections, routes, genuinely-false, looping itineraries, inviting escape, inviting dreams. The narrative is deconstructed like a thousand-storied film script. Every effort is made to lead astray, to turn around, to forge ahead. Time is shredded, decomposed, lost…and yet everything references it. Mécaniques Discursives is like a parenthesis between two epochs: Gutenberg’s and Big Data’s. By contrasting the oldest form of image reproduction (woodcutting) with the most recent digital technologies, the installation straddles centuries and contracts time.” www.mecaniques-discursives.net www.antivj.com Mécaniques Discursives short documentary: www.vimeo.com/118994744
