There was a plethora of terms found when analyzing the job-opening descriptions. For example, Windows' terms include 95, NT, CE, Win, Windows NT, etc. Besides various abbreviations, there are also ambiguous words. Is Win followed by NT to be counted as Windows and Windows NT or just Windows NT alone? Generally, the “maximum munch” rule is used. That is, the longest recognizable term possible is used. Then there are still the misspellings and unknown words. Thus, all this makes determining what is required fuzzy. Having said that, here are some of the statistics used in the job descriptions:
number of job openings: 129,000
number of unique words: 12,200
number of unique skill sets: 68,800
Five most often used words:
frame relay: 445
Oracle dba: 445
C++ Java: 412
WinNT server: 361
Shell script: 361

Free Webinar: Hadoop
How to Build an Optimal Hadoop Cluster to Store and Maintain Unlimited Amounts of Data Using Microservers
Realizing the promise of Apache® Hadoop® requires the effective deployment of compute, memory, storage and networking to achieve optimal results. With its flexibility and multitude of options, it is easy to over or under provision the server infrastructure, resulting in poor performance and high TCO. Join us for an in depth, technical discussion with industry experts from leading Hadoop and server companies who will provide insights into the key considerations for designing and deploying an optimal Hadoop cluster.
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
