  • Simplify Hybrid Cloud with Dell EMC PowerEdge + VMware

    first_img¹ Principled Technologies Report, sponsored by Dell Technologies, “New VMware vSphere 7.0 features reduced the time and complexity of routine update and hardware compliance tasks”. August 2020 With the explosive growth of data fueling today’s global environment, businesses’ ability to readily adapt is becoming more and more critical for survival, and IT managers are under enormous pressure to deliver applications and services that innovate and transform the business.Regardless of  the size of an organization, cloud computing is a fundamental business enabler that powers everything from email and collaboration tools to mission-critical systems. As cloud technology, and the way businesses use it, has evolved, hybrid cloud models have become a dominant way to balance cloud-dependent functionality with considerations that divide workloads between on-prem computing, enterprise data centers, and public and private clouds.Hybrid clouds have become the norm for many organizations globally, with 92% of organizations having both public and private cloud environments installed, and 90% of modern server environment operators reporting  increased value and effectiveness from hybrid cloud initiatives versus just 62% of those running legacy server shops. Similar to the real-world nature of clouds, which come in various types with different environments, hybrid clouds are also dynamic. Sometimes they must be built quickly and flexibly, sometimes they hang around for a long time, and other times they dissipate quickly. Often the data doesn’t just stay on one of these many clouds, and only 50% of all applications are expected to “stay in place” over the next year.Recently VMware introduced VMware Cloud Foundation 4. VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) is the future-proof hybrid cloud platform for modernizing data centers and deploying modern apps.  VCF is based on VMware’s proven technologies including VMware vSphere with Tanzu (Kubernetes), vSAN, NSX, and vRealize Suite, providing a complete set of software-defined services for compute, storage, networking, security, and cloud management to run enterprise apps – traditional or containerized – across hybrid clouds.Cloud Foundation delivers enterprise agility, reliability, and efficiency for customers seeking to deploy private and hybrid clouds. Cloud Foundation simplifies the hybrid cloud by delivering a single integrated solution that is easy to deploy and operate through built-in automated lifecycle management.Cloud Foundation 4 provides consistent infrastructure and operations from the data center to the cloud and the edge, making VCF an ideal platform for hybrid cloud deployments. It serves as an integrated software platform that automates a complete software-defined data center (SDDC) on a standardized architecture, such as Dell EMC PowerEdge and Dell EMC vSAN Ready Nodes, which are preconfigured, tested, and jointly certified to run vSAN and take the guesswork out of deploying your environment.With Cloud Foundation 4, VMware has enhanced the various software stack components to boost manageability, security and development of modern apps. Such new features in the stack include: enhanced support for modern apps with vSphere with Tanzu, vSphere Lifecycle Manager (vLCM), upgrades in cloud-scale networking and security with NSX, and updated vRealize Suite.The Kubernetes addition, now intrinsic to vSphere 7 with Tanzu, enables VCF Services and application‑focused management for streamlined development, agile operations, and accelerated innovation. With native support for Kubernetes, customers can build, run and manage containers and virtual machines in one environment.vSphere Lifecycle Manager, or vLCM, reduces operational complexity, for day zero- day 2 tasks and reduces the amount of time needed to monitor the environment. It allows 98% less hand-on time and 98% fewer steps when updating an 8-node cluster using vLCM and OMIVV.¹ Before the introduction of vSphere 7 and vLCM, admins often used up to nine tools to manage their VMware environment.Similarly, the VMware vRealize Suite, a multi‑cloud cloud management solution, provides a modern platform for infrastructure automation and consistent operations. vRealize is included with most editions of VCF and ultimately helps with application operations, allowing developers to quickly release, troubleshoot and optimize performance of highly distributed microservice‑based cloud applications.NSX 3 enables cloud-scale networking and security by eliminating infrastructure boundaries across clouds. It delivers true single pane of glass capabilities while providing enhanced constructs for data path multi-tenancy and service chaining. With NSX, customers gain federation capabilities to provide a cloud-like operating model for network operators, enhanced multi-tenancy capabilities and service chaining. Also, NSX distributed IDS/IPS, network intelligence enhancements, security anomaly detection, L7 Edge Firewall enhancements and application templates for micro-segmentation all come together to build additional intrinsic security capabilities for Cloud Foundation. IT departments must have the right x86 server infrastructure plus virtualization software to support traditional and modern apps, with the utmost security and simple manageability. For these needs, more and more customers globally have standardized on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers plus VMware software. Flexibly architect and scale your hybrid cloud environment to transform what’s possible for your business, while empowering IT with intelligent automation, consistent management, and multi-layer security across physical and virtual machines and containers, from the core to the cloud to the edge.To learn more about PowerEdge Servers with VMware Cloud Foundation:Read the Solution Brief or Tolly report that shows how you can deploy your private cloud in days rather than weeks with PowerEdge and VMware Cloud Foundation 4.Visit the PowerEdge and VMware Solution Page.last_img read more

  • Healing Brain Injuries

    first_imgResearchers at the University of Georgia’s Regenerative Bioscience Center have succeeded in reproducing the effects of traumatic brain injury and stimulating recovery in neuron cells grown in a petri dish.This makes them the first known scientific team in the country to do so using stem cell-derived neurons. The procedure, detailed in a new paper in Nature Scientific Reports, has significant implications for the study and treatment of such injuries.Unlike other cells in the body, most neurons in the central nervous system cannot repair or renew themselves. Using glutamate, an agent that is released in high amounts in the brain after traumatic injury, the research team recorded a concussionlike disruption of neural activity in a dish containing dozens of minute electrodes. Through these recordings, they then evaluated the activity and influenced recovery by electrical stimulation.“Once the neurons reach a certain level of density in the dish, you begin to see what we call synchronous activity in a very timed manner,” said lead author Lohitash Karumbaiah, assistant professor in University of Georgia’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Department of Animal and Dairy Science. “Knowing we could recreate synchronized, brainlike activity in a dish gave us the impetus to ask, ‘What if we disrupt this rhythm, and how can we recover from something like that?’”In 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first deep-brain stimulation device — an electrical stimulation cap that patients wear continuously — for treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Karumbaiah and his team hope that electrical stimulation could be a clinically translatable approach for recovery from traumatic brain injury, or TBI. The next step, he said, is to connect with external collaborators to tailor electrical stimulation approaches with biomaterials that can exploit neuroplasticity.Such treatments could be highly beneficial, for example, to veterans. Many veterans suffer from TBIs incurred through shock waves from explosions, with no physical focal point of injury. “Drilling into the brain randomly to access tissue in such cases makes no sense,” said Karumbaiah. “A wearable device that can administer fairly controlled levels of relevant electrical stimulation can help these patients.”One of Karumbaiah’s co-authors is Maysam Ghovanloo, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Ghovanloo has led the development of the Tongue-Drive System, which allows individuals with spinal cord injuries to control their wheelchair or digital devices by moving their tongue. He has also developed technologies for neural interfacing and implantable medical devices. Ghovanloo will put his expertise in medical instrumentation to work in developing devices for the team’s preclinical studies.“We have developed a unique approach for observing and guiding stimulatory patterns in the brain at multiple levels, all the way from individual neurons to the neural tissue, and eventually the entire brain,” Ghovanloo said. “All while taking into account the animal behavior to opportunistically apply stimulation when they are most effective.”According to Karumbaiah and Ghovanloo, electrical stimulation devices, whether designed for implantation or wearable use, must be small and power-efficient. They believe their approach will be clinically practical because smart design and application of stimulatory regimens can significantly reduce power consumption. ““Because we’ve been recording from these neurons for a long time, we know what the magnitude of the pulses or activities of these neurons are,” said Charles-Francois Latchoumane, a postdoctoral researcher in Karumbaiah’s lab. “Now we can mimic those routines by programming them externally and feeding it back into the brain.”For more information about the UGA Regenerative Bioscience Center, visit rbc.uga.edu.last_img read more

  • Sweden’s AMF, AP1 and Folksam buy SEK5bn of new Volvo shares

    first_img“The picture that emerges is impressive,” he said. “Volvo Cars is now a well-run and profitable company with a robust growth strategy and promising prospects.”Volvo Cars has been 100% owned by Chinese private company Geely since it bought the company from Ford Motors in 2010.Some 17,800 of Volvo Cars’ 28,500 staff are based in Sweden, and production focused on premium cars is located in Sweden, Belgium and China.Volvo Cars, whose headquarters is in Gothenburg, Sweden, has been separate from the Volvo Group since 1999.Olof Jonasson, head of equities at AP1, Sweden’s first national pensions buffer fund, said Volvo cars now had modern platforms that were adjusted to produce electric as well as self-driving cars.“As well as this, it has launched a number of exciting partnerships and invested in a more geographically balanced production,” he said. “We believe the future development of Volvo Cars can contribute positively to returns on pensions capital.”Meanwhile, at Folksam, Michael Kjeller, head of the pensions and insurance group’s asset management, said the investment would give customers a good risk-adjusted return, as well as the chance to be owners of a company with a strong link to Swedish industry.“Volvo Cars has a strong profile as far as safety is concerned, and not least from a sustainability perspective,” he said.Folksam said the investment in Volvo Cars preference shares would be divided between its subsidiaries, with SEK450m going to the life and pensions business Folksam Liv, SEK100m to Folksam Sak, the non-life insurance business, and SEK400m going to KPA, its local government pension scheme unit. Three Swedish pension funds – AMF, Folksam and AP1 – have agreed to buy SEK5bn (€514m) of newly issued preference shares in Chinese-owned but traditionally Swedish carmaker Volvo Cars, hoping the issue marks a step on Volvo’s path back to stock market listing.AMF has signed up to buy SEK2.5bn of the new shares – which include the right to have them converted into new ordinary shares in a possible future initial public offering (IPO) – AP1 has agreed to buy SEK1.5bn, and Folksam is to buy SEK1bn of the investments.Anders Oscarsson, equity manager and head of ownership at the SEK550bn pensions provider AMF, said: “We are very excited about this opportunity to be on what will hopefully become Volvo Cars’ journey back to a position as a listed company in the future.”He said the pension fund had recently looked carefully at the company’s development, met with management and examined the firm’s figures and research, as well as its new model programme.last_img read more

  • Nelson Cruz injury update: Red-hot Twins DH (wrist strain) lands on IL at worst time

    first_img Giancarlo Stanton injury update: Yankees slugger ‘moving in the right direction’ Joe Panik signs with surging Mets after Giants release David Price injury update: Red Sox place starter (wrist) on 10-day IL His 16 homers in the second half lead MLB by a wide margin and his season total, a team-leading 32, is second in the American League to only Mike Trout’s 38. Slashing .294/.384/.650, Cruz leads qualified Twins hitters in batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage.But his left wrist has been a persistent issue this season. He spent 15 days on the injured list in late May with a left wrist strain suffered in a swing-and-miss similar to Thursday night’s. An MRI exam at the time didn’t show any structural damage. In his second at-bat, Cruz took a hard swing through a 2-1 fastball from Indians starter Mike Clevinger and immediately grimaced in pain.Manager Rocco Baldelli and assistant trainer Matt Biancuzzo came out to check him and he was removed from the game, with C.J. Cron taking over as the designated hitter. Related News Nelson Cruz, the hottest hitter in the Twins’ lineup if not all of MLB, has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a left wrist strain. Cruz left Thursday’s opener of a crucial AL Central series against the Indians after re-injuring his left wrist on a fourth-inning swing-and-miss. “We went out and checked on him, and he was feeling some discomfort,” Baldelli said. “You could tell once we got out there that we weren’t going to let him stay in there, or try to swing or do anything like that.”It was more bad news on a night the Twins fell to the second-place Indians, 7-5, to see their lead in the AL Central shrink to one game at the start of the pivotal four-game series.The Twins initially called Cruz day-to-day but put him on the IL Friday afternoon, recalling reliever Cody Stashak from Triple-A Rochester to fill his roster spot. Cruz, 39, entered the night having hit 13 homers in his last 15 games and with a stratospheric 1.204 slugging percentage in that stretch.last_img read more

  • Lendoiro’s emotional farewell to Michael Robinson

    first_imgAugusto César Lendoiro, former president of Deportivo de la Coruña, He dismissed Michael Robinson on Tuesday with an emotional text, died after a long fight against melanoma with metastases that he suffered. These are the words of the former head of the Galician team:In memory of my friend Michael RobinsonMichael Robinson has left us and with him the privilege that Canal + and now Movistar accustomed us to listening to that English-Spanish, half-hearted in his feeling and his diction, which dazzled us for so many years, until winning us all, with Carlos Martinez, Josep Pedrerol, in the box (later Mònica Marchante), Ramos Marcos, Ricardo, at the foot of the field, Maldini … his other family, the radio station, today almost as sorry as his direct family.I met him at the Finita Pub. I think I remember that he was, with Joseph Pedrerol, Ramos Marcos and a cameraman, having a drink when I arrived. They were waiting for me because they knew that on Saturdays I used to stop by. They had told them that in the owner of the pub, Ducho, “El canalla”, a phenomenon of the hospitality industry, had a huge photo of “San Antonio” with my head and with this phrase: “San Lendoiro, what he says goes to mass “And they wanted to take some pictures of me with that nice photo for” The day after “, at the dawn of Super Depor. And they did it. Robinson, I, and all the others ended up drinking in the Orzán until the sun advised us to withdraw. There our friendship was forged, which remained intact forever. It hooked me forever. Our last meeting was on the occasion of that extraordinary Robinson Report he made on Super Depor. It was a meal at “Tira do Playa”, in the usual booth, looking out from Riazor at the Tower of Hercules. The enriching conversation lasted, as usual at our dinners, for four or five hours. They paraded all the special moments we had lived together, and we enjoyed as if they were the last, as unfortunately it has been.In conveying to your wife and son my regret for the enormous misfortune of losing a husband and a unique father, I also want to convey the affection of countless people. Today Mónica Marchante told me that “we have all been orphaned”. And it is true, because, as Alberto Cortez would say, “when a friend leaves, he leaves an empty space that cannot be filled by the arrival of another friend.” Robinson was a unique legal type, and that’s why all of Spain mourns him, because all of Spain loved him. Rest in Peace, friend Michael Robinson. The one with the eternal smile.last_img read more
