The ARPANET was the Internet’s first major network crash. What’s next?

Unlike the early years of the Internet (think ARPANET), network crashes today are quite rare. As a result, many companies have grown complacent. Yet with the openness of the Internet, its value to billions of people, and its exposure to hackers, we face the possibility of more severe network failures. Before you say that networks never fail, imagine the consequences if you’re wrong.

News from comforte

In November, comforte was a major sponsor for the NonStop Technical Bootcamp – the premier event attended by advocates for HPE NonStop systems.  Many of the conversations our team had were centered around modernization (or digital transformation as it’s being called lately) and around data protection.  What was really interesting is the fact that ‘growth’ was a major driver for gather information about both topics. 

For modernization, companies are upgrading their NonStop systems to the X-series – and they want the extra horse-power to handle the anticipated transaction volume increase. While they ‘modernize’ their hardware to the latest NonStop models, many were looking for answers for upgrading their legacy applications and out-of-support communication links. 

For data protection, companies are expecting an increase in sensitive data, especially as they offer more services to keep and attract customers and, as they look to perform analytics with Big Data.

Here are links to video recordings of the presentations given at the NonStop Technical Bootcamp, in case you missed it.

XYPRO - The 100 | Our Employees are as Important as our Customers


The 100 | Our Employees are as Important as our Customers

When reflecting on XYPRO’s longevity and success (we recently welcomed our 100th employee and have celebrated many years of consistent gains), we often assess whether we’re continuing to do the things that got us here, even as we grow.  Why do our customers continue to buy from us?  What differentiates us from our competition?   Do we have our finger on the pulse of the industry?  Are we innovating? Maybe they like our sales team, or our professional services rep that helped them with the installation.  Maybe they had an excellent experience with our customer support team.  Maybe it’s some or all of these things.

Gravic Publishes New Technical Article on Swapping Replication Engines with Zero Downtime

 Gravic published a technical article, Swapping Replication Engines with Zero Downtime in the November/December issue of The Connection. Sometimes it is necessary to change or update a data replication engine. A zero downtime migration will impose no downtime on either applications or users. The migration can take place during normal working hours and occur over an extended time, while the backup database is always available and fully synchronized with the production database. Therefore, application availability is ensured during the migration process. This migration technique is similar to HPE Shadowbase Zero Downtime Migration (ZDM) that customers have been using for decades to upgrade their applications, database schema formats, file and table locations (or indices), operating systems, or perform a hardware refresh. In this article, we describe how a data replication engine can be changed without taking down either applications or the backup database.

Deep Learning….what really is it?  Join HPE at a NVIDIA Deep Learning Workshop

You’ve seen in the news that in today’s digital climate, organizations of every size and industry are both collecting and generating enormous amounts of data that can potentially be used to solve the world’s greatest problems—from national security and fraud detection to scientific breakthroughs and technological advancement.  And you’ve also read that traditional analysis techniques and practices are not capable of rapidly delivering automated, real-time insights from the rising data volumes to the point that artificial intelligence (AI) is becoming vital to harnessing the full understanding of scientific and business data.  But you’re left wondering how all this works….So why not join us at our NVIDIA Deep Learning Fundamentals workshop which covers the foundations of deep learning and offers hands-on training in image classification, object detection, and neural network deployment using popular frameworks.  This is a full-day workshop ideal for developers, data and research scientists looking to solve challenging problems with deep learning.  View full schedule here.  For some upcoming events in Europe see below, or if you wish to request a workshop click here.
