The benefits of the cloud make adoption a no-brainer, but it is the implementation that takes some serious thought. It starts with developing a strategy to find the most productive use of the cloud for your organization, but it doesn’t end there.

You also need to determine which workloads are a good fit for the cloud. Fortunately, a structured approach to cloud workload analysis, based on established methods and automation, can help.

Big data implementation checklist for analytics project managers.

Big data analytics projects are at the top of the IT priority list for many organizations looking to wring business benefits out of all the data — structured, unstructured and semi-structured — flowing into their systems. But with any initiative that offers big rewards, there are also accompanying big risks. That’s certainly true of a big data implementation, which makes planning and managing deployments effectively a must.

Big data vendors should stop dissing data warehouse systems

Big data vendors should stop dissing data warehouse systems.

I’ve heard so many big data vendors bash data warehouses as a way to justify their new technologies that it’s getting annoying. To them, data warehouse systems are monolithic, costly and inflexible, while their technologies are fast, flexible and affordable. “Buy our products,” they shout in their shiny collateral, “and we’ll save you from data warehousing hell.”

The Changing Face of Tier-1 Storage in the Modern Data Center

As the popularity of technologies such as virtualization, the need for flexibility and cloud systems continue to increase among organizations, so have the number of demands on storage infrastructures. Tier-1 storage typically supports these technologies, but with the rise of demands tier-1 storage needs to adapt in order to provide performance, reliability, agility and efficiency. So how is tier-1 storage keeping up with the new data center in this new IT era?

Explore this informative, in-depth white paper to discover how the modern data center is affecting the face of tier-1 storage.

SAP partners with Uni of Cambridge to launch autism intern programme.

But for their neurological disorder there is a talented force available globally as  software testers, programmers and data quality assurance specialists.

As part of a five-year agreement, SAP and the University of Cambridge will identify talented students for the Autism at Work programme. The chosen interns will work in one of SAPs locations – India, US, Canada, Ireland or Germany. Candidates will have the goal of being selected to become SAP employees following the completion of their internship.

AUTISM: The condition is the result of a neurological disorder that has an effect on normal brain function, affecting development of the person’s communication and social interaction skills.

Not all people with autism have an incredible gift or savantism for numbers or music.However, a sizeable proportion of people with an ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) have high IQs and a unique talent for computer science.

OpenLDAP configuration tips for working smarter, evading common stress.

Beware the arduous Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) tasks. Configure applications without SSL certifications first to ensure everything works, advised Ian Kaufman, research systems administrator in the Jacobs School of Engineering at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Certificate management can cause distress for certain operating systems, especially Solaris, he said.

“We wanted something fairly easily implemented and managed, but also something very extensible and customizable,” Kaufman said. UCSD runs OpenLDAP on their three Oracle Solaris 10 servers.

Shocking neglect or Planned Propaganda?

Couple this to AAP member’s utterances about Plebiscite in J&K – a weird idea to begin with, which lost relevance particularly with the severely changed demographics, and one gets alarmed about what this organization is all about!!

Bana Singh

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Naib Subedar (Later Subedar Major & Honorary Captain) Bana Singh, PVC was born on 3 January 1949[1]into a Sikhfamily, at Kadyal in Jammu and Kashmir. He enrolled in the Indian Army on 6 January 1969 into the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry (JAK LI).[2][3] He was trained at the High Altitude Warfare School in Gulmarg (in Kashmir) and also at another school at Sonamarg. He was awarded the Param Vir Chakra,the highest wartime gallantry medal in India.[1][4][5][6] The Pakistani post was at a height of 6500 metres,[5] the highest peak in the Siachen Glacier area. From this feature the Pakistanis could snipe at Indian army positions since the height gave a clear view of the entire saltoro range and siachen glacier. The enemy post was virtually an impregnable glacier fortress with ice walls, 457 metres high, on either side. Naib Subedar Bana Singh led his men through an extremely difficult and hazardous route. He and his men crawled and closed in on the adversary.[7] Lobbing hand grenades, charging with a bayonet and moving from trench to trench, he cleared the post.

Final Assault
A total of 162 people participated to the final operation. Two officers, 3 JCO and 157 jawans were selected. The operation was conducted in three phases on June 23, June 25 and June 26, 1987. A first platoon was sent under Major Varinder Singh on 23 June but unfortunately they had to come back. 22 soldiers were killed. The second platoon led by Subedar Harnam Singh with 40 jawans made an attempt on June 25. At that time, there was no problem with the rope, but due to some communication gap with us, the mission had to be aborted. The next day, on 26, Bana Singh and his team were told that they will try another attack and capture the Post from the enemy today itself. A message was passed from the Major General who was the Task Force Commander and they got the green light. The assault was in daylight and there was a heavy snowfall.There was a single bunker on the top.At the end, a total of six Pakistanis were killed. Their bodies were brought back and were later handed over to the Pakistanis authorities during a flag meeting in Kargil.[8] The entire operation was completed by 5 pm.[8]

Naib Subedar Bana Singh was awarded the Param Vir Chakra, the highest wartime gallantry medal in India, for conspicuous bravery and leadership under most adverse conditions on January 26, 1988.[6] The peak which he captured was renamed Bana Top in his honour. At the time of the Kargil War, he was the only PVC awardee who was still serving in the Army.

CITATION
The citation for the Param Vir Chakra awarded to him reads:
NB SUB BANA SINGH
8 JAK LI (JC-155825)
Naib Subedar Bana Singh volunteered to be a member of a task force constituted in June 1987 to clear an intrusion by an adversary in the Siachen Glacier area at an altitude of 21,000 feet. The post was virtually an impregnable glacier fortress with ice walls, 1500 feet high, on both sides. Naib Subedar Bana Singh led his men through an extremely difficult and hazardous route. He inspired them by his indomitable courage and leadership. The brave Naib Subedar and his men crawled and closed in on the adversary. Moving from trench to trench, lobbing hand grenades, and charging with the bayonet, he cleared the post all intruders.
Nb Subedar Bana Singh displayed the most conspicuous gallantry and leadership under the most adverse conditions.”
