the UK currency recovers. Not very likely to happen anytime soon....
that was an issue in 1960, and it still is. mainframes, mini's, pc's, vm's, containers, serverless code, the cloud:
all presented as the philosopher's stone that was going to solve all your problems.
all to good to be true, and that's exactly what they all are.
all ignoring the same issue: how do we keep the data and meta data available, even when
the engine blows a fuse... or even blows up....
everyone ought to have a job. that's an ideal. a wish.
the hard reality is that IF the UK does leave the EU, it will have to live with that.
that means it doesnt want to share, and should expect to be treated in that way.
anyway, evenly is 50 mln brits vs 330 mln EU.
so even evenly is not going to be a very pleasant experience, especially not for London.
on the bright site,
- David C refuses to do a 50, leaving it up to the triumphant brexiters to do the dirty work of hurting Britain's economy even more than they already did.
The triumphant brexiters ?? we are a little short on these, recently
- Boris is not going to do a 50 either
- Nigel....ditto He just keeps collecting his 100K GBP from the EU parliament until they throw him out.
- Gove --- won't do it either. He never did/does what he promised/promises
- Mrs May was and is a remainer.
So, for anyone watching the show,
there is not going to be a Brexit.
just let it sink in.
there is not going to be a Brexit.
cheers, and welcome back. It will cost the British people, of course. as usual....
your phonebook is whatsapp's, and thus the USA government agencies already have
the social fabric of 700 million ppl PLUS their phonebook connections:
practically, that is everyone.......
wether you use whatsapp or not, does not matter. someone else has you in their phonebook who does.....
going to get caught by their own admission.
the sole purpose of the questions on admission / visa requests is to force the criminal/terrorist to tell lies. Lying is not allowed, and thus the USA has a legal ground to deport or arrest the person.
the social media handle is just another addition: we do or do not like you, but we certainly do not like your facebook friends....
amazon does NOT, I repeat, NOT make a reasonable profit, compared to their revenue.
they do (and have to) invest most of their earnings into staying ahead.
it does have, however, billions from investors. as long as these investors are happy with the shareprice, amazon will survive.
10 yrs ago they started at 34 USD, today they are at almost 700 USD (source: yahoo)
that share price is based on turnover (revenue) and gutfeeling.
what the balance is between the two, is anyone's guess...
Already had the interview experience :-)
there's no lightning in clouds.
lighting is outgoing traffic when we are talking clouds.... normally, anyway........
sadly S3 is one of the worst pieces of hardware ever produced, which ever version,
and that was when it was new. which is 10+ years ago, if I care to remember.
dump that stuff. it never worked properly then (on windows) and it wont now.....
I advice you to change vendor.
you're making a direct comparison with cloud storage.
must mean that fte cost is not in there, apart from the 0,1 fte for handling all the hardware stuff around storage. assuming the avg company has let us say 100 tbyte, with 10% of a 30K guy, the FTE cost is meaningless. ( 3 cts per GB, per year)
databases, documents, vm storage, they still need to be managed and secured, so that cost sits on both sides.
really. buy something else.
is not much, for a software company.
their cost is growing almost as fast as their turnover.
normally in the case of a software business, we would speak of a business in trouble.
In that case, 2 bln only makes it a bigger failure if they ever go tits up.
sorry. it is not technology.
code is written by people. even if you make it HFDCT (c), we will keep seeing failures.
cuz it is us, not the machine. the machine does what we *actually* told it to do.
hence, this will keep happening.
just like it always did. we moved the issue, we did not solve it. and we never will.
the problem with your post is that you are accusing without substantiating.
which leads me to believe you are just a b***ter
he has a ton of reading and surfing to do. and maybe even trying out stuff, just to make sure it does what it promises.
e.g, openstack has had working installers from several sources for 2 or more years now.
ansible and chef runbooks / recipees
Fuel, a openstack.org tool, originating from Mirantis
Redhat and Suse openstack implementations. ( guaranteed to work .... etc ..... )
all of them 100% OSS and guaranteed to work within the same afternoon.
since Kilo you can upgrade openstack, too, and some of the above even support it.
If you are a bank, and fork a couple of hundred mln / a billion or 1 or 2 perhaps......
then you dont even have to acknowledge wrongdoing.....
making money on poisoning (young) people gets you ten years, money crimes 20,
unless you are a bank......
then you have the free out of jail card as long as you pay....
if you dont understand it, then start educating yourself :-)
" Dell will stop making its own sh*te brands and no one buys and adopt EMC across the board instead."
in fact, everybody buys it. in volume, Dell is the biggest. But margin is much lower.
I think the plan is to take over EMC's customer base, make them happy with software defined storage at much lower prices. running on cheap sh**te from DELL.
High end storage is a shrinking niche, which explains why EMC has a problem, not Dell.
The margins that EMC has, are going to melt away very quickly in the next 5 years, because nobody wants to buy their sh**te again unless they have to for this or that niche purpose, you see.
"An IT director who is directing operations for infrastructure and also overseeing development and design, with detailed technical knowledge of a whole series of platforms from Microsoft to non-Microsoft? I would pay £1,000/day for someone who could do all of that,"
easy. done that, still do it. give me a ring :-)
the answer to all questions, I suppose :-)
1) surrender and learn the new
2) switch over to a linux distro with KDE.
I wonder what stops microsoft in 2015 to have only 2048.
1995: my pc had 16 mbyte
2015: my pc has 8196 mbyte.
buyer as in ignorant investor / n**b ??
That means risking to give him a fair trial and perhaps he walks because of lack of evidence.
That is precisely the reason why Osama bin Laden was "removed" instead of trialled....
solaris on x86 was pretty much very dead, by design, decisions, policy and strategy of Oracle itself.
does NOT run on sparc.
yes, one can do it. but most shops do not.
Anyway, these chips are not about volume. it is about many of sockets, hundreds of cores in a single system.
typically what you do not see in x86 based systems, and the ones that do, do not scale.
some letters here....
downloads. as of this moment
Mr author, you should at least have spent 5 minutes on Dell's website to check your facts.
your article is full of bold statements, without rationale or even basic fact checking.
you ought to be a little red in the face now. for a while to come.
better pull this article, if I were you.....
where are the linux hacks / spook code & tools ?
is it only SE linux they did ? I do not believe it.... :-)
"There is no suggestion at this stage that the certificates were used for malicious purposes."
Egypt locks up journalists for no reason, and so does china.
Think before you write???
thats what this Morozov guy is talking about. obviously, he doesnt quite get to the point like I can.
quote from that:
A study by the World Institute for Development Economics Research at United Nations University reports that the richest 1% of adults alone owned 40% of global assets in the year 2000, and that the richest 10% of adults accounted for 85% of the world total. The bottom half of the world adult population owned 1% of global wealth. Moreover, another study found that the richest 2% own more than half of global household assets.
no one wants them, no one clicks them out of fear for viruses etc.
the only non intrusive ads are printed on paper.
unsolicited email advertisement is punishable by law in some jurisdictions. (3500 euro per item ?)
unsolicited online advertisement is not punishable in the same jurisdictions.
time to unify the law and thus the experience. Apparently, we the people, do not want ads, so get rid of it......
and btw, our internet connection is being paid by us, so that is not an excuse for advertising.
that's it and that's that. lots of sales, no profit.
no cigar for this story.
that is going to loose market share fast. Dell is simply trying to commoditize storage.
Having high margins like EMC simply means EMC is ripping it's customers.
but then again, that is not really a new fact, is it ?
simple picture. that shows that the coldest places on earth were (in 2014) quite a bit more warm than normal.
upto 4 degrees.
pgp for android is not exactly yesterday's invention........
Apple/Google just wanted to get rid of authorities wanting for-free-as-in-beer assistance to catch stupid criminals.
The smart ones encrypted their stuff already by themselves with encryption of their own......
or the USA.
companies, and american companies are no exception, will do whatever they can get away with.
monsanto is a nice example: now trying to poison us all with round-up,
before that with agent orage (ask vietnam vets what that does) and before that with DDT.
so it needs regulating, if we do not want to die collectively.
same goes for zuck's little business, or google's or huawei's or <fill in your favourite>
get a life. behind bars preferably, because that is where these GCHQ gits belong.
well, maybe not.
Curious to know what this guy is smoking.....
usable for the way we are going to do application deployments.
at least, that is what I am reading here. wouldnt mind having some rationale for that :-)
no more VMware in 5 years time, then :-)
Apparently, RedHat is more and more becoming a PR machine.
Somewhere 3 years ago they already spend 4x more dollars on PR than on R&D. (SEC filling, find it yourself if you must :-) )
coffeemugs, t-shirts, talented PR people.
it works, as we can see. RedHat is becoming a kind of drop-in replacement for Solaris / HP-UX.
here is the catch.
RHEL is a drop-in replacement, yes. but not technology-wise.
RedHat's subscription business model is a drop-in replacement for the old generation of CIO's, who want to have a sales-rep to yell at and to blame when their shop goes titsup.... A billion dollar company, "how could I have known it was not good at <....> ? " is a very good blame-catcher.
It takes a lot more guts to go opensource all the way. running a very expensive proprietary database on a very expensive linux is not much different from what it has replaced........... you won't get fired for that if it goes awry.........
fortunately, the USA economy will collapse next year.
perhaps that will help. (all of europe with a seriously damaged pension perspective or none at all)
is also quite expensive.
10's of beeeelllions spent, and no result whatsoever......
if you have your own ssl provider, replace the private key with your own and you are good to go.....
like to share is welcome, including spreadsheets :-)
is also a OS, right ?
these guys gave us kvm on top of the os,
and now tell us we can live without kvm on top of the os.
Been there, done that, still doing it. without KVM.
read it carefully. she's saying IBM can't allow employees to put customer data on a service not controlled by IBM. simple compliance, and a good rule this time.
number of devices that western digital sold like live book. (44x power chips)
or the powerchips in almost every motormanagement system of many car brands
or sat receivers, wifi routets, and so on.
there's millions of those chips.....
