29 Aug 2014 ITWorld Cartoons 2014: The Year in Geek Humor [38108]
IT World, August 29th, 2014

"Is it is just me or is this whole 'as a service' trend getting a little out of hand? Thanks to the cloud, we've had things like Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) for a while now. All of which is great, but new 'as a service' services seem to be cropping up like weeds. Earlier this week I was reading about Backend as a Service (BaaS), which was new to me, at least. Turns out there are also other cloud services like Network as a Service (NaaS), Monitoring as a Service and Communications as a Service (CaaS). Where will it end?..."

17 Aug 2014 Cloud Security Priorities and Synergies with Enterprise Security [37820]
Network World, August 4th, 2014

"CISOs must prioritize identity, data security, and security monitoring, and strive for a 'single-pane-of-glass' across enterprise IT, SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS," writes Jon Oltsik in Network World.

"According to ESG research, 63% of mid-market (i.e. 250 to 999 employees) and enterprise (i.e. more than 1,000 employees) are currently using Software-as-a Service (SaaS), 33% use Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), and 27% employ Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) today (note: I am an ESG employee).

13 Aug 2014 Support for Kernel Zones with the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.2 Data Service for Oracle Solaris Zones [37797]
By T.F.

T.F. writes, "The Oracle Solaris Cluster Data Service for Oracle Solaris Zones is enhanced to support Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones (also called solaris-kz branded zones) with Oracle Solaris 11.2.

This data service provides high availability for Oracle Solaris Zones through three components in a failover or multi-master configuration:

  • sczbt: The orderly booting, shutdown and fault monitoring of an Oracle Solaris zone.
  • sczsh: The orderly startup, shutdown and fault monitoring of an application within the Oracle Solaris zone (managed by sczbt), using scripts or commands.
  • sczsmf: The orderly startup, shutdown and fault monitoring of an Oracle Solaris Service Management Facility (SMF) service within the Oracle Solaris zone managed by sczbt.

With Oralce Solaris Cluster 4.0 and 4.1 the sczbt component does support cold migration (boot and shutdown) of solaris and solaris10 branded zones..."

06 Aug 2014 How Big Data Helps the Tiniest Patients [37735]
Information Management, August 6th, 2014

"When research scientists at Kaiser Permanente began a decade ago to track data on patients from their neonatal intensive care units, they had a rather simple objective: that all the children in their care would come to their annual reunions alive and healthy.

Over the course time, the research scientists expanded their efforts, monitoring a wide array of health issues - including cases of infant sepsis - and came up with a new treatment weapon: big data. After years of pulling together mounds of data, the healthcare consortium today draws information from across its data stores to accurately predict the potential for early-onset of the potentially deadly infection in newborns..."
