CNET, April 13th 2017

Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray discs deliver the best home video picture quality you can buy. Here's what you need to know

"Ultra HD 4K Blu-rays have the best picture quality possible for your 4K TV, even better than streaming 4K from Netflix or Amazon," writes Geoffrey Morrison in CNET.

"Even better, many discs have high dynamic range (HDR) and wide color gamut (WCG) content, which provide a much more noticeable improvement than 4K resolution, provided your TV can deliver it.

While many assume most IT issues that impact mission-critical services are the result of a catastrophic technology failure, they are often due to a human error that could have been prevented

"In late January, an outage at Delta caused hundreds of flight cancellations and delays," writes Nick Ismail in Information Age. "More recently, Amazon Web Services' (AWS) Simple Storage Service (S3) suffered an outage that disrupted services for tens of thousands of customers including popular sites like Netflix, Spotify, Pinterest and Expedia.

When a network goes down, theories run rampant. Was it a software bug? cyber attack? systems failure?..."

devops.com, March 10th, 2017

"Amazon S3 storage service recently experienced a widespread five-hour outage in its East Coast availability zone," reports Shalabh Goyal in devops.com. "Many next-generation consumer and business applications rely on a cloud storage, so the S3 outage quickly cascaded and temporarily crippled organizations from Netflix to Slack.

Cloud outages like this are normal, and notable because they affect so many businesses. The last significant AWS outage was in August 2016. While Amazon S3 is architected for data durability, that doesn't equal fast recoverability during an outage. As good as cloud platforms are, they still leave a few gaps:..."
