Cloud Enabled, High Performance, Simple to Use – Continued Innovation Keeps Dell EMC Data Protection Appliances on Top

first_imgDell EMC’s relentless focus on continued innovation is why customers see Dell EMC as a partner, rather than just a vendor, and stay with us for the long term. Dell EMC delivers simply powerful data protection that scales as our customers’ data grows and provides the flexibility our customers need as their environment and data protection needs evolve and increasingly move to the cloud. While Dell EMC is the unquestionable leader in data protection appliances with close to 60 percent market share[i], it’s our customers and their unique needs that keep us innovating to extend and improve our performance and scalability.Founders Federal Credit Union Achieves High Dedupe Rate with Data Domain and DPSFounders Federal is a regional financial institution that started in 1950 and has now grown to more than 30 locations in North and South Carolina. While working with Dell EMC Engineers, Founders Federal became aware of some gaps in their data protection strategy. “Today’s benefit of using Dell EMC Data Protection Software combined with Data Domain is the ability to deliver a deduplication rate of 72:1.” – Bob Bender – CTO – Founders Federal Credit Unionhttps://vimeo.com/291809764/39cbb5a6e8“We have been a Dell EMC customer for 10 years and I see the partnership with Dell EMC and Founder’s Federal growing as the amount of data we need to protect continues to grow. We also appreciate the fact that Dell EMC does not rest on their laurels and continues to innovate with improved performance and cloud extensibility, which ensures that our data protection needs will continue to be met. The future with the Dell EMC Data Protection is very bright.” – Bob Bender – CTO – Founders Federal Credit UnionFieldCore, a GE company avoids disaster with Dell EMCFieldCore, a GE company, maintains and services powerplants all over the planet. In 2017, with Hurricane Irma bearing down on the state of Florida, FieldCore was concerned about their current backup strategy. FieldCore switched to a Data Domain centric backup strategy, creating a secondary site away from the hurricane’s path replicating their data before Hurricane Irma arrived. Their secondary site was up and running quickly – in less than four days – before Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida.“We went from a 4:1 deduplication ratio to a 41:1 deduplication ratio with Data Domain. We saw backups go from taking upwards of 24 hours to complete to 98 percent of our backups completing in less than one hour. This allowed us to replicate our data before the storm actually hit.” – Kerry Johnson – Senior Systems Engineer – FieldCore, a GE company“We were very happy with how Dell EMC worked with us to get ahead of the storm. Dell EMC has been and will continue to be a long-term partner in managing and protecting our IT infrastructure. I am very confident that Dell EMC will continue to innovate; and their data protection solutions will meet our needs as our environment evolves.” – Kerry Johnson – Senior Systems Engineer – FieldCore, a GE companyCollege Boreal loves IDPAReliable, uninterrupted access to data at 42 campus locations in 28 cities is essential to running operations smoothly at College Boreal. College Boreal needed an integrated backup and recovery solution to lower backup times, along with hardware and IT support costs, while providing simplified and intelligent backup administration. When rapid virtualization led to growing backup windows and IT support costs, College Boreal turned to Dell EMC’s IDPA, which dramatically improved backup speeds and efficiency. As a result, backup times were slashed from five hours to two hours, data deduplication reduced backup storage from 20.5TB to 95.7GB – with a compression factor of 219 percent, and power consumption costs also decreased significantly.“The Dell EMC IDPA provides one stop for easy-to-use, reliable and high-speed backup. That’s invaluable to us. We were up and running with little to no effort and our numbers seem unbelievable! Our nightly backup window completes in half the time. We can’t feed data fast enough to the IDPAs.” – Benoit Bonin, IT director at College Borealhttps://vimeo.com/287234830/3f7174d328Presidio and Dell EMC’s Data Protection…Better TogetherPresidio is a premium provider of digital transformation solutions deployed in a multi-cloud world as a service.

BC Humane Society says gift of new pet this holiday means big responsibility

BC Humane Society says gift of new pet this holiday means big responsibility

first_imgFind out more about adoption at the Broome County Humane Society here. Around the holidays, Shelter Manager Amberly Ondria says people want to gift new animals. While a new animal in the house can be exciting around the holidays, Ondria said, “it’s not just a holiday pet, that when the holidays are over, you’re still going to have to take care of it, medical expenses never go away.” And she said those expenses can be pricey. “There’s research out there that in a lifetime of a pet, you could spend up to 10,000 dollars on them, medical expenses, routine vet care, so we really try to emphasize that people need to be ready for that no matter what the occasion is,” said Ondria. She says new man’s best friends come with more than just the need for a food bowl and leash. center_img “What we try to emphasize is making that they are aware of the commitment,” she says. And even during the holiday season, the society has serious standards for finding forever homes. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — The Broome County Humane Society is educating people on the responsibility associated with the gift of a pet this holiday season. “It takes anywhere from a week to 10 days to get through an adoption application, so people that are looking for last minute gifts so to say, we do have to make sure the animals are going to good homes, that they’re going to be taken care and that nothing in our process changes around the holidays.”last_img read more

WHO team arrives to assist with Ukraine flu probe

WHO team arrives to assist with Ukraine flu probe

first_imgNov 3, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – The World Health Organization (WHO) said its team arrived in the Ukraine last night and met with the country’s health ministry today to discuss a dramatic spike in flulike illnesses and deaths, particularly in the western part of the country.The Ukrainian health ministry has recorded more than 250,000 flulike illnesses, of which 235 patients needed treatment in intensive care units, the WHO said in a statement today. As of yesterday, 70 deaths had been reported.The high level of illnesses activity and severe cases, combined with reports of hemorrhagic pneumonia cases, have raised some speculation that the virus might be behaving differently in the Ukraine, but further testing is just getting under way.Laboratory testing at labs in the Ukraine have confirmed the pandemic H1N1 virus in samples taken from patients in two regions, the WHO said, adding that because the pandemic virus has become dominant throughout the world, most of the Ukrainian respiratory illnesses are probably caused by the novel H1N1 strain.Though the highest illness rates have been seen in the western part of the country, illness activity is increasing rapidly in Kiev, the WHO reported.The WHO’s field investigation team will start in the Lviv region, where the number of cases of severe respiratory illness has been especially high. Virologists from the WHO have started working with Ukrainian scientists at the National Influenza Centre and the Central Sanitary and Epidemiological Station, both in Kiev.Ukraine’s health ministry has sent viral samples to the WHO collaborating center in London, where laboratory experts will conduct confirmatory tests and further characterize the virus.The outbreak raises several questions and may provide clues about how the virus will circulate in the Northern Hemisphere during the winter months, particularly in areas such as Eastern Europe that have healthcare challenges.The WHO commended Ukrainian officials for their transparent reporting and open sharing of viral samples. It also said border closures and international travel restrictions are not warranted.Lawmakers in the Ukraine today approved legislation freeing up $1 billion UAH (about $131 million) in reserve funds for flu response actions, according to a report from UNIAN, the country’s independent news agency.The country’s head sanitary inspector today, in a television interview, denied that the country was experiencing an outbreak of pandemic flu and said only 14 cases had been confirmed, including three deaths, according to another UNIAN report today.Meanwhile, two of Ukraine’s top leaders, who are opponents in a January presidential election, scrambled to respond to the flu outbreak, UNIAN reported. President Victor Yuschenko instructed the military to prepare portable military hospitals, and Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko promised to provide all of the country’s residents with masks to reduce their flu exposure.An official from the Ukraine’s flu and respiratory disease center, Oleksandr Hrynevych, today projected that pandemic H1N1 vaccination could begin in a month or two after regulators approve two vaccines that are undergoing testing, according to a report from the National Radio Company of Ukraine (NRCU). He said the vaccine supply will come from the WHO and from individual country donations.A warden message posted on the US State Department’s Ukrainian embassy Web site said US officials are aware of the outbreak and are monitoring the situation. Though the country has imposed several social-distancing measures, such as a 3-week school closure, Ukrainian officials have told the State Department that no general quarantine is in effect.The US embassy said that, because of legal restrictions and lack of resources, it is not able to provide private citizens with pandemic supplies, medication, medical treatment, or medical advice.See also:Nov 3 WHO pandemic update on pandemic flu in the UkraineUNIAN Web sitehttp://unian.net/eng/Nov 3 NRCU reportlast_img read more

Brunt given one-match ban

Brunt given one-match ban

first_imgWest Brom midfielder Chris Brunt has been suspended for one-match and fined £8,000 after accepting a Football Association misconduct charge. The Northern Ireland international faced the threat of a two-game ban and Albion’s director of football administration Richard Garlick believes the punishment reflected the circumstances in which the game finished. Villa fans invaded the pitch at the final whistle and had also run onto the surface while the game was still in play, with the invasions the subject of an FA investigation. Referee Anthony Taylor had also sent off Albion’s Claudio Yacob and Villa’s Jack Grealish towards the end of the match. “We had a fair hearing and feel the punishment is an acknowledgement by the Commission that this was an extraordinary case,” said Garlick, after the Independent Regulatory Commission in London on Tuesday. “It was a difficult end to the game for everyone and emotions were running high. “I think Chris’s disciplinary record, which has seen him issued with one red card in more than 400 appearances at the highest levels, was also rightly noted.” The 30-year-old had requested a personal hearing after being charged with using abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour towards a match official in or around the tunnel area after the final whistle following Albion’s 2-0 FA Cup defeat to Aston Villa this month. Brunt is banned with immediate effect and will miss Saturday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Manchester City. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Australia facing 29-year rankings low

Australia facing 29-year rankings low

first_imgSTEVE Smith’s men are just one defeat away from becoming the lowest-ranked Australian Test team in almost three decades.Australia’s nail-biting loss to Bangladesh in Dhaka has seen them nominally slip from fourth to fifth in the International Cricket Council’s Test rankings, which are officially updated at the end of each series.And another loss to a spirited home side in the second Test next week will see the Aussies drop to sixth, their lowest ranking since 1988.That 1988 side led by Allan Border is considered one of the weakest in Australian Test history and was labelled as such by the English media when they arrived in the UK for the 1989 Ashes tour, which ultimately turned their fortunes around.In July 1988, when the Aussies were last ranked sixth, they had won just eight of 43 Tests in the preceding five years, during which time they had lost series at both home and away to England, New Zealand and the West Indies.They moved up to fifth in August of that year after England were thrashed 4-0 at home by the Windies and their famous Ashes triumph 12 months later started a rapid rise to the top of world cricket in the 1990s and early 2000s.Smith conceded his young side still had “a long way to go” before they would rise up the rankings again.“I don’t know if we’re better than that at the moment, that’s a difficult question,” Smith said of Australia’s current ranking.“I think we’re still a young team, obviously some new players have come in only last year in the summer and some guys are still trying to find their way. We’re a young team and we’re a team that hopefully is going to continue to improve.“We’ve still got a long way to go to rise up in the rankings and hopefully as a group we can continue to improve and get better.”While Australia risk sliding to an uncommon low in Bangladesh, they will retain fifth spot with either a win or a draw in Chittagong next week.And recent history suggests the Aussies could produce a swift change in their ranking with victory in the Magellan Ashes against England this summer.The Aussies were last ranked fifth in the world following their 2013 Ashes defeat in the UK, after they had gone nine successive Tests without a win. But their subsequent Ashes whitewash on home soil and 2-1 series win in South Africa saw them jump to top spot in May the following year.And the at-times fickle nature of the ICC’s rankings is underlined by the fact the Aussies were handed the official Test mace as world No.1 a little more than 12 months ago. Their rise to No.1 last year was followed by five successive defeats (to Sri Lanka and South Africa), five straight wins (against South Africa, Pakistan and India) and now three losses and a draw from their past four Tests (against India and Bangladesh).But despite the ever-changing nature of the official rankings, the Aussies have repeatedly stated their desire to be the No.1 team in the world.“We want to be No.1 in all three formats across men’s and women’s cricket,” Pat Howard, Cricket Australia’s Executive General Manager of High Performance, said earlier this year when he signed a new two-year contract.Australia’s men’s team are currently ranked second in one-day internationals and sixth in T20s, while the women’s team hold down the No.1 spot in the women’s rankings, which incorporate Test, ODI and T20 cricket.The result in Dhaka has also given Bangladesh a massive rankings boost, handing them 10 rankings points and ensuring they stay just ahead of the West Indies, following the Caribbean side’s shock victory against England at Headingley.CURRENT ICC TEST RANKINGS(official rankings will be updated at the end of the series)1) India – 1252) South Africa – 1103) England – 1024) New Zealand – 975) Australia – 946) Pakistan – 937) Sri Lanka – 908) Bangladesh – 799) West Indies – 79last_img read more
