Dell EMC VxRail Goes Beyond Exceptional

Posted on by

first_imgLast month IDC released a study, The Business Value of Dell EMC VxRail and VMware Cloud Foundation on Dell EMC VxRail¹, that shows how VxRail makes the exceptional expected.Since the launch of VxRail almost five years ago, Dell Technologies has relentlessly innovated the platform, rapidly releasing new functionality and platform enhancements, improving serviceability, and supporting new use cases to deliver the most value to you – whether in the core, at the edge, or in the cloud. Today, we’re introducing new VxRail updates that continue our commitment to bring the platform beyond exceptional.Growing possibilities with new VxRail hardware configurationsOne of the more astounding findings from the IDC study is that customers are able to increase the number of new application features by up to 73%.¹ Thousands of possible VxRail platform configurations and native VMware integration are key to enabling customers to continuously innovate at this level. In other words, VxRail can be configured for any workload while also providing a simplified and reliable operating environment, enabling organizations to spend less time managing infrastructure and more time focused on business initiatives.In June of last year, we added to our configuration possibilities with AMD EPYC processors on VxRail E Series – our low profile, cost-effective platform ideal for space-constrained locations. In our efforts to go beyond exceptional, we asked ourselves, why stop at the E Series? That’s why we are announcing an all new 2U platform, VxRail P675F and P675N, based on 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors offering additional choice and flexibility when selecting compute. VxRail P675F and P675N are part of the VxRail P Series, our most performance-intensive platform for business-critical workloads like SQL or Oracle database applications. Compared to the 1U E Series with AMD processors, the AMD 2U P Series has multiple, larger PSU options. This allows for a broader range of CPU offerings, larger memory configurations, and additional PCIe cards (NICs or FC HBAs).The P675F and P675N configurations also include additional graphic options with the NVIDIA Tesla T4 and NVIDIA Tesla V100S GPU. These GPUs provide enhanced performance for graphics intensive workloads like AI, data analytics, deep learning, and high-performance computing.Finally, we have further expanded use case possibilities with the introduction of the Intel x710 NIC Enhanced Network Stack (ENS) driver support. ENS is a networking stack mode that provides improved network operations by dynamically prioritizing network traffic to support demanding workloads that require higher levels of performance. Imagine a popular streaming service is set to debut the latest big blockbuster movie. Since opening day will likely strain networking resources, service providers will want to dynamically prioritize their network infrastructure for these eager viewers waiting to catch the first glimpse of the movie.Adding exceptional value with new VxRail HCI System SoftwareThe IDC study talks about how our customers have experienced 68% more efficient IT infrastructure teams, in part due to the extensive automation built into VxRail HCI System Software.¹ VxRail HCI System Software delivers extensive automation, orchestration and lifecycle management to streamline operations.VxRail continues to build on providing a seamless customer lifecycle management experience with the latest release of VxRail 7.0.130. With this release, we expand the LCM ecosystem to support the ENS drivers for the Intel x710 NIC. We also introduce a new health check feature that allows users to run the latest set of health checks so that you can to take advantage of improved and enhanced health checks as soon as they are available. You can run this outside of the upgrade window, so you’re ready when it’s time to upgrade. Together, these enhancements expand the automation of the LCM and simplify the planning and scheduling of upgrades.This release also includes a support procedure to expand a 2-node ROBO to a 3-or-more-node cluster. As more and more business happens at the edge, organizations need IT solutions with greater performance and more storage in order to meet the requirements of these data intensive applications. The ability to grow your ROBO VxRail clusters allows you to rapidly innovate to respond to changing IT initiatives and expand workload possibilities.What’s next?This year will bring a number of new, exciting announcements for VxRail that will further our commitment to go beyond exceptional. Is infinite exceptionalism a thing? We say, “Challenge accepted!”¹IDC Business Value White Paper, sponsored by Dell Technologies and Intel, “The Business Value of Dell EMC VxRail and VMware Cloud Foundation on Dell EMC VxRail,” December 2020. Actual results will vary.last_img read more

Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers Dish Their Favorite Field-Tested Gear

Posted on by

first_imgAndy Mossey and Steph Whatton know how to road trip. The couple does it for a living. Mossey and Whatton are a traveling trainer team for Subaru and Leave No Trace, driving across the Eastern U.S., educating schools, camps, and the general public about Leave No Trace principles. They live year round in an Outback and spent 250 nights camping last year. “The best part of living in your car, is you have everything you need to adventure all the time,” says Mossey. “If we have a couple of hours of free time, and we’re in a spot with incredible climbing or trail running, we’re ready to go.” After a year on the road, Mossey and Whatton have dialed in their road trip gear and system. Here, they outline their favorite pieces of road trip gear.Taxa TigerMoth ($12,900)AM: We recently put a trailer on the Subaru. It only weighs 900 pounds, but has a queen sized bed and a pull out kitchen. There’s tons of storage room…it’s amazing. It’s designed to give you every piece of living equipment, as if you’re living in a basecamp.tigermoth1_FIXBig Agnes Double Z ($110)SW: I couldn’t do this job without that thing. Getting a good night’s sleep is crucial, and this insulated sleeping pad is more comfortable than the mattress in my last apartment.DoubleZ_Small2014_FIXThule Sonic XL ($659)AM: This roof box is our gear closet. It has a super rigid design, with tons of room for all of our climbing gear. Says Whatton, “It’s so sturdy, and unbelievably durable for all weather conditions. I don’t know what we’d do without it.”thule-sonic-xl-cargo-box_FIXENO Hammock ($60)SW: We have our ENOs with us at all times—a DoubleNest and a SingleNest. I really like the new strap system, the Helios, made from Dyneema. They’re really lightweight but also user friendly. The SingleNest is key if we want to have our own space. We’re together all the time, so sometimes that’s nice.SH khaki-olive_FIXCamp Chef Everest Stove ($125)AM: We’re big foodies, making food every day, twice a day. It’s a two-burner stove that’s incredibly reliable You can cook anything on this stove. Our go-to meal is vegetable stir fry, with curry rice.MS2HP_FIXRinse Kit ($90)This little tub of sanitation holds and pressurizes two gallons of water so you can get clean and hit the town immediately after that trail run, ride or climb.RinseKit-Product-2016-Open-Print_FIXMazama Sidestream Hydration Pack ($39) The Sidestream provides a smooth, bounce-free run and an easy, one-handed drink motion that doesn’t interrupt your stride.

Bay Shore LGBT Senior Housing Center Would be 1st for NY

Posted on by

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York One day after the U.S. Supreme Court cleared the way for same-sex marriages in five additional states, Suffolk County officials and LGBT advocates announced a plan for a gay-friendly senior housing facility they hope will also make history.The facility, which the county said would be built along a depressed stretch of Park Avenue currently lined with several unoccupied properties, would be the first of its kind in the tri-state area, and only the fifth such pro-LGBT senior living complex in the nation.The 55-rental unit property in Bay Shore, they said, would serve two important purposes: prevent housing discrimination against gay, lesbian and transgender couples and brighten up that stretch of Park Avenue.“For many LGBT seniors today…they grew up really with a lifetime of stigma and discrimination,” David Kilmnick, CEO of Long Island GLBT Network, said in a phone interview following a press conference announcing the plan.“Many of them came out later in life and later than many people are these days,” he said. “What happens in retirement homes now and nursing facilities, is that the people they grew up with that supported this culture of discrimination and hostility toward gay people are the ones who are in these retirement facilities now.”Kilmnick was joined by Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, New York State Assemb. Phil Ramos (D-Brentwood), and several business leaders.Bellone spoke about the strides the county has made in becoming more inclusive over the last couple of years, a stark change from when “Suffolk County was considered a County of intolerance,” he said.“However in the last two and a half years, we have changed the tide and today’s announcement only reinforces the commitment I made to ensure that this county embraces its diversity and serves as a welcoming place for all,” Bellone said.The proposal, if approved by the county legislature on Nov. 18, would give the developer, Westchester County-based POKO Partners LLC the go-ahead to begin planning stages for the property.The complex would be built on the current site of the LGBT Community Center in Bay Shore, Kilmnick said. Eventually, the center would be razed and a new one would be built.Kilmnick said a facility like the one being proposed is important because housing discrimination against same-sex couples is still prevalent on Long Island, though there is currently no data available to demonstrate how pervasive it is.“It’s all about creating the safety net for our seniors as they go through golden years,” he said. “No one should have to be in a closet.”Despite the absence of tangible data, there have been attempts made to shine a light on housing discrimination against same-sex couples.A U.S. Housing and Urban Development report released in June 2013 titled, “An Estimate of Housing Discrimination Against Same-Sex Couples,” found that heterosexual couples received more favorable treatment than gay couples in the online rental housing market.“The primary form of adverse treatment is that same-sex couples receive significantly fewer responses to e-mail inquiries about advertised units than heterosexual couples,” researchers wrote.Although the Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, sex and familial status, as the study notes, it does not make it illegal on the federal level to discriminate against someone based on their sexual identity.However, New York is one of more than a dozen states that includes sexual orientation and gender identity in its housing discrimination law.“This will brighten up the community,” Kilmnick said of the complex.Also, Kilmnick was pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision Monday not to hear the appeals of five states whose gay marriage bans were overturned by lower courts, but noted that the fight for marriage equality and gay rights is far from over, noting that a disproportionate number of gay youths still face discrimination.Still, “it was a good decision,” he said. “It wound up with a positive outcome.”last_img read more

Why feedback should be a priority at your credit union

John manages the content on the site, including current news, editorial, press releases, jobs and events. He keeps the credit union … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details When feedback is obtained regularly, it’s a valuable source of information that can be helpful in making decisions in many areas of the business. Here are three ways feedback should be used at your credit union.From member to credit union: If you want to provide your members with the best possible products and services to meet the needs in their lives, you need to listen to them. Members have problems, and it’s your job to help solve them. Giving the member what they want is a great way to build loyalty and trust, and feedback is a great way to know if you’re members are satisfied with what you’re providing.From employee to manager: Employees see things you don’t see in the day to day processes in your office. Employees keep things running. If you want your ship to sail as smooth as possible, you need to listen to your employees. Do they have the tools they need to succeed? Could processes be changed to improve the way things work? Listen to your employees. When they feel like their voice matters, they’ll feel valued and appreciated.From manager to employee: Employees want to feel valued. If your team doesn’t feel that you appreciate the great work they do, it doesn’t provide them with the urge to work hard to accomplish those things. On the flip side, if they’re not performing to the level you’d like, they want you to tell them. When a project is successful, let them know it. When they know where they stand, they’ll be inspired to work hard and do amazing things for you.last_img read more

Rooster From Atop Iconic Notre Dame Spire Found on Sidewalk

Posted on by

first_imgFrench President Emmanuel Macron has set a five year deadline to restore The Notre Dame Cathedral after Monday’s fire. Amid pledges of over a billion dollars from individuals and corporations to help restore the cathedral. The Vatican is also offering support.Pope Francis has phoned French President Macron to express his ‘solidarity’ over the fire just hours after the Vatican culture minister offered ‘art experts’ who could possibly advise on ‘reconstruction efforts.’ The pope has also sent an official message of condolence to the Archbishop of Paris in which he calls ‘Notre Dame’ the ‘architectural gem of a collective memory.’And a man walking down a Parisian sidewalk days after Monday’s fire found a metal rooster, or a cock as they call it in Paris lying pristinely on the pavement. It turns out is was the cock that flew off top of Notre Dame’s spire that collapsed and landed a few blocks away.Incroyable! Un de nos adhérents du @GMHistoriques a retrouvé dans les décombres le coq du haut de la flèche de #NotreDame Son intuition était la bonne!
