Experience open source with Dell at #RHSummit 2016

first_imgCeph is ideal for implementing software-defined storage (SDS) environments. We are proud to have delivered advanced SDS solutions powered by Ceph for our customers like University Alabama Birmingham, and Monash University. At Red Hat Summit we are previewing new SDS architectures jointly designed by Dell and Red Hat and powered by Ceph. These new SDS architectures illustrate how to fine tune and optimize Ceph storage for IOPS performance and scalability. Visit the Dell kiosk in the Storage Ecosystem Showcase in the expo hall to learn more.Red Hat has announced Ceph Storage 2, At Red Hat Summit Dell will preview a new open source storage solution – the DSS 7000 storage server with Red Hat Ceph Storage 2. We built the DSS 7000 to deliver maximum density and performance. It provides up to 720 TB of storage capacity using today’s 8TB drives. Visit the Dell expo booth #701 to experience the DSS 7000 and Ceph 2 live in person!Cloud performance benchmarking – Dell leading the way The SPEC Cloud IaaS 2016 Benchmark is the first specification by a major industry-standards performance consortium that defines how the performance of cloud computing infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) can be measured and evaluated for cloud platforms, either public or private. Get more details on SPEC Cloud in this recent blog.  Dell is the first – and so far only – cloud vendor either private or public to successfully execute the benchmark specification tests and to publish results. Learn more in our session on SPEC Cloud, Wed 06/29, 3:30 PM, room #2007. OpenStack Cloud – yes we have containersThe Dell Red Hat Cloud Solution is now in its 5th generation and is built on the solid foundation of Red Hat OpenStack Platform 8, and we integrate the latest generation PowerEdge server platforms with Intel Xeon E5-2600 V4 family of processors. Working with Intel and Red Hat we have completed phase one in our “on-ramp to cloud” program that developed and refined enterprise capabilities for VM migration, Instance HA and Host maintenance capabilities in OpenStack.At Red Hat summit we are pleased to introduce two new validated extensions for our OpenStack cloud solution powered with Red Hat OpenStack Platform.OpenShift by Red Hat: Platform-as-a-service (Paas) empowers developers to easily develop, deploy, and run applications. Integrates with a standardized container model powered Docker and Kubernetes to provide container-based write once/run anywhere capabilities.Red Hat Cloud Forms:  Implements a unified management framework with advanced life cycle management and hybrid cloud capabilities across OpenStack and other infrastructure and cloud platforms.Extensions to our core architecture are all thoroughly validated just like the core architecture to ensure a consistent seamless cloud environment that just works. Guidance for implementing and optimizing all of the validated extensions is provided in technical guides posted on Dell Tech Center.

Network. Experience open source.” Dell is proud to be a Platinum sponsor of Red Hat Summit 2016. We invite attendees to experience Dell and Red Hat’s industry propelling solutions powered by open source engines. At this Summit we are showcasing our OpenStack Cloud and Software-defined Storage solutions with Red Hat Ceph, and exploring developments around new cloud performance benchmarks.Storage formally known as Inktank Before Ceph was acquired by Red Hat they were known as InkTank Storage. We have been integrating Ceph into our solutions for a number of years, and it has been a fun journey to work with the Inktank and Ceph teams and watch Ceph evolve and grow into a de facto standard for open source storage. Dell has probably the widest set of solution offerings with Ceph in the industry. At Red Hat summit we are showcasing Ceph in multiple solutions:Ceph plays a key role and is the default storage environment in our Dell OpenStack Cloud Solution. Ceph delivers massively scalable block and object storage and we have engineered this architecture to bring together the combination of a powerful, scalable core architecture with a portfolio of validated extensions.center_img Visit us at Red Hat Summit expo in booth #701, connect and network with Dell experts, and take a deep-dive into trending topics.

Hector Bellerin speaks out after Arsenal defeat and reacts to crowd booing

first_imgArsenal’s players looked totally dejected at the end of the game (Picture: Getty)The match was interim manager Freddie Ljungberg’s first at the Emirates and the defeat will have done little to help his chances of getting the job permanently, though Bellerin insists he has the squad’s backing.He added: ‘For us, Freddie has helped the team a lot in this week. He’s added a lot of energy in the dressing room. Whoever is there we are going to give 100%, it’s our job as players, and we’re going to give 100% for Freddie.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City Comment Brighton’s win means Arsenal have not won in the league since the start of October (Getty)Asked about the booing, the Spanish defender told Amazon Prime Video: ‘I think from the pitch, from how hard we’ve been working this week, from everything, every single player has given their 100%, the coaches as well.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT‘When we come out on that pitch, everyone wants to win. Everyone wants to give their best for that shirt. Sometimes I don’t know, as I say, it’s hard to say it.‘I felt like, especially in the second half, the team was full of energy, we had a goal disallowed – which was rightly disallowed anyway – but as I say it’s just hard to take for us. We need to keep going, we cannot give up, we need to keep playing like the second half and I’m sure 100% the results will come.’More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?

Impossible to hold Olympics unless COVID-19 pandemic is contained — Japan’s PM

first_imgPrime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Wednesday that the Tokyo Olympics may not take place next year unless the coronavirus pandemic is contained.His comment has come as the Japanese capital city’s governor requested an extension of Japan’s state of emergency. The International Olympic Committee and the Japanese government last month postponed the Games until July 2021 because of the coronavirus crisis.With the epidemic’s worldwide infection rate climbing and experts suggesting a vaccine is a long way off, doubts have been raised about the chances of holding the huge event next year.Abe said in response to an opposition lawmaker: “We’ve been saying the Olympic and Paralympic Games must be held in a complete form, in that athletes and spectators can all participate safely.“It would be impossible to hold the Games in such a complete form unless the coronavirus pandemic is contained.”Abe staked part of his legacy as Japan’s longest-serving premier on holding the Games and was hoping for a boom in tourism and consumer spending. Japan gathered some $3 billion in domestic sponsorship, an Olympic record, and spent close to $13 billion on preparations.The prime minister said on Wednesday that the Olympics “must be held in a way that shows (that) the world has won its battle against the coronavirus pandemic.”He went on to caution that Japan should “brace for a protracted battle”.Tokyo confirmed 47 new infections on Wednesday, private broadcaster Nippon Television reported.The national tally stands at 13,895 infections, including 413 deaths, national broadcaster NHK said. That tally is still low compared to other countries.However, critics say Japan is not doing enough testing to reveal the scope of a problem that has driven some hospitals to the brink.Reflecting that view, Tokyo governor Yuriko Koike told reporters that the situation in the Japanese capital remained “difficult”.He called on Abe’s cabinet to extend the nationwide emergency, which is due to end on May 6.RelatedPosts COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance FRSC to Schools: We’ll arrest, prosecute drivers who flout COVID-19 rules Sanwo-Olu: We’re committed to fulfilling promises to Lagosians Abe’s comments echoed statements made by other senior Japanese officials this week.Tokyo 2020 president Yoshiro Mori had told Nikkan Sports on Tuesday that the Games would be “scrapped” if they could not take place in 2021.Also on Tuesday, the head of the Japan Medical Association (JMA), Yoshitake Yokokura, told a news briefing that “unless an effective vaccine is developed, I expect hosting the Olympics will be difficult”.Reuters/NAN.Tags: CoronavirusCOVID-19IOCJapanolympicsPrime Minister Shinzo AbeTokyo Olympicslast_img read more
