Realize Your Path to Safety and Security Digital Transformation with Dell EMC Isilon

first_imgIsilon is uniquely differentiated from traditional storage to enable organizations manage high volume of safety and security data with greater reliability and scalability. With traditional NAS solutions, the larger the data environment becomes, the more complex and time-consuming it is to manage the growing number of storage silos. And at some point, system performance begins to degrade. As shown below, Isilon OneFS is a single file system with single namespace and enables a single volume to be shared by all the camera streams—thus saving enormous amounts of time in initial set-up. Isilon enables organizations to build a scale-out data lake where they can store their safety and security data, lower management costs and eliminate islands or silos of storage.Figure 1: Management of Data (Traditional NAS vs. Isilon)Due to their inherently complex architecture, traditional storage systems are difficult to scale – from both a performance and capacity perspective. Another issue with a traditional system is that, as data volume grows and the system begins to fill, system performance typically begins to decline, making it harder to meet SLAs and line-of-business user requirements. Figure 2 shows it’s easy to expand capacity and performance with Isilon’s scale-out architecture – simply add additional Isilon nodes as needed to your existing cluster. This means that with Isilon, it is easy to maintain and improve SLAs as your data environment grows in scale and with additional workloads. Organizations can increase cluster capacity to PBs of storage by simply adding another node — with no downtime or disruption of their safety and security solution.Figure 2: Ability to Scale (Traditional NAS vs. Isilon)Traditional NAS storage environments are management intensive. Storage tiering can be done but it is typically a very manual process. Traditional NAS solutions also often require manual tracking and relocation of volumes to eliminate hot spots. Unlike traditional NAS which uses RAID for data protection, Isilon uses a much more efficient and highly resilient Reed-Solomon erasure code data protection that enables 80 percent or more storage utilization. This means with Isilon, you need less raw storage to support data storage requirements than you would need with traditional NAS. As shown in Figure 3, Isilon offers automated, policy-based storage tiering between All-Flash, Hybrid and Archive performance tiers so that you can optimize your storage resources. Features such as auto-balancing and auto-failover help IT admins / system administrators sleep better at night knowing their data is safeguarded.Figure 3: Data Availability and Reliability (Traditional NAS vs. Isilon)To learn more about how Dell Technologies can help modernize storage infrastructure to support your digital transformation goals, visit our website.[1] Ranking by 3Q2019 vendor revenue.

U.S. Coal Exec Sees Demise of Uinta Basin Production

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Christopher Coats for SNL:In early 2015, Murray Energy Corp. founder, CEO and President Robert Murray told a Miami audience that the Uinta Basin of Colorado and Utah had been “virtually destroyed” and that the “worst is yet to come” Murray now updates his assessment of the region, warning of a more rapid decline, potentially driving westbound Uinta coal production to zero by 2030.“If anything, it’s going down at a more accelerated rate than I even imagined,” Murray said, adding that he had predicted the downturn years ago.Murray operates two mines in the Uinta Basin, Lila Canyon and West Ridge, both in Utah. West Ridge reported no coal production in the first quarter 2016.“Uinta Basin coal going west and power from coal in Utah going west is going to be totally eliminated in time so that’s why I said five years ago that the Uinta Basin would be destroyed,” Murray said, adding that Colorado wasn’t doing much better. “I see a rapid decline in the Uinta Basin,” he added.According to data compiled by S&P Global Market Intelligence, Uinta Basin production tumbled by over 26% since 2010, with jobs dropping by over a third during the same period. Last year, production in Colorado alone fell to a 23-year low.Full article ($): Murray Energy CEO sees end of westbound Uinta coal by 2030 U.S. Coal Exec Sees Demise of Uinta Basin Productionlast_img read more

Pope to wash young offenders’ feet

first_imgFaithLifestyle Pope to wash young offenders’ feet by: – March 28, 2013 113 Views no discussions Tweet Share Sharecenter_img Share Sharing is caring! Pope Francis celebrated Mass in St Peter’s Basilica on Thursday morningPope Francis will wash the feet of prisoners in a youth detention centre near Rome on Maundy Thursday.Thousands of pilgrims and tourists are arriving in Rome to attend ceremonies during the holy week ahead of Easter.The washing of feet on the Thursday before Easter is a Christian tradition commemorating Christ’s Last Supper.In a homily, the Pope urged priests to engage more with parishioners, saying: “It is not in soul-searching… that we encounter the Lord.”Worshippers should “leave Mass looking as if they had heard good news”, he told hundreds of cardinals, priests and bishops in St Peter’s Basilica.Easter is the most important festival in the calendar of the Catholic Church. Pope Francis celebrates Mass in St Peter’s Basilica, 28 March On Easter Sunday morning, the new Pope will deliver his first “Urbi et Orbi” message to the city of Rome and to the world.During his inaugural general audience Wednesday, Francis called for an immediate political solution to the conflict in the Central African Republic after last weekend’s coup.VolunteersThe new leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics has brought a new sense of simplicity to the Vatican, reports the BBC’s David Willey in Rome.He has broken with tradition for the foot-washing ceremony, which is normally performed on lay people in one of Rome’s basilicas.This time the Pope will visit the Casal del Marmo detention centre on the outskirts of Rome. Pope Benedict XVI visited the centre in 2007, but not for the Holy Thursday Mass. Only for the first two years of his pontificate did he perform the feet-washing himself, after which the task was delegated to priests.During the service, the Pope washes and kisses the feet of 12 people to replicate the Bible’s account of Jesus Christ’s gesture of humility towards his 12 apostles on the night before he was crucified.Some of the young detainees volunteered to have their feet washed, while others were given an invitation to help them overcome their embarrassment, the Catholic News Agency quoted the prison chaplain as saying.On Good Friday evening the Pope will carry a wooden cross and pray at a ceremony at Rome’s ancient amphitheatre, the Colosseum, commemorating Jesus’ crucifixion. And on Saturday evening Pope Francis will celebrate the main Easter Vigil Mass in St Peter’s Basilica.BBC Newslast_img read more
