BEIJING, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Himfr.com, one of China's leading B2B search platforms with more than 30 B2B industry websites to its name, evaluates the Sharp SH9120C. The SH9120C is a high-end fashionable phone. Because it had been preceded by the SH9010C, SH9020C, and the SH9110C, all cross-screen phones, the cross-screen design has become the hallmark of Sharp models, and the SH9120C is no exception. However, the SH9120C has a variety of updated and new features. In appearance, Sharp mobile phones are generally similar to other flip phones; this model's large screen and large-sized keyboard make the measurements a lot larger. This kind of phone is fairly unisex. The SH9120C is also much larger than the SH9110C. Compared with the lively style of the SH9010C and SH9110C, the SH9120C is even more elegant. It has a mirror cross-screen design, and the shell co... (more)

Hiking Safety Measures Are Necessary In Springtime, States Josh Fink

NEW YORK, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Josh Fink has come out in support of a new article that details hiking safety tips for those planning to hit the trails now that warmer weather has arrived.

In 2015 he led the successful sale of Codero to a consortium of telecom companies.
92% of enterprises are using the public cloud today. As a result, simply being in the cloud is no longer enough to remain competitive. The benefit of reduced costs has normalized while the market forces are demanding more innovation at faster release cycles. Enter Cloud Native! Cloud Native enables a microservices driven architecture. The shift from monolithic to microservices yields a lot of benefits - but if not done right - can quickly outweigh the benefits. The effort required in monitoring, tracing, circuit breakers, routing, load balancing, etc. for thousands of microservices can become overwhelming. This talk will address strategies to run & manage microservices from 0 to 60 using Istio and other tools in a cloud native world.
As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embracing the reality of Serverless architectures, which are critical to developing and operating real-time applications and services. Serverless is particularly important as enterprises of all sizes develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives.
Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will become more and more prevalent. At the heart of this technology trend exists a custom solution to meet the needs and concerns of enterprise organizations, including compliance, security, and cost issues. The "new normal" of enterprise clients is a world of hybrid and multi-cloud solutions, and it is slowly changing the IT technology landscape. Better tools, better management, and easier adoption a...
