Cloud Marketplace in the News: A Strategy Built Around You

first_imgProducts, platforms, service offerings—such is the typical news stream coming out of big tech events like VMworld Las Vegas and its EMEA twin, held this week in Barcelona.For Dell EMC, it’s a different story.In August, we used our VMworld Vegas presence to make a different kind of announcement, one that we call The Cloud Marketplace.The Cloud Marketplace is not a product, group of products or even a place to purchase products. It’s an expression of our cloud strategy, which includes cloud platforms, cloud-enabled infrastructure, cloud consulting services, and cloud consumption models, all built around the way IT professionals experience cloud today.The emphasis of the Marketplace, however, is on you: how real people engage with cloud resources– whether private, public, hybrid, on-premises or off– to achieve a multi-cloud strategy that delivers what they need, when they need it, with consumption flexibility that works for a variety of situations.That said, we announced a few significant additions this week, two of which align under the Marketplace’s Cloud Platform category:We’re including the newly-updated VxBlock system 1000 to the integrated platform optionThe VxRail appliance integrated platform is updated with new advances for simpler deployment, transparent management, and tighter next-gen VMware integrationIntegrated platforms for the winWhen it comes to implementing a cloud platform, choice is essential, as every organization has unique core competencies and each project its specific goals. Because of this, we develop and organize our cloud platforms across three distinct categories:The DIY cloud building blocks implementation option allows you to design the platform and build it yourself. This option offers the most control of cloud platform design and component choice and will be most adaptable to custom requirements.The Reference Architecture option lets you choose from a list of certified components and assemble your platform to the specifications laid out in a reference architecture. This reduces configuration risk and accelerates project timeline. While this option is less flexible in terms of component choices, it provides peace of mind regarding the compatibility of system components and preferred software packages.With the Integrated cloud platform implementation option, you purchase a pre-engineered cloud platform that can be up-and-running in a relatively short amount of time. This option provides the most effortless experience for “day-2” operations, with streamlined update and upgrade procedures taking much of the risk out of ongoing platform management.The integrated platform option includes Dell EMC market-leading converged and hyperconverged architectures, like the newly updated VxRail appliance and VxBlock system. Enterprises worldwide run their VMware-based clouds using these turnkey systems that bring together compute, storage, networking and VMware vSphere virtualization to advance digital transformation and create a more common cloud management experience.While the focus this week is on enhancing our integrated platforms, we continuously investing and innovate across all of cloud platform options to ensure they map to changing customer demands and provide ever-greater value to the data center.Powered by consumptionBehind every great cloud strategy is a consumption model that delivers the right resources at pricing terms that make sense for individual businesses.Dell EMC Cloud Consumption, backed by Dell Financial Services, is a core component of the Cloud Marketplace, providing customers with choice and flexibility in the way they plan their cloud initiatives.Today, we introduced Data Center Utility to our Dell EMC Cloud Marketplace Consumption Model options. As part of the Cloud Marketplace, you’ll find three consumption options that give you the best of both worlds when it comes to building a cloud operating model: all the aspects of control that a private cloud delivers with the benefits of the public cloud consumption experience you’ve come to expect, like elastic capacity, metered usage and an OpEx model.The Flex on Demand option provides elastic capacity with instant access to the right level of resources. A baseline of capacity is provided with additional buffer capacity. Buffer usage is metered to so you only pay for the buffer you use.The Cloud Flex option provides an Opex Model featuring decreasing monthly payments and a flexible return option, so you can use the resources for as little as 12 months.The Data Center Utility option is a custom solution that provides maximum flexibility for resource consumption– with or without professional services. All usage is metered based on a metric determined with each customer **Always be innovatingOur focus on the Marketplace approach to cloud operations helps you make cloud choices based on the way you use cloud resources today—a one-stop shop for evaluating options and gathering information in a complex cloud world. Today’s enhancements to our integrated platforms and cloud consumption options represent an ongoing commitment to continuously evolving our full scope of cloud solutions—from platforms to services to consumption— as your requirements change, innovation forges ahead and new opportunities become available.

Copley Hospital, nurses renegotiate contract to save $300,000

first_imgIn the spirit of cooperation, Copley Hospital and the United Nurses and Allied Professionals Local 5109 have renegotiated its contract. The newly extended three year contract will create a savings of nearly $300,000.  A tentative agreement on the contract was reached on Tuesday, May 11, and confirmation made on Wednesday, May 12. The original contract was supposed to run through 2011.“I am very impressed with the members of UNAP,” says Mel Patashnick, President of Copley Hospital. “In approving this contract, they demonstrated their understanding of how Copley is affected by the difficult economy. Their care for the long-term well-being of Copley is apparent in the tough decision they made at a time it needed to be made.”“Healthcare is dynamic,” explains Sue Lucas, RN and President of Copley UNAP. “In negotiations with the current administration, we saw responsiveness on the part of both parties to work together to address a critical issue and do what is best for the community and our hospital.”The new contract is effective May 30, 2010 through May 29, 2013. The new contract includes a reduced cost of living wage increase. The hospital has also scaled back on construction projects, capital purchases and travel in addition to increasing operational efficiency to reduce expenses.Both Patashnick and Lucas cited hard work, respect, and a commitment on both sides to patient care and patient safety as key factors in reaching an agreement so quickly.

NCAA Selection

first_imgAs the tourney continues on, we will finally see just how much the NCAA Selection Committee got the seeds right.  It is hard for me to believe that they seem to work so hard to prove a point.  The point I am referring to is their yearly snub of certain conferences.  It took several years before Gonzaga got any respect from the Selection Committee.  Of course, when they finally gave them a #1 seed, they made sure that they would not make it to the final four by loading their bracket with power teams.This year it seemed they did the same thing to Wichita State.  Wichita was not supposed to make it to the Final Four last year, but they did!  I am sure the Committee kept hoping that someone would beat them so they didn’t have to give them a number one seed this year.  Even though Kansas lost 9 games, they were still a #2 seed.  I am sure Kansas would have to lose 15 or more games before the NCAA would keep them out of the tourney.The Committee has at least been forced to recognize the smaller conference by at least taking them into the tourney.  You can see that they do not respect any of them, because most of them are #15 or #16 seeds.  Who will be the Florida Atlantic or DCU this year?last_img read more

Week 16 Fantasy FLEX rankings

first_imgIt’s Week 16 and time to win your fantasy football championships, and we’re here with one final week of FLEX rankings. You’ve probably gotten to the finals with very good rosters, so you might not even need the full 120 names we have on hand, but they’re there if you need them.The biggest standout this week has to be Breshad Perriman, all the way up at No. 23 and totally deserving in a great matchup in maybe the pass-happiest offense in the league.There’s also the potential for a high Vikings RB if Dalvin Cook is out and either Alexander Mattison or Mike Boone is playing — whichever back starts there is no worse than a FLEX play. WEEK 16 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerWhen you’re making these last-minute lineup decisions, it’s also important to consider your chances of winning your matchup (especially with some Saturday games potentially tipping the scales). As a heavy underdog, you may want to take a chance on a receiver with upside, like Justin Watson, while maybe you stick with a more boring option in a tough matchup like Carlos Hyde if you’re favored.WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endOf course, your situations are all very context-based as you try to take home the crown, so if you have any specific Sunday morning questions, be sure to hit us up on Twitter @SN_Fantasy.
