Scope and Trends in Cloud Computing Career

Cloud Computing provides on-demand computing resources which may be either data centers or applications on a pay for use basis or a service over the internet. It’s a kind of computing that relies on sharing a group of virtual and/or physical resources instead of deploying personal or local software and hardware. Today, cloud computing is one of the hottest trends in IT as it is all about simplifying the lives of users and saving their money. Some reasons why every…

High-speed quantum encryption may help secure the future internet

Quantum encryption may be one step closer to wide-scale use thanks to a newly developed system. The system is capable of distributing encryption codes at megabit-per-second rates, five to 10 times faster than existing methods and on par with current internet speeds when running several systems in parallel. New theory shows that the technique is secure from common security attacks. Source link…

Researchers measure magnetic moment with greatest possible precision — ScienceDaily

High-precision measurement of the g-factor eleven times more precise than before / Results indicate a strong similarity between protons and antiprotons. The magnetic moment of an individual proton is inconceivably small, but can still be quantified. The basis for undertaking this measurement was laid over ten years ago, and physicists of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, GSI Darmstadt, and the RIKEN research institute in Japan are still performing experiments to measure this…

Drones, high-tech camera revamp archaeology

In this Nov. 14, 2017 photo, Dartmouth’s Chad Hill readies a drone to be flown over a site of a Shaker Village in Enfield, NH. Hill and his Dartmouth colleague Jesse Casana are using drones equipped with thermal imaging cameras to study a half-dozen archaeological sites around the world. The cameras use heat differences between stone and the soil surrounding it to identify structures below the surface like foundations of buildings, which then can be further explored.

Startup Trexo Robotics takes another step forward with children’ ‘Iron Man’ exoskeleton

Manmeet Maggu and Rahul Udasi, pictured here shortly after completing U of T’s Creative Destruction Lab accelerator program, took home first prize in a Sunnybrook Hospital pitch competition . Credit: Chris Sorensen Just like the purposeful gait of their child-sized robotic exoskeleton, the entrepreneurs behind University of Toronto startup Trexo Robotics are propelling their young business forward one step at at time. Co-founders Manmeet Maggu and Rahul Udasi this week took first prize in a pitch competition organized by the…

The sky’s the limit for sustainable wooden skyscrapers

5 King St in Brisbane will be the world’s tallest timber commercial building. Credit: University of Queensland Australia will soon hold the record for the world’s tallest timber office building at 5 King St Brisbane, and with the help of The University of Queensland’s new research hub, wooden skyscrapers could become the norm. ARC Future Timber Hub (Australian Research Council) which launched today will be Australia’s leading timber research collaboration, bringing together experts from industry, government and academia. Structural…

Incremental Data Capture for Oracle Databases at LinkedIn: Then and Now

We designed and developed an independent framework to propagate Oracle schema changes (DDLs) to Kafka. It allows near-synchronous propagation of schema changes through integration with the Oracle release framework. It also makes APIs available for on-demand invocation by downstream (e.g., Brooklin) consumers. Reliability: Operability, scalability, metrics The building blocks for our data capture “Version 2.0” discussed in detail above build several key capabilities to ensure the smooth running and operation of our data capture system. Monitoring and auto-remediation: We can…

The New DDoS Landscape

News outlets and blogs will frequently compare DDoS attacks by the volume of traffic that a victim receives. Surely this makes some sense, right? The greater the volume of traffic a victim receives, the harder to mitigate an attack – right? At least, this is how things used to work. An attacker would gain capacity and then use that capacity to launch an attack. With enough capacity, an attack would overwhelm the victim’s network hardware with junk traffic such that…

Want to try Warp? We just enabled the beta for you

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the United States. It’s a holiday for getting together with family characterized by turkey dinner and whatever it is that happens in American football. While celebrating with family is great, if you use a computer for your main line of work, sometimes the conversation turns to how to setup the home wifi or can Russia really use Facebook to hack the US election. Just in case you’re a geek who finds yourself in that position this…
