by Angela Guess A recent press release states, ?A recent Adobe survey of U.S. consumers revealed people spend on average 7.8 hours per day engaging with digital content?a figure that jumps to 11.1 hours per day among teenagers. Brands must produce, execute and iterate on compelling content at ever-increasing velocity to engage with consumers, which [?]

It?s not widely known, but MySQL, Postgres, and NoSQL are among Docker?s most popular images. Microsoft has joined the fray with Docker as a feature of Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10, and SQL Server 2017 [?]

One such tradition for my family is watching National Lampoon?s Christmas Vacation. This year was no different. During a scene where Frank Shirley [?]
Click to learn more about author Paul Stanton. There is a disconnect between the goals of DevOps, and the realities of working with relational data. Relational databases are core to many enterprise applications, and the Gartner Group projects that 80% of new projects will rely on relational data through 2020 (available courtesy of Microsoft here).

Data is clearly not what it used to be! Organizations of all types are finding new uses for data as part of their digital transformations. Examples abound in every industry, from jet engines to grocery stores, for data becoming key to competitive advantage. I call this new data because it is very different from the financial and ERP data that we are most familiar with. That old data was mostly transactional, and privately captured from internal sources, which drove the client/server revolution.
Containers offer the promise of portability and agility: the ability to move your applications from a developer's laptop to your internal datacenter, and out to different cloud providers with little trouble right? They offer the ability to spin up new, custom versions of your software to quickly meet contractual deadlines which were signed last minute, or maybe even provide your customers with self service. They start faster, and are easier to move around than virtual machines. Right?
by Angela Guess A recent press release states, ?Researchers from the Department of Energy?s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have for the first time shown that neural networks ? a form of artificial intelligence ? can accurately analyze the complex distortions in spacetime known as gravitational lenses 10 million times faster than traditional [?]
Amazon?s Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2 has changed quite a bit in the last five years, so whether you are new to EC2 or an old hand, it?s worth a look at how to launch your own EC2 instances today. (For a deeper primer on EC2, check out Sean Hall?s EC2 tutorial at InfoWorld from 2012, but note he?s doing things the command-line way, whereas today you can do things the graphical way, as this post shows. Still, if you want to know what Route 53 and so on mean, read Hall?s article.)
The first ever close-up images of Jupiter's gargantuan hurricane, the Great Red Spot, are beginning to trickle through from NASA's Juno spacecraft after it completed its historic fly-by a few days ago.
When a burst of light ejects an electron from an atom, the later detection of two charged particles masks a great deal of intermittent quantum mechanical complexity. Villeneuve et al. provide a striking look at the wavelike properties of the electron just as it emerges from neon, expelled by two photons from an attosecond pulse train in a strong infrared field. The phase distribution displays the characteristic three-node structure of an f-wave, which the Stark shift from the strong field appears to select with a single magnetic quantum number of 0.
