Statistical and analytical research and data on the domain name industry, second quarter 2016

New data from Verisign is very exciting on the fact that, approximately 7.9 million domain name registrations were added to the internet in the second quarter of 2016.
According to VeriSign (Domain Name Industry Brief), this momentum brings the total number of domain name registrations to approximately 334.6 million across all top-level domains (TLDs) as of June 30, 2016.
I can observe that, the increase of approximately 7.9 million domain name registrations globally equates to a growth rate of 2.4 percent over the first quarter of 2016. Domain name registrations have grown by 38.2 million, or 12.9 percent, year over year.
The .com and .net TLDs lead the excitement in the second quarter of 2016, reaching a combined total of approximately 143.2 million domain name registrations in the domain name base. This represents a 7.3 percent increase year over year. 
New .com and .net domain name registrations totaled 8.6 million during the second quarter of 2016. In the second quarter of 2015, new…

The new Aixplorer® Ultrasound Platform

At the core of stakes we have: enhanced performance, improved workflow and efficiency as well as new features and imaging modes. In effect, the release of a new upgrade of Aixplorer, the UltraFast™ ultrasound system includes enhanced performance, improved workflow and efficiency, as well as the following new features: New Aixplorer breast package; TriVu real-time simultaneous mode with B-mode, ShearWave™ Elastography (SWE™) and color flow imaging; Extended Angio PL.U.S. (PLanewave UltraSensitive™ Imaging), and New Research package.

The YVC-300, as a portable conference Phone for small collaboration spaces

At the core of stakes, we have the ability turn any personal device into a conference phone. I can observe that, designed for groups of four to six people and with portability in mind, the YVC-300 can be perfect choice for organizations that want to offer high-quality group communication solutions without the cost of dedicated equipment for every conference room or open collaboration space. 
Users can connect it to their PC-based audio, video and Web conferencing client via USB connection and return it at the end of the meeting.

Here is why the multi-layered approach to security in so important

It is now obvious that, in order to gain a holistic overview of the network, technology managers need to design the infrastructure from the bottom up, starting with the physical layer, comprising devices and other hardware, and working up to the application layer.
This multi-layered approach to security gives IT managers more visibility into the network so that they can see what data is coming into and leaving the network and can implement controls as required.

Daunting realities in the healthcare industry, when it comes to Cyber Security

From Lack of understanding and awareness, to the challenges related to budget, the healthcare industry is sick when it comes to protecting infrastructure and information.
Medical records are being increasingly targeted by cybercriminals, and healthcare institutions were twice more likely to be targeted than other organizations.

The biggest threat, says KPMG,comes from external attackers at 65% ,while malware tops the list of information security concerns. Daunting realities include: Valuable data. Data collected and stored by hospitals and other organisations, such as medical aid schemes, is up to ten times more valuable to cybercriminals than credit card information. Given the value of this data on the black market, cyber-attacks are becoming ever more sophisticated in their attempts to hack healthcare institutions.Ageing infrastructure. Hospitals are melting pots of outdated infrastructure, old operating systems and state-of-the-art medical technology,…

Mirantis + Intel and Google to package OpenStack into Docker containers to be managed by Kubernetes.

At the center of stakes, we have: leverage Kubernetes in Fuel to turn OpenStack into a true microservice application, bridging the gap between legacy infrastructure software and the next generation of application development.
We also have: a new delivery model that allows faster consumption of updates, help to accelerate the deployment of tens of thousands of new clouds, andKubernetes container orchestration to automate OpenStack operations at scale.
In effect, based on the reality that, Docker emerges as the standard container image format and Kubernetes as the standard for container orchestration, Mirantis in collaboration with Google and Intel is evolving the architecture of the purpose-built lifecycle management tool for OpenStack, Fuel, and related OpenStack projects, to enable the use of Kubernetes as orchestration engine; package OpenStack into Docker containers to be managed by Kubernetes.

Run high performance workloads in OpenStack

Operators in the private cloud’s industry need streamlined methods, tools and processes at each level of the production.
StackLight, for instance, as the purpose-built tooling for logging, monitoring and alerting of OpenStack assist operators in maximizing their private cloud uptime. 
Now, additional enhancements make it easier to run high performance workloads in OpenStack. 
Improvements to network function virtualization infrastructure (NFVI) performance include features such as SR-IOV, DPDK, NUMA CPU pinning, and huge pages.
Improvements were also made to application and service orchestration with TOSCA and validations for big data were performed with Cloudera and Hortonworks.

Simplify the task of operating private OpenStack clouds

Simplify the task of operating private OpenStack clouds is indispensable mostly when it comes to enhance, security, productivity and performance.
In effect, we live in a digital era where data-centric apps are at the core powerful and critical stakes. Therefore OpenStack needs streamlined tools for its entire lifecycle.  I welcome new Enhancements to Fuel, the OpenStack management software project that simplify the task of operating private OpenStack clouds. 
For those who are unfamiliar, Cloud operators can use Fuel to scale the cloud up or down, selectively make changes to their configuration, and deploy new functionality to an existing cloud, such as Murano, a self-service application orchestration and catalog.
Operators of large-scale infrastructure can now export Fuel configuration values into 3rd party configuration management tools.

Mirantis OpenStack 9.0 in the Private Cloud Operation’s industry

At the core of stakes, we have: Post-deployment operations, lifecycle management of OpenStack, and the Mitaka Openstack release.
In effect, Mirantis the OpenStack Company is making operating a private cloud easier with the release of Mirantis OpenStack 9.0. 
Then, one can observe that, based on the Mitaka Openstack release, Mirantis OpenStack 9.0 includes a rich set of features to simplify lifecycle management of OpenStack.
