Using iCloud For Beginners

If you own an Apple product, you may want to start making use of one of its greatest features, iCloud. If you want to set up an iCloud account and understand all of its features, read on to make the most of your phone, tablet, or MacBook.  
What is iCloud? 
iCloud is an Apple based service which covers a variety of cloud-based products and services, including contact, emails, and calendar syncing, location device settings, and music storage. The iCloud in general is used, like other cloud based services, to store and keep your information and memories safe. This means if something happens to your device and you have been backing up your data to the cloud, you can re-access and re-install all of your data back onto your device, or onto a new one. This is great for many reasons, including providing you with the ability to make more use of your devices storage, as iCloud storage is separate to how much your device can store. You can also access all your data, photos, and music from any other internet-connected phone, laptop or tablet. All you need to know is your Apple ID and password. 

ScienceLogic Brings AIOps Technology to VMware Cloud on AWS Customers for Total Infrastructure Visibility

Grazed from ScienceLogic

ScienceLogic announced that ScienceLogic SL1 is available to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS. Powered by algorithmic IT operations (AIOps), SL1 delivers real-time context to operational data for customers of VMware Cloud on AWS.

VMware Cloud on AWS delivers a seamlessly integrated hybrid cloud that extends on-premises vSphere environments to a VMware SDDC running on Amazon EC2 elastic, bare-metal infrastructure that is fully integrated as part of the AWS Cloud.

SL1 enables VMware Cloud on AWS customers to understand how mission-critical applications connect to their underlying IT infrastructure through consistent, controlled visibility and management. Multi-dimensional topology maps, known as PowerMap, enable real-time views into infrastructure, application, and service health so IT can proactively and responsively inform, analyze, and act. This context is driven by PowerSync, which allows businesses to combine data across multiple silos and generate insights that drive automated actions, regardless of whether a service runs on-premises or in the cloud. The result offers enterprises the opportunity to stay ahead of market competition by applying machine-speed to ongoing business growth.

How Is Cloud Computing Revolutionizing The Real Estate Industry?

Article Written by Sally Perkins

In 2017, venture investors dedicated over $5 billion to real estate technology, over 150 times what they invested in 2010. The so-called ‘third phase' of real estate technology also relies heavily on cloud computing and embraces "sensors and virtual reality to create smarter spaces, machine learning to standardize and draw insights from industry data and platforms to more efficiently manage transaction services as well as to design, manage and outfit physical spaces." Real estate firms are realizing that in order to keep updated on the very latest listings, coordinate customer service, and store information on properties (including images and text), reliance on old-style servers just won't do the job. In steps cloud computing, to provide greater security, speed, and efficiency to a billion dollar industry.
