Sustained bee mortality not just alarming for environmentalists

Sustained bee mortality not just alarming for environmentalists

For many people, hard-working bees are a natural part of an ambience associated with the warmer time of year.

In the days of Netflix, amazon Video and other video-on-demand streaming services, a slow Internet connection is frustrating for private users. For companies, a slow or unreliable Internet connection can result in a significant competitive disadvantage in increasingly globalised markets. Viewed at an economic level, the loss of productivity and the competitive disadvantages resulting from a lack of data infrastructure are enormously damaging for the...

Refurbished: definition of a contemporary phenomenon – an overview

Refurbished: definition of a contemporary phenomenon – an overview

Everyone is talking about refurbishing at the moment. This is not surprising in a time where ecological awareness is on the increase. But however welcome this tendency may be, the fact that only a few consumers understand what this concept actually means cannot be ignored. So this article is an attempt to plug these obvious knowledge gaps: initiating you, the environmentally-conscious reader, into the mysteries...

Data centres and the importance of air conditioning

Data centres and the importance of air conditioning

Where waste heat is produced, cooling is necessary. Data centres are particularly genned up on this: in a data centre, hundreds of switches, CPUs, RAM modules in the terabyte range and power-hungry GPUs perform their duties. Without the appropriate expertise, a correspondingly poor air cooling of server racks & co. threatens - and that can become expensive very quickly. The importance of air conditioning in data...

Clouds are made of steel

Clouds are made of steel

Cloud Computing - today, in part two of our series, I would like to look at the three service models and the deployment models used in cloud computing. The infrastructure level is the base and provides the functionality on which the other levels are built. A well-known offering in the IaaS area is, for example, the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). Comparable with hardware you buy in shops, you can book a virtual machine (VM) at Amazon, which acts like a new computer: usually operated with Linux (but here as well, the user is free to decide and can also use other operating systems), you can log in to this machine and find nothing apart from a freshly installed operating system.


What are clouds?

What are clouds?

We’ll be lucky if anyone reads this sentence to the end, cloud computing is old hat after all.But that just depends! The truth is, all larger (IT) organisations have something to say about it, the young and successful in Berlin who’ve launched a startup in this sector (or work in one) - or privately, most smartphone users already take advantage of cloud services, perhaps without realising it: Sharing services (photo sharing for family members,...), backups, media data (music) as well as address books and calendars with various providers - this can certainly be seen as a cloud computing.
