While software-defined WAN is currently the hot technology in the IT networking field, not everyone can take advantage of it. IPsec tunnels and dynamic multipoint virtual private networks, or DMVPNs, still have a place in the enterprise in 2018 and will continue to be viable options for years to come. That said, IT leaders should figure out which remote connectivity options are optimal for each individual use case. Let's look at the technologies and go over the pros and cons of each.
Instance pricing models are highly confusing, and yet they're worth the investment required to learn more about them. For IT managers and CIOs, understanding cloud instance pricing models will go a long way to better visualizing cloud strategy goals and making roadmap discussions more productive. All the major infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) service providers, including Amazon Web Services Inc. , Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform , offer pre-packaged server instance types.
One common theme regarding failed internet-of-things, or IoT, projects tends to be a lack of planning and foresight put into the underlying network. So often, the focus is placed on the configuration and deployment of IoT sensors, what data they're going to collect and where that data will eventually be stored. While the network is certainly a key component when transmitting IoT data from point A to point B, proper network design for IoT is far more involved than many expect.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
