UK charity Tearfund has deployed Hypergrid hyper-converged infrastructure and saved nearly £1m. The company replaced its traditional server, SAN, and networking equipment, and has saved money on equipment, staff, power and space. Tearfund has around 500 UK staff, with 1,000 worldwide, and runs two datacentres, one near London for its primary production infrastructure and a secondary disaster recovery location in south Wales.
Scale Computing has added two hyper-converged infrastructure appliances to its product range, the “workhorse” 5150D and the company’s first all-flash HCI box, the 1150F. The 5150D is a 2U appliance, where all previous Scale Computing HC3 series appliances have been 1U. It is described by founder and CEO Jeff Ready as “a large workhorse” with up to half a petabyte of storage capacity.
Startup WekaIO has emerged from stealth with NAS software-defined storage that provides file access storage that can scale to trillions of files without the performance hits that affect some competitors. WekaIO is deployed by virtual machine or container on x86 servers and takes aim at users with lots of very small files, particularly in analytics use cases including, for example, finance sector and machine learning, as well as large file scenarios such as movie rendering.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
