Amazon Web Services (AWS) just made it easier for organizations to move large volumes of database workloads to the cloud. The company this week announced new integration between its Database Migration Service (DMS) and its Snowball Edge data transfer appliance. First unveiled a year ago at re:Invent 2016, Snowball Edge is a ruggedized container that lets organizations physically transfer up to 100TB of data into and out of their on-premises environments to the AWS cloud.
On late Tuesday, ride-sharing app Uber disclosed that its Amazon Web Services (AWS) account was hacked last year, compromising the personal information of 57 million users worldwide, including 600,000 U.S. drivers. Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, who came into his post just this past August, said in a statement that he only learned of the hack "recently," even though it happened in "late 2016" under the watch of his predecessor, Travis Kalanick. Kalanick resigned as Uber's CEO in June.
Cloud computing users collectively rack up $10 billion per year in unnecessary costs, with the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform being the biggest money drain. That's according to cloud resource management firm RightScale, which released data earlier this month based on its customers' cloud spending. The company calculated that roughly 35 percent of an average cloud customer's bill is wasted spend, five percentage points higher than self-reported estimates.
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".
